1:43-Scale, Hand-built Model of the March Ford 701,  1970 Spanish Grand Prix

A Tameo Silverline kit of the March Ford 701 was used to build this new model.  It's Mario Andretti's car from the 1970 Spanish Grand Prix where he finished third. 


I have, as usual, made a number of modifications to the kit using my own scratch-built parts.  One new feature on this model is the addition of scratch-built fuel injectors, each of which is made from 5 parts. There are some photos at the end of the stream which show the steps in creating these parts from brass and aluminium; the wire for this example was added later.  Other features include a a new fuel cap in brass; a new dashboard with instruments made from turned parts rather than decals; a new gear stick; a new roll-bar in brass; new water lines in aluminium tube which are attached to the body with scratch-built brackets in brass; various nuts and bolts have been added to the bodywork and roll-bar; and various lines and cables have also been added to the engine.

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.
