TAMIYA 1/20 F189 Portuguese G.P. (Late version)


Recommended Posts

 

Hello,

I completed the F189, a Ferrari F1 car of the era that had a V12 engine.

(The sound of the engine at this time was awesome.)

Even though it was a Tamya kit, it was difficult to fit the upper and lower cowls.

Except for that part, I had a lot of fun working on it.

 

The line of this car is so cool, and Italian Red's Ferrari is always beautiful, whether it's a real car or a model car.

The decals in the kit were old and unusable, so I used decals released by MSM.

You can check the revised and added parts through the video. 

I hope you like it. Thank you. :)

Well done :) 

The upper and lower panel fit is a known issue on these kits, but you seem to have made a better job than most I've seen (including mine) in disguising the fact

 

Nice paint job and photography as well

 

Ian :)

That join between the upper and lower halves is well known as a problem area with this kit. I have to say that yours look sooooo much better than the one I build back in the day - good job.

The upper and lower panel fit issue..

I also spent a lot of time trying to fix this problem.

It might be an easier option to buy two kits and make one close and one open. 😅

 

Anyway, magnets have been quite helpful in solving this problem.

 

Thank you,  Spiny

Thank you.  Redstaff

Clean meticulous paint & build and fabulous photography. I love “exploded view” studio shot in particular.

 

It is often helpful to make final checks by arranging the parts for the last picture.
Thank you. nearsightedjohn. :)

Super model and great photography, how do you keep it so dust free?!

Good tip on the magnets, I must get some.

There is no particular way. I often ventilate before painting. 

Thank you. :)

Beautiful! I believe I actually have one of these, but I believe the decals are gone. 

Most of the decals in this old kit must have gone.
I also used MSM's Decal.
Thank you. :)
