After seeing several really good versions on the forum and following some of the build ideas from Ian H's excellent conversion i was inspired to have a go myself, so i started with a trashed old march 6 wheeler from ebay and have tried to convert it to the March 761 ford of Vittorio Brambilla from the 1976 season, low airbox version of the Nurburgring race, ive also tried having a bash at a new rear ring to get a more accurate look not brilliant but hey she'll do for me.

Its pretty much done just gotta get some new rear tyres as the old ones are shredded.

Yeah pretty good all i did was the usuall clean up job, re solder the conections and new brushes and she's not bad, won't break any lap records but does the job.

I was thinking of trying this myself.
Could you possibly break-down how you went about the conversion??
Chassis - engine - etc?
Many thanks,
Jack

Hi Jack, Unfortunatly i did'nt take pictures of the build process but all i did was follow Ian H's lead and pretty much coppied his excellent build the link i see he has posted on this thred, i just did the low airbox version from the german gp race of '76, As to be honest i was'nt overly happy with the airbox i made that was my only different mod from is build.

hope that helps, Luke
