Hi ,
It’s been a long time since my last post...
A new Formula 1, from 1967 (Great year!)
Here are few pics of the engine.ImageImageImageImageImageImage[brImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

I was not that happy with the kit throttle linkage... So I decided to build new ones with machined parts from RBMotion.
Image
Image
Image
Image
It was also necessary to show a bit of interest regarding the exhaust and prepare the white metal parts of the Spaghetti:
Image
To prime and paint them:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Other parts are just treated to be left with a natural metal finish:
Image
Image
Image
I prefer to solder them instead of gluing for evident reasons:
Image
I played a bit with the iron in order to replicate weld seams :
Image
Image
Image
The engine connected to the gear box and vice versa, and install for test fit in its compartment:
Image
Image
Image
Next to the small 1/20 sister :
Image
Image
Rear brake discs before assembly on the gear box:
Image
... and few accessories:
Image
Modification of the rear hubs in order to adapt machined parts:
Image
Time for primer:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
The body is drilled in order to be riveted with MFH aluminium rivet:
Image
The engine is... big. Almost the size of the 1/20 kit:
Image
Rosso Corsa GC and Semi Gloss Black ZP on the rear shocks and the steering wheel.
Image
Dull Aluminium (Alclad) on the rear hubs
Image
Image
Test fit of the front end:
Image
Heat shield adjusted and drilled for the roll cage:
Image
Titanium White GC:
Image
Image
Not very happy with the Dull Alu, so black Alclad is sprayed:
Image
Tubes installed in the radiator and started to work on the rear suspension components:
Image
Image
Front brakes scoops are painted white:
Image
test fitting of the bathtub:
Image
Image
Weld seams on the 3in1 exhaust parts:
Image
I really apologize for the poor quality of the pictures...
Alclad White Alu and Klear Kote.
Image
Image
Paint family picture:
Image
Wheels prep & paint session:
Image
Primer:
Image
Alclad Black:
Image
Pale Gold Alclad:
Image
Masking off:
Image
Time for oils:
Image
Image
Test fit of anti roll bar, gearbox and half side transmission.
Image
Image
Image
Image
I’ve modified the throttle linkage.
The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts.

Image
The mesh over the stacks is now done, and I must admit it was pretty fun to form and install: I’m mot unhappy with the result.
Oils have also been applied on the heat shield as well as a portion of aluminium tape on both external sides.
I really like the view of the trumpets through the mesh.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
The rear stab bar has been remade with 1mm ø brass, which was later chemically burnished.
Image
Image
Image
Now working on the connection rods.
One started compared to raw white metal original part.
Image

Voilà.

More soon.

Hi Pascal,

Very glad to see you getting on with this wonderful kit, I have already bookmarked this WIP so I am strapped in and ready for the journey. Please do not apologize for your pics either, they speak volumes !!

I would be interested to learn your process of altering the arm ends. White metal does not lend itself well to casting around the areas of the ball joints, and your modified ones look fabulous.

Please keep us updated with your progress !!

Cheers, Paul
Sydney, Oz.

Good evening,

Thank you very much Mates!
Glad you like the build ;)
Which ball ends Paul? Some are modified and others just cleaned and worked with oils.

I must admit that there were few holes to drill...
But adding rivets is a great enhancement and I’m used to do it on all my models, mainly on 1/20th.
Regarding the clear coat, this is not really a problem as I never polish my models

I worked a bit on the small metal tanks and others parts that need to be cleaned and polished.[br]Fuel filter/distributor and water expansion tank.
I also made a quick test of the pedals on the front bulkhead.ImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImage

Test fit of the rear structure and tank of the Red Roaring Beauty.
Battery and coils prepaired, masked and primed.
Starting to connecting brakes and fuel pipes.
Engine pan scratched.ImageImageImageImage
Alfa Rosso ZP on the coils:Image
... And white (Titanium White GC) for the battery
Image

Machined bolting and washers have been installed on the wheels.
An old « T » connector is modified and used to complete the front wheels brakes master cylinder.

ImageImageImageImageImage

Tanks and tubes installed on the roll bar with serflex & Ty-Raps:ImageImageImage

Wires ready and waiting for the battery:[br][br]

ImageImageImage

Started to work on the coils:ImageImageImage

Hi,[br][br]Thanks a lot Mate![br][br]Sanding, welding, riveting...[br]Image[br]Image[br]Image[br]Image[br]Image[br]Image[br]Image[br]Image[br][br]Few

And, at least, progress in the “office” area:
Paint session, dashboard session and gear lever/selector.
I was not that happy with the instruments, so I turned new ones and made brackets from aluminium foil.
Then test fitting.

ImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Oils and screws added on the steering wheel and, of course, the Cavallino Rampante!Image

Voilà.
More soon.

Pascal

Pascal, I've always loved your 1/2x WIPS and have been waiting to see the magic unleashed on a 1/12 kit.
And wow. Honestly, I don't know what to say. These parts look amazing, especially the intake sections with
the trumpets covered by the mesh and the rusyty bolts on the white tray next to it - and of course a million
other parts. Textbook work again, at a more reasonable scale though :)
Cheers,
Roman
