Looking to get the closest thing I can to make one like this:

This Red Fox Ferrari looks close but I'm not sure if it's the right one:

Thanks for any help :D

The Redfox body has the exhaust coming out on top of the engine, you want the exhaust coming

out the side of the engine.

I see that now, thanks Vince. If anybody has any ideas on what to use, I'll appreciate it.

Pablo,

 

I think I might have one of the original Pactra Ferrari bodies. It's considered a 1/24th scale body but it's real small. I'll root it out if you are interested in seeing it.

If it's a V12 3 liter and looks like the one at LASCM, I "need" it :D

If it's up in the rafters of the pole barn, I hope the rats haven't eaten it :)

Dubro had one that was similar. That RTR also  used the Honda F1  and Harrison Ford bodies.

Pablo, now that Michael mentioned  Dubro and Maurizio posted that picture of the of the label I'm pretty sure that's what it is.

 

I'll still send it to you and you can figure out if it's what you want.

Just one thing. Many years ago PdL wrote Pactra body is longer and wider than Du_BRO.

This body is made by John Dillworth in UK

 

for comparison the other car is a repop of the incredible beautiful Lancer Eagle  :-)

Dilworth does indeed do a repull of the Pactra 66 Ferrari, he also does the Dubro version which is quite a bit smaller than the Pactra, both are very good but the nicest is the Lancer version he does which is really rather nice with sharper detail than the other two.

Pappy, I don't see any either. Those must be a couple of the new wireless slot cars. :)  I do recall seeing that surface in some of Niels' other photos.

A little late, but here is the two 1966 Ferraris I have from John Dillworth

The Dubro repop is small - the other one is the same type as I posted previously in this thread
