Excellent detailing on the dash and that is one big, beautiful engine Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 1705482731

Hi all well now the big Citroen is done I've promised myself I will finish this to add another stalled build to the finished pile.
I'm not sure why I put the engine in the chassis as it was not finished there is some pipework I hadn't added as you can see from this first pic

I really like the wheels on this kit, although they are a bit too shiney.

I think they look better now.

Hi all here's the next update the four breather holes in the hood were added after the speed run so I've filled them

The next problem I thought I might have was that the name mefistofeles is in black and with a black car obviously I would need to make a negative of it, however luckily enough the name was added after the run so it is not a problem after all.
The lettering was stark white so I've dulled it down a bit

Need to do a bit more research apparently it may have had 2 seats in the record run.

Hi all there would have been quite a big update on this, I'm starting to wonder if there is somthing wrong with me, I dropped it (this must be a dozen I've dropped in the last year) thing is I don't know why I dropped it I was about to put a screw in and next thing I knew it was on the floor (fortunately not too much damage ) but some thin bits of plastic may need replacing with copper wire, I'm starting to worry maybe I've got dropsy or something.

Sorry to hear about the 'incident.' Sending positive vibes for a minimum of repairs and a quick return to the build.

Hi all here's an update on this, I think the kit exhaust is toooo shiney,
Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 14dd3xx
Sooo, mask up the exhaust straps
Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 2l8usua
Spray with hairspray then sprinkle talcum powder on it
Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 Axz8s9
Respray with hairspray and then sprinkle on some salt
Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 21lqr2d
I think it looks much more realistic now

This is a sweet model ! I really appreciate the weathered, used look ! However, IMHO, I think you have gotten the exhaust a tad too 'crusty'

Over all, this is a beautiful old racer !!

Hi all well the world record version had two seats so the co driver could use the pump to increase the fuel/air mix.
Here is my first attempt at the extra seat.


Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 IMG_20170608_26886443435634
As you can plainly see it's rubbish, this was made with das modelling clay and I tried a few times with this (including trying to make a mould of the original but none were any good so I tried a different approach, i heated some 2 mil plastic and wrapped it round the seat, let that cool then heated some more and pushed inside that which (although not an exact copy gave me the shape of the seat) I then sanded and cut the sides to suit.
So here is the next version

Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 IMG_20170608_485461737064768
And here they are installed, just a few more bits to do now.

The extra seat turned out very nice. Looking forward to the checkered flag Italari 1/12 Fiat Mefistofeles - Page 3 1705482731
