I'm a fan of Ferrari, since before I was born, so I was shocked when I got the notice that Ferrari had sold their rights to Mattel. I knew about the 1/20 Tamiya's Ferrari 310B since few years ago , but I had not bought it yet. Due to the notice I was getting from Ferrari, I hurried to buy one to add to my collection. I can't found it in the local stores so, I decided to buy it in HLJ. Two weeks after I ordered the kit, I was receiving it in my house.
I don't recommend this kit for newcomers in spite of being a very good one from Tamiya, it had few difficult points in its building. To build the tub is a challenge because it will need a lot of putty and sanding. Besides, the tub must be painted inside (imitating carbon fiber) before being assembled, like airplanes cockpits.
I list below several additions and modifications I made in my model:
- I modified the steering wheel to make it detachable like the actual cars.
- I improved the following parts; radiator pipes, electric wiring, antenna of the telemetry system, etc.
I needed about 250 hours to build this model, but really it was worthwhile. It looks great in my showcase!
