Austrian Legend…1/20 Ferrari 312T 1976 Niki Lauda
So, my dad has finished his third racecar this year after a decades long hiatus.
Well, it´s no show winner but at least it is finished and didn´t go to model heaven.
Mostly typical Hasegawa quality. Only mounting the wheels was a bit tricky. My dad needed some force to do that and broke off some parts. Luckily he was able to fix the damages.
Another tricky part are all those narrow stripe decals, especiall the ones on the lower body. Although my dad sealed them several times with clear coat, parts of them came off when touching the model too much. Had to repaint some of the stripes with a white permanent marker.
My dad didn´t apply the GoodYear decals on the rubber tires, would have been tricky too.
The red paint was a selfmix.
