I decided to do a new body for my old and trusty first Neckcheese MkII plumber chassis and opted for the HowmetTX Ferrari 1512 in NART livery. I had previously done one in the no.7 Surtees version, so this time I made Bandini's no.8 car.

The rivert-counters among you will cry out that tis is not 100% identical to the 1964 Mexican GP Bandini car, but it looks the part to me :-)

I had to replace the Lotus wheel inserts with Ferrari insert painted this strange "Baby"-blue colour Ferrari used at the time. decals are home made and are the usual Corel Draw/Canon Inkjet combination. All the blue colour is decals.

The 3-4 year old chassis still performs well and deserves a nice looking body

I added extra weight at the rear (not very nicely done) as practice has shown that heavier cars are an advantage since we changed from rubber to foam tyres.
