Zakspeed 891, Hasegawa, 1/24

Postby MarcoSaupe » Sun May 19, 2019 9:07 am

Hi,

I guess there is no plastic injection kit of a less successful car available, than the Zakspeed 891 from Hasegawa.

It's often said that a car that looks fast, will be fast, but that was not the case here; I really like the lines of the car, it looks nice, but it was not helped by the underpowered and unreliable Yamaha engine, so it got past pre-qualifying only two times. In both cases Schneider managed to get the car on the grid, but it always ended in a DNF.

I like the kit, I got the recent reissue, the poison decals are available in both cardinal directions, easy to build except for the wings, which are rather fragile; but in 1/24 the wings are too thin for me to fix them with rivets. Painted with TS8, 26 and 29 from the airbrush, Mr. Super Clear on top. I added the usual belts, wires and some self adhesive foil as heatshield.

Hope you like it.

Very nice. Might have to have just moved the Zakspeed nearer the top of my to do list. Seriously good looking car.

Hi Marco,

your Zakspeed looks really great. You are right: It was such a fast looking car. I especially like the look of the T-shaped airbox.
I just wonder why you used the East decals? Both times Schneider qualified, his car had West decals.

Well, first, I almost never build to a specific race, for me it's enough to build 'a' Zakspeed 891. Also I think East looks nicer than West here on the car.

Great job, it was a great looking car and the Yamaha is a glorious bit of kit.

Wonderful build! I love most of those little bad cars of the late 80's and early 90's.

Hi Marco,

You have done a beautiful job on the Zakspeed. Great work!

I have the FW14B, J192, F189 early version and the Larousse. They are quite good ones.
