- Parts added on the engine,
-Test fitting of the inlet pipes on the cylinder heads.
- Gearbox parts glued with the brakes calipers installed for a test fit too.









Then holes... small holes... hundreds of tiny holes... :huh: :ohmy: :S

Here we go:









A light sanding, dusting and general checking and, like nature ... do not like the empty :







Rivets... small rivets... hundreds of tiny rivets... :evil: :pinch:

Quick view from the "Dark Side" :



I set about installing mirrors on the body ... not so easy!
I noted the dimensions depending pictures of the car and decorating instructions for positioning.
Drilled two holes to be able to insert copper wire in each mirror, and drilled the upper body including one hole slightly larger on the front for adjustment.
I let a bit length for inserting two bolts on the inside face of the bodywork part.



Few things were done on the engine and you can see the comparison with his little brother from 1969...



Wheels painted gold:



Onc again 67 & 69:





Time to test the "Surface Primer" from GRAVITY COLORS.
the good point is that it works upon resin, metal and plastic.

First of all some parts need to be prepared or finished before painting process.
... And holes need to be done once again!
But it seems I like rivets :roll:

1st, drilling the PE:



In position:



holes drilled in the resin tub :

Pics with and without the camera flash: 
Surprising 1st almost transparent coat, then miracle and a real pleasure to work with!





The nose



Still little work to do on the nose

Top results:




Slight problem on the nose and upper body part due to Staedtler permanent ink marker: still visible after primer...

ZP Black





Here are the "wrongdoers"... :twisted:



GRAVITY paints are AWESOME!!
Easy to work with, extremly thin coats can already give a beautiful result and a strong deep satin finish.
They also dry very quickly: perfect!!
Next step is the finnish coat that will be given by the Clear.

So let's go for the Gravity Colors clear coat test!

New gloves, stirrer and cup for the mix.



3 components: clear, activator and thinner with a 3:1:1 mix ratio.



I always let the mix at rest for about 5 to 10 minutes in order to let allow to the chemical mix to degas.
You can add more thinner if necessary.

Then, one mist coat and, 5 to 10 mn later, a wet coat (or more): that's all!

Parts drying in the "magic box":






To sum up:

Great and pleasant product.
The gloss is... SHINNING!! Deep gloss even if thin.
Only 6ml of clear 2ml of activator and 2 of additive thinner were used...

Alclad gold on the center of the wheels.



The ones shown before were the 1968 312 F1 :oops:

The tub is drilled and equiped with 0.5 stainless steel rivets.
Then the tub parts are assembled (welded) with low temp solder (70°C).



Same thing for the front tub part with Calibre 35 0.7resin rivets this time.
The frontwhite metal bulkhead and his PE part are drilled, but I didn't used the PE part...
I just used it as a template for, I think, a more realistic result.
Once again, Calbre 35 0.7 resin rivets were used.



The steering column is cut and the external part of the steering rack is replaced by stainless steel 1.2mm syringe needle cut at the right size.
0.7 resin rivets once again.
Pedals won't be visible at the end...

Gauges are covered with a "glass" made of Rodhoid cut with a Waldron Punch & Die but it's not really visible on the pics :? ...

Cavallino !



Radiator is ... empty!
I've tried to make it a bit more realistic or, if not, just more pleasant for me :mrgreen:

Brass 0.8 and Alu scotch "aircraft" type:



Nice and still bright...




Fwd and aft mesh:

Primer GC:






Dampers are great: made of machined aluminium.
Just a detail added from F1 Specialties.
I wonder if I haven't already seen the same detail added somewhere...


Not perfect, but not bad :)

Black ...is black:





Almost invisible once the engine is assembled to the body, but I couldn't resist :twisted:



Teflon mask and Orange FRAM from Gravity Colors.



Oil filter done ;)

Well, here's one which is all disheveled, long hair and loose:



We'll have to take care of him ...

I did not like the original links more than that.
I decided to make new ones:



A nice hair cut and new links installed:







The "jars" are polished and fitted to the roll bar .
I took the opportunity to install RB Motion Banjo fittigs:



It remains to connect all this little world ...

New paint for the wheels: the Gold done before didn't please me...
So Primer, Alclad Black, then Alclad Gold tomorrow:





Wheels are drilled for the Valve stems from Rob.

Schock absorbers are also primed with Gravity.

Here the work of the day: brakes!
In order to properly clean, coloring and "scratch" the disks (White Metal), I quickly crafted small plates of turned aluminum.
They will allow me to hold them on a small tool holder to be fixed in the drill chuck.

Turned parts:



Disk on the tooll:



Done but still dirty:



The rear discs are detailed with beautiful PE parts, but lack detail for my taste.



0.4 holes drilled in the part:



Allen head from Rob (RBMotion):



Brakes are also... Calipers :wink:
Drilled and equipped with copper pipes and brake bleeders from Rob once again

Hi,

Thank you very much guys!

I started to work on the gearbox:



...but was not very satisfied.
So, I tried to add some more details:







J'ai aussi bien travaillé sur le reste des éléments du train arrière et des photos ne devraient pas trop tarder...

Plumbing time for the front bulkhead:

Small progress on the rear:

First try of the white color: ZP "pure white".
And weld lines:



Plumbing of the dashboard started:



Black painted caps, then mask and paint process including Klir for the finish coat and oil .
Seam is intentionally left in order to depict (or try to...) the plastic bottle.



Lockheed bottles installed:





Light wash on the metal tanks:



...And finally a small test fit:

ZP White is now applied on the exhaust parts:





Few details added on the dashboard: Nuts, bolts, wiring...





Still working on the battery... waiting for cables:



New machined knob, polished and installed on 0.8 SS rod.
The beautiful genuine grid is just detailed with machined bolts and lightly weathered.



Cockpit is now almost done.
I also decided to scratch build the fuel tap which appears on some of my pics, but not on others...

The wire mesh which protects the velocity stacks against ingestion of (FOD) is shaped using the included tool.
The mesh is a bit too "flashy" for me.
I put the grid under the flame to give it a more suitable color.
The shaping is thereby slightly more facilitated.
A small test seems to validate this solution.













As mentioned above, the heat shield is made, its implementation validated.
it only remains some paint and weathering:



Exhaust assembled:



And exhaust clamps installed:



A new light coat of white is quickly sprayed, then a thin coat of Aqua Gloss in order to protect the paint.


Sorry for the pics...

The heat shield is sprayed with Alclad White alu over a primed Dull Alu base:



The mesh is temporarily installed.

Test fit of the exhausts over the heat shield:



Weathering started (oils):









It may need to be accentuated (very slightly) in some areas and reduced for others.

well, I hope you're enjoying this build as much as I am...

Hello,

Rollbar finished and installed:



Engine also installed and everything is connected (Oil filter, tachometer...)

Hubs are modified to avoid the use of the black screws: I prefer ball joint ;)









A screw head is added on the dampers adjustment knobs:
