Hi. I have started building a Williams FW11 in 1:43 scale and wanted to share the process with you. I hope you like it. Greetings

These 1/43 models look so crazy small.
The tires are exactly the same size as my current kart model in 1/20.
I admire you guys so - that's just incredible magic what you're building!!

Yes, if there is, Tameo has a kit with every detail, but it is much more fun to build it from scratch. I am really enjoying building from scratch and also this scale

Amazing job, and I know it's partly for the pleasure of it, but... wouldn't be an option (and so I answer Mr. Grumpy) starting from Heller's really interesting FW11B?

Just once try to build a Heller kit and (at least that one) they are horrible. if I remember correctly it was a Renault R24 scale 1.18 and the body was so twisted and deformed that I gave up

Their 1/43 F1 cars are a bit crude because of low part count but overall are a nice kit for around $10 + shipping online.

I have the 1/43 Heller FW11B. The body is OK. However the colors on the decals are not even registered correctly. Some colors are not correct. All suspensions pieces need to be rebuilt to look correct.
