Without wishing to monopolise the 1960s F1 theme (I would love to see some others work), here's another car currently under construction which I mentioned I was planning in another thread.

Once again it's one of the excellent Classic shells. This BRM raced during a dip in the team's fortunes after Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart left the team at the end of 1966 & 67 and the team struggled with the H16 engine before admitting defeat and switching to the V12 for 1968 that would eventually have some success in the 153 and 160 chassis in the early 1970s.

BRM's were always very well engineered and this car looked superbly packaged as well as being a good looking design, it was always one of my favourites. I always remember a high spot being Richard Attwood's great race at Monaco in 68 when he came close to winning.

The standard Scalex motor that I prefer to use for home track use just fits this slim bodyshell - here's a couple of work in progress pictures. You'll see that I've just broken through the shell with the Dremel around the engine exhaust and intake area as space is at a premium but I'll clean that up when I prepare the shell for painting.

David.I wouldn't worry about the fear of monopolising anything,I always am eager to see your latest work.As you know I have a BRM on the board now,just waiting for my "bits" to arrive,so I'll be keen to see your progress on the car,I've got a bit of a soft spot for the BRM, as a lad I saw Jackie Stewart carve up all and sundry in our long lost Tasman series here in the 60's.I always thought of the BRM as your equivalant of the aussie battler,not quite sure what I would politely call that(??).

Keep em coming

Cheers Terry mine from Chas at SCD,heaps to choose from,hard to know what to grab,especially from the 60's and 70's F1.

Cheers Terry
