Good evening,

Thanks.
 
Here are 2 pics of the wheels painted and installed for test.





On the seat and headrest, a layer of Semi Gloss Black Humbrol was sprayed over the Tamiya mat black layer.
I also started working on these two with oils.

What a great project, and what a great season to pick, the variety of designs is just so wide!

As I learned that the Minardi M189 is really hard to find, a nice alternative would be to build the early season car they ran, the M188B (similar to what Benetton and also Williams did in ‘89). I built it a few years ago, see link below. Good luck and looking forward to more updates!

Very interesting! Looks like i have to look out for one! I will still continue my search for the m189 tho hopefully one pops up one day
There is also the Studio 27 decal sheet to allow conversion of the Tamiya Williams FW13B back into an FW13.Didn't know about that sheet! I love both cars just because Boutsen won in both.

Sorry, the automatic spell correction changed the last sentence. Must be: ..."to remove them until the paint job is finished"

My attempt, to place the gearbox motor unit with mounted exhausts, failed, because the motor cover couldn't be closed. So I removed the motor and exhausts and decided to turn alu exhaust ends. SSC_0066.JPGSSC_0038.JPGSSC_0035.JPGSSC_0027.JPGSSC_0026.JPGSSC_0023.JPG

Does the crooked yellow stripe on the P34s in Japan 1976 count? All this time i've been unhappy with the stripe on my kit not being perfectly vertical and i'm just now seeing that the real cars stripes weren't squared off either.

Nice! 1989 to 1992 are may favourite F1 years.
I recently finished a Modelers Lotus 101.
I had to split the large CAMEL logo as it would not stretch over the bulge in the side of the engine cover.

Malc.Thanks for the tip! It's quite a challenge i recon!

Someone posted yesterday that they wanted the Ferrari. They were going to PM me to work out the details. This did not happen, and their post has been deleted somehow. So, the Ferrari is still available.

That is (another) ambitious project!
Are you going to build the full grid, or just "half"?Just one car of each team will do for me as i won't have the space/time for the full grid

Work in Progress • 1/20 1989 'grid'

F1M Forums - Mon, 09/26/2022 - 13:32
Hello all! I've seen numerous members on here talking about building the 1989 grid in 1/20th scale (just 1 car for each team) and thought why not starting a topic on it to share ideas etc.
The 1989 season had the most entries teams and driver wise in the history of our beloved sport and had beautiful cars and liveries on pretty much every car of that season.

To start this project i had a look at which kits do exist in 1/20th scale:
Mclaren mp4/5 - Fujimi
tyrrell 018 - Studio27
Williams fw12c - Studio27
brabham bt58 - Studio27
lotus 101 - Modeler's
March cg891 - Studio27
Benetton b189 - Studio27
Minardi M189 - AMC
Ferrari f189 - Tamiya
Zakspeed zk891 - Studio27
Onyx ore-1 - Studio27
(i know some exist from other brands like the Tyrrell (Factory tz) etc)
so far i have collected 9 of these, missing the Tyrrell (can't decide on which version as i like them all) and the Minardi (just very hard to find)308649283_417645820491478_3869836295929521879_n.jpgthe cars not existing are:
Arrows a11
Osella fa1m
BMS dallara f189
Ligier js33
Larousse lc89
Coloni C3
Eurobrun er189
Rial arc2
AGS jh24
First (not sure i should include them as they didn't appear at any race)

ideas for making them would be conversions, 3Dprinting or hoping a manufacturer sees this and produces one of the missing ones ( we can only hope they do )
as far as the conversions go these should be doable:

Arrows a11 - Tamiya williaws fw13b/ benetton b188 ( williams for the main part engine and frontwing are perfect from the benetton) 308629383_468271588565056_2971033937634535152_n.jpg308537970_420740400190020_3679589635687770397_n.jpgthe only problem would be decals. i do have a tameo 1/43 one so maybe a scan could do the trick. i also tried the route to 3d model the car but my skills aren't that well when it comes to surfacing/ smooth curves) but here is how the project halted: 118210222_10224483789986276_7508974349437612097_n.jpgLigier js33 - Tamiya Mclaren mp4/5b and using the studio27 decals for the js33b (livery was moreless the same)
Larousse lc89 - Studio27 Larousse lc90 (shape is moreless similar but would need other decals (maybe a scan of tameo ones?)
Rial arc2 - Fujimi Ferarri f87/88 the 1988 rial being called the blue Ferrari kinda made me think about doing a 1989 one. As far as i could see there are still quite some similarities between both cars. Decals would again be the problem, maybe even more this time as there isn't a 1/43 version of this one (as far as i know)

for the other cars i've yet to do research.

So far i finished the Ferrari a few years ago. 309169268_5715835338479118_3608209354246672978_n.jpgThe ones i'm currently building are the Zakspeed, Lotus, Benetton and Mclaren308640442_1709231109433709_8317003674426263034_n.jpg308456791_1508229139636200_4187828478593029605_n.jpghope this sparks some more interest into this season as it would be great to share ideas about how to build them all

Yes, the Fondmetal is done by Elephant Models in 1/20 at romu-romu.

I got the 1/43 version (not built yet) but kit quality seemed ok.

Not sure this can help but there is a company called elephant models who has a fondmetal gr02 in 1/20. I also remember seeing a march cg911b on bluerace24 but not sure it's still available. Good luck with your search!
