1:43-Scale, Super-detailed, Fully-opening, Hand-built Models of the Ferrari Dino 206 S Spyder by Pierre Laugier, LP Creation

Two One-off, 1:43-Scale, Super-detailed, Hand-built Models of the Ferrari Dino 206 S Spyder, 1966 1000km Nürburgring

This project is of two models of the Ferrari 206 S Spyder.  One model is a built-model, the other is a scratch-built chassis model.  


I had orginally begun this project in October 2017 with the idea to create an entirely scratch-built model in brass and copper.  You may have seen some early photos.  However, in early 2018 I decided to switch to a two-model project, keeping the chassis frame that I had aleady begun.

The majority of the photos show the fully scratch-built chassis model.  Everything has been made from scratch apart from the wheels (note the wheels in the photos of the work-in-progress are not fixed to the  model and were for display purposes only). 


The chassis frame has been made using brass tube which I have soldered together.  The suspension system and wheels hubs are also scratch-built in various materials. Other parts include a new engine, side tanks and radiator in plasticard; trumpets in turned aluminium; a new dashboard, pedals and gear lever; and the bracket for the spare wheel.


The built-model is based on an AMR kit of the 206 S and it has been transformed into the Nürburgring version.  This transformation required the creation of two, new, scratch-built spoilers in brass for the rear of the car, a new cockpit interior, dashboard, and instruments, amongst other things. 


The final group of photos are of the two finished models, which are displayed on separate bases.

​Three Dino Ferraris were entered in the 44-lap race.  All three were virtually identical open cars, a works one driven by Scarfiotti/Bandini (#11), a N.A.R.T.-owned one operated by the works team and driven by Rodriguez/Ginther (#12), and the English Maranello Concessionaires car driven by Piper/Attwood (#14).  This model is the works car, chassis number 004, driven by Ludovico Scarfiotti and Lorenzo Bandini, which came in second behind Jo Bonnier and Phil Hill in a Chaparral 2D.


These models were finished in January 2019 and were on display at Retromobile 2019.


These models are no longer available, but if you are interested in commissioning a similar display, please do not hesitate to Contact Me.
