bossy122 The decal instructions called for RAL 5002 blue that, apparently, Revell makes but they don't bother to ship it to the States, so I had to go with the closest looking TS which I thought was TS51. I ordered a can of Tamiyas new TS93 Pure Blue but it looks lie a glossier version of TS15. Managed to smudge the bonnet but thankfully, a decal will cover that up so no touch ups required ( hurray!)

bossy122 I would HIGHLY recommend getting after market decals. I may have to go back and retry this kit with different decals...along with any future Hasegawa kits I build. But I do appreciate the appreciation, thanks!
22. February at 01:03:27
Kees Kleijwegt I have the 787b as a project (the Le Mans winner) Aftermarket decals are essential for the project, because I will build it from this kit
But thanks for the tip anyway!
22. February at 07:01:57
bossy122 Tamiya uses Cartograph so those shouldn't be as bad. Hasegawa doesn't appear to use Cartograph and it shows. Having said that, I have their Charge 787B and I have Shunko decals for it ( just in case ; ) )

bossy122 Interesting that the kit instructions call for the wheels to be black with chrome rims but every pic I could find had gold wheels with chrome rims, so...Spaz chrome looks good, huh?
24. February at 08:20:39
bossy122 All done. Wrestled the pain in the ass glass bits into place, and done. Get some better pics of it when I have more light available. Now I can move on to something else!
01. March at 04:15:29
Martin Oostrom Fantastic result. Very striking colours. Definitely worth the wait
01. March at 07:33:21
bossy122 Thank you. It's funny, i thought the hard part would be masking and painting but that was a breeze. Assembling the few pieces together was a whole other story.

bossy122 Joining this one already in progress......I pull this one out of storage every now and again to see if I can get anywhere with it. I had to tear apart the gearbox et al as they were a crooked mess. I think I have it level now but the ass end still won't look too good. What I'm after is the chrome wings on the darker red Ferrari. Early on, Ferrari appeared to experiment with carbon fiber wings in practices but would fall back to the good ol reliable aluminum wings for the races ( best example would be Monaco of '83).
So i'll give this one another try.....fingers crossed.

bossy122 Thanks. getting the harnesses out of the way is always nice.

Alexander G. Suspension looks great!
19. September 2017 at 11:17:35
bossy122 Thanks. Funny thing was that I put base part to the brakes on backwards which matched the picture in the instructions. I thought that camber seemed a bit extreme.
19. September 2017 at 20:14:03
bossy122 The 19 Jan '18 episode of The Grand Tour had an interesting and funny little history about the 1983 rivalry between Lancia and Audi and got my juices flowing for this project again. Thanks, Jezza.

Marco Gallmann What a beauty! Well done so far.
22. January at 19:39:12
bossy122 All done! Finished off with Studio 27s photo etch set. There's a PE V and X on the grille, the grilles ( 5 or 6), PE wiper blades and mirror supports. It had 2 braces on the front blinkers but one came off and into oblivion....along with one of the PE mud flaps ( the ONE thing I bought the whole set for and wound up having to cut out my own anyway). But the PE stencil came out a lot better than i'd hoped. Now if I could just get up enough courage to work on the 1 12 scale 037.....
07. February at 02:20:20
Timothy Heimer Still looks great! Nice work!
07. February at 04:16:27
bossy122 Thanks. Pretty fun kit, the decals could be a little redder, but I liked it.

bossy122 Start by polishing up the bright stuff while the resin parts soak..
24. July 2017 at 21:16:53
Steve Wilson I'll follow your build on this one... ;)
24. July 2017 at 21:52:23
Alexander G. Wait, how and what did you do there. Are these parts real metal?
24. July 2017 at 22:53:44
bossy122 White metal. Start sanding ( i prefer Tamiya sand papers) 180 grit, 240, 400, 600, 1000, 1200, 1500 and 2000. Then i use these polishing pads i inherited, 3200 up to 24000. I've tried also using polishing compound but i didn't see a significant difference to the's the 24000 and the 18000 that really kick in the shine.
The real problem comes with deep pitting in some of the pieces, then you have to really work at it with the 180.
25. July 2017 at 00:01:32
bossy122 Oh, that flat 12 is for the Hasegawa 312T.....get everything jumbled up.
25. July 2017 at 01:24:42
Alexander G. Thanks for the explanation! Definitely following...
25. July 2017 at 01:38:12
bossy122 Thanks to more clever engineering, I have to go back and trim this crap to fit.....WHY?!
03. January at 03:53:26
Tom Sanders I have found that the fingernail files and buffers from Tropical Shine can be very effective in transforming a bland white metal (Zymac?) component to a chrome-like shine (if required). 180 grit to prep the surfaces and remove some flashing (black), then 220/320 grit (blue), then the "quad" to polish the surface (blue/pink/white/gray). I then will use Mothers Aluminum polish on my Fordom with a buffing wheel. I then finish by cleaning the residues with Nevr-Dull then spraying with alcohol and wipe clean. Now the parts may be buffed to whatever degree finish your application requires. I recommend coating with a clear lacquer to maintain the shine. The Tropical Shine buffers can be washed and dried for further use but to degrade over multiple uses. I cut these to fit narrow locations using heavy duty shears.

Note that the Tropical Shine buffers can be used in the same sequence to polish wood and even clear plastic. I use a similar process to create polished Plexiglas canopy plugs for Allyn P-51 Chrome desk models. This can be helpful when someone is restoring and old plastic model with vintage "glue smears" on the clear part surfaces. You can see a polished canopy "plug" by googling SANDMAN OVERHAUL and linking on Images.

bossy122 Minor progress. If I were to believe the instructions, the upper arms of the front suspension would be on upside down. Thankfully, I have 2 very large refs of the T5 on the wall to get it correct.
01. January at 03:13:48
Mike Very nice! Who's driving your version? Gilles or Jody?
01. January at 03:44:01
bossy122 Gilles, of course!
01. January at 03:53:56
Mike Good call! ;)
01. January at 04:00:21
bossy122 Someday, I will have all of Gilles' cars done. So far I have done the M23, 312T3, 312T4, 126CK (early) and a 126C2. This T5 and an S27 T2 to go.
01. January at 04:45:27
Mike I had completed the Tamiya 312T3 (not clear as it came in the kit) but after a divorce and moving out, I think it ended up as yard sale fodder....along with the other 40 or so built-ups that I left behind. Oh well, time to start building them again. Good luck on your quest.
01. January at 04:54:10
bossy122 It's the T2 and T5's that are incredibly difficult to find, so your treasure hunt begins anew.
01. January at 06:25:10
bossy122 Why? Why are these two pieces longer than they need be? I thought maybe they fit the Monaco version, but it's the same! Why?

Mike Wow...very nice, bossy....what did you use for paint?
01. January at 04:16:08
bossy122 That would be Tamiyas TS15 blue and TS16 yellow. There's another FW12 around here somewhere and that one got Tamiya X4 blue and X8 yellow. Problem is that the X paints wash off with Microsol, which is why this one got the rattle cans.
01. January at 04:41:45
Mike I have the Tamiya FW11 waiting in my stash and wanted to make sure I could find the right paint first. I can order them from the US but by the time the shipping is added and with the conversion to CDN$, it ends up being about $15.00 for a 1oz bottle. A little more than I wanted to pay.
01. January at 05:02:04
bossy122 If they're less than ____ paints, you never know what you'll get. I've seen stunning results from other modelers but I have had nothing but troubles with them....I think it may be an atmosphere problem, but I cannot get them go on without some issue. I have an 11 and a 11B in the stash and i'll use the 15 and 16 again.
