Scale  

1/8

Description  

This 1:8 scale model of a Ferrari 126C2 was constructed using what can best be described as a 'Superkit', supplied by the Italian company 'Promocom Toys Group'

The kit features a machined aluminium monocoque and genuine carbon fibre bodywork. Thousands of pieces of photo etched items including needles for instrumentation.

The model is constructed mainly using tiny nuts and bolts with most other joints being completed using solder. Very little adhesives are required and the only plastic used in the whole kit is the vac formed windscreen.. hose connections are produced using silicon rubber.

The model took well over 700 hours to complete

Hi Simon.

The build - I wouldn't describe as 'nice' but the completion of each step is very satisfying. It is a hard build, at times very challenging but if get all of your GCSE's I'm sure you'll be up to it :)

Good luck with them and the model

Mario
It has to be seen to be believed, the detail and finish of the components is awesome. For some years now the same company has been preparing a Ferrari 312PB in the same scale. I have a couple on order and when (if) they arrive I'll post pictures

Wow.. where did that Porsche go? its quicker than I thought....

Roger, I can't less that admire the kit and of course all your work, looks like it was easy but I guess this involved a lot of hard work. I love the 126C2 and I superdetailed the 1/12 Protar kit, I imagine that this has to be amazing.
