Benetton B188

Recommended Posts

Benetton ford b188. Painted with tamiya paints with a urethane clear. Painted all the colors then cleared. Now putting on decals, then reclear. A lot of masking. Not a f1 winner but a very colorful car.

Beautiful and famous car. Gerhard Berger used to pilot it. I was lucky enough to actually sit in it as teenager, at the Geneva Auto Salon back in the early '90s. 

Paint looks excellent. 

Would love to see it finished.

Sorry to say, but you are wrong.  The B188 is the 1988 car, Gerhard Berger raced for Ferrari since 1987. In 1986 he raced for Benetton in the B186 car. He won the Mexican Grand Prix in it, his first career win.

I stand corrected. You are absolutely right about Berger. I am pretty sure however that the car I sat in was this B188. It was either 1990 or ‘91 when it happened. I used to have a photo somewhere, which is long gone probably.

Great looking paint............. built that car many, many years ago, and yes, I still recall that the masking for the paint was tedious.

n.p., Austrian petrolheads have to know such things by heart, otherwise they are expatriated ;)

Thank you guys! Well disaster on the decal! Need to find a new set. The old tamiya decals really are bad. Soo a shelved model until I find new decals. Indy cals do not have them so it’s going to be a adventure finding them. Any help finding new ones would be greatly appreciated.
