One of the best kits of Matchbox. Very nice result!
Great result! 🙂
Yes, the quality of the Hobbycraft line was spotty. I've had some REAL dogs, and some brilliant kits. This one, and the DHC-3 Otter were both a pleasure to build. Lots of crisp surface detail, fit was very good, instructions good, and the decal quality excellent.
Very nice work Dave!
Great job Dave!
Nice one, I love that livery 👍
Super! I wrote it to my list.

Cool! I am always afraid when it comes to assemble such frameworks. Congrats!

Well done Dave!
Very interesting race car! Thanks for showing!
Yap and top notch results!
Love your vintage F1 collection👍
This is the first F1 model I ever built (back in 1980). It was the start of my F1 collection. Just took these pics today.
That is why it looks so authentice raced 🙂
Of course you improved your skills by miles but i like the Result and i know this old Kit well.

i have this one to do.... yours looks great !!!
I may have to re-do the F189s. The colour doesn't match all my other Ferraris, after I found a nice 'Italian Red' from the Testors Scalemaster enamel paint line. This colour is just a little darker and more burgundy shade than the other cars.
Sponsored by Tamiya!
Yeah - it was a vritual guarantee that we'd get an F1 model kit as a result...
These race cars you just posted are great. It's like the Indy 500... well ok f1. I like how you weather them. Super realistic.

Sorry Cuajete, my mistake, not your English; I originally posted the pics on Facebook. The next day, I posted here. I thought that your comment was referring to the previously posted production pics. It took me a day to remove the mask and re-shoot the pic. By then I'd forgotten your message here, or I probably would have made the connection.
Wonderful delta collection! Congrats Dave!
No problem, Dave😉
Lovely collection Dave. 👍
Calling this one finished. Of the three Mirages, I found this one the most rewarding to do. Not as colourful as the 20th Ann. bird, or as striking as the Tiger Meet 2005. But, it had a reasonably challenging paint scheme, and a very challenging decal application with all those yellow stripes. So I like all three, but for different reasons: the colour scheme on bird #1; the striking Tiger Meet scheme on bird #2, and the challenge of painting/decalling bird #3.
very, very cool...this must have been fun!

Looks Great the B195.
How is the Quality of the Kit?
Kit was OK ( a few minor fit issues); Decals were crap. I had trouble fitting the large yellow Bitburger logo on the body, over the compound curve; Plus, you weren't provided with enough white stripe to go around the nose. I had to mask and paint that. Been a while since i Built this, but as I recall, I masked and painted the entire white stripe between the dark and light blue stripe, as well as the light blue stripe
Thank you for your Infos..
Hi, about to start this one, just curious what paint colours did you use? very ambiguous in the instructions 🙂
I was using Testors Modelmaster enamels at the time. Testors has since discontinued their range of Modelmaster enamel. I picked up the closest blues I could find, and then mixed various colours in to get the best match with the decal sheet that I could. Sorry I can't be much more help.
me my vs is ligier js41....soon

Built the Tamiya SF70H after doing a string of Fujimi Ferraris (2006, 2007, 2010, 2011 & 2013), and I am again impressed with how well engineered the Tamiya kits are by comparison.I struggled with warping when attaching the body to the chassis on ALL of the Fujimi kits. Not so with the Tamiya. The body fit over the engine and onto the chassis perfectly; all seams lined up, AND, the body was secured to the chassis with 5 tiny screws!

The super shiny finish is spot on. 👍 But do you think you could open up the exhaust pipes just a tad to make it even more convincing.
