Caterham Super Seven BDR (Ford)

Thanks for welcoming me to the board. Since it was mentioned in my previous thread, I thought I would share this one with you all. I spent about 2000 hours making it. There are no aftermarket parts, if it didn't come in the kit, I made it, except for the rims which I swapped from the CF Cycle Fender version. It is 1/12 scale. I machined tons of parts (OK, maybe pounds) from aluminum. If you include the bolts and fasteners I made in that count, there are literally thousands of extra pieces. The carbs & linkage alone has over 70 scratchbuilt parts.
Any questions? - Mark

Wow, you bring a lot of attention to details. Impressive work. I can't wait to see your other models

PS: you better had posted this in the 'Completed' section of the forum but I'm sure a moderator will move it there

Wow, look at those carbs....I'm blown away at the engine and dash detail. The bolt heads, timing gears, hose fasteners, sweet lord.
How did you mark the radiator hoses? The igintion box is wired, look at the throttle-return springs!
Move over Hiroboy, there's a new 1/12 scale modeler

Re: Caterham Super Seven BDR (Ford)

This is an incredible build of the Tamiya kit. WHOA ! Awesome, I may have to break down and get the Catterham 1/12 kit and just stop paying my bills and let my credit goto hell. Ok maybe not that far !

Re: Caterham Super Seven BDR (Ford)

What about the ignition coil, master cylinder, ... Are the seats covered with real leather or what ?
It's hard to believe it's a model.
