The R30 and the Lotus really turned out well, too nice to run!

Decal Island has the 2010 Red Bull decal set out now for the F-60 body which should look good.

How do you get even paint near the spine at the back? I had a bugger of a time trying to get paint in there

I've got a couple of more to do, with the R25 Renault of Alonso and the BMW Williams with the F104 body, then I hope to do Vettel's Red Bull in due course.

I make sure I do 3 coats with the body, and that appears to get sufficent coverage in the spine of the body....it is time consuming, but worth the effort.

it's the f60 body. The side pontoons are shaped diffrently from the standerd 104 body. It also has the up-right mirrors.

Thanks. I'm not that familiar with f1 bodies. By the way I'm looking for a new F1 car, any suggestions? I'm thinking F104?

If you plan on running in TCS races, go with the F104. And if you're just looking for a good F1 car to race, go with the 3R F109.

Thanks!! Never knew that 3r f109 was or is a good F1 race car. Just been on the corally site they have F1 chassis. So how about that one.
Probably gonna stay with the F104 I have a thing with Tamiya. :blush. But you never know.....

The F104 is a good car, but slow against the 103 and 109 cars. It'll take a few more versions of the 104 to get up to the speed and handeling of the 103. I'm planing on retiring my 103, even though I've only ran it this season. Once it's over, I'll be spending quality time with my 104 next season, and I'll get thrashed even worse than I am now. But at least I'll be enjoying it.

As far as that corally F1 goes. I have no idea, it's a rare car on the track. And I'd imagine it's expensive, both as a kit and to up keep.
