Awesome build. I’ve been wanting to try a Tamiya 1/20 kit. Looks like a lot of fun to build! Did you use sand paper to detail those disc brakes?

Great job on this, one of the cleanest F1 designs. Would love to see this with its clothes on as well.

Jason, this is an excellent kit, I just finished it a few months ago. It was also my first 1/20 F1. (I think this car is occasionally referred to as a Ferrari 640). Beware the rear suspension, quite delicate but looks accurate. 

Mark has obviously put in a tremendous amount of time with the superdetailing, but this Tamiya kit builds up very nicely box-stock as well.

Excellent detail work. The tire markings are a nice touch.

Thanks guys appreciate the feedback.

Jason, no sandpaper its gun metal overlayed with a matt clear coat. Same with all the carbon cleared with matt, I find it pulls it in and gives it a more consistent finish plus it reduces any risk of the decals drying out overtime.
