  • New Ferrari 350

    My scratchbuilt Can Am Ferrari. Made a master and homecast the body. Brass and wire podded chassis in a sidewinder configuration to open up space for a detailed interior.

    Looks good! What are the grey blocks up front, resin cast axle holder?

      The grey blocks are a lego product. They come ready with a bore through the block that accepts a 3/16 x 3/32 flanged bearing. It is like they were made for it. I trimmed the front corner to give adequate clearance for the body to sit down.

        that's clever. how did you attach them to the chassis? glue or screw 'em down?


        • #5
          I predrill the brass plate and then CA them in position. Once set up I flip the chassis over and run screws into them. The whole assembly is very strong.. I’ll post some pictures of the lego pieces and how I attach them a little later.
