  1. Thanks a lot for kind comments Mates! @cbk57 you should (must!) like this add with Ferrari F1 engine song, with 3 of my all time favorite Ferrari formula 1: Tipo 500, 312F1 and 312B... Pascal
  2. Hi, Just for fun DFV Cosworth piston and rod. Voilà. Pascal
  3. Hi, Thank you Mates! Decals session Once dry they are cleaned as well as the surrounding area. Then holes are done in the decals. More soon. Pascal
  4. Hi, A last sanding session on the metal body, then: - Primer, - Giallo Modena, - Rosso Corsa. Also started to spray primer on the first 200 metal rivets. 400 left to do... before GM&RC. Few of them will be White. Voilà. La suite bientôt! Pascal
  5. 1/12 MFH Ferrari 312F1. Still progressing on the Chris Amon Ferrari. 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. Pascal :ml:
  6. Hi, Thank you very much Mates! The “Bella Macchina” will soon receive her Rosso Corsa over a light coat of Giallo Modena... The Red Beauty is not mine, so she will (I hope!) soon join her new home painted. Busy on planes (big real ones) at the moment, I’ll might be able to work on it and make few progress this week-end! Thanks again for following this build! Pascal
  7. Good evening, Thank you. 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. Nothing more for today. More soon Pascal
  8. Hi, Thanks a lot Mates! Sanding, welding, riveting... Few 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. Oils and screws added on the steering wheel and, of course, the Cavallino Rampante! Voilà. Pascal
  9. Good evening and happy Thanksgiving, Thank you Tanks and tubes installed on the roll bar with serflex & Ty-Raps: Wires ready and waiting for the battery: Started to work on the coils: More quickly. Pascal
  10. Hi Mates, Thank you very much for your kind comments Some small progress on the Red Roaring Beauty! Test fit of the rear structure and tank. Battery and coils prepaired, masked and primed. Starting to connecting brakes and fuel pipes. Engine pan scratched. Alfa Rosso On the coils: ... And white (Titanium White GC) for the battery I hope you enjoy the WIP. More soon! Pascal
  11. Hi Mates, Thank you! Still progressing on the Bella Macchina Rossa! More soon. Pascal
  12. Really glad to hear that Paul Fisher and his family are safe. Speechless...
  13. Good evening Modelers, Thank you! I worked a bit on the small metal tanks and others parts that need to be cleaned and polished. Fuel filter/distributor and water expansion tank. I also made a quick test of the pedals on the front bulkhead. Pascal
  14. Good evening Mates, Washers were added on the wheels bolting. I also started to shape the front brakes Lockheed tubing and recycle à Modelers T fitting as a distributor. More quickly Pascal
  15. Me again... I’ve modified the throttle linkage. The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts. 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. The rear stab bar has been remade with 1mm ø brass, which was later chemically burnished. Now working on the connection rods. One started compared to raw white metal original part. Voilà, voilà. More soon! Pascal
