  • Ferrari 158 proxy build



    This is a thread I posted on the old Forum a couple of years ago,.....nothing new !!

    This was my entry for the 2015 VRAA...for the 1.5 litre class.

    The body is an original Monogram Ferrari 158, and it has been liveried to replicate the #11 car of Lorenzo Bandini.....or close to replicating
    A few bits were removed/modified, and a few bits were made/added.

    The chassis is a heavily modified Beardog, (wheelbase, center hinge, guide lead/tongue, vertical front axle placement, etc. etc) with 13" wheels from RSSlotracing, and inserts from Dart. It is powered by the mandated motor...the BWA/Dart 050.

    Initial testing has been encouraging!! .....................UPDATE,......the car went on to win this proxy.

    Cheers
    Chris Walker

    Wow! Great build as usual, performance and modeling-wise.
