1:43-Scale, Super-detailed, Hand-built Model of the Ferrari 312 F1, 1968 Canadian Grand Prix

This is the third Ferrari 312 F1 that I have built, and the first of a version from 1968 - Chris Amon's car from the 1968 Canadian Grand Prix. Having taken the lead after overtaking Jochen Rindt at the start, Amon remained ahead until the car had to be retired with only 17 laps to go due to transmission failure. 

The model has been built largely "from-the-box" using a Tameo Silverline kit, and I have used some of the same techniques and hand-made parts that I used on the versions from 1967, but I have also included some changes. 

 

Some of the new additions include a new, scratch-built dashboard in brass with turned parts; new cans on the rollbar in turned brass; a new can for collecting the excess oil; and new fuel injectors in turned aluminium with new cabling. 

 

Some of the same techniques include soldering brass tubes to make the various parts of the suspension arms, a new stablizer bar, new supports for the rear shock absorbers, a new roll bar, and new supports for the exhausts. I also added individual rivets to the bodywork, and various other fuel lines and cables. Finally, I hand-painted the white-metals parts such as the exhausts, fuel tanks, engine parts etc. using printers ink mixed with artist oil paints to create a “used” effect.

The model was finished in 2021 and was on display at Retromobile 2022.
