  1. A couple of years ago (2008) I started this project, it's been on and off my workbench. The idea was / is to change a Pocher Ferrari F40 into the F40 Beurlys. The F40 Beurlys also known as the Barchetta Beurlys was build for belgian racing driver and Ferrari collector Jean Blaton : Before the roof was cut, the car received many modifications like a F1 style suspension : The complete history of this car is unknown. On various website you can find a kind of history, but some of it is false. Here are some facts : * The chassis is completely build from scratch. * Some of the work was done by the belgian Tony Gillet. * The gearbox is an Enforced Hewland (Crabots), 5 gears + 1 reverse. * Rims : BBS E-19 style 3-piece magnesium centerlock racing. I took me 2 years and hundreds of emails to find this unique car. When I finally found it in France, I took hundreds of pictures. Some of these will be shown during this WIP. Currently the car is in Holland where it got a complete overhaul : http://www.forzaservice.nl/werkplaats/werkplaats/f40-barchetta-beurlys/ During the work on this project (and because of the pictures that I've posted on various sites) I found more information on its history. I was also contacted by the designer and the current owner. The drawing made by the designer Vincent Barbereau : This body was used to make the Beurlys (were it came from is still unknown) : A WIP picture of the real car taken in the workshop of Tony Gillet : These clips show the car in all its glory after the overhaul : It's been a couple of years since I did any work on the 1/8 scale model. But if you guys are interested, I'll post all the updates of the work that I did. Sincerely Pascal
