Ferrari 256F1, Phil Hill, Monza 1960. MFH, 1/12


Recommended Posts

Hello,
 
Thank you very much Mates!


The clear coat is now dry.
In order to be consistent with the Grand Prix period, I:
- added mat base,
- slightly "over-diluted",
- sprayed in 2 very fine passes (one veil, one wet),
- "scratched" very slightly with 12000.
A veeery light film of Carnauba is wiped with a soft cloth.

It vibrates less!
The wheels are therefore balanced, with a lead wire as at the time, equipped with their inflation valve.

Good evening,
 
I decided to modify the headrest/backrest fixing system.
I first fixed the steel plate with adhesive film behind the   « leather » part without integrating the rivets.

I then installed flush magnets in the pre-drilled rear tip.

This makes it very easy to remove the part to see what is happening under the hull.
 
Side tanks are riveted, fitted with filler caps and modified to install vents.
They are then mounted and strapped to the chassis, connected to the fuel circuit.

The vents are attached to the frame tubes and connected to the rear center tank filler neck.

The exhausts are definitively fixed and the bodywork parts fitted for a small test.

The mobile oil and fuel hatches are in place.

Good evening,
 
Thank you Bainford! ;) 

A little gasoline and a little oil.

It's time to apply the decals.
The numbers are in one piece and therefore there is backing film… which I hate.
It must therefore be removed, which makes the figures very flexible and requires installation templates.

A busy day: Ivetage of the rear, installation of horns/tubes, adjustment of the bodywork, shaping/installation of the gear lever, seat, steering wheel… fitting of the logo on the nose… In short, it smells like the stable !

The model is very dirty, I will clean it tomorrow, to… get it a little dirty again.
Maybe I would have time to make a small accessory, but the priority is to create its storage/transport box.
 
Next soon.

Pascal -

very good update - 2 questions - the magnets in the tail - what is their diameter? They appear to be no more than .040  -  and do they “attach” magnetically to the white metal w/out placement of corresponding magnets behind the head rest ???

Good evening,
 
Thank you all for your feedback and patience with this WIP.

The magnets diameter is 1mm and the metal backplate of the backrest is made of steel, so it’s ok. ;) 
 
As I didn't know what to do (…) and I didn't find the hood fitted well enough, I took it back, with care(!), but that's it, it's good.
The last rivets are placed, the traces of exhaust made… I hesitate to dirty it a little.
Here are some pictures, I will definitely do more.

His future home and, incidentally, transport box is complete.

I don't really have a dedicated presentation base at the moment.
The Dino will be presented on…a A330 porthole.
An accessory to possibly accompany it is under study, barely started.
 
The next one will be… Red!
Again on the 12th.
Most certainly another Dino who also only left the places of honor to the other competitors.
But I'm not immune to getting into a 12-cylinder, or even a sport prototype...

Good evening,
 
Thank you very much! ;) 
 
The frame of the Dino is provided with pieces of tubes intended to accommodate a quick riser.
So...I made one.
I started from a vintage photo.
 
The brass wheels are turned, the tubes, of the same material, are folded and welded.
I made small copper washers as side stops for the wheels.
It only remains to paint it in the same gray as the chassis.
 
Here are some pictures.
