Default '67 Ferrari 312 F1 finished

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.

Sherman –

This looks beautiful! I'm not surprised that you built something of such high quality and finish.

Regards!

Nice chassis and great detail on the body. Is it the classic body shell? You do know that you can get GP drivers from Maxi Model directly that would work great for that car. It takes some patience to work with him but he does come through in time.

Incredible work! F-1 cars of that era get my vote as the best F-1s ever.
