  • Ferrari 156 Shark Nose

    This car is a collaboration with my son. I gave him drawings of the car and he created a body for me to print in a surprising 20 minutes.

    The initial chassis was with a FC-130 motor which was too tight with the driver tray's so a second chassis was created for the 18K Predator FF-050 motor.
    The pinion and crown gearing is 9/27 and we used on hand RS Slots 13x 5 wheels with RS Slots corvette inserts and PG urethane tires.

    The car's length , width, and height are 1/32 scale with intake detail not present on the prototype model.
    The body and chassis were printed and assembled to see how the parts would fit together along with how the car would drive.

    Initial running of the car is very promising.

    Good work for spending just 20 min. Bet he can do a nice body with some time invested.
    Nice collaborative effort!

    Nice looking effort. I found this body file online as I don’t have a family member who could whip up a file in 20 minutes. Kudos to both of you for a fine model
