  1. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Hi lads! On our blueprints/drawings I see no sign whatsoever of oil and fuel filters. Surely, they have to be there...don't they? Part 103c on the kit (lower right side of the engine) is positioned where I would presume there to be an oil-filter, but looks nothing like what we see on the new HR pic 2. Can anyone shed any light on this please???? Cheers, H

    Dear Olivier, CONGRATULATIONS on a STUNNING result, my friend!!!!!! Cheers, H

    I'm sure you are correct Hannes. Missing evidence usually turns up when the model is nearly finished. lol. Cheers, H
  4. H's 806 1:12 scratchbuild

    Dear Hannes, thank you.The left-side triangular flange must have the same geometry as the opposite side for weight transference etc. Don't forget, drawing 2 is probably the following years car ( that, sadly, was never meant to be). On the right-hand side I have not yet drilled for the steering support....that will be some time in the near future when that area is finalised. You have good eyes my friend! I know I can count on you to not let me forget any single detail along the journey........thank you now and in advance! Thank you Olivier, I hadn't left my bench, but "outside-pressures" (life etc lol) sometimes mean very little meaningful time at the bench to actually achieve something....hope that doesn't sound too mad! Thank you Mr C.......coming from you, I take that as a thorough compliment.I hope you keep following! Dr.Fiat.... thank you, I'm glad you like! Welcome along for the ride! Cheers, H

    I love the work you have done, Olivier.....you are the first man in 90yrs to realise this sexy little race-car!!! Be VERY proud my friend!! btw there's an update on my thread. Cheers, H
  6. H's 806 1:12 scratchbuild

    Hi guys!! Time for an update on proceedings. Firstly, I remade the right-hand side engine mount, to include the steering stops. I then set about making the lower parts.with 0,5mm nickel-silver sheet. Painted and bolted in place with M0,8 nuts/bolts..... Still very prototypical at the moment and these parts may have to be re-made or tweeked, but that's all part of the fun!! Hope you enjoy and thanks for watching. More soon! Cheers, H

    Hi guys, I think the "missing rivets" are exactly that!! Nothing else there....just a hole! These HR pics are of the prototype/test car, so maybe the mechanics only put in just enough rivets to keep it in place! Cheers, H

    My apologies Hannes, I think you misunderstood....It's just a bench-top, mini-drill that sits on my table, not a bench. It's like you said! Cheers, H
  9. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Dear Hannes, I bought a cheapo mini bench drill last year for about 25 pounds and it has been a life-saver....especially for this project! Imagine trying to drill all the holes in my solid steel chassis legs by hand with the pin-vice..........it would have taken forever and thousands of drill-bits!! Well worth the money imho! Cheers, H

    Immaculate work, as always, Hannes! Great job! Ha Ha!! Yes my friend, it's amazing what you can find in the home to cannibalise!! Cheers, H
  11. Italeri, FIAT 806 ... 1/12th

  12. A BIG Rolls Royce

    A HUUUUGE!!!!!!! thumbs up Mr. C! This is spectacular in every sense of the word! I doff my cap to you, Sir. Cheers, H
  13. Beautiful, solid and good-old mechanical engineering...I LOVE IT!!!! Keep up the good work Thierry! Cheers, H
  14. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Hi chaps. I strongly agree about the frontal cross-beam, but tbh, I can't see any evidence to suggest one at the rear. The curved plate that we see...I believe it is either a part of the floor-pan to protect Bordino's feet from stones or spray, or maybe some sort of protective plate for the brake-shaft. Just my humble opinion, of course. Cheers, H
  15. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    Dear Nick, as far as I can see mate, I think .you have it pretty much have it sown-up. Your positions etc are spot on with with what I'm trying to achieve! Keep up the good work.............we need you!!!! Cheers, H
