Good evening,

 

Thank you very much!
 
Here are 2 pics of the wheels painted and installed for test.

On the seat and headrest, a layer of Semi Gloss Black Humbrol was sprayed over the Tamiya mat black layer.
I also started working on these two with oils.

Hi,

 

I had forgotten to post a picture of the chassis of the car equipped with its body for test fit.
 
aaff2b10.jpg
 
I also prepared, welded, shaped and primed the tubular reinforcement that supports the nose and runs on each side of the lower part of the frame.
There’s still the gray to shoot on the parts.

The side tank straps are pretty stiff!
They are heated with a mini torch, then put in shape on the tank and using cylinders of different diameters.

The half wheel rims are also primed in anticipation of woody hues.

Good evening,


Thank you so much Dan!

I really appreciate. ;)

 

Here is the progress of the day:
 
I prepared, assembled and added a small weld on the exhausts.
 
44ca0810.jpg
 
Then a primer layer
 
6ae0d010.jpg
 
And a quick coat of matte black before pastels and oils.
 
875bc410.jpg
 
Same for the steering wheel: 
A light and very light first layer of acrylic.
 
133ca110.jpg
 
Quickly followed by a second of a slightly darker mixture of 3 shades.
 
105a4210.jpg
 
And the beginning of work with oils.

More soon with the exhausts, steering wheel, chassis and tanks…

Good evening,
 
The exhausts are painted, assembled and mounted on the chassis/motor on each bench.
I started to apply some pastels.

The steering wheel is assembled, varnished and decorated.

The nose support is installed after receiving its Grayish Blue layer. Same for the lower tubes of the chassis.
The front anti-roll bar is done and installed too.
 
057da710.jpg
 
Although they are not very visible afterwards, the new supports of the model are decorated.
The two White Metal parts are those provided in the kit.

The turned supports are drilled and tapped to be attached to their locations.

Good morning,
 
Grazie mille Dan!

 

I wasn’t happy with the steering wheel.
So I inserted a 0.3 steel wire into a groove: It suits me better.
 
 dedcff10.jpg

 

571fe810.jpg
 
Same with the tank straps.
Their rigidity did not facilitate shaping on the tanks or the final assembly.
 
2cdb8310.jpg
 
I remade them in 1/10 aero Alu foil.
A copper rod is glued and then coated with photo sensitive resin.

 

68d56410.jpg

 

23ad3f10.jpg
 
The “Superpotente” coil will be invisible or almost invisible.
I decided not to go into too much detail.
 
ac0ad910.jpg
 
The small lateral tank (brake fluid…) is also installed.

Good evening,
 
The straps are shaped on the tanks, equipped with fixing plates, primed and painted.

Same thing for fresh air ducts painted gray. The aluminum will be sprayed over the masked part.

Painting session for small elements.

The air ducts are painted and installed on the car.
The rear view mirrors are just waiting for… their mirror.

We are not immune to a clear coat attack...
 
2b667510.jpg

 

Well, well, of course, I took in the face the thing I was not immune to!…
 
88a92610.jpg

 

73f74e10.jpg
 
I was not happy with the top of a shock.
I redid it using a 1/10th shaped aluminum strip, all that remains is to paint.
 
daa56a10.jpg

 

7f48f010.jpg
 
I didn't really know what to do while waiting for the varnish to dry...
I decided to make a small bungee cord and a container to collect the overflow of coolant.

Hello,

 

Thanks so much for your comments!

@SprueMan: the yellow coat is here to “unify” the base for the final coat as there might be different shades due to various materials: White Metal (grey) resin (white)… even if the primer from Gravity is really great!
 
The clear coat is now dry.
In order to be consistent with the Grand Prix period, I:
- added mat base,
- slightly "over-diluted",
- sprayed in 2 very fine passes (one veil, one wet),
- "scratched" very slightly with 12000.
A veeery light film of Carnauba is wiped with a soft cloth.

It vibrates less!
The wheels are therefore balanced, with a lead wire as at the time, equipped with their inflation valve.

Thank you! That makes perfect sense. The paintwork is lovely!

I like that you are over-polishing the model, the paint technology of the time was not as good as it today, and the machines were made to be used, not to look good in a showroom. :)

Good evening,
 
Thank you! ;) 


I decided to modify the headrest/backrest fixing system.
I first fixed the steel plate with adhesive film behind the   « leather » part without integrating the rivets.

 

302a8a10.jpg
 
I then installed flush magnets in the pre-drilled rear tip.
 
9459b510.jpg

 

b0d2cc10.jpg
 
This makes it very easy to remove the part to see what is happening under the hull.
 
Side tanks are riveted, fitted with filler caps and modified to install vents.
They are then mounted and strapped to the chassis, connected to the fuel circuit.

The vents are attached to the frame tubes and connected to the rear center tank filler neck.

The exhausts are definitively fixed and the bodywork parts fitted for a small test.

The mobile oil and fuel hatches are in place.

Good evening,

 

Thank you! ;)
 
A bit of gasoline and oil.
 
df022110.jpg
 
It's time to apply the decals.
The numbers are in one piece and therefore there is backing film… which I hate.
It must therefore be removed, which makes the numbers very flexible and requires installation templates.

A busy day: Rivets of the rear, installation of stacks/tubes, adjustment of the bodywork, shaping/installation of the gear lever, seat, steering wheel… fitting of the logo on the nose… In short, it smells like the stable !

The model is very dirty, I will clean it tomorrow, to… get it a little dirty again.
Maybe I would have time to make a small accessory, but the priority is to create its storage/transport box.
 
Next soon.

Pascal,

Inspirational build with many intricate and AMAZING  details. 

:heart:  :wub:

As I said earlier  it looks exactly  like the one in Ferrari museum but I bet if they saw your model they would be amazed.

PHENOMENAL  .

The  whole build  including the engine(MY Favorite in any mechanical  structure) is IMPECCABLE. 

:worthy:

Good evening,
 
Thank you all for your feedback and patience with this WIP.

Thank you so much for all your kind comments.
 
As I didn't know what to do (…) and I didn't find the hood fitted well enough, I took it back, with care(!), but that's it, it's good.
The last rivets are placed, the traces of exhaust made… I hesitate to dirty it a little.
Here are some pictures, I will definitely do more.

I don't really have a dedicated presentation base at the moment.
The Dino will be presented on…a A330 porthole.
An accessory to possibly accompany it is under study, barely started.
 
The next one will be… Red!
Again on the 12th.
Most certainly another Dino who also only left the places of honor to the other competitors.
But I'm not immune to getting into a 12-cylinder, or even a sport prototype...

Good evening Gentlemen,


 
The frame of the Dino is provided with pieces of tubes intended to accommodate a quick riser.
So...I made one.
I started from a vintage photo.
 
The brass wheels are turned, the tubes, of the same material, are folded and welded.
I made small copper washers as side stops for the wheels.
It only remains to paint it in the same gray as the chassis.
 
Here are some pictures.
