1/12 MFH SF71H

Postby Sennafan » Fri Jan 18, 2019 6:15 pm

Just got this over the break

Will try with Splash Paints and 2K clear as an experiment

Here are some early pics

And from all my complaints about white metal body inserts, this time the main resin insert on nose was a bad fit, too big and needed some serious sanding

Compared to F2008 this should be a breeze to polish up except for front wing which will be a nightmare

Someone please make some templated CF decals

I'm excited how you manage this kit, cause it is in my MFH stock but the 640 and the 643 are my next projects in the pipeline.

Some other parts, assembling to ease paint, but since this kit is basically 10 different types of carbon fiber and the red, I am not going to assemble al parts together

Here is the front wing with dabs of super glue only to paint

Image

Nose will be left as one piece

Image

Winglets are left as separate to paint red to

Image

Although kit instructions say to integrate the side pieces, it’s almost impossible due to all the CF under neath them in the main body piece, the halo Durant need to be integrated as the on the main car it’s git separation lines

Image

Integrated these pieces, they are also all CF, but will display this with wheels on so likely will not fully CF

Image

More to come

Using Tamiya pink primer to prime

Wiill use Splash Paints fur this car to paint - soon

CF, may use every brand I have and the included square patterned paint thru decals

I have pulled a lot of reference pics and the CF patterns are extreme on this car

Whilst I'm not a fan of this generation of cars I always enjoy following your work so I will be watching this build with great interest.

Here are the other parts, all to be painted black or a version of gunmetal for carbon fiber application

Like earlier posted, I am not going to attach all parts and Sean fix, I’m going to CF everything separately per photos I’ve found

This will be a hard job with all these tiny barge boards or lets call it "wings"!
