Handmade Ferrari 750 Monza body (1/3 scale?)
I just finished building this small scale 750 Monza at school and I thought some of you on this forum might like to see it. Previous students had built the wood buck which gave me a great opportunity to learn about panel making and body construction. I really love post war, handmade Italian sports cars so this was a great way to learn about the techniques that the old carrozzeria's would have used back in the day. The result is FAR from perfect but I learned a lot, and have a much greater appreciation for the craftsmanship of the old masters. I also really enjoy how rough and unplanished a lot of those old cars were so I decided not to pain this one and to let the evidence of my welds and hammer marks show. I also added race numbers that I artificially aged to go with the rough, patina'd look.
