Pascal Posted July 12, 2016 Share Posted July 12, 2016 Not a lot of diecast projects on this forum. How about I show you guys this little groupbuild (11 Bburago's and 1 Hotwheels Elite) that I'm working on ? Here we go : The 1/18 Bburago model : Two of the 12 will be build as these :I started with an all-out attack with my Dremel on the chassis :First try :Second try :Third try (and it didn't end there) :I'm cutting the rear chassis to get rid off those ugly metal tubes that hold the screws. The suspension and rear frame will be scratchbuild to resemble that of a real F40.The engine/gearbox look awful, to the left is that of the Hotwheels LM, not much better : The goal is to make it look like this : I bought a Kyosho F40 and took it apart. Some parts will be copied for my F40 LM's. The cockpit needs some changes : I cut the floor out and filled some holes with plasticard : I sanded the firewall and made a center console (tunnel) : The front chassis looks like this : The Hot Wheels version is almost the same, but is has a radiator : First step is to remove the overscale metal : The plastic parts get the same treatment : So everything can be rebuild : At least that is what I had planned at that stage. Later on you will see that the chassis will be modified a lot more. Sincerely Pascal 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
