Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

The Ferrari 3121 F1 1967 is finished...

Time for the Gorgeous 1968 McLaren M7A!

 

This is of course the beautiful kit from Model Factory Hiro, 1/20.

The first step of the post will not be a building phase, but a quick Kit Review  :wink:

The white metal side water pipes replaced by brass pipes and alu holders.
Edi did the same on his build.

Incredible kit. One quick question; why Gravity paints instead of Zero paints?

Beautiful start!

 

I too am currently hooked on these MFH kits....there is just something incredibly satisfying about them for me.  I have been working for a few months on the 1/12 Ferrari 1962 250 GTO....I'm just too lazy to do a WIP.

 

My hope is that they release a 1/12 Porsche 917/30....
