Ferrari Can Am Take 2.

Postby BARC 1 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 6:58 pm

I reworked the master and then popped some new resin shells. I then scratch built a new 1/32 Ferrari Can Am 350 that raced in '67. Printed out some new decals to match the prototype better as well. This one looks more the part then my previous attempt. Found some old Cox Ferrari mag wheels in one of my storage tubs. I discovered I have a lot of old new on card Cox mags to utilize on some builds.

Dan, beautiful work.

Every runs 3/32 wheels, but those old Cox wheels are beautiful as long as you run an 1/8" axle. That's a gorgeous cars, one of my favorites!

Thanks

The front axle is a 1/8 threaded axle. The rear wheels are sleeved for 3/32 axles. I found a whole bunch of Cox rims I forgot I had. Most of them are Lotus with the free wheeling front wheels , but I did find a couple of Ferrari sets, and a couple of BRM sets.

The shells turned out OK, but I put a lot of little extras into this build with the openings and grills to dress them out.

I also finished up a Lotus 30 master, So I suspect my next project after the BT 20 will be a Lotus. Thinking Jim Clark , Riverside, third place.

Both the Ferrari and the track scenery look great!

Looks absolutely fabulous!
Saw that car race when Amon brought it down to Australia to run in the support races for the 1967/68 Tasman Series.
Awesome sound, awesome speed and you did an awesome model.
