appreciated :)

Yes, yes. Not just that: I also put the tyre decals. I remember I took special care in including all that others had forgotten. I remember myself digging into the books... I also put some minor sponsors that others overlooked.
I'll take a look on availability and PM you :D

Ed:
that's what I have, and yes they may be done.

Makes me want to make the car too... :lol: :mrgreen:


Wow that is awesome! I want to make a Canadian GP version of this car and I see your sheet includes the Pharmaprix logo (Quebec pharmacy), and others. I'll PM you.

Yep! :mrgreen: as I said, I put special care in including everything 8)
Yes, we'll fix the way (sorry can't answer pm's nw, smething seems t be wrong) to do it. Lk well if there's something else missing.
I also remember I did the specific French GP version fpr someone, with "FABRIQUE EN FRANCE", plus "speedy", though I can't find the file... but I will!! :lol:

Progress has been slow but I've added some more filler/etc to the body. I wasn't happy with the step on the airbox. Per reference photos it was a little too short, so I added more milliput to help extend it a little. I also managed to shape the headrest, and filled in the panel lines on the monocoque right under the cockpit which weren't present on the real car.

I also finished filling in the duct at the rear of the engine cover which wasn't present on the real car, per my reference photos:

I need to cut some plastic card to add the inner cockpit sides as they're missing in this kit.

The body looks extremely messy but it will be cleaned up and ready for primer soon, then I can start focusing on other parts of the car which shouldn't need much additional work.

I was able to sand down and successfully lengthen the airbox step. I also added a 'fin' to the top of the airbox that appeared on the real car. I also 'drilled' out the fuel filler cap and added some plastic card to the back, where I'll be using some metal fuel filler caps left over from a Tamiya F2001 kit. I'll probably need to clean these up a little but I think it's a good start.

Nice one!
Always good and interesting to see people doing this kit as a Ligier or as the original Benetton.
Mine is waiting to becoming the Spa ‘95 B195 on wets :)

Cheers,
Martijn
I will do everything I can to bring the Number One back to Ferrari.The whole team and all the fans deserve it.

Nice! Mine is on hold because I got distracted with the Ford GT Le Mans kit. You should start a new thread!
