    What a Beauty :thumb: You SIR, did this F1 Classic full justice. Very clean and very sharp build..... this would look great on the FRONT PAGE :twisted: The thing about wheels is that the components {especially at this scale} have to be bang on with the scoring of glue tabs, and LOTS of patience.... you showed us you have both of these :thumb:

    Thank you, Im flattered. The wheels gave me the most frustration, but the end result made it very worthwhile :oops:

    small update!

    I was in Toys R' Us with my son, and he found this in the Hotwheels.

    My brother in law just came back from Japan with this same model. Different company, I don't read Japanese, and it is pretty big. I'll have to post some pics of it. I hope I can make it as nice as yours!! :)

    Excellent built!!!!I have tryed building this twice in the past in 1/43 with disappointing results.I especially like the glaze of the body parts. How did you achieved this?With photo paper or some kind of lacquer?

    That was on accident. When I got it printed out for me, the guy mistakenly printed it on semi-matte paper. he offered to reprint it, but I told him i wanted to try it with the semi-matte. Sometimes the accidents make for better results :)

    That's interesting Rick, apparently, you did not have any gluing issues either. Thanks! :)

    the only glue I have ever used is plain old Elmers glue. it holds very well, and has no issues with coming apart.

    You could do commercials for Elmers. Your use of that glue is the best I've seen! :)
