At the end of 1975 the Austrian Niki Lauda (team's second driver) was crowned F1's world champion. Here the man's and machine's successful career begin, the car: a Ferrari 312T. A revolutionary F1 with 12 horizontal cylinders engine (named flat 12) and traverse gear box (this is the T's reason ), with an astonishing aerodynamics and a construction quality early several years to their time.
In 1976 the regulations changed, the periscope air intake could not exist anymore, because the maximum height was limited and some extra security measures were imposed in the cars.
The 312 T2 model evolved until the end of 1977 , when the incredible Niki gets the maximum position and obtains his second championship.
The following year the T2 was replaced by a completely evolved design the T3.
The scale model
In 1976 Tamiya releases for sale, a Ferrari 312T reproduction in 1/12 scale. With representative features for that time but with details that even today amaze those who confront its construction.
It also contains some metallic parts ( lead ), and few resin parts.
A sheet of Tamiya's Ferrari 312T4 decals and some adhesive too (that I rejected for being incompatible with my techniques).
