Ferrari 312F1, Chris Amon, Monaco 1967. MFH 1/12.

Recommended Posts

Hi ,
It’s been a long time since my last post...
A new Formula 1, from 1967 (Great year!)
Here are few pics of the engine.dsc02316.jpgdsc02315.jpgdsc02314.jpgdsc02311.jpgdsc02312.jpgdsc02313.jpg[brdsc02317.jpgdsc02320.jpgdsc02321.jpgdsc02322.jpgdsc02319.jpgdsc02318.jpgdsc02323.jpgdsc02324.jpgdsc02327.jpgdsc02328.jpgdsc02325.jpgdsc02326.jpg

I was not that happy with the kit throttle linkage... So I decided to build new ones with machined parts from RBMotion.

img_3213.jpg
It was also necessary to show a bit of interest regarding the exhaust and prepare the white metal parts of the Spaghetti:
img_2610.jpg
To prime and paint them:

Other parts are just treated to be left with a natural metal finish:

I prefer to solder them instead of gluing for evident reasons:
dsc02412.jpg
I played a bit with the iron in order to replicate weld seams :

The engine connected to the gear box and vice versa, and install for test fit in its compartment:

Next to the small 1/20 sister :

... and few accessories:

img_9018.jpg
The body is drilled in order to be riveted with MFH aluminium rivet:

The engine is... big. Almost the size of the 1/20 kit:

Rosso Corsa GC and  Semi Gloss Black ZP on the rear shocks and the steering wheel.

Dull Aluminium (Alclad) on the rear hubs

I’ve modified the throttle linkage.
The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts.

bcbe0310.jpg
The mesh over the stacks is now done, and I must admit it was pretty fun to form and install: I’m mot unhappy with the result.
Oils have also been applied on the heat shield as well as a portion of aluminium tape on both external sides.
I really like the view of the trumpets through the mesh.

Hi,

 

Thank you very much Modelers!

 

I worked a bit on the small metal tanks and others parts that need to be cleaned and polished.[br]Fuel filter/distributor and water expansion tank.
I also made a quick test of the pedals on the front bulkhead.487e0210.jpg2b6d2410.jpgc4da4e10.jpg9304d710.jpg

3c3ade10.jpg5cd36310.jpg28671510.jpge3594010.jpg

Test fit of the rear structure and tank of the Red Roaring Beauty.
Battery and coils prepaired, masked and primed.
Starting to connecting brakes and fuel pipes.
Engine pan scratched.23213310.jpg4fa70210.jpgceb4d510.jpgda059010.jpg
Alfa Rosso ZP on the coils:fc0ac610.jpg
... And white (Titanium White GC) for the battery
b2e56410.jpg

Machined bolting and washers have been installed on the wheels.
An old « T » connector is modified and used to complete the front wheels brakes master cylinder.

Tanks and tubes installed on the roll bar with serflex & Ty-Raps:adbf2e10.jpgc5d44410.jpgcf689a10.jpg

Wires ready and waiting for the battery:[br][br]

Hi,[br][br]Thanks a lot Mate![br][br]Sanding, welding, riveting...[br]12cf0510.jpg[br]2b3e6810.jpg[br]a613a110.jpg[br]da149310.jpg[br]da1ad410.jpg[br]ec206810.jpg[br]e0cb3e10.jpg[br]4bf6e310.jpg[br][br]Few 

And, at least, progress in the “office” area:
Paint session, dashboard session and gear lever/selector.
I was not that happy with the instruments, so I turned new ones and made brackets from aluminium foil.
Then test fitting.

very nice!

 

What kind of glue are you using for the white metal?

Hi,

 

Thank you.

I use CA glue and low temp solder.

Good evening everybody,

 

It’s been quite a long time since my last post...Sorry.

Aircrafts can’t wait!

 

Few progress on the Red Roaring Beauty!
Riveting the bathtub and the bulkhead is now done.
The wooden shifter knob is clear coated and test fitting is mandatory for the engine/cockpit/body subassembly.

The fitting holes and the front Ferrari logo area are masked.
I had a little « spot » on the Red, so I sanded it and made a touch up.
The dampers looked to simple for my taste.
I used modified F1 Specialties brass electronic connectors and chemically burnished them, then put a center adjustment screw and finally install the knob on the damper.
A Koni decal add a nice looking detail.
Aaaaannd, there is a new kid in town!
0.3 flat pattern: tested today and happy with the result😉

voilà.
More soon.

Also started to spray primer on the first 200 metal rivets. 
400 left to do... before GM&RC.
Few of them will be White.

Hi,

 

Thanks;)

 

Few progress and improvements.
I wanted to rebuild the anti roll bar with brass, but the original is good and almost hidden behind the tank...
The grills are installed on the radiator and the simulated inside tubing is still visible.
A new Sandow will replace the white metal part.

Hi,

Still progression both on the rear and front.
Difference between before and after work on white metal parts.
The small bucket doesn’t belong to the 312F1...but to a Tipo 500.
 I wanted to install thin aluminum sheet on the structure.

Hi,


I finally managed to finish the ignition coils system, after a last modification.

Small brass bridges of 0.5 were installed on each side of the water / oil tank to hold the "bungee cord" in place after having stretched it.

There was a problem with the length of the radiator supports, I redid them in brass of 0.8 which I brazed with silver solder.

It was also time to paint the radiator(s): No more beautiful polished metal appearance and place for brass.

... And decided to represent the welded appearance of brass radiators.
Metalcote Alu, oils ...

It only remains to connect the lines to the master cylinder of the front brakes, this is done for the clutch and the rear.

Hi

 

Thanks 😉

 

I decided to make the fuel cells connection faucet. It's made of white metal and a spare / modified distributor.

Hi,

 

Decisive assembly if any, the engine is assembled with the chassis.

Assy is done with Loctite 401 and reinforced, as usual, with screws, washers and bolts.

The inside of the bathtub is done, the seat is finally installed as the side water pipe and the gear selector.

The fuel valve is installed.
