Pierre Scerri


I'm surfing the Internet for 10 years... Being fond of R/C modeling, and more generally of D.I.Y stuff, I've seen web pages about more or less skilled handymen. Sometimes, you even find a higly skilled one, doing great job...

But, here, this is nothing but exceptional.

This no more a hobby or a passion (unless in the etymological sense) : Pierre Scerri builds 1/3 scaled replicas of Sport-Proto Ferrari.

But this is not only about building nice models... No, he is building EVERYTHING in 1/3 scale, and everything is functional! Obviously the engine (flat 12 cylinders), but the gearbox, headlights, gauges!
He didn't konw where to find the corresponding tires : easy, he learned the building process of real ones and creates a mould!
Headlight? He learned about glass working and make his owns...
He builds absolutely everything : the crankshaft, the 4 camshafts, the injection system, radiators, engine case, cylinders heads...
Do not miss the videos...

12 years of work were necessary to make the Ferrari 312PB 1978, from which 3 years only to draw the plans and schemas. Such a level of perfection is almost scary to me...
And you know what? This guy is French! Sorry, you american visitor, we did better than your scaled V8...

Congratulations M.Scerri, it will be highly difficult to do better than you now. I still can't even believe it myself...
