    • Ferrari 126 c2

      Hello everyone I am doing a ¼ scale Ferrari 126 engine c2 my intention is to make the whole car but for now I am alone with the engine put a question Ask a Question
      But I have not had any response
      I also make the inside of the engine but can not find any photo to serve me

      Use polystyrene panels 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 mm, PVC rods 10, 8, 6, and 3 mm sections and tubes of different EverGreen and to smooth the joints use two component epoxy putty

      For reference I use the model of MFH and thousands of photos I've gotten on the Internet also have manuals Promocom scale 1:8, revell 1/12 and MFH 1/12
      My working method is a bit complicated as I have no plans or quality photo inside the engine
      I first volume of the piece that I want to play using the measurements of the model that MFH tripled and then adding or removing things go as needed so I had to repeat many times the same piece

      If someone wants to modify the text in English so you can understand it better to do
      Here is some photos of my engine

      Hola a todos estoy realizando a ¼ de escala el motor del Ferrari 126 c2 mi intención es hacer el coche entero pero de momento solo estoy con el motor puse una pregunta en [B]Ask a Question [/B]
      Pero no he tenido ninguna respuesta
      Quiero hacer también la parte interna del motor pero no encuentro ninguna foto que me sirva
      Utilizo planchas de poliestireno de 1, 2, 3, 4, y 5 mm, varillas de PVC de 10, 8, 6, y 3 mm distintos perfiles y tubos de EverGreen y para suavizar las juntas utilizo masilla epoxi de dos componente
      Como referencia utilizo la maqueta de MFH y muchas fotos que he conseguido en internet también tengo los manuales de Promocom escala 1:8, revell 1/12 y MFH 1/12
      Mi método de trabajo es un poco complicado como no tengo planos ni foto de buena calidad del interior del motor
      Primero hago el volumen de la pieza que quiero reproducir utilizando las medidas de la maqueta de MFH que multiplico por tres y después voy añadiendo o quitando cosas según convenga por eso he tenido que repetir muchas veces la misma pieza

        I like your project, but I didn't see a question, unless it is that you are seeking a set of plans for the engine. I would expect contacting a Ferrari club might give you some leads. I am building a model of a different Formula car, and although I have access to the car, I also have no plans to work from. That means lots of adjustments to make parts fit together in the end. You might want to give particular attention to the location of motor mounts and hose hookups, as those will need to be pretty close when you try to put the motor into a chassis. Taking measurements off of photos is never super-accurate, so finalizing components as a group, instead of individually, seems smart. It does kill some of the satisfaction of finishing a part, to motivate you to continue, but it should all come together in the end. Good luck!
