The Eagle first appeared in F1 racing at the 1966 Belgian Grand Prix. The Weslake engine appeared in the car at the 1966 Italian GP. The chassis was of the “cigar tube” type, constructed from 90% aluminum alloy, with steel reinforcement. As the car was developed, titanium replaced steel for these reinforcement, and thanks to the lightweight achieved the 104 became the winning chassis with Gurney at the wheel. Besides the weight other changes were done on the car but these will be commented later in the article.


The kit is the usual multimedia MFH offer, plenty of white metal parts which I detailed as much as I could. The goal of this article is sharing with the reader the work done plenty of pictures. I’m sorry if the pictures aren’t the best but this kit requested a lot of attention and and steps and taking pictures was a hard job inside the building itself.


I began with the bodywork, so while the paint dried, I could go on with the other pieces.
Body and cockpit-cowling, polished and riveted:


After riveting the cockpit-cowling I realized (too late) that the double upper lines (green arrows in the below picture) did not exist on the real car: so I sanded them.


The whole body was painted with Zero Paint, then decaled and painted with a few clear coats.
