Impressive work. That would be a nice Christmas present to put under the tree yourself.

The "C" tree is the same for all 1/12 Tamiya F1 with the V8 Cosworth engine, with the exception of the Lotus 49 and 49B.

after countless hours in my workshop, I could finally finish the production of a very limited number of the 1:8 kits. The lucky enthusiasts will be rewarded with 1.800 parts and hopefully with a lot of fun when building this ultimate kit.

Questions • Tamiya Lotus 72 and Tyrrell 003 have the same engine sprue?

F1M Forums - Mon, 12/05/2022 - 05:30
I have an incomplete Lotus 72 and a Tyrrell 003 for parts. Need to know if the engine parts of the Tyrrell are exactly the same than the 72 as I know that Tamiya have done different versions of the Cosworth engine.

If not, I'm looking for a Lotus 72 partially assembled for a good price, better in Europe to save customs fees

Thank you!!

Searching for fonts used in sponsor logos is labour intensive and hardly ever results in finding exact match.
What i do: i look for font that comes close, and alter it in a vector drawing programme like illustrator, coreldraw or even photoshop.

A good start seems to be': bernard MT condensed. If not on your pc, you'll need to download font and install in font folder of your pc.
Individual characters need to be widened a bit, the 'openings' in char 'O' need to be made a little more oval.

If you can't find minimal match: completely draw font in vector environment

Problem with these "old" logos is that they are probably handmade. But there are lots of free "online"tools out there that will search fonts for you. But I fear you will need a bigger/better image for the software to work properly.

Sorry to hear. So many great drivers including Patrick and great cars in 1982 and 1983 but still no driver championship. Real bad luck.

Wow! What a sad news
One of my favorites. I always thought he should have won the 1983 title. Even the 82 one
I reckon he had really poor health lately.
Race in peace Patrick!

Sad news indeed. One a nicest guys to ever drive a racing car, a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Met him several times during his Can-Am days (twice champion), always friendly & polite to the fans, and his competitors alike.
His wins for Ferrari at Hockenheim in 1982, and Imola in 1983 have passed into Ferrari folklore.

Another McLaren would be very nice.

I hope for a new M23 kit, but i guess it’ll be something more esoteric.
