  1. I thought it might interest F1 collectors. If you're like me (old) you might find old F1 more interesting than actual F1 I've had the chance to work with some F1 guys and this is the result... With Classic Team Lotus: Lotus 78 and Lotus 49 With March owner The 761 and 240 Plus our Classique body Bodies are meant to fit F103 - F104, but I'm working also on several solution for alternative chassis
  2. As the legend goes… “The Mosquito Flies”. According the legend, this was the message that Tony Rudd gives to Colin Chapman as feedback, when the Lotus 78 model went to the wind tunnel. In 1977 Team Lotus was coming from the “Colin’s Confus-a-car”, aka Lotus 77, which was born with far too many variables to be really competitive and, on top of that, they were still struggling for a solution to compete with flat 12 cylinders coming from Italy… So, as may other times, the Team find a clever way to fight. The idea itself wasn’t super new, but the Team find a way to used it in a competitive way. The Lotus 78 was used during the 1977 season where it score 5 victories – 4 by Mario Andretti and 1 for Gunnar Nilsson. Only some un-necessary issues by his experimental DFV negated to Mario Andretti the Championship title, still getting a notable 3rd position in the ranking. Lotus 78 was also used in 1978 season, until the Lotus 79 becomes ready, taking 2 victories and 2 pole position. Also, one of the Lotus 78, was sold to Hector Rebaque, who get a remarkable 6th position (1 point) in the the 1978 German GP. So, after spending some nice time working with Classic Team Lotus, we’re happy to introduce the Fenix Classic Team Lotus 78
  3. As March does at that time... 761 and 240 share the same body parts... https://www.fenixracingshop.com/index.php?id_product=753&controller=product if you need a super cool looking wing stay... you'll find also this "Hewland including wing stay" 03 is more suited for the 240, while the 02 is for the 761 Nylon Pa12 powder printed
  4. Ta-Dah!!! The 240 is here! Currently a prototype... but not too far from production 2 wheel steering 4 drive 0 differential You can see more picture on our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/FenixRacing.it/ Video here https://www.facebook.com/FenixRacing.it/videos/1375841439236139/
  5. For those of you that like Classique... 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” 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. Body is fitting Tamiya F103, Tamiya F104 and fit most of the actual F1 1/10 line. Body appearance can be further enhanced by using our Classique aluminium air intakes. 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.
  6. Bodyshells are "in" and will be available soon in our web. I use it at the last ETS and it was a pleasant surprise as handled like a charm

  9. Oh yes... it was raining at the PanCar Master in Lostallo (Swiss track and probably the biggest facility we've in Europe, as they cover from 1/10 to 1/8 to 1/5....) full report soon on Fenix Fb page
  10. Full reportage from Historic Minardi Day in Imola https://www.facebook.com/pg/FenixRacing.it/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2254399911318717
  11. Lotus 49 will be out in about a month (in the pic the approved 49 next to the "normal" Fenix Classique. Plan is to go first over the 78 and then the 72 Plus, I'm trying to get all the necessary relations to go over different F1 teams.
  12. Thanks for the support. This job was done with the full support of Mr. Andy Gilberg, owner of Teknacon. He was so kind to scan his March 761B-2, which was the first 2-4-0 (the non-working press version) About the 240... is definitely the final target. Plan is to release our Fenix Classique with a special chassis with the rear 4 wheels. It will be as the original, 2 wheels steering, 4 wheel driving and 0 differential About the 70's bodies. We're having a deal with Classic Team Lotus to reproduce all the F1 handled by CTL. It's a big task and will take some year to be accomplished fully. Meanwhile plan is to get in touch with car owner/right owners to reproduce the F1 the most of us love. Best way to be informed about our releases is to follow our FB page https://www.facebook.com/FenixRacing.it/
  13. In Fenix Racing, we've been asked several time to do something for the 70's F1 fan. Really happy to share with you the first test of our new body: March 761 1976 Pretty happy with the resuls. Major role in this adventure has been played by real owner of 761 March (beside some other 1/1 toys) which scan his personal car... Body will fit F103 - F104 and our Fenix Classique as well
