1:43-Scale, Super-detailed, Hand-built Model of the Ferrari 512 S, Le Mans 1970

This is a new model of the Ferrari 512S NART from the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours.  The car was driven by Sam Posey and Ronnie Bucknum to 4th place.  The model has been built from the white-metal Montegrosso kit by Tameo Kits.

The main difference from the original kit is that I have replaced the rear bodywork in white metal with a much lighter, scratch-built part in resin.  Unlike the original kit, this new, rear body is now attached to the main body with my own, scratch-built micro-hinges, so that the rear can be both opened and closed on its hinges. 


Apart from this significant difference, the rest of the model is largely built “from-the-box” as Tameo have produced a very well-designed kit.  Nevertheless I have made a few modifications such as adding my usual fuel lines and cables, and creating a few new, scratch-built parts such as new tyre valves. 

The model is presented on a plexi-glass base (with plexi-glass cover), with an LP Creation name plate in brass.


The model was finished in 2023 and was on display at Retromobile 2023
