One day I saw a picture of this car, and that started a search that took 2 years and some 400 e-mails.

This car is not well known and inspite of my research the true story has not been found. Some articles state that this is one of the 2 "IMSA" Ferrari F-40, that has been modified, but these 2 cars still exist today.
My guess is that the chassis was completely custom build, and that only an original F-40 body and engine was used.
The Barchetta was owned by the belgian racing driver Jean "Beurlys" Blaton, and it has been extensively modified. First the custom build chassis was installed, later it was rebuild as a barchetta (or spider). The engine work was done by Michelotto, the body work by Tony Gilette (who also builds the Gilette Vertigo).
It received an F1-type suspension (horizontal springs, sort of the the type you find in the F-50 and Enzo). The entire exhaust system was altered, the exhaust pipes come out at both sides, just in front of the rear wheels.
Specifications : electronic injection Weber-Marelli IAW, 2 turbos IHI with 2 Behr intercoolers, pressure 2,5 Bar, 760 BHP at 7800 RPM, gearbox Enforced Hewland 5 speed + reverse (Crabots), weight 800 kg, rims BBS E-19 style 3-piece magnesium centerlock racing with Goodyear tyres, topspeed 360 km/hr.

These picture show the F1-type suspension :

A lot of work will be needed to make it look like the 1/1 car, and I hope that I will succeed in finishing it. (Sofar, it's been a real nightmare, with a lot of headaches http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/7.gif )

OK, here we go :

First thing I did was cut the ducts out of the front bonnet, and put them in the "side walls", just in front of the rear wheels :

Here's are some pics of the work I did during the last 3 years.

The cooling vents were opened up with a Dremel :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/338.jpg

I cut the roof off :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/339.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/340.jpg

Widened the doors and made the firewall from plasticard :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/341.jpg

Rebuild the sidewalls and tunnel of the "cockpit" :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/342.jpg

Made the hole (left side of picture) for the headlights bigger :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/343.jpg

Opened the louvers on the front hood :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/344.jpg

Reshaped the louvres because they were to wide (left side is reshaped) :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/345.jpg

Reshaped them for the third and final time :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/346.jpg

And used my Dremel to change this :

The metal body is quite heavy, Pocher designed the chassis so that it can take the weight :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/378.jpg

But with the Beurlys, this is all that will remain :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/379.jpg

I started with a piece of plexiglass :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/380.jpg

This will hold the brass tubes for the engine mount. The long metal tube will go through the engine and gearbox to take the weight of the body :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/381.jpg

So far so good :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2011/11/382.jpg

The gearbox is from Hewland, this will be scratchbuild :

Pascal, you asked about the photos. The best way is to upload them into an album in the SMC Gallery then use those photos in your post. We ask members to do that just in case your current photo hosting changes. Now your using Modelbouw. If they change a setting or that site closes then we loose all the images and your thread dies because theres no images to follow.

That's a good point, Dan. I use Photobucket and it's been a royal pain to keep things straight at times. With the way it works now, it's a lot easier.

It's been a while. Time to show some pics :

Being a Barchetta, the walls of the cockpit are wider than that of a factory F40. This was my first try :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2012/06/285.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2012/06/286.jpg

The second took a lot of work :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2012/06/291.jpg

Then the sidewalls started to look "ginormous", but compared with the pics of the real car, they look just right :

Long time no see...

But here we go again.

The original Pocher gearbox and engine need a lot of modification. First step :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/17.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2420&title=2809t-2-&cat=504)

The part in the middle is not on the Hewland gearbox of the 1/1 Beurlys :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/18.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2421&title=2809t-3-&cat=504)

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/19.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2418&title=2809t&cat=504)

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/20.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2419&title=2809t-1-&cat=504)

To fix the gearbox and engine to the back of the cockpit / firewall and to give some strength to the front suspension a metal rod will run through the entire length of the chassis :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/21.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2622&title=0910b-6-&cat=504)

The tunnel has been widened and hollowed out :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/22.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2623&title=0910b-7-&cat=504)

So that it covers the metal rod :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/23.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2624&title=0910b-8-&cat=504)

Fitted a piece of wood inside the engine block and drilled a hole in it to accept the metal rod :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/24.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/25.jpg

The part between the engine and gearbox will be made out of different layers of plastic :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/31.jpg

The front suspension will be scratchbuild. In order to fit the parts, more plastic was removed from the frame :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/34.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=860)

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/35.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=861)

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/36.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=862)

A dryfit with the brass tubes :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/37.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=863)

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/38.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=864)

Cut to size and soldered together :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/39.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=866)

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/07/40.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=867)

These tubes won't be glued to the chassis untill the build is almost complete. So at this point there a removable :

Geetings Wet Celery! Saw this posted today on GT Spirit and thought I'd post it on your build. I hope it inspires you to keep at it and finish. Perhaps that was even you in the passenger seat! I seem to remember the owner posting he would message you about a ride if you'd build him one! Nonetheless - I'm sure lots of us would love to see a finished build! Here's a little inspiration.

Thanks guys, sorry for the late reply.

That wasn't me in the passenger seat, actually I haven't heard from the owner for quite a while, but this project has been (and still is) on hold for quite a while too.

But in the meanwhile, I've got plenty of updates to show you guys where I got untill I had to pause this build for the commission builds.

The commission builds are a couple of 1/18 scale F40LM's and one GT. They're 1/18 scale unfortunately, to small for this forum.

Back to the Beurlys now :

Next thing on my list were the doors. A little plasticard here and there :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/1.jpg

Reference pic :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/2.jpg

Removed some metal from the inside of the doors :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/3.jpg

Modified the plastic inserts :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/4.jpg

Then I took my dremel and things got serious.

Before :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/5.jpg

After :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/6.jpg

Modified the door hinges :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/7.jpg

And the dashboard :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/8.jpg

Back to the doors. Kevlar stickers with a coat of Tamiya smoke to give the stickers a "used look" :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/9.jpg

Even 1/8 scale needs some tiny details :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/10.jpg

More stickers :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/11.jpg

Inserts glued to the doors :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/11.jpg

I filled the gaps with plasticard, needs a lot of sanding :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/12.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/13.jpg

The area in front of the dashboard and between the wheels is unique for the Beurlys. It will be made from plasticard :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/25.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=1094)

The piece of acylic will become the sidewall of the radiator-box. As you can see, it has a complex shape :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/26.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=1095)

More plasticard :

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2015/05/27.jpg (http://www.modelbouwen.be/PP/index.php?n=1445)

And again more plastic of the Pocher frame was removed :

Looking forward to seeing further work on this! I know the feeling of having these things drag on longer than planned. Dealing with not having time to work on it and each little segment taking longer than expected seems to be the way of things here. Don't give up!

Hi Larry,

The Beurlys is still on hold. The commission builds are on other fora, if it's allowed I'll post some links.

Even though there is not s specific category for 1/18th builds I would think they would still be welcomed here. I'd love to see your other work.

Any progress on your build of late? Saw this video about the history of the car in my Youtube feed and wondered how it is going. Hope all is well.

Are the parts (31 pieces !) are glued together :
