The idea was using some unusual color scheme...

1967 Gerhardt-Ford livery seems quite a good one...










No decal... Only paint...

I really like the Fink Coloring logo, but shouldn't his thumbs be to the outside?
:-D

Here we are!





Fenix Classique line is moving into the in the roaring 70’s, when March was one of most popular F1 team.

After having shown and race the prototype at the last ETS in Trencin, we’re extremely happy to introduce the Classique March 761 F1 body.






This body is moulded after a scan of the real 761, and we must thanks March’s right owner for the huge support he gave us, supplying us all the Faro 3D files of his own car.

On top of that, we were able to meet a March 761 in “flesh and bolts” at the Minardi Day and finalize the last details.

Due this, body is extremely detailed in the motor and rear suspension area, reaching an impressive details level.

If you like to make the Monaco 1976 versions, w/o the airbox, using our Classique aluminium air intakes, the body appearance is definitely at concours level.




In 1976 and 1977, March 761 was used by a large number drivers, most notably Ronnie Peterson who gave March his last F1 victory, but also Vittorio Brambilla, Lella Lombardi, HJ Stuck, Arturio Merzario, just to name a few of the most famous, then there is an almost endless list of privateers, as March was running basically 2 teams: the works one and the “bring enough money plus a can of paint and you can race in F1”, this means that there are at least 15 different racing livery…


Body is fitting Tamiya F103, Tamiya F104 and fit most of the actual F1 1/10 line and is supplied transparent.

I'm happy that you really give RC vintage formula one a push!
With all the Classique bodies you've brought to the market so far, I see that you have a true passion into that.

Did you make any progress on the classique driver heads so far? I was searching on fenixracingshop this morning for it but couldn't find any yet, or am I just not able to find it?

Working on "the other six wheels" F1... The March 240




A bit of story:
1976…. a crazy year in F1, that was a time where designers could explore far more than today.
Tyrrell develop the “P34” a 6 wheels, with 4 steering wheels.

Less people known that March start an ambitious project as well: the 2-4-0
The name stands for
2 steering wheels
4 wheel drive
0 differential

The idea was – somehow – too good to be true: Better traction, less aero drag, but most important it could get some sponsor attention.

But, for a small team like March, was somehow more than they could chew, nevertheless it reach the goal to help in cover part of the budget needed by the team, getting enough money to cover the Ian Scheckter's works car with a main sponsor for the whole season.
If check the other works car, Ronnie Peterson's one, was often carrying "last minute sponsors" during the race, having the car sponsorless in the qualify runs.

Real car was used just few times during private tests, by Ian Scheckter, Jodi’s brother.

Later… the 4wd package was sold to Roy Lane who fit it over his March 771, used in Hillclimb races, where the car score some victories.

Car can be seen at the Louwman Museum, in Holland
https://www.louwmanmuseum.nl/…/Ontd…/march-240-771-formula-1
Or used sometime at Goodwood or in Historical races.

As his sister 761, we’ve to say an huge “thank you” to Marchives www.marchives.com for the support.

Cool ! The 78 replica. Ground effect included?
I see F103 front suspension on the dwawing. So it is specific designed for the wide F104W and different sized front and rear wheels (as a real classic F1 should be)
Looking forward how you will solve some design issues on this one.

A quick glance at my Classique and the chassis looks narrow enough to have the tunnels ....at least until you get to the rear pod.

Ground effect is very tempting...

I still have to decide "IF"...
Classique will held this in a very easy way...

But, I'd like the body to be used on the F103/F101/F102/F104 family...

Airbox will be a Pain In.... to solve... but I'm confident... ;-)
