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.

But unfortunately not suitable for modern scenerys... It has no HANS... But ok, thats nothing we couldnt fix!

Is it just me or does one of them look like Senna?
15. September 2014, 11:21

You're correct Holger. The driver represents Senna and the guy standing is obviously Ron Dennis (of McLaren).

Ahh, the glorious times of F-1! As the drivers where man and not pussys!
Remembers me of a quote Heinz-Harald Frentzen whos said: "In Monaco, i dont steer around corners, i let the car bounce around it!" LOL
15. September 2014, 11:52
Steve Wilson
Yep! it's Ayrton alright... yellow helmet, green stripes, although don't look very green on box...
I think it's a very iffy Mr Dennis, but I also think it's supposed to be him :S

@Holly. I don't want it for a modern scene, so no Hans etc isn't a problem...
I want it for my Ferrari F92AT or Ferrari 643, I'm thinking of doing one of them sitting in the pit garage waiting to go out on track, during qualifying. Just an idea at the moment, but it was cheap enough and I also knocked the guy down a bit with the price. I bought it for a GBP £5.00 seen it on eBay for £15.00 so I'm happy :)

I certainly agree with you Steve - 'tis a pity that I only found that fact out AFTER I opened the delivered box!!! Any idea where to go to get decals?
1. April 2014, 01:30
Steve Wilson
Well!!!... As you asked :)
I bought some decal paper and a rattle can spray of Car Plans clear coat off eBay.
I've photocopied the decals from the other A and B pit crew sets on to a sheet of the decal paper, I then gave the sheet a light coat of the clear, waited 15 minutes then gave it another coat of clear. I did that 4 or 5 times until I felt a good covering had been laid down. Treat it like an ordinary sheet of decals from here on... I've never done this for such a project before and I'm interested to see how it goes!!! I've only ever done the odd damaged decal before. I also intend to do some decals for the monitor screens as well, I'm in the process of looking for suitable images to use for this.
The whole thing is turning into a project build of its own, but should be satisfying to when finalized :D
1. April 2014, 06:30
Stefan Suessemilch
Ooops, thanks guys for the info about decals :)
1. April 2014, 06:41
Steve Wilson
Have you got this or are you getting it??? :)
1. April 2014, 07:13
Roger Trewenack
That DOES sound like another Project, Steve!!
I have some decal paper that I haven't tried using yet, so this could be a candidate.
I guess you need in advance to decide which team you're building for, and then tried to scan something from the web, although the F1 guys tend to be pretty touchy about their screens - certainly on the pit walk-thru's at the Australian GP, their gear tends to be turned off - it would probably be a lot easier to get shots of the "V8 Supercars" pit displays & substitute those - they're pretty advanced these days - so most spectators wouldn't know the diff.....apart from the "rivet counters"! I would imagine the British touring cars would be of similar technical detail?!?!?
1. April 2014, 12:18
Steve Wilson
Aaaaaahhh!!! Roger...
The joys of being a one team builder :D I don't have to pre-empt a choice of team!!!
As the kits were designed for the Ferreri team, as are the decals, is a nice bonus
I understand and I empathize for you though!!! :( ;)
I've been watching V8 Supercars on MOTORS TV UK.
I've really got into it, some exciting racing and tussles between drivers, great stuff 8)
1. April 2014, 13:08
Stefan Suessemilch
Steve, I thought about buying one. Wouldn't it be nice to build a dio showing a pitstop, pitwall etc? I think I could get some pics of the monitor screens from a video... anyway that will be a hell of a job... sometimes in the future ;)
1. April 2014, 13:48
Steve Wilson
Get the kit now while it's still available, believe me ;)
Any chance you could share the pics for monitors with me, please

Ah, the new box syndrome ! i often have that problem when it´s time fore primer. but once the parts are in primer and the boring part is over the new box syndrome seems to fade away. but it's better to put it aside for a little while instead of forcing yourself to build. i've tried that forcing method, it often just turnes out to be another model in a shelf. all the fun parts like the history around the car and all the research just disappears in the blue.

I have in the past, had as many as 5 kits on the go at the same time. But be sure to keep them separate and away from each other, it is mind blowing as well.

I currently have everything packed down in boxes due to a splendid idea that i should renovate my apartment and make room for a mancave, which i really don't have time to complete. but with all the talking about Villeneuve, 126´s and 312´s the twitch "i must build" syndrome is biting my neck. need to solve this problem at once ! i think i need to have my weekly dose of glue and paint fumes in the morning to function as a human being :/

Hi Guy...
I've posted some pictures, I admit not far, but I'm desperately trying to finish my Fujimi 248 Michaels Last Ferrari Drive and of course the Chris Amon 312...
I'm approaching this one in between the other two, don't want to rush it but the figures are coming along nicely, I'm doing the track it'll sit on at the moment... I'll get some more pics up soon, honoured you're watching :)

Hi Markus.
Here is an English translation. Hope you don't mind?:-
Now after the pit crew set A & B, I present the set C.
This set contains the command post on the pit wall and four figures.
Logically, the best you combine this set with the other two sets.
These are indeed due to the decals intended for the Ferrari F2007.
But now comes the rub. The set C has no decals.
No advertising for the characters, no label for the command post. Not even decals for the monitors there.
At first I could not believe it and thought that would have the decals in the Schchtel simply forgotten.
But a quick search on the Internet revealed that accompany really no decals.
For me, unfortunately, totally incomprehensible and a big minus.
On the kit itself gibts nothing to complain about.
Fujimi provides 11 branches cast with lots of parts. All branches are gray Plastk.
The parts are cast clean and error free.
This then gives another instruction.
Nice complement for a 1:20 diorama boxes
- No decals
But that is not nice, at least a few of the general sponsors would be able to settle. What a pity!

Hmm, looks like as if one of your Ferrari's will find its way into a dio, Steve? You make me curious!
2. March 2013, 11:08
Steve Wilson
Yes Frank!!! Thanks for interest... I have a few ideas but it's basically based on a Gilles Villeneuve tribute. I was very fond of Gilles, he was not of, unfortunately, Championship material. But he was the greatest daredevil, truegrit, never give up at all costs, racers I have ever seen driving in Formula 1. His downfall was not being able to slowdown when his car was having problems and also not being able of thinking strategically. But damn he was exciting to watch, edge of the seat stuff. So I'm playing with ideas, doing some drawings, looking at loads of pics on the internet. Will update if interested
