    • 1:8 Scale Figoni & Falaschi RR Phantom II

      Stick 'um for resin parts-01cmp-jpgStick 'um for resin parts-03cmp-jpgAfter almost four years, my heavily- scratch built 1:8 scale model of the only Figoni & Falaschi RR Phantom II is finally complete. A couple of pictures are included here but I've also posted pictures in the RR gallery, in case you are interested.

      The project started with a Pocher K-72 kit, but the goal was to build an historically correct replica of the original. Of necessity, the chassis has been heavily modified and the body almost completely scratch built .

      Chassis changes and additions included a smaller (20 gall) fuel tank, torque reaction dampers, vertical front shock absorbers, Hartford auxiliary shock absorbers, fuel lines and fuel filter, and chassis lube lines. The engine was heavily detailed with engine controls, vacuum line, correct ignition wiring, etc., as well as the inclusion of a correct sized, correct version carburetor.

      Of the bodywork, only the hood (bonnet) came from the Pocher although it had to be lengthened and the louvers heavily modified to reflect the 'gradually falling' profile of the prototype. The shell is fiberglass, laid up in a silicone female mold. The fenders, seats, window winders and interior door handles were resin cast. The window winders work the front and rear windows via rack and gear systems and the quarter-lights open. Finally, just for the heck of it, the sidelights, headlights and brake lights are all fitted with LEDs! Many of these techniques were new for me so it's been a very long and steep learning curve.

      Hope you find this of interest.
