  1. I used to wander round the pitlanes when I was a teenager in the 70s, and I can confirm that the new tyres had a very prominent seam in the middle. I have 3 Tamiya 1/12 F1 kits that I bought back then and haven't finished yet, and at first I was horrified by the seams - but when I checked against the real thing I was reassured. The thing I wasn't reassured about was how bad the finish was back then - both then and now I did car bodywork, and even as a 17-year-old in 1975 I could have bettered the finish on most of the F1 cars I saw. But I guess they didn't spend too much money on the bodywork, as it had a very short life expectancy!
