Zakspeed Turbo Capri 1/12 Scratch

Postby capri-schorsch » Thu Sep 01, 2011 4:00 pm

Hi,

beside my current project,the lotus 72 in 1/8, i got a new one.
I try to build an Zakspeed turbo capri in 1/12 scale.
This got a reason.When i was a little boy of 11 years,we went to hockenheim to the jim-clark memory race at 1982.
There i saw the capri and i was able to sit in one.
That was an awesome memory in my mind.

A few days ago,i found the old pictures and i know what i have to do.

I got an friend who will help me with this project.Its the master of capri modelling,in my eyes,el modello (Kurtl) from austria.
Here is his amazing capri build.

So i got this idea in my mind,but i dont know how i can make it?

First step was to digitize the tamiya 1/24 scale capri.
So i was able to make cuts through the body where i needed it.
This cuts where resized and printed.

Image

Than i glued it to an 4mm thick material named "Ureol".
Next step was to cut it out,and use an beltsander to make the shape of the body.

Cuts in direction x
Image

and here in direction y

Image

And this is the next step,put it all together.

Image

Image

So it looks like today.Next will be some little changes to the cuts and after that,i will glue them together with 2k putty.

Kind Regards
Christian

Christian, massive project you got involved in... If you can pull this one off, hats of to you sir!!
I think it would have been a lot easier should you have chosen an open model, and not one with windows all around :D :D

Will follow this one, as there will be a lot to learn for me ...
