The 1791 Thinkshop and 87 Ideas Workshop

Front door for the secondhalf of my life using my time while disabled to become a book reviewer, editor, and blogger……. Advocating for Liberty and Veterans who suffer with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Memory Impairment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumas, and those with Crohn's Disease and Seizure Disorder. Of course too I may muster the courage to begin my Scale Models again but fight tremor so bad that it maybe something best to just hang up and sell off. I've lost nearly every enjoyable skill and struggle with the idea of "doing it at all if I can't do so to the ability I once had". I'm most busy with doctors appointments and maintaining my 118 Year Old House, My Shop, Ranting, Retirement, and More… This blog was begun right before my health, career, and entire life's direction was wildly changed, so though the page is 3+ years old, it is bare boned.

Ferrari 312T4 Chassis in AlClad II

Got the primer, the base black and the AlClad Polished Aluminum on. Now it’s time for a clear sealer coat and detail work to begin on this chassis.

Ferrari 312T (Unbuilt) Unboxing

19 Nov Update- Received the unbuilt model today…. all the pieces appear to be accounted for. There are only a few parts separated from the sprues, but of concern is that the nose cowling molded in chrome is one of them. It looks as though it’s been bumped around quite a bit over the last 20+ years, but looking through a plastic bag; I can’t really tell. I’ll deal with that on another day though. The decals however are absolutely horrible and I will have to order some aftermarket to do the job

**Feel free to make a recommendation if you know of some good ones**

As with any kit, the first thing I’m going to do is to say the hell with the instructions and go straight for the engine! (It’s the American way!) Parts: A21, A17 (Engine Block), A20, A56 (Block Ends), and A18, A19 (Head Covers) are removed from the tree immediately. I already have them in a kevlar bag upstairs in the bedroom with my mobile tool bag and will trim the sprue bits off before I go to bed tonight. Test fitting that will make me feel as though I’ve actually begun this build. I have about 5 different shades of aluminum and steel Alclad that are going to bring this huge 12 cylinder Ferrari Boxer engine to life. The clutch is a Borg & Beck driven by a Ferrari 015 Trasversale transmission. More to come, but aside from the decal let down I’m very happy with the unboxing of the Ferrari 312T4.

-Thanks for looking
