something a little different "lego" Ferrari 312

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

While awaiting Messrs DeAgostini to finish with deliveries of my porsche and absorbing all of Roy's Porsche building tips on their forum I thought i would give this a go..   It is made by  Xing Bao, a chinese company that makes Lego copies. This design is by an italian gent who goes by the handle of RoscoePC..... followers of Daisy, Bo and Luke will get it. 

 

When not obsessed by Dodge Bothering he is an exceptional designer of large scale Lego Formula 1 cars....  You name it he has a lego version of the most icon cars of the past twenty years.. for lego they are pretty details with the occasional liberty taken in the name of blockiness 

 

My nearest and dearest sorted out delivery of this Ferrari and the Dan Gurney - Eagle Weslake for my recent birthday. The cars are huge and both came for a very reasonable 110 pounds delivered to my door from china. 

 

So on with some build pics 

 

 The start. the rear suspension and engine sump with the seperentine exhausts

looks good, but i would be careful to make sure you don't post this on any Lego forums. it's not worth the hassle you will get from them.

So all nearly finished - second one I have built first was the Gurney Eagle Weslake v12 .. here they are side by side with an iPhone 6 for scale.. the Ferrari is going to get proper decals rather than the rubbish supplied
