1/18 Ferrari F40's, LM, GT and IMSA


Recommended Posts

Progress is very slow because - despite all models being Bburago's - there are quite a few tiny differences between each model. So every part that I make, has to be tailored to a specific model.

 

Used some plasticard to enlarge a part of the body :

With some plastic strips and putty, I made the top of the beams round, needs a bit more sanding :

 Here's my handmade frame, every frame is a bit wider, lower or higher depending on which model it will be fixed to:

Used CA and a steel nail to beef up the structure :

Dryfit. I'm glad I ordered the letters A (they are made with a CNC millingmachine) a bit too tall, now I can sink them into the beams to get a strong bond :

I really need to find some more time for modelling.

 

Update. Resin parts :

Drilled holes in the underside to attach the tubes :

Tubes :

Some plastic needs to be removed to make room for the tubes and covers :

This lousy pic shows the back of the gearbox. I scratchbuild the master for this part, the Ferrari logo is visible with the naked eye :

These triangular parts attach the gearbox to the frame :

Inside the gearbox I fitted a terminal block, fixed in place with resin. The screw in the block allows me to hold the driveshaft in place, it also allows the gearbox to be moved about 5mm vertically, to change the ride height (I took some photos while I fixed the terminal block in place, but can't find them)  :
