I’ll use two of the GF-models driver figures representing Alonso for the F10’s I’m building at the moment – I’ve chosen two; GF-24-036 (a ringer for Alonso) and GF-24-003 which needed a bit of modifying in order to get the suit fitting tighter as worn by Alonso at the moment.Â The “baggy” fit of the suit on this figure would be more akin to something worn by Jacques Villeneuve – he always seemed to wear his suit 4 sizes too large – maybe I’ll get another one – I feel a Sauber coming on? – no definitely not – too … Continue reading GF-models Driver figures – Revell Ferrari F10
The second of my two F10’s is going to represent (a very loose interpretation) of a Fiorano test version – once again there is just something I find very mysterious about matt black cars – so I couldn’t resist giving the F10 theÂ full treatment in BLACK!Â With the exception of the wheels, all these test version seem to be entirely black, so to save myself effort and time I decided to leave all the pieces on the sprue for the initial coats – I’ll clean up seam and sink marks later and give them another coating. Coming back to … Continue reading Revell Ferrari F10 – back in the BLACK!!

Here’s a quick overview of my approach and experiences of the assembly process so far: Engine fully asembled – (very straightforward). Assemble both exhaust stacks but don’t attach them to the engine yet – check later that outlets line up with openings in bodywork. Attach engine and lower part of gearbox to chassis floorÂ – (also straightforward). Assemble and attach top of airbox/rollover bar to top of body Having assembled both radiator pods and attached them to the body, I think I should have left them offÂ for painting – but we will see later! I also cut the top … Continue reading Revell Ferrari F10 – work in progress
