hello everyone

I could really do with some assistance.

I am attempting to model in 1/43 scale a March 731. The only kit available is a rather poor one from an Italian company.
Using it as a basis, I am having to scratch build the suspension components as the kit is all wrong. Trouble is achive material is rare, even the photos in Forix do not help much.

Does anyone have any photos of the 731 showing clearly the rear suspension and rear wing layout?
In usual March fashion, I suspect the suspension layout is much the same on the 721G and 741, so perhaps photos of these would be acceptable.

I would be very grateful for any assistance :up:

I've had a look round my regular sources, and it must be annoying for you because the 'famous' March styling does tend to obscure the suspension...

Anyway, this is the best I can come up with for now :

Don't know if that's much use, though...

If he is, there are plenty of pics here, though he's probably found that one too :) And anyway, even that kit couldn't make a worse job of the 731's suspension than March themselves did :(

How did you guess?

That is exactly what I am attempting to do.

Marchives have been very helpful up to now and I am waiting for more info from them

I have trolled the net and believe I have 'aquired' all the is to aquire. so it looks like the only way forward is from private collections.

Sutton Images have been great. I Now have 4 photos from them that arrived on Monday

:up: :clap:
