    Default Ferrari 512 S Analog

    Greetings,

    I am now in the process of mocking up what will hopefully be a shorter build than the last one. Experience and a little less complex (I hope) but even to get to this point has not been easy. In my case this is sort of a monocoque riding on another chassis and it has to function a bit like a supporting skeleton. I had a McAlistar Nissan GTP 90 body that I modified to be more like a Kremer K8 Porsche. It worked pretty well on my old chassis but doesn't fit the new one and so I started in thinking what could I do to modify it further and more to my liking. I love this particular version of the 1970 Ferrari 512 S so I thought I'd give it a go since the body is not worth anything to anybody but me. I've gathered lots of images, including blue prints and such and went about mapping things and pondering how I will do it. The body will be a mix of the front portion of the polycarbonate body and fabricated out of various things for the remaining 2/3's. I'll have to paint the outer side of the poly body so that the finish will be even in texture and shine between the mixed materials and I really do not want to try and remove the paint underneath.

    Here's the aspiration and inspiration.

    And a video that got me thinking what a cool machine this really is!

    Here's the original body from a while back.

    Now the perspiration as a result of the inspiration. Here's the mocked up monocoque chassis.

    And the mocked up monocoque chassis on the actual chassis.

    Here are two shots of the mocked up body. Lots of work to do!
