Heller 1/43 Williams F 1

Recommended Posts

I bought 3 of these little kits on ebay awhile back and this is the second one I have built. Simple kits with only about 22 or so pieces. They can be a challenge to decal however. ( at least for me ) I really like them and think they build up pretty good. I noticed I did not fix the roll bar paint before taking the pics but it is fixed now. Last photo taken with the first one I built.

Very nice work, Ray. But you really should have sanded the tire contact areas to make them look like they've actually touched asphalt.

I have built one of these and have a few more in the stash. They are neat little kits and look the part when completed. If I remember correctly, the tires on mine were a little funky. I really like how yours have turned out. You have done a very nice job on them!

Job well done Ray, I take my hat off to anyone who can apply decals on something that small!

Thanks guys. Harry is right, I did miss that detail. I have one kit left and maybe I can get that one right. Third times the charm right ? : )

Being open wheel it wouldn't be to hard to fix up if you really wanted to.

I like them though. They look good.

Nice Work!!!!! I have some BBR kits and still not brave enough to do them. Small parts count but do not let that fool you. This scale is very hard to do. Very nice job! Man I love your builds!


P.S. Show off that Ferrari!

Great looking build Ray! I wouldn't have the nerves to try something that small.

As for the tires, just tell people it was a rainy day at the track! :D

Both models look great! I actually picked up a McLaren MP4/4 not too long ago to go with my tamiya kit
