Just completed this Fujimi 1/20  Formula One car. It is the Sauber C30 from the 2011 season. Car was driven by Kamui Kobayashi  (16) and Sergio Perez (17).  It used a Ferrari engine and thier KERS system. Colors are Tamiya TS-26 whit e and TS14 bolack. Gunze #85 red was used for the front wing and to match the stripe. Kit is mostly stock with the exception of some seatbelt decals out of the scrapbox.  See the captions for extra info and thanks for looking. 


Black was airbrushed and was a real challenge to get it positioned correctly and come to a sharp point.



Some adjustments had to be made to accomodate the rear wing but once done it fit nice and snug. 


Front wing was the hardest part. It was 15 separate pieces and twice as many decals. 


Don't usually take a picture from this angle but I think it shows off the lines of the car quite well.

Really nice build of an unusual car, Rich.  That's a pretty complex livery and you pulled it off very nicely.

Thank you, Larry, I enjoy a good challenge and this certainly fit the bill.

Beautiful as always Rich.  I'm always impressed by your builds.  Sometimes you make me want to hang up my airbrush and never touch it again!

 Don't do that, Brett. You have too many more models to build and might need it.
