Any scale...

1/20 MFH Ferrari 312T4

Postby JonMW » Mon Jan 13, 2014 2:44 pm

Finally got started on my group build, will be a MFH Ferrari 321 T4 Belgian GP Scheckter car. So far I have dry fitted all the parts, Hiro has really done a really nice kit, didn't have any fit problems at all, but that might change with some paint on the parts. The monocoque and front suspension is build up, still need to add some brake lines and throttle cable. Next up is the cokpit and radiators.

Looking good so far!

I also considered doing that one, but I wanted something reasonably simple to be sure I finished it (for once!).

Very nice. Are they individual rivets on the chassis or are they cast in?

Thanks for the comments. All the rivets are cast in with the monocoque so not much work there, you just need to watch out so you don't remove them while polishing.

Small update, I have added the uprights brakes and radiators. All were painted in various Alclad colors. Next up is to add a wash to bring out some more details, I have started on the radiators. Then I need to start adding the details like wires and such.

Hi JonMW...
Great start you've made so far, looking really good. Respect!!!
I have three of these model kits now, 2 Belgians and 1 Monaco...
One of the Belgian kits I have, is for the Dutch conversion.
I'm following your build with great interest.
Let us know of any problems, inconsistencies or parts that are not the same as the real part...

Best of luck...
I've always believed that you should never, ever give up and you should always keep fighting, even when there's only a slightest chance.

Thanks for the answer. The rivets look very 'in scale' and convincing. Very nice WIP.

Excellent WIP so far. Really enjoying watching the kit come together.
What did you use to polish the parts?
