Building the Minardi M193 Ford: step by step Tamiya Lotus 107B Conversion 1/20 scale

Minardi was one of the F1 privateer teams that had never won any grand prix and they were often missed because most of the attention are put on big name teams. Although the team often run with limited budget, Minardi team's strong determination made them on the F1 grid for almost 15 years. None of the major model manufacturers makes Minardi F1. So far I only see Modelers' M198, Club M's M197, Wolf's PS-01 and AMC M193. I found that M193 shape is pretty close to Lotus 107B and McLaren MP4/8. So I bought an AMC M193 decal and tried out the conversion. After more than 15 months of on and off building, the car is finally completed. The result is not perfect, but I am still satisfied with the result. I like to thank my friend Todd for providing me the AMC M193 instruction sheet, so that I have better idea where to place the decal logo, and Johnson Tang for providing me tips of using Gunze lacquer clear coat.

How to paint with lacquers

How to build a model Painting seems something mysterious to all of us modelers, some kind of wizardry out of our knowledge. However, what a big satisfaction we get when we finish our project and we see that it almost reached what we’ve dreamed, and the key to all that is painting.
