Chaparral 1 from a Maserati birdcage

This is one of most challenging modifications I have done.
It was not easy to get a Chaparral 1 in 1/43 and the ones that are for sale are expensive. So I decided to buy a “Minichamps” Maserati birdcage and convert my old Maserati birdcage from “Projetto K” into a Chaparral 1.

The following photo sequence depicts how it was built.

The final result is a 1962 Road America 500; #4; Team: Chaparral Cars Inc. with J. Hall and H. Sharp; 1st overall
