Detail up kits for Tamiya 1/12 cars?

Postby JohnEnglish » Wed May 15, 2019 11:18 am

I have a 1/12 Tamiya McLaren MP4/6, Ferrari 641/2, Williams FW14B, and a Ferrari 312T.

I picked up the full Top Studio kit for the MP4/6 and I'm wondering if there's anything similar available for the other three. I was looking at Acu-Stion but then I read some of the reviews of their stuff here as well there's a language barrier when talking with them. Their William FW14B isn't in stock and their reply seems to be "just keep checking to see if it comes back in stock".

Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions about detail up kits I'd appreciate it.

Thunder Valley F1 recently announced that they are getting out of 1/12 scale. So, might not be a viable option soon.

There are also old out of production Perfect Parts sets that pop up on eBay time to time. They are more reasonably
priced since TopStudio set came out.

It was speculated here and kind of expected that TopStudio will come out with 641/2 set in the future. I hope they will
do FW14B set too. But there is no official plans announced so far.

Beside PE set from SMS, I am not aware of anything for 312T, though.

Thanks for the replies.

I had actually been emailing Paul from Thunder Valley but he hasn't replied to my last email so I'm not sure what's up.

I read somewhere(?) last year that Top Studio was producing a SuperDetail Set for the FW14B, similar to the one for the MP4/6. During a correspondence with Top Studio over the winter, I asked about the FW14B and they confirmed they were bringing out the set. It was actually due out in 2018, but no sign of it yet, though they do offer some bits for the kit.

I am also on the ThunderValley email list and have purchased from Paul in the past. They currently have a LAST CALL out for orders on the 1/12th items that remain on their website, and were overwhelmed with orders, so that may be why they are slow to respond to queries.

Top Studio also told me in an email they were doing a FW14b kit. RB Motion used to make a fantastic detail set for the sidepods, Rob told me he is considering producing it again next summer.

I have the perfect parts full sets for both the 641/2 & MP4/6

I was not intending to sell but I think it may be ones that I will never get around to building, what with kids and other kits in the way. If someone is more likely to build them then happy to release!

- drop me a pm if you are interested :D
