Fisher 1/24 Ferrari 512S yellow longtail 1970

Recommended Posts

Another resin off the bench.  This is a Fisher 1/24 Ferrari 512S that was campained by the Belgian team Ecurie Francoshamps.   This kit was built in conjunction with my 512M posted a week  ago. Some of the work was similar so I did  both at the same time. Colour is Tamiya TS-16 (80%) and TS-34 Camel Yellow (20%).  Extra features include steering wheels, seatbelts, and long stalk mirrors. The mirrors and seatbelts were missing from my kit so I had to scratchbuild them.  Build went very smoothly.

Looks good, Rich.

I've had this kit 80% done for several years.  Your post may have inspired me to finally get mine done .

Nice Work!

Cool to see something unusual, plus a resin kit that might not be offered again, get built!  Nice job.

How does the mirror on top get used, is there a slot in the roof?  Did you make it steerable?

There is a hole in the roof that you can see from the 3/4 rear veiw.   Last photo.  Yes...the wheels steer,  Ya know I  just can't stand for that not to happen.  See the 1rst photo.

Very nice, Rich - I too have this in my stash - will be done as the 4th place NART car from Le Mans 1970 (Bucknum/Posey)

Nice build ! 3/4 views are particularly nice, the steerable wheels add a lot to an impressive car.
