Footwork FA13, Modelers 1/20

Hi, I finished another one.

It's the original Modelers Kit. Fujimi currently sells a reissue. The old decals were difficult, they didn't like going around curved surfaces, the Fujimi ones should be better, so I painted the red surfaces. Also the yellow ring in the rear rims is a bit too wide for the part.
The parts fit well, even the cowling (I like the seperate parts), only the nose is a bit difficult and the front wing is fragile. I have no clue how people build the front wings of the current F1 generation, that alone is a reason to stay with the old cars

I used Zero paints and 1k clear, the red is Ferrari Rosso pre 2004, black Prisma and Cupli from the can. Belts were made from leukosilk, I only added some wires.

Hope you like it.

Looks good. I can see a couple of mold lines that could have been removed but they are not visible with the engine lid in place.

What's the reason for the slightly more yellow areas at the front of the sidepods?

Re: Footwork FA13, Modelers 1/20

What a beautiful build.

You did a great job masking the red areas. It looks like a decal, so smooth.

I read on a german forum that you'd been busy lately with other things instead of modeling...
I was already wondering what happened to your weekly updates with another great model by you.
I really can't understand how you can keep producing such good kits in such short a time...

Keep 'em coming !
