It's done! It represents Chris Amon's 312 from the 1967 season. All scratchbiult except for the driver figure which I had to rob from my Scaley Lotus 49- ouch. All .039 steel wire chassis with the same Scalextric motor and gear ratio as the Lotus and Eagle
Hope you like it.

Excellent work modelersc,
What material did you make the suspension detail out of? did you use piano wire ? and how did you join it together please where the coil spring and damper units are located ? Fantastic.
Thanks. Mike

Excellent car! I like these 1967-cars so much!

How did you do the soldering of the steel wire?

And could you please add some detail pics from the rear end?

I really love those exhausts....
It is also great to see how you have soldered suspension arms to the chassis.
A very cleanly finished model.
Something for me to aim for.

QUOTE How did you do the soldering of the steel wire?
......same as brass but use an acid flux and a bit more heat.

A beautiful, clean build. The chassis design has been very well thought out.

With kind regards,

Russell

I agree with the rest..... Lovely build brother. Great design.


Did you scatchbuild the body and engine details? Is it possible to get a photo or two of the chassis on it's own.

Again, cool build!

I've had lots of questions about the car and I'm very gratified. Here's some more shots of the car including some with the body off. The 'Bundle of Spaghetti' was built with individual pieces of .060 plastic rod. A base with 12 holes was glued to the motor in the correct position then each piece of rod was shaped to it's position and glued in place. When all 12 were in position, they were trimmed to length and the triple collector added. After that four final pipes were bent and glued on. Needless to say I'm scared to crash
