Well, I'm back into scale models for the first time in 15 years and I've found it very meditative to sit in a quiet space and slowly work through the pieces and painting - a nice break from a busy work and family life. I had an idea to do a scale model history of Formula 1 in 1:20 scale as there are so many models available to cover the history of engineering and design. I've started with the Tamiya RA272 as I got it for a good price and seemed like it would be a good place to start. Built pretty much out of the box and sprayed with a custom mix for the racing white and then topcoated with Tamiya X22 clear. I want to improve my skills and finished models so please feel free to comment on any tips/tricks/suggestions that you think might help.
Evening all. Welcome to my little corner of BritModeller; long time viewer, first time post(er). So... My MP4/4. I had previously built the MP4/23 that Degostini had released which went okay but was pretty giddy about this release. For anyone that loves F1, I think a part of us were all a fan of Senna and to be able to build this iconic machine was a must. Juggling a young family and starting design business meant I had the luxury of having ALL the pieces arrive month by month and no time to build it... Until now... Mwah ha ha! So, enough of the waffle, on to my attempt to build this 1:8th scale monster!
