Ferrari 2002 - Rubins Barrichello's ride in 1/12th scale

Recommended Posts

I had a gentleman send me this kit to build for him.

My first adventure into the world of Revell's 1/12th scale models.

The body comes pre-painted, but that would not last long. The body sections in the kit do not match the real car. This involved stripping the paint and join the body panels, fill the seams and primer the whole thing.

Luckily the cockpit fit in the body after painting. Also the rear engine bonnet did not fit very well. It took a little bit of filing and fitting to get it close to fit properly. 

The faint of heart will best advised to stay clear of this kit.

Please note the Marlboro decals and seat belts are aftermarket items.

Here are photos of the kit and the finished model.

Thanx for lookin'...

Superb job....I love it!!!

Paint, decals everything is spot on

Have quite a few F1 kits and learned as a teen that Tamiya and now Fujimi are the best engineered IMHO

Looking great Curt! I assume you already sent it back to the owner, so we won't see it at the NNL show in March.  If you remember, I built one a few years back when the kit first came out.  A nice kit despite some shortcomings, and it is still sitting proudly in one of the display cases at home!!
