Superdetailing a Tamiya

Benetton B188

1/20 scale

by  Sergio Gabriel Fernandez


Sergio used the Tamiya's kit as base to superdetail a Benetton B188. The more excellent details we could observe on the model are the following: The nose was taken out to show the front end of the chassis with the hydraulic fluid pumps. The motor was detailed with the whole electric circuit. New brakes, disks and calipers, were made and besides the disks have movement as the 1/12 scale has. A helmet was scratch built and plastic hose joint and mesh was used to represent the oil and fuel hose and ducts. Several decals types were used on the chassis and tyres.
