THE SCREWS

During our build of the 1:8 scale Ferrari LaFerrari partwork model, we will use many types of screws. They vary in type and size, but are all Phillips-head and appear to be metric. Each screw is designated with a ‘Type’, such as A, B, C, AA, BB, CC, etc.

Using a set of precision calipers, I measured all of the screws that were included in the first stages. I thought I could share the information I collected, so I created this page to share it. The tables below contain all of the screw measurements I have seen so far.

Please note that these values are based on my own observations, so they may not be perfect (use at your own risk):
