Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari 312b

This is the last of my car posts until I get pics of my Batmobile. This is another highly detailed Tamiya 1/12 formula 1 kit built straight from the box. I believe this one is also piloted by Mario Andretti. These kits are not for the novice modeler. They are very detailed and can have some fit problems like I had with this one… I remember putting it up on the shelf a few times before I finished it.

  1. Wow! Nice formula 1 race car from the 70’s!
    Thank you for giving me that feeling that I always had when I saw these cars on TV as a kid!
    There is NO Formula 1 racing car today that even comes close to having such a “charisma” as the “old timers”!

  2. Very nice looking build & finish Chris. But then how does one not love anything/everything Ferrari? Cool design period this one… somewhere in the transition from cigar to rocket ship. God, I have an overwhelming urge to build a 1/24 Tamiya F-60/Enzo… Mmmmm… carbon fiber decals on a shiny red thing…. somebody help me, please….

  3. Love it, I always wanted to build one of the Tamiya F-1 kits, this one is great.

  4. Thanks for the comments…feel good….And Stan, I think the only color a Ferrari looks good in is RED….ohhh yeaa….

  5. Great job – the 312B was beautiful and one of the last of its kind.
