Caterham Superb 7

Kit / Model  

Caterham Cycle fender

Manufacturer  

Tamiya

Item Code  

10202

Scale  

1/12

Description  

This is my latest Super Seven model, my seventh one actually. I just recently finished it after 2 years and 7 months of work on it.
I machined and scratchbuilt literally thousands of parts for this car. I made all the patterns and molds and cast the added resin parts. I formed some parts from brass, (like the windshield frame). I drew the art and made all the decals except the C/F. I cannot count how many bolts and fasteners I machined for it, hundreds easily. Lots of aluminum, brass, resin, delrin, clear acrylic and lexan, and some stainless steel. Paint is GM28 Admiral Blue ('96 Corvette Grand Sport).
Some (but certainly not all) of the scratchbuilt items include:
Wheels
Gauges
Fire Extinguisher
NOX Bottle and System
Fuel Pumps, Filters and Injection System
Fuel Filler and Sender
Windshield (w/wipers and washers)
License Plate
Air Cleaner
Steering Wheel (Quick Release)
Driveshaft w/Working U-Joints
Seats/Harness's
Shifter & Boot
Brake and Clutch Master Cylinders, Slave Cylinder
Tail Lights
Timing Drive Assembly including Belt
Alternator
Brake Rotors
MSD Ignition
Muffler w/Fiberglass Baffle
Radiator and Cooling System
Switches
Remote Oil Filter System
Shocks
Mirrors
"Spare Tire" in a can
It even has a velcro fastened hide a key...
And yes, there is oil in the engine, I can pull the dipstick to prove it...

The Super Seven i think, is the most horrible car ever made. But your detailing work is amazing, very nice.
