  • Ferrari 275 P

    More time then I know what to do with, so I rebuilt an older Ferrari 275 I had built earlier.

    Using the Brass and Lego chassis with the Mineabea N 30 motor in a sidewinder configuration allowed me the space to do an interior.

    This is a great little motor

      The car above is a monogram 132 scale model.

      I did build the exact same car for 143, and here is a picture of that

          I love the chassis and the full interior!

          Well done!

            I redid the interior and added a different driver. Added some tire decals as well, for this Ferrari Classic

              You did a great job with both cars! That reminded me of the Ferrari 275P that I did in 1964. I had an A.C. Gilbert 1/43rd track and that came with two '62 Corvettes. I reworked one of the Corvette bodies into a 275P using the plans that were published in Model Car&Track. I can't remember the details of the conversion, I had to grind away part of the body and fill in with scrap or melted plastic, then use body filler to smooth things out. The car looked good, but it was heavy compared to a stock Corvette. It is too bad that I never took pictures of the cars or the layout. The original track was just an over and under figure 8, but I had bought extra sections and also bought another set from a friend to make a total of 36 feet of track.

                Excellent workmanship again - kudos to you.

                  Love the lowered interior and the dash detail. Very nice.
