Never letting my hands be idle, I decided to build a neat 1967 in-line era pro-racer.
The motor is a Russkit 23 with a rewind arm and newer magnets.
Wheels are Russkit and the guide is Cox quick change.

The name "Bandini" is the name of the driver Lorenzo Bandini who raced the Fords in 1966 with his P3.
Lorenzo lost his life in 1967 during the Monaco Grand Prix when his Ferrari 312 hit a guard rail and rolled over catching fire.

If I had an Mk II body, I would have used it!

Wow Jairus, that is gorgeous! While the chassis looks amazing too, it is the paint job that really grabs my attention ... simply stunning!

Outstanding car.

 

Now where is the Ford?

The Ford is here finally.
I was asked by a customer to repaint a Scalextric GT 40 from the copper metallic color to the Black car #2 I think driven by Bruce McLaren. 1/24th scale by the way.
The body first was disassembled and the paint and markings stripped.
Then mold lines were sanded off and primed with Tamiya grey.
Next a couple light coats of fresh black applied.
Not easy with enamel paint as it takes about a week to cure.
Decals from Le Mans Decals, some trim painted and re-assembly.
Done!

It was not easy as black is difficult to work with.  No, I do not want to do another one so please do not ask unless you pay me more.

I am impressed by the hand-painted headlights on the Ferrari.  Is there some trick to that?  That looks seriously difficult to someone like me... with limited paintbrush skills.  :good:
