What underpinnings would you use? Replicate means making an identical car in all the aspects, mechanical and dimensional. Is this your intention? Or will you make a look-alike?

166MM Barchetta is the correct name, 166mm Spyder sounds like a look-alike. Nevertheless, that is a very nice design, my favourite.

Good luck, I hope you decide to do the 166. By the way, why not do the 125 S? That is my absolute favourite, it even beats my darling 166.

Kevin, create a poll.

It would be interesting to see the # comparison of votes.

And add the 125S to the list - please!

Kevin- Before worrying too much about which car, you need to learn how to weld steel tubing and channel sections and also how to form aluminum body panels with an English wheel. Have to be able to do both to build a realistic Ferrari reproduction.

I vote for open wheel F1

I wish I had 330P4 body making skills because Ive wanted to do a rebody since Jess Pourret's the 250 Legend"came out in the 70's,,,some of those babies were rebodied half a dozen times,LOL Im well known as a crackpot, Id like a 360 F1 powered 312B open wheel but I would settle for a 599 rebodied as Preston Henns 275GTB LeMans racer.

BTW Ferrari's body builders did not use an English wheel, plus their welding was ugly .

Interesting, i didn't know that. Do you know if Scaglietti used the English Wheel? Making beautiful shapes out of flat aluminium panels has alway impressed me.

PSK- Yup, the panels were beaten over a wooden buck that was reused multiple times. For a replica, however, that may not be feasible. Ugly welding or not, and early Ferraris could not compare in quality to the Maserati brothers' work, the chassis was still welded, some by outside contractors.

Another common misconception I'm afraid. The wooden buck is used to offer panels up to and confirm shape not to actually hammer/beat over. Even if using an English wheel you still need a buck to confirm the shape you are making is correct unless you just want to guess ... but if you are making more than one, you need a buck.

I believe they use tree stumps and bags of sand, etc. for the actual hammering ... very clever.

Hello Guys,
some years ago on 1985 (i was 15 and i went to the technical school) ,I and my father mechanic, we had built a scale replica of Alboreto F1 car, with fiat 850 engine 903cc, where i put a turbocharged kkk.
The external body is in fiberglass and we also built the mold for it.
The frame is in tubular steel, the suspensions is pull rod type ...
Was a great experience.
Good work at who started a new built ....

Fabio, I'm very impressed!

If we happen to pass nearby your place when driving the Ferraris it would be nice to stop by and have a look at your creations.

Have you ever thought of building an F1 replica with a 360 or a 430 drive train? 500kg and 500hp!
