  • Ferrari 312T and 312T2 Builds

    I finally got some time to finish Gary's latest Formula 1 bodies - his Ferrari 312T and 312T2.

    The bodies did not need much prep-work to get into the paint booth. After priming I shot the white first (Tamiya Pure White TS-26), then masked where the white decals were located. I then painted the red (Tamiya Italian Red TS-08). I also added scratch built mirrors and used Bare Metal Foil for the wings. Indycals for the decals (also outstanding).

    They look fantastic on my scenic track. See photos. I also included photos of all my Fastlap Formula 1 cars (the Tyrrell P34 was a heavily modified resin I purchased long ago but fits in well with Gary's bodies).

    Many thanks to Gary Fast - I appreciate his efforts to make bodies of subjects dear to me and for the outstanding quality of his bodies. Just wow!

    I am currently working on a March 761. Stay tuned...

    These 312T's are spectacular!! Your modeling skills are well beyond most. I love the addition of the mirrors. What did you use to make those? I can't wait to see what you come up with in regard to the March.

      I like the 312T version with the tall air box the most. Here is the one I did.

        Thanks Gary.

        For the mirrors I use Evergreen round styrene rod that a sand to shape and then paint. I do this on the ends of the rod and then cut off. Then I glue them to the body with canopy glue. I think it adds a nice detail.

        I am really working the March. The original body was sized for the G-Plus chassis. My mods include - reshaping the side pods, lower and elongate the cockpit, reduce the air box and rear wing and adding the side radiators. Will look much more scale.

        I anxiously await your McLaren M23’s but I am looking forward to working on my larger scale static models. These 1:64-scale stuff is tough on the eyes!

          Who made the March?

            A friend in Virginia. He also made the Tyrrell P34 casting. Unfortunately, he does not make them anymore.
