Ferrari F2003-GA (1:20 Fujimi)

Postby ron_killings » Mon May 20, 2019 1:13 pm

Hey guys

The next car I want to show you is the Ferrari F2003-GA from Fujimi.
I finnished it last october and I was very happy when it was done. Because, in terms of fit, this is one of the badest kits I have ever seen.
The engine cover would never fit to the rest of the car so the only chance was to glue it in place.
Some of the panel lines were still huge so I filled them with putty and engraved new ones.

I didn't change anything on the kit. It's built out of box. I just added seat belts and some antennas.
The tyres are a little bit too wide for the wheels.
Painted with Zero Paints Ferrari red and 1K Clear.

Team: Scuderia Ferrari M@r!b*r*
Car: Ferrari F2003-GA
Driver: Michael SCHUMACHER
Year: 2003
Version: Italy GP

Here is a pic fron the final assembly.
It was the first time I had to use clamps to glue the body in place. :lol:

I hope you like it.
Cheers Bernhard

Very nice build! It looks like one of the MFH kits, I wouldn't have guessed it was Fujimi - and I mean that as a compliment!

It looks great! Shame about the fit of the engine cover though, hopefully you didn't put too much time into the engine.

Great build and perfect photo ambiance. In a first glance could easily look as if it's the real car. Lately I've been thinking that all those cars from 2003 to today [which have the engine cover bending inwards at the bottom], are to be built either closed or full detail open. To have an openable engine cover in 1/20 is a big problem.
