      Use the photobucket.com
      Website or phone app.

      You just upload pics to photo bucket and paste the IMG links they provide you into your reply here

      I can see the two links to pics in your first post , car looks great ! Aluminum body ?

        Thanks Cutlass, I couldnt figure out if the pics would upload here or if I need photobucket.

        Yes the car is alloy bodied, Im very happy with it so far.

          Hi Dave,

          As Cutlass already mentioned, use Photobucket. They have both an app for your phone and a website you can work with and it is free.

          Your 750 Monza looks great. I love the Alum body.

            would love to see how you got to this point and continued progress. I love seeing old ferrari replicas here, hope to be posting mine soon. If you put your links in the IMG code your photos will be embedded in your post like this

              Welcome Dave, fill us in on your build. Did you make the body panels, chassis ? What are you using for suspension? etc. What engine? We are a bunch of gearheads here and we soak up that kinda stuff, Best -Vinny

                Hi Guys,
                Now I think i have a handle on how to post, here is info on the Monza
                I built the chassis from a jig drawing taken from an original, so as far as is practical I have built the chassis to original specs.
                One thing I did get wrong was the cross section of the oval tubes the Monzas, and indeed almost all Ferrari chassis, used.

                I copied the exact rivet distances, because, luckily, I have access to an original Monza for comparisons
                I also had the correct shade of Gray paint mixed locally. Apparently it is surplus Italian navy paint, and it wasn't difficult to get the correct paint standard and have it matched.

                  Yes, the engine is a 2l Alfetta, which approximates a Mondial engine nicely. I havent tuned it, the car will only weigh 700 KGs approx, however i did cast up Ferrari cam covers for it.
