FERRARI 312 P Brands Hatch 6 Hours 1969 - Fisher 1/24 scale


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
Attached, photos of my Ferrari 312 P model, Brands Hatch 6 Hours version from 1969.
In my opinion, the 312 P is the most beautiful and elegant Sport Prototype car of all time.
I have also included a card that summarizes the most important changes and additions made during the assembly.
Greetings,
Giovanni La Rosa

FERRARI 312 P

Brands Hatch 6 Hours 1969

Base kit : FISHER (U.S.A.)

 

BODY PAINTING : Tamiya TS 8 Italian Red (can decanted and sprayed  with airbrush)

FRAME : Alclad II Chrome

INTERIOR COCKPIT : Tamiya TS 30 Silver Leaf

RIMS : Testor’s Gold

TIRES : Humbrol 85 Coal Black + Microscale Satin

RIVET used : Adlers Nest and Scale Hardware

 

FRONT HEADLIGHTS

Completely rebuilt with Sakatsu chrome parables and Modeler’s lenses. The screws on the plexiglass shell are taken from a set of  F1 Specialties photoetched.

REAR LIGHTS

Supplied in the kit in printed resin, they have been replaced with red and orange lights of Tron Accessories.

EXHAUST

Also these, supplied in the resin kit, have been replaced with brass tubes and painted in Tamiya Matt White.

ROLL BAR

Rebuilt with brass rod , replaces the resin in the kit.

SEAT BELTS

Made with fabric of the american company Model car Garage and completed with photoetched set of the Fisher same, sold separately, wich also includes the wings (placed on the front nose) and the spoiler (placed on the rear hood), necessary for the realization of the 6 Hours version of Brands Hatch # 60 from 1969.The Fisher set include also the rear hood closing handles and other details.

RIMS

Painted with Testor’s Gold , they were completed with the balancing weights , made with nichel plated rod and strips of Bare Metal Foil and the inflation valves of the Sakatsu

TIRES

Also supplied in resin, they were painted with Humbrol Coal Black 85 and completed  with golden wheels and Firestone writings by Fred Cady decals; all sealed with a hand of trasparent Microscale Satin.

BODY

Painted with the Tamiya TS 8 Italian Red decanted and sprayed with airbrush , it was finished with the Tamiya TS 13 Clear , also decanted and sprayed, followed by polishing with Micro Mesh abrasive papers. Many missing decals have been added on the sheet supplied by the kit and placed above the Clear.

AIRSCOPE

It was excavated to give depth to the air entry hole.

FUEL FILLER CAPS AND VIEW MIRROR

Painted with Alclad II Chrome and the mirror was made with DC Fix “Mirror” film.

NOTE

The Fisher kits are very essential, but they have a correctness of exceptional lines that, together with the integration of the missing details, perfectly makes the idea of the real car.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for your comment !
Yeah, I heard what happened to Paul Fisher and I'm very sorry.
I still have, to build, several kits of him and also many of those of UMi (M. Quatermann) which, since it is said, many bear the signature of Paul.
Thank you again,
Ciao,
Giovanni La Rosa

Giovanni, è bellissima, è assolutamente stupenda.

I don't have these kinds of skills so when I see such a beautifully detailed and finished replica like your's I can only admire and maybe learn a little from you. Thank you for the detailed explanations.

This is art at the highest level.

Magnifique, félicitations!
