The store by my house has two of those in the case. One has the cowl off, and it's done really well. I'm not sure if they're exactly the same, or teammates, or what...

That sucks! Big time! That's Penske livery (or a pre-97 McLaren) on Ferrari car! What a ... ...

I will be buying Tamiya's F1-2000 some time. It's weird, though, that it comes in 1/20 scale. Why not 1/24???

But that car sucks!

It would have looked better if the nose had been kept red, that way it would have looked like the 1970's Ferrari T2 is it?

Anyway, one of the race cars had a very high air box and that was all white.

Strange idea, but well executed!
It isn't that strange, as of course the Ferrari is Marlboro sponsored.
But the Tifosi would have something to say with it looking so much like a McLaren!!!

Why 1/20th!!!

Why 1/25th! Why 1/16th! I mean, where do all these manufacturers get the ideas for all the obscure scales!
Yes, it is flippin' annoying, especially as if you want to do a copy of the say, the Scuderia Ferrari Transporter! You would have to make the 1/24th Revell kit instead of Tamiya's, so it is hardly beneficial to Tamiya!!!
Oh well, just got to live with it!

The more I look at the Ferrari, the more I like it though!

I would love to talk to the guy, find out why!!!
