double build: Ford C100 & Ford Zakspeed C1/4 in 1/12 scale

Hi,
after i finished my latest model i quickly started a new one.
This time its the old group C Ford C100 and his later brother the Zakspeed C1/4.
The Ford factory car was the first that raced in the new group c tournament.
But against the Porsche 956 he got absolut no chance.
The whole car was too soft and the cosworth engine was a real vibrator to the car and destroyed parts and the drivers.



The later Zakspeed version with their own turbo engine was a bit better,but still got no chance against the Porsche`s.
But the car won the Interserie tournament with my favorite driver Klaus Niedzwiedz.



Decals are already here.Made by Michael from scalegrafixx.de.



Starting point are the very old rc-body from Tamiya.I got two of them to build both versions.



I will try to use the tires and the resin chassis from my Porsche 956.Dont know if this works?



The factory car should be the easy one.The GWB Zakspeed car needs lots of body changes.
How ever,its one of my favorite cars from Zakspeed as i saw it in real racing against the Porsche.
Any picture from these car would be very helpful for me.I think i got all the published books out there.But maybe somebody got some secret pics on his hdd drive at home and wants to share with me?

regards Christian

Some changes to the body of the Zakspeed C1/8 are made now.



The air intakes are closed and the rear of the car is changed.



Detail shot from the rear end.



The intakes at the sides are also closed and the front wheel house has changed.

Re: double build: Ford C100 & Ford Zakspeed C1/4 in 1/12 scale

The Zakspeed is done.Most of the body.









I looked at my original pictures for a while and at the end i am nit 100% sure that this version was running these days?
There are so much different version and evolution at the race car i want to build and not enough reference pictures.
So i decided to build it in my own way.
Now i try to find a matching zero paint color for the green,orange and blue on the car.

regards Christian

Re: double build: Ford C100 & Ford Zakspeed C1/4 in 1/12 scale

Next step are the come together of body and chassis.



The front wheels did not fit into the small wheel arches.So i had to scratch a bit.I sanded the wheel on the top and on the bottom a bit.
Was better but still a right height of a SUV.
So i used a styrene sheet under both side and now it looks way better.You can see the brown putty i used for it.





First time for me to open the door.Works well,but again a problem was detected.
When the door is open it can lay onto the fender just like the real car ca.
Seams like Tamiya did some strange angles at the body.
So i simply cut another edge from the door and now it can be glued to the fender when its done.
Its not correct,but it works.That is what counts.





On the inside i used some pins and sockets to hold altogether in the right spot.works fine,only need some fine sanding.
Christian

The C1/8 grows.



The chassis is nearly done.Only some small adjustments.



The inside was build with plastic sheet.The 956 Chassis fits good,only a few changes are made.





Rear of the car with diffusor and frame.



Shot from "down under".Its not like the real one,but its ok.



Chassis and body could be click together easily.

Thanks for watching!

Re: double build: Ford C100 & Ford Zakspeed C1/4 in 1/12 scale

New year and some more progress on the Zakspeed group C ar.



The body main color is done now.I used Tamiya white fine primer as the base color.Works fine.
The stripes color was bought from Zero Paint.Now i only have to mask all the stripes. :oops: :oops:
Looks like a lot of work to me.



The cut out door get a sub frame with lots of holes in it.



The rear wing was a 1+1/4 Porsche 956 wing.The side plates are made from plastic sheet.



Thats all,have to mask that stripes now.
regards Christian

Stripes part one are made.



I used the Tamiya masking tape 5mm white which works perfect for all the curves.

Now it can dry over night before i tackle the orange stripes.

It looks better and better with every color more.



Orange works also fine.
Next will be the green stripes and than a shot of clear coat.

Only got one tiny mistake which i can repair very easy.

Thanks!
The stripes are done.





Only two or three spots needs some attention.
Than i will spray the first layer of clear coat before i apply the decals.
