There are few if any models in the world to rival the Ferrari 312PB built by Pierre Scerri of Avignon, France.
This 1/3 scale marvel is the real thing in every sense of the word, from its operating 12-cylinder engine to the exact scale operating Ferrari gauges which are calibrated precisely to indicate rpm, oil pressure, water temperature and oil temperature.



Here is a link to the story with many detailed photos.

Hey TXL, I've been spending most of time on various motorcycle boards. But I haven't been online as much as in the past.

Really.  Sounds like a 1:1 scale would just be 9 times as much money for materials, and you'd have a working car.
