Ferrari F92A, Fujimi/Modelers 1/20

After spending some weeks on the Brabham I needed something that could be finished quickly.

The kit was the Fujimi reissue of the Modelers kit. Some things were... well... the pins on the floor the second floor sits on had to be redone, because when sanding the flashes and ejector pins on the bottom you would damage them anyway. The frontwing/nose section is not the most solid assembly - of course the painted, polished nose fell off and touched a holding pin with glue, so I had to touch it up with a brush... The rear wing is one part - very stable but cleaning the flashes on the inside is fun - NOT. The exhausts were the worst parts I have ever seen in a plastic kit. And somehow, as with almost all Fujimi kits, everything was well during dryfitting, but when everything was glued together the cowling only fit on one side... I don't know what I do wrong, I sand on the inside to make space for the colour, etc... but I always have problems there...(the wires I added are not the problem, it already didn't fit before I added them).
To make it clear: the kit is not as bad as it sounds, but you can notice the difference between Tamiya kits from the early 90s and this one.

I added some wires, microballed the seat and added etched belts. The kit was painted with Zero Rosso Pre 2004 and Zero 1k clear. Hope you like it.
