  • Ferrari 612 CanAm

    Another "brought over thread"........from Ye Olde Forum

    A little history........Many many years ago, I was lapping my Eldon's, Strommies, and Monogram cars on my basement plastic track when my next door neighbour arrived with his newly acquired (dad bought) Aurora 1/32 Ferrari 612.......well, my heart nearly stopped.....It was my all time favourite looking car, I used to drool over the pics. of this thing in the car racing magazines, and it was driven by one of my childhood heroes...Chris Amon.

    Despite the car being a mule, thanks to its Ajet (basically a stretched T Jet) chassis, I vowed that one day I would have one!

    A few years back, I decided to find one, add a few details, and build a half decent chassis for the little beauty....

    The first pics., are of the original....a moulded in driver, and a fairly pathetic looking back end....things I thought I could improve on.

    The following pics. are of the redone car....a semi full driver, instrument panel, vents opened, paint and proper decals, and, a decent scratchbuilt rear end .

    The chassis.........fairly straightforward...single rail (.055) sidewinder, with hinged sidepans.

    I went with a Scaley 20K 050,...largely because it was "Red" is plenty quick enough, and any lack of OOMMPH , is more than made up for by its handling !!

        Beautiful job. You are a master at both the chassis and body work.
