Boxer 312T - F1 Engine
- F1 WORLD CHAMPION 1975-1977-1979 -
This model is a faithful representation of the memorable Ferrari Boxer 312T-F1 engine, world champion with Niki Lauda in 1975 and 1977, and with Jody Scheckter in 1979.
The 1/3 scale model is made without using any plastic or adhesive, and assembled by hand: n° 27 hand-formed sand casting of aluminium galsi-9, made with n° 19 core boxes to hollow out and to shape the inside, achieving a considerable light weight; with this technique, it was possible to keep the total weight to only 7 kg. (excluding packing). N° 16 turned stainless steel parts, n° 19 turned aluminium parts, n° 13 tubes in polished aluminium, n° 141 holes and n° 94 screws.
The assembly of the different parts, including the grinding of levels, the holes with the screw cutting and the polishing of some castings, takes about 50 hours, and is done by expert hands.
It’s available in aluminium sand-blasted or in gold colored, and is equipped with an artistic table support, made, purposely in painted aluminium or polished by hand.
The model comes in a protective box, custom made, also suitable for air-mail shipping.
All our models are part of an exclusive and very limited hand-made production, that we hope is preserved in time with care and passion.
The overall dimensions are, table support included, 43 x 25 x 25 cm.
