Be careful...waring...this is an F1 model

Recommended Posts

Gentleman, I am truly overwhelmed by all of the positive responses to my build....thanks, I appreciate it, and I appreciate how many of you guys like F1 cars. I really didn't realize that.

Smokey, I was admiring your Fiat dragster at NNL East a few weeks ago, that car really stood out...really sharp looking build, very unique use of the scoop.

Kane, the photo-etched kit was made by Hasegawa, but it is a separate purchase. I ordered the car and photo-etch together from HLJ.com. I certainly would recommend the photo-etch to anyone looking to build this kit, if just for the turned intake trumpets and mesh air filters over each.

Overall, I was very impressed with Hasegawa's move into Tamiya's wheelhouse. They "out" Tamiya'ed Tamiya. I love customs and rods, but every now and then I really enjoy these great old classic F1 cars. Again, thanks for the kind words. :D

very, very nice job on Niki's car

Just love how Hasegawa and Fujimi have jumped in and expanded choices for us that enjoy building F1 models

I sure love F-1 and enjoyed the burning eyes as I looked at your build :D I have a Tamiya Type 79 in my stash pile waiting for my other projects to get done (2 planes and a ship) I have the P/E for this kit and look forward to building it. Was there any issues with the kit as it went together?

I love F1 especially Ferrari. Here is the F-189 I'm working on. It's the 1/24 Hasegawa kit with a scratchbuilt engine bloch and heads and modified chassis.



Yours looks really cool I hope mine turns out as well.
