Tamiya 1/20 Ferrari SF70H

Recommended Posts

Another one off the bench recently.  I usually build aircraft, but got very involved in open wheel racing in college and have remained a fan of Formula 1 and supercars.  This car at least still has wings! and is the first F1 model I've done.  It is build out-of-the-box and finished using Tamiya paints for the colors and Gravity Paints 2k clear coat.  The 2k clear coat involves a fair bit of safety prep with a respirator, spray booth venting outside, and closing the room off from the rest of the house.  However, with that said, I'm very glad to have added this tool. It will be fantastic for other race cars and aircraft like the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds.  It is an unbeatable clear. 

 

As always, any comments or critiques are welcome!

Other than the left rear wheel needing a camber change to match the right, very well done, indeed.  The nose aero makes me want to talk with the designers.

Fair point, I hadn't noticed that.  I'll have to check the actual model.  In typical Tamiya quality, the locating pins are pretty solid and clear, so I wonder if the rubber sidewalls on the tires have deformed a bit and just need to be reseated on the wheel.

Nice finish! I would have chosen to build Kimi's car too. :cheers:

Are all the carbon decals from the box? They look great.

Did you overcoat them with smoke?
