Villeneuve's '81 126 Ferrari


Recommended Posts

Marching forth with more Ferraris. Here we have the 1/43rd Hi-Fi Automodelli kit of the 1981 Ferrari 126 depicting the car Villeneuve raced at Monaco that year.

Built box stock with addition of a photoetch Tameo racing harness. Tamiya acrylics & lacquers with PPG urethane clear for paint.

Kit built without problems and looks OK in the end, though it's probably one of my less favorite F-1 Ferraris from any era.

I think it looks rather better than 'OK'...!! Lovely finish again, and I think the car itself looks better than any modern Ferrari!

 

Can I ask how you get that excellent surface texture on the slicks?

 

Cracking job again!

Pure luck. They literally came out of the box that way. Hard as rocks too, but some time with a mug of hot water and a microwave combined with rims that fortunately fit lead to them working out.
