Tamiya 1:12 Brabham BT44b


Recommended Posts

Been a member here for some time but never posted before. That is about to change since I have just started a 1:12 Matra MS11.

In the meantime here is my completed Brabham BT44b, complete with 'race worn' tyres. I put quite a lot of scratch built/made extra detail into it too.

Incredible detailing job on this build. The brake lines and IP and chassis electrical wiring must have taken many extra hours of build time. So much eye candy to look at! Overall a masterpiece!

I love the big air box F1 cars of the mid-70’s. I’ve built a few of the 1/20 Tamiya and Ebbro kits in my stash and am trying to add more detail with each kit but no where near the level of your Brabham. Thanks for posting and please share more of your builds here.

I went back and looked over the photos again....so much great work!!!!

Also trigger the thought that at a glance you could tell one car from another. No mistaking a Brabham for a Lotus!!!!!

Today I can't spot one from anohter......gone are the days of individuality.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys, I really did all the research and the build of this one.

Now Shay, me Owld Leprachaun, to answer your question............. yes I will be detailing the Matra in the same way.
