Watching this, great stuff... Nice work so far Guy.

Well, there is one thing which bothers me... if you look at the reference pic you'll notice that the front radiator opening is perfectly oval, while the model shows a more asymetric shape, oval at the top but with quite sharp corners at the bottom. Correcting this however would lead me too far from what I want to achieve here, and that is to make a decent 1:43 model of a Ferrari 500 F2. If I want to build a perectly shaped model, I'd better buy me a more recent kit, because this Tron kit is at least 25 years old... So for this WIP-thread I'll concentrate on the build itself, if you guys don't mind ;)

Well Guy, that's what I call perfectionism :) I just want to see any build out of your hands ;)

Hi Guy.
At that time Ferrari used different configurations of bodywork on basically the same car, one theory as to why, was it was easier for the Team to recognize a drivers position in a race. You could tell from quite a distance who's car was coming towards you, if they have different shaped Radiator openings. Here are two Ferrari 500 F2's showing two different openings:

I also now notice.
Image one I posted, is the car in your first picture Chassis 5.
My other pic, the car is Chassis 0188F.

Oh, but that's a whole different ballgame! I thought that the model sculptor did a poor job, but the configuration I have in my kit actually existed as well! So that means I will be forced to do a conversion from the '0188F' chassis configuration to the 'chassis 5' configuration, especially since the Tron kit only has 1 single decal option: the 1953 Silverstone GP winner! So I just have to find a way to shape the oval shaped radiator opening...

Guy.
If it's any consolation, if any one can do, it you can!!!
Plenty of filler, sanding, patience and copious cups of Tea, a pinch of swearing, you now have a recipe to do it, good luck Guy :) :) :)

It worked out quite well I think ;)

Wow!!! Guy.
Top notch I did say if anyone can do it you can and you certainly did :)

Guido, making it thinner would increase the risk of breaking easily. So i chose a compromise solution...

Also Guido.
Guy can always give it the illusion of being thinner, by painting the inside of the opening a darker red as shading, making body work appear thinner. 1:43 is the ideal scale to get away with it...

I found some time to continue building the Ferrari...

By the way Guy, I tried to find something about the green/blue wheels... unfortunately without success. There's a lot to find about that special Grand Prix but nothing explicit about the wheels. :S Great job so far Guy... as always

Brilliant Guy.
The choice of black on the exhaust is excellent, little details like that really make a model stand out... 8)
I still can't find that reference to the wheels, but I'm still looking...

Hi Guy,
it`s every time an absolutely pleasure to examine your models!!!
Each time I am encouraged to build an F1 model... I swear to you, this year I must meet you in Mol!! Wanna see some of your 1:20 F 1 machines in real!!
I explored last days the weppage Modelers Site! And I was really surprised to see some several articles from you there.
I will think about to order your building article about the Ebbro Lotus 72E !!! But about 8 British Pounds for one pdf is not cheap.. :) :) :)
Nevertheless there are a lot of fantastic articles!
