Another Ferrari

So, we are away from wheels and back onto Ferrari models. Here's my 166.

This is one which has been hanging around for ages, and since painting is out of the question I am raiding the 'already painted' box. Nothing special. The body is one of the old Gowland/Revell examples, albeit with a few modifications, primarily to the nose and tail.

The chassis is simple aluminium forming a wide channel section, the wheels are some Scalextric ones from a bulk buy a couple of years back, whilst a standard Mabuchi sits under the bonnet to allow full cockpit detail.

This is my test car. Like so many models I build, I bought two, one to make mistakes on and one to build once I am a little wiser.
