Fast Canis Lupus...1/20 Wolf WR 1 1977

Recommended Posts

After some pause, my dad started another F1 car. this time a Wolf WR1 from the British-Canadian team, owned by the Austrian-Canadian Walter Wolf.

It´s the 2010 kit edition, including decals by Cartograf, PE and metal parts.

One of my all-time favorite F1 cars, I have fond memories of watching Jody swapping the lead with Mario and Niki in Long Beach in ‘77 (47 years ago!!!! OMG I’m old!!!!). Jody placed 3rd but brilliant drives by all three.

When I built my 2010 kit with the box Cartograph decals, they suffered cracking, hopefully this won’t happen to you. I ended up getting replacements from IndyCals. Looking forward to watching your progress.

slowly but steady gaining shape

in some areas the kit shows its age, especially with the small parts where the molding halves are slightly shifted

decals didn´t work out as wished

just didn´t lay down smooth although using several setting solutions

ended up sanding them smoother and overpainting with Gunze H9 Gold

the nose turned out good, but on the rest of the gold areas the surface isn´t that smooth and a bit grainy....

aint job done and decals on

although printed by Cartograf, they didn´t work as used to, had some more problems on the rear wing sides with some raised detail, some paint touch ups done, but the gold paint doesn´t match the decals exactly...

also added some wiring/tubing to the rear
