This is the Tamiya kit of the French racing icon. I decided to do a version that is on the pictures in the manual but that version can´t be
made out of the kit parts ?!
This version of the car was used only during the practice for the British GP-68. The car had a much smaller rear wing than usual. So it had to be
scratched and also the oilcooler with it´s support mounted on top of the gearbox is scratched, the manual says it shall be placed on top of the oiltank but that is wrong. I had very good help for this conversion from the ModelFactory Hiro manual for theirs 1:20 kit.
I used several etched parts , rivets, alutubes, valves , switches and hosebands. The body paint is from Tamiyas spraycan TS11.
There is a WIP on another forum: http://www.f1m.com/f...hp?f=29&t=18732
