1:43-Scale, Super-detailed, Hand-built Model of the Ferrari 512S, 1970 12 Hours of Sebring

This is a new model of the Ferrari 512S, winner of the 1970 12 Hours of Sebring, driven by Ignazio Giunti, Nino Vaccarella and Mario Andretti. It has been built from the new, 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 was finished in 2020.  It is currently available to purchase from my online store Kit Miniatures.  Please click here to be taken to the store.
