Tamiya 12th scale Brabham BT44

April 14, 2023 · in Automotive · · 6 · 0.8K

My latest project the Brabham .
I picked this up wen it was reissued a couple of years ago. It's an old kit and in need of some enhancements. I've made some parts from alloy turned up in an old watch makers lathe or using simple hand tools. I'll also be using micro nuts and bolts to replace and improve the old mouldings.
Thanks for looking.

  1. A classic Gordon Murray design, and your work so far is great, those metal replacements really look the part. How putting it in a WIP over in the automotive group?

  2. Beautiful detailing, Robert @robert-aspinall
    As mentioned by George (@chinesegeorge), this build will be a great addition to the automotive group.

  3. Thanks for the compliments guys.

    Can't fault the logic of putting this in the automotive WIP section. Just need to work out how to do it.

  4. Great looking work. Enjoy the details.

  5. Great attention to detail. Will be keeping an eye on her.
