Hasegawa 1/20 1976 Ferrari 312T2
August 8, 2013 in Cars & Motorcycles
My first car model in nearly 40 years. I had been waiting for decals for my Trumpeter Wimpy Mk.1c, and happened to see this at my LHS, which was sadly going out of business. It still has wings, however.
I have a new-found respect for car guys, as this thing was a labor. Many opportunities to add wiring, plumbing and the like. The decals weren’t bad, but the pinstripes gave me fits. Next time (?) they get painted.
This was Niki Lauda’s car. He won four GP’s in 1976 before nearly burning to death in this same car during the German Grand Prix. He came back to race again, and has an airline that bears his name.
