    '63 Ferrari GTO
    Using a Revell kit I built this as the UDT Laystall RHD car (Chassis 3505 GT).  I used a set of photo etched wire wheels from the parts box.  I did purchase a RHD conversion from HRM at the asme time as I bought a Maserati 450S (yet to build) but it wasn't until I received the package that I realised the RHD conversion was for the Gunze Sanyo GTO and was not useable.  So it was back to the drawing board and out with the X-Acto saw.  Pretty happy with the outcome, decals by Patto.

    I was lucky to pick this up new around 35 years ago and did a basic build, no roundels or numbers, merit wheels, etc.  As I collected a quantity of Herb Deeks photo etched wire wheels I decided to rebuild it as a look alike (wrong bodywork) of Stan Jones's (world Champion Alan Jones's dad) car which I saw race at Longford.  Apart for the racing numbers, photo etched wire wheels and some basic interior pieces it is pretty much out of the box.

    Merit Resto 2 (Aston Martin DB3S)
    This is the Aston I picked up at the same time as the Jag.  Once again I fitted headlight buckets, vacformed headlight covers, basic interior with passenger seat (also in the D type which I forgot to mention), resin wire wheels & resin tyres.  Both the D type & the Aston have vacformed screens I made as he originals were broken.

    Hi all,
     
    I picked this up along with aAston DB3S, Alfa 158 and 2 toy Lotus 15's (see previous post) about  2 years ago.  I have just got around to rebuilding it with headlight buckets & vacformed headlight covers.  I used a set of resin D type wheels from the Linberg D

    Ferrari 350 CanAm (conversion from P4 Coupe)
    I've finally finished my conversion of an old, pre-built, Heller P4 coupe into the 350 CanAm as run by David McKay's Scuderia Veloce down here in Aus. It's a fair representation of the car as I saw it raced at Longford back in March '68, not perfect as I haven't included the spare wheel vertically attached to the tail!! and a few other minor errors, but aesthetically I like it.

    The real car started life as a P4 spyder, chassis #058 67 but was converted for the CAn Am series into the 350. It was procured by Scuderia veloce and raced with some success down here before racing in South Africa by Paul Hawkins, as Team Gunston. It has just this year been converted back to a P4 spyder, no prizes for guessing what the unbuilt Union P4 is going to be converted into!!!













    Couple of more pics to follow, thanks for looking

    Have done a little more work on this one. It's not dead accurate but is a reasonable likeness of the 350 as raced by Scuderia Veloce in Australia, complete with headlights but minus the spare wheel which was attached vertically to the rear above the exhaust pipes. I have yet to complete under the 'bonnet' and the interior. It's painted white to allow me to see the faults.









    Tks for looking.

    This is looking really interesting, have built the Gunze coupe but shirked at the thought of attempting the transporter!!
