Well, putting my hat in on this GB that I agreed to :) Don't have any other racing cars in my stash, and this one was given to me. So I'm going to start this one!

The "Swift Model" part on the box-art means that it's like the weekend edition of the Eduard kits - a little more basic, and mainly made for someone that wants to build quickly.

The boxart and sprue shot - don't have time attached - but I'm sure you all know I wouldn't cheat on it :) but if required, I can!







And the Actual car

Cool B)

Always liked the idea of building a F1 car. Maybe one day :whistle: :lol:

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Very cool choice K2.
I've a few Protar motorcycle kits in my stash but no cars so I'll be keen to see how it goes together.
Looking at the sprue colours you'd hardly even need to paint it. :)
Did you get decals? If not, then there's aftermarket ones around like these:

Thanks for that - I have been thinking this morning about the paint for it - Will need to try and find some Ferarri Red - Does anyone have any suggestions?

Well last night I was pulling bits and pieces off the sprues and getting the general shape of it... fit isn't great to be totally honest. There is going to be filler on this one, probably a fair whack of it to get some of the joins looking better. No pics today, but maybe tonight if I'm watching Daredevil again! Almost at the end of the firsts season...

I have 2 pots of a Mr Color red I bought for a Ferrari F12 I'll build. It's probably not the right colour, but you're welcome to one if you want. It's Lacquer btw so you will want some lacquer thinners

Tamiya recommend X-7 Red for their F189 kit - and to my eye it looks ok.

Thanks Powder - I'm going to go with some of the paint that K1 has :) I was looking at the X-7 last night, and looking at the pics of the real car it doesn't quite look the same - a bit bright... I could be wrong!

Thanks K1 - you the man. Appreciate the paint

There's a set of photos here taken with good lighting. Helpful for the interior & gearbox colours:

Nice ref pix Powder. Interesting how much of it isn't the usual woven carbon fibre. I guess that didn't come into vogue for a few years after.
The red is much more of a "standard" Italian red than the later cars, which were much brighter. I used Tamiya X7 for mine too, and was happy with the result.
Those 89/90 Ferraris were some of the nicest looking F1 cars ever in my opinion.
Cheers
Tania

Paint and thinner on their way down to you today mate. The thinner is great when used with Tamiya or Mr Hobby/Color paints. Just dont mix with Model Air

This was done in the one night - Nothing painted, just off the sprues, and dry fitting everything. Some very horrible seam lines to get rid off though... Going to take a bit of work and filler... but I'll get it right!

I have a few old Tamiya F1 kits and they all suffer from seam lines.

Ferrari/Italian Red is one of those 'controversial' colours that the anoraks/ anally retentive love to debate :angry: . I'll stop there before I get wound up :) .
From my perspective - looks like a Ferrari, must be a Ferrari ;) .

From experience the Protar kits are a bit dodgy around the joints, but with a bit of time and care produce a quite respectable model (+ they're cheap :P ).

Enjoy the build and looking forward to the final rendition.
