    Trumpeter 1/12 Ford GT40
    With all the hype before it's release, things have gone dead on Trumpeter's 1/12 GT40. Has anyone purchased or built one yet?

    I will be getting back to it very soon. I have two 300SL's to complete first.

    I will be casting some GT40 pieces. Once I get the rear deck to fit properly I will be casting it.

    Thanks for the pictures Brendan..nice builds. I will be starting mine when I get home, sometime in mid April. My next Fisher will be the Lola T70

    Thanks to a post somewhere else in this forum I found out about Fisher. I have just ordered and received the Chaparral 2E and 2F....OUTSTANDING. Can't wait to get started on them.

    Still batting 1000 but I think I am going to loose it on this one. Intitially I thought it was real. That was based on the headlight covers...too good for a model, plus the detail inside the headlights. Then, I changed my my mind based on the external door hinge. I dont remember that on the REAL car, so it is a model.
    The original car had a chrome roll bar, but the restored 1:1 is black. The restored 1:1 sits on Goodyears, not Firestones. DEFINITELY A VERY GOOD MODEL.

    Really nice looking Cobra. Where did the instrument cluster come from?

    Still batting 1000. Gotta go with real. This could ruin my run of good luck, can't last forever. At least if I am wrong, I will be in good company.

    I haven't decided yet. Originally it was bought to do the Canadian Comstock Racing Team GT40 that ran at Sebring in '66'. There are so many cool gt40's to choose from, it seems a shame to just paint it white. I have seen a dark blue one (#9) with orange/red trim that appeals. It will be awhile before I have to make that decision, besides, it will keep everyone in suspense:-)

    Changes to chassis. Stock kit chassis is on the left, new modified chassis on the right.

    The parts that have been removed will form a new engine bay for the 289 dry sumped engine and gearbox, New rear crossmember will have to be fabricated along with engine mounts and rear suspension

    Thanks Bill, appreciate the support. I have never tackled anything this major, even I am surprised at how well it is going. Still, I have ample time for a major screw-up in which case it will get relegated to the back burner for a long long time.

    Nicely done!!!!! Ugly, but well done. Now, when are you going to do a chrome bumper version?????

    Numerous changed required to the rear bulkhead. The first one...remove the brackets for the rear hood pins and move them towards the top of the bulkhead by 2 1/2" scale inches.



    Left side done.

    I really really like GT40's

    This one (a real one, not a replica) belongs to a friend in Atlanta and on the odd occassion I get to drive it. This is only one of three built by Ford. I think it is appraised in the 7 figure category. I also got to drive a Superformance continuation GT40 with a Roush big block with 565hp at Road Atlanta. It took a week to get the stupid grin off my face.
