Ferrari 312F1, Chris Amon, Monaco 1967. MFH,1/12.

Hi ,
It’s been a long time since my last post...
A new Formula 1, from 1967 (Great year!)
Here are few pics of the engine.[br

I was not that happy with the kit throttle linkage... So I decided to build new ones with machined parts from RBMotion.




It was also necessary to show a bit of interest regarding the exhaust and prepare the white metal parts of the Spaghetti:

To prime and paint them:




Other parts are just treated to be left with a natural metal finish:



I prefer to solder them instead of gluing for evident reasons:

I played a bit with the iron in order to replicate weld seams :



The engine connected to the gear box and vice versa, and install for test fit in its compartment:



Next to the small 1/20 sister :


Rear brake discs before assembly on the gear box:

... and few accessories:

Modification of the rear hubs in order to adapt machined parts:

Time for primer:






The body is drilled in order to be riveted with MFH aluminium rivet:

The engine is... big. Almost the size of the 1/20 kit:

Rosso Corsa GC and Semi Gloss Black ZP on the rear shocks and the steering wheel.

Dull Aluminium (Alclad) on the rear hubs


Test fit of the front end:

Heat shield adjusted and drilled for the roll cage:

Titanium White GC:


Not very happy with the Dull Alu, so black Alclad is sprayed:

Tubes installed in the radiator and started to work on the rear suspension components:


Front brakes scoops are painted white:

test fitting of the bathtub:


Weld seams on the 3in1 exhaust parts:

I really apologize for the poor quality of the pictures...
Alclad White Alu and Klear Kote.


Paint family picture:

Wheels prep & paint session:

Primer:

Alclad Black:

Pale Gold Alclad:

Masking off:

Time for oils:


Test fit of anti roll bar, gearbox and half side transmission.




I’ve modified the throttle linkage.
The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts.

The mesh over the stacks is now done, and I must admit it was pretty fun to form and install: I’m mot unhappy with the result.
Oils have also been applied on the heat shield as well as a portion of aluminium tape on both external sides.
I really like the view of the trumpets through the mesh.






The rear stab bar has been remade with 1mm ø brass, which was later chemically burnished.



Now working on the connection rods.
One started compared to raw white metal original part.


Voilà.

More soon.
Pascal

Pascal, wonderful work. The engine looks real.
Terrific scratch additions as well - I bet drilling for those individual rivets was a pain!
How are you going to polish the paint after with all these rivets?

Re: Ferrari 312F1, Chris Amon, Monaco 1967. MFH,1/12.

Good evening,

Thank you very much Mates!

I must admit that there were few holes to drill...
But adding rivets is a great enhancement and I’m used to do it on all my models, mainly on 1/20th.
Regarding the clear coat, this is not really a problem as I never polish my models

I worked a bit on the small metal tanks and others parts that need to be cleaned and polished.[br]Fuel filter/distributor and water expansion tank.
I also made a quick test of the pedals on the front bulkhead.



Test fit of the rear structure and tank of the Red Roaring Beauty.
Battery and coils prepaired, masked and primed.
Starting to connecting brakes and fuel pipes.
Engine pan scratched.
Alfa Rosso ZP on the coils:
... And white (Titanium White GC) for the battery


Machined bolting and washers have been installed on the wheels.
An old « T » connector is modified and used to complete the front wheels brakes master cylinder.



Tanks and tubes installed on the roll bar with serflex & Ty-Raps:

Wires ready and waiting for the battery:[br][br]



Started to work on the coils:

Hi,[br][br]Thanks a lot Mate![br][br]Sanding, welding, riveting...[br][br][br][br][br][br][br][br][br][br]Few

And, at least, progress in the “office” area:
Paint session, dashboard session and gear lever/selector.
I was not that happy with the instruments, so I turned new ones and made brackets from aluminium foil.
Then test fitting.




Oils and screws added on the steering wheel and, of course, the Cavallino Rampante!

Voilà.
More soon.

Pascal

Phenomenal work as usual!

One thing that always makes your work a real stand out for me is the quality of the black wash; it's just so perfect. Mine will never lay perfectly in the crevices like yours. Can you tell me what paint and thinner you use to create it and perhaps say a little about your technique?

Thanks, and looking forward to more,

ianc

How do you do the weld lines on the tanks?
Etched aftermarket ones or custom made?

Hi,
Thanks a lot Ianc
I use fine and extra fine artists oils, mainly from W&N, Rembrandt, Sennelier.
Zippo or BP lighter fluid is my favorite thinner, but any brand should (must!) work.
Dilution depends on the density/thickness,fluidity I need or the effect I want (I’d liked...) to reach.
The more diluted and fluid the mix is, the more smooth and easy the flow is and/but the less dense the color is... Hi fluidity = transparency.
You can also play with the type of “wash”: Heavy one like a “lavis/filter” or more to extremely precise one.
The first one can modify the color, even if it’s a slight modification, and let a deposit in engraved parts and at the back of parts in relief.
The other method is to use veeeery thin paintbrush and extremely fluid oil mix and apply it at a precise area with the tip of your paintbrush.
It will flow very easily on smooth, gloss or clear coated surfaces.
I hope it will be of some help and that my explanation are sufficient...
As I often say, sorry for my poor English as it’s not my native language.

Hi Jaykay!
So glad to read from you!
Weld seams on the big front tank are “home made” with iron and low temp solder.
Those you can see on the small expansion tank are from Top Studio, 1/20-1/24 Scale. The exhaust 3in1 weld seams are Top Studio 1/12.

Thanks Pascal, that's very interesting! I've never heard of using lighter fluid before. I do use artist's oils, and have tried thinning them with turpentine (too smelly and toxic) and mineral spirits. The wash seems to flow well when I put it on, but tends to clump up in little blobs as it dries, which ruins the effect.

I'll have to give light fluid a whirl; thanks for the tip!

Re: Ferrari 312F1, Chris Amon, Monaco 1967. MFH,1/12.

Good evening,

Few progress on the Red Roaring Beauty!
Riveting the bathtub and the bulkhead is now done.
The wooden shifter knob is clear coated and test fitting is mandatory for the engine/cockpit/body subassembly.

























Nothing more for today.
More soon

Pascal
