Inspired by the Ferrari Alonso 599, I decided to make a tribute to 80's and early 90's Ferrari F1 era, the TR '27'.
I started with the 1/24 Rosso 512 TR kit, which is an okay kit. I chose a red and white color scheme and tried to arrange it similar to past F1 cars. I had to use Acryl white primer to prevent the red plastic from bleeding through, it actually worked well but you have to put it on over regular primer for adhesion purposes. The red is Finishers Silk Red. The thin stripes are S27 white stripe decal.
The seats are from my parts box, the aero mirrors and rear wing came in the kit, the 'Dori' version. I wanted the rims to look similar to the 80's/90's F1 cars so I found some Ferrari rims and painted the spokes with Tamiya acrylic gold. The rear rims have been widened using an aluminum trim ring.
The fuel filler is made by Acu Stion, the tricolore stripes and Fiat decals are from various spare decal sheets.
This is definitely for the Tifosi, I don't know if others will appreciate it.
