Ferrari D50 1/12 MFH

Postby primabaleron » Thu Oct 15, 2020 4:41 am

My second model of the Japanese manufacturer (Master?) Mr. Hiro. According to my preferences, it was again the windy racing car - Ferrari D50 in the 1956 Monaco Grand Prix (JM Fangio) markings.

Ferrari took over this model from Lancia and made very few modifications. Lancia introduced a number of revolutionary F1 modifications with this model. Essential is the angled orientation of the v8 (Jano) engine and balancing the weight distribution with the installation of side fuel tanks.

I just added rivets and some screws to what was in the box ...

Brush painting and Tamiya and Humbrol sprays.

Wonderful build. The weathering is outstanding. The latter series of photos with the tools and accessories really adds to its time period.

What an amazing build. I did the MG Models version of this car many years ago. Nothing compared to this beauty.

Very nice build! I like the level of weathering. Some builds of these older cars overdo it for my taste.

Agree with the rest, wonderful model with excellent restrained weathering. Love the sheen on the model, not showroom shiny but a nice used patina.
