Well being housebound due to recent health problems (again) has it's advantages, I can build and post photo's to my hearts content.

This Time it's a 1964 BRM P-261, as driven by Mr Monaco Himself: Mr Graham Hill. Naturally he won that years Monaco G.P. But this is that same car, but in the next race in Holland. Number 6.

The body is one of Dave Jones latest shells, all orifices opened up, and duly reinforced on the inside with glass fibre cloth and super glue.

This body is extremely narrow, and the new Mk 3 Beardog chassis just fits. Motor is an untested as of yet Mk-2 Beardog Mini motor with carbon brushes, I'll soon see how that runs. Wheels? The last of my stock of 13" BWA's and for once! detailed suspension.

An Immense Miniatures Graham is sitting in the wings, completed, but not yet installed.



Paint is my usual mix of Tamiya British Green and Dark Metalic Blue misted on while the green is still wet, rivet decals are by Indycals,
and the accurate numbers are by Scale Auto.



Believe it or not the best tyres I could find for this car are some still soft 1960's MRRC BRM units,
the correct size, and still soft. Inserts are some of the last cast by the man himself: Mr. Al Penrose.



Graham finding the cockpit very snug, but comfortable. The excellent Immense Miniatures Graham figure has to go on a diet to fit the Dave Jones body cockpit. a little bit of slimming and he fits fine.



Still a little bit of tweeking required, he still needs a dash and the fuel pick-up,
(the one in the front of the cockpit under the circular opening in the windscreen).

Je comprends bien quand il dit que la carrosserie est en fibre de verre?

à mon avis, mais l'erreur est humaine et c'est même à ça qu'on réussit à détecter l'homme
derrière le marchand de caisse d'occase , le banquier Suisse ou le blanchisseur Luxembourgeois.Idem pour l'adjudant chef et le directeur de tout poil carie
Je pencherai donc plutôt pour une coque résine, très fine et pleine des ouvertures nécessaire à tout l'accastillage,
que Mr Wright renforce , par l'intérieur, d'une fine toile "de verre" enduite de cyano.

Il m'arrive de pratiquer cela avec de petits morceaux de tissus coton ordinaire,
ça marche mais c'est certainement moins solide que son truc

Je fais ça avec du PQ et de la résine polyester dans les coques de mes bateaux
Mais c'est une bonne combine avec la cyano...
