Well,I got ANOTHER bad rain day here,so into the hobby chest I dive. I know this a technically a 1/32 scale  car,but I thought I would get more responses here . I have acquired  several Classic Maserati chassis and bodies and have decided to turn one of these into a completed car. (I do not think I will ever build the others,but have EVERYTHING to do them also.) As far as I know,these were ONLY offered as the second body option for the ASP and never came as a painted,finished car by them selves???  :unsure:

 

So my questions here:

 

#1 Where to properly place the body???  I can literally move the body back and fourth on the chassis like 3/8" in.  I am thinking centering up in the squared in area on the rear quarter panel of the body might be correct??  Any facts/opinions here?

#2 I am really wanting a good,proper paint lay out of this car. (Cock pit,exhaust,any other detailing,ECT......) DID Classic ever offer this body sold by itself outside of the ASP second body factory painted???? Any photos of this???

 

Thanks for all input.  ;)

I've never seen the 1/32 come body factory painted.

 

Centered in the boxed area would make sense but it probably won't cover the guide flag up front.

Put the flag on and then decide.

I would think the rear axle centerline would be just behind the cockpit.   There might be a good reference picture of the real car somewhere on the net.

The determining factors, since the WB and GL are fixed, are:

-flag

-crown gear

Gator Bob, I was doing JUST THAT when I was posting this. If I shift the body forward,It keeps the guide flag concealed with in the body lines. 

I just want to reproduce this car as close as Classic Ind. would have made a finished car back in the day.  ;)

The rear axle center line is in the front of the box.
That's because the leaf spring is located at the rear edge.

And I agree, give yourself as much nose as possible to cover the guide.
Centerline of the front axle is right at the forward hood gap line.

Jairus, the Model Maker drawing is grossly inaccurate!  The drawings by Walkden Fisher were produced very quickly and it is likely that Fisher never even saw most of the cars he drew for this and other magazines, and of course there were no factory prints available since there never were any!

Then again, the little body by Classic is too, so hey, what's the hay.   :unknw:

The only decent 3-view drawings I could find are that of the earlier ACGCM/250 modelled by Strombecker and the 250F/V12 that was so unsuccessful...

Here's one I thew together from a British Dave Jones Shell. Stirling Moss in the Offset Monza car in 1/32, with a Richard Mack Chassis.

Even though it's offset, the proportions are pretty good.

AWESOME job on the car Chris! Mine will not be that fancy or detailed. It will just represent the look of the Classic brand that were not nearly as detailed .

Another Dave Jones shell - rear tires are a bit oversized to meet a ground clearance spec

ANOTHER nice car Alan. WOW!  I will be using those cars to do the details of these cars .Painted exhaust,Silver gas cap,and silver on any of the "bups" in the body that represent body mounting hardware.)

 

But to say again,these Classic bodies are pretty much plain and not nearly as detailed as more prominent bodies that are made. As long as it looks SOMEWHAT  like Classic would have released as a finished car back in the day,I would be happy.
