      Here I already told the story about the purchase of this brilliant model

      http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/...oni-italy.html

      I really donīt expect to see one single part so with the help of other customers who send me pictures, drawings (and even parts) I started scratching the missing parts.

      I started with the gearbox the most completed part to reproduce. Red are the missing parts of the gear house



      The shapes of the parts are rather complicated so I started with a drawing based on pictures.



      Also I made my first scratched part: the cover of the gear house. The white plastic is a bit faded :)



      As a kind of preparation before the real build I will successively replace the missing parts with my "own work" :D

      regards

    Ton - That is an outstanding project... you are going to love it. I built mine in 2005 and it is still today one of my favorite projects.

    I now realize I should have been more specific.

  7. Ton - here are some pictures of the gear box that may be useful for you to re-construct the missing parts. Also a picture of the exhaust pipes showing the before and after polishing work.

    I don't recall really having any problems. By virtue of the number of parts and complexity, it's not a project that goes quickly, but other than that, it was a joy. Don't be afraid to go "off the map" as you build. There are some sub-assemblies that are not fully accurate and there are some methods of attachment that just don't make any sense so I ad-libbed a few times.

    It's an exceptionally well made kit overall.

    I took a few hundred (thousand) pictures of my build if you would like to see anything just let me know.

    In the last couple of weeks I made a nice progress on reproducing the missing parts of the gearbox. It is not finished yet but there is enough to show :D

    On this picture all the reproduced parts are shown. The part in the middle is the "collar" between engine and gearbox housing. It is made out of plastic for the right measures but will be reproduced in brass because of the weight on both sides. The blue square show the parts from the kit which are the reference for reproducing the missing parts



    A dryfit is shown from the reproduced parts and the picture in the left corner shows the original without missing parts :evil:



    regards
