  • Ferrari 312P Coupe build 7

    This has been my favorite own resin cast body with six builds (coupe and spyder) to date having different chassis, motor layout and tire combinations.

    .032" piano wire - flexi hinges for side pans
    1/8" brass tube - front axle holder
    5/32" brass tube - guide post holder bored out to 9/64" to accept Sloting Plus Universal guide

    Power's a Slot It 25K S can motor with a 3.27:1 gear ratio with Slot It 11t, 6.5mm pinion and 36t, 19mm crown gears.

    Motor pod's clubmate 3DRon's resin printed S can sidewinder motor pod that accepts Parma/Champion 3/32" x 3/16" oilites.

    Rolling stock's Slot It 15 x 8 plastic rims/unknown tires at the front and All Slot F1 rims/PG 21125 urethane tires out back.

    Tri-post mounted the body as my usual method.

    Will finish it in yellow with black window surrounds and engine cover.

    Expecting it'll run at the top of my 312P pack.

    P.S. Would like to find the other vintage Aurora offerings in this series (Ferrari 612, McLaren M12, Mirage?) that I can make molds from. Anyone got some?

        Dogsbody - Sorry, just had enough resin left to cast this body. Not likely to start casting again until late fall.

        Sprayed on Tamiya fine white primer.

          Looks great, Dan! Fly Yellow was always a favorite Ferrari color for me.

            Think I'll leave the louvred engine cover in body color rather than black.

                Finally got the paint detail and decaling done. Not my favorite part of the build but makes a difference.

                Lost access to a vac form machine so tried a heat gun manual method on forming the window piece from my silicone mold

                Not really satisfactory with lots of air bubbles so will keep on trying for a better one.

                Runs just great hugging the corners with plenty of straight line speed so we're good on all fronts.

                On to the next build.

                  Dan, Art (Dart) makes a gorgeous clear resin windshield/lenses for this car......better than the Aurora original...makes the car!!

                  Thanks Chris. Just sent an email to Art on this. Timing might be right as I just placed a urethane washer order a week ago.

                Hi Dan, This is a pic. of Art's (Dart) 312, and the clear resin windshield. The original Aurora body is the red one. I did not include the headlight covers in the shot.

                The windshield (and headlight covers) are arguably better than the originals...........the specs on the windshield are bits of dust...it is gorgeous.

                Cheers
                Chris Walker

                  Beautiful work in clear resin. Hopefully he does multiples at a shot....that's quite a bunch of work for a single part.
