  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hi Mates, Thank you! Still progressing on the Bella Macchina Rossa! More soon. Pascal

    Paul Fisher is Safe

    Really glad to hear that Paul Fisher and his family are safe. Speechless...
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Hi, Thanks a lot to all of you for the kind comments Mates. Alclad White Alu and Klear Kote. Wheels prep & paint session: Primer Alclad Black: Pale Gold Alclad: Liquid mask and tape removed: Time for oils: Test fit of anti roll bar, gearbox and half side transmission. Pascal
  12. Sorry... but me Agaaaain! Rosso Corsa GC and Semi Gloss Black ZP on the rear shocks and the steering wheel. Dull Aluminium (Alclad) on the rear hubs Test fit of the front end: Thermic screen adjusted and drilled for the roll cage: (Titanium White GC): Not very happy with the Dull Alu, so black Alclad is sprayed: Tubes installed in the radiator and started to work on the rear suspension components: Front brakes scoops are painted white: test fitting of the bathtub: Weld seams on the 3in1 exhaust parts: Pascal
  13. Me again. Engine progress. I was not that happy with the kit throttle linkage... So I decided to build new ones with machined parts from RBMotion. It was also necessary to show a bit of interest regarding the exhaust and prepare the white metal parts of the Spaghetti: To prime and paint them: Other parts are just treated to be left with a natural metal finish: I prefer soldering them instead of gluing for évident reasons: 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 : Rear brake discs before assembly on the gear box: ... and few accessories: Modification of the rear hubs in order to adapt machined parts: Time for primer: 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: More soon. I hope you enjoy this WIP. Pascal
  14. Hi Mates, it’s been a long time since my last post... A new Formula 1, from 1967 (Greaaaat year!) Here are few pics of the engine. More soon. Pascal
  15. Me again... And others with "clothes"! Voilà . Pascal
