  1. Ferrari 612 Custom

    At the pre-Christmas car modellers brunch we had a model car kit gift exchange draw with the idea that these models would be built for the first get together of the year in January. I ended up with a Revell Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. Since the kit gift exchange was more or less my idea, I figured I had to have mine built for the January meeting. I had previously built another custom version of this car so was quite familiar with the kit. Because time was of the essence I decided to build a curbside model with the hood glued closed however I was not interested in building it stock. I was inspired by a 1/1-tuner version built a number of years ago by Imola Racing of which I found images on-line. SOME BACKGROUND INFO - I have only seen one 1/1 612 and that was at the Monterey Historics shortly after it had been released. I was impressed by its large size but disappointed by some aspects of its styling. With my first 612 model I attempted to improve some of those styling deficiencies. These days the 612 maybe the most affordable of the recent V-12 Ferraris with the average asking price between $100 and & 120,000 US$ and has the bonus of being a four seater. For example black low mileage 612 sold for $115 at the recent Barrett-Jackson auction. MODIFICATIONS Added rear spoiler and diffuser elements Cut in vents behind the front and ahead of the rear wheelwells Enlarged vents beside the grill and filled those and the central grill with mesh Molded front side splitters to valence Lowered suspension Wheels are Aoshima Enkei NT03+M 19inch with pose able fronts Did not install side windows to give a full hardtop look Aluminum tube exhaust tips Interior Tamiya Bright Red dull coated Exterior is two-tone to emphasis the unique styling cues on the 612 using Testor’s Model Master Custom lacquer System – AMC Sterling Silver Metallic 3D, Plymouth Bright Platinum Metallic PS and Ultra Gloss Clearcoat

    Fantastic collection of unusual subjects.
  5. my 32 ford

    I sure like the B400. Who makes the body? The Orange Crate body works really well over the Rat Roaster rolling chassis.

    Beautifully built Imperial and I love the photos.

    Great design with the convertible. I bet a 1/1 would have been a big seller.

  15. Dan Gurney Tribute Scale Race Cars

    The pink thing is actually a red thing [poor photo colour reproduction]. It is the Delta Wing in its preproduction configuration which was done at Dan Gurney's All American Racers factory. The production race car which ran at Le Mans and later in the American Le Mans Series in various configurations was built at the Panoz factory.
