I think Kyohso made a Benetton B194 kit. I've never seen a sheet from the kit for sale on it's own. I've seen the kit go for a few hundred, NIB. But that's a little steep for a sticker sheet. Good luck. Let me know where and if you find it..I'd be interested in doing one those as well...just not Schumi's.

Default bodies

I'm trying to figure out which body is most detailed and which bodies fit the different chassis? I'm just looking to get into F1 and haven't decided which chassis to pick up. From what I've read most preform similarly when setup correctly I'm looking for the most accurate scale appearance so body compatibility will play a role in my decision.

Dunno if they did the B194
They did do the B192 tho.
That i know for sure because i have one lying arround here.
With some modding you can use the B195 tho.
@Vyger...You planning to do a JVS B194?

Questions??

I don't race on-road at all, but all these awesome posts and photos makes me want to build and F1 chassis and paint up a body.

Are these kits still being made?

If I want a shelf queen, what is a good old roller / kit to look for?

How much should I budget to build an F1 roller with body?

TIA!

A basic F104 will set you back about 160 for a rolling chassis with a body. If you want to do something other than a Ferrari or a McLaren then budget another $35 for an aftermarket decal sheet. Pm me with any other questions

Hi guys,

I've got my F103 setup very nicely now but the Foam tires are massively worn down and chunked up, so it's definitely time to replace them.

Do you know which Foam tires are good for Asphalt, relatively high grip.. I've got a set of rims already which are Tamiya foam rims, so i'd like to get some to fit them to save money.

If I found a sticker sheet that was reasonably priced I'd add it to my list of things to do.

That's a F103 with a Protoform "M-type". It was actually modeled after the 1994 Mclaren MP 4-9 Peugeot. The body included lexan barn doors. I had one of those for a bit, the body handled really loose.
