Here is my another new project, Honda F1 RA272E.
I started with the seat… I wanted the seat to look real, so I thought to make it look like, with an idea that just popped up… I took some candy foil cover and glued it to the seat. Then I painted it with mat Humbroll black. I have problem with choosing the right color though, the Hasegawa guys did said witch color exactly to use… It’s only Black or Matt Black or White… Just like that, not Tamiya paint, not nothing!
This is how the cockpit looks… I don’t know… I’m not like it very much but I hope the rest of the work will cover over it.
After, I painted the monocoque parts with primer. Next step is another primer.
Here are two photos after I’ve finished painting the body, I’m following the directions and somehow painting the body comes first and then the chassis and the motor. So now I’m starting the motor, next pictures will be it’s. Also I’m using now Model Master acrylic paints, hope it will work fine.
This is photos of the rear wheels chassis, rear breaks and motor. None of them is finished at this point. You can see the “improved” trumpets I tried to add, but they look ugly! Soon I’ll try to detail the engine more.
And here is the complete engine with the rear chassis, without detailing yet.
Now, when it comes to details, Hasegawa kits are BAD!!! I have to do all by my self using pictures I found at the net. Pictures of the Tamiya kit, which is more detailed… The first thing to add is the fuel lines… so they have to go from somewhere right?…
Next thing is the wires… I found some wire at home and used it, but it was too short so I made a new order at Detail Master online shop. I used it as a spark plug wires.
