Needs to order a few of these. Got 2x of the 1976 model.
1 for running and 1 for keeping in box.

Mad Max meet F1


This setup will work much better on the ice. I am going to trim the nails down so they just stick out of the tire. As they sit they work very well on the ice. Being so long they move around and I think over time would rip the tire up.

Want a challenge gluing tires? Try it with nails sticking almost a 1/4" out of the tire.

I hope they do a re-release on this kit/bodyset. Send me a PM if someone has a nib bodyset for sale. Thanks.
That's the F103RM "B", isn't it? I have spare lexan shells, PM me if you're interested.

Ice ice baby
Ice ice baby
All right stop
Collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Then I drive both daily and nightly
Will it ever stop?
Yo, I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
I got spikes in my tires so I can race
on the lake which is frozen, in your face!

Ice ice baby...

I guess they can't escape their heritage of building scale models etc. This one looks interesting like the previous one.

Am very keen to see what the other kits look like as I keep getting close to pushing the button on a F104 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-24 as I think they look stunning.

I'd like to see re-release of Benetton B195 and Williams FW18 kits; Schumacher vs. Hill era. I was pretty lucky when I scored a bodyset for Williams about 8 years ago. One former LHS co-worker has the Benetton bodyset but he is not letting it go, darn.

Got this one from a while ago, http://www.minirc.com/mini-z-f1-ferr...-limited-offer

Noticing KO Propo has a mini-z module, so it's AM since the receiver onboard is AM? I still have some high end radios with detachable module at home including the KO Mars. Wondering if the KO mini z module will work with EX-1 Mars.

I've got a painted B195 shell and wing set in a B196 paint scheme, from way back in my UK Tamiya Eurocup days. Been meaning to take some photos and post them up...better get on with that now then

As you know I've fitted B188 wings around a 3Racing F109 shell. The overall shape is slightly different, but with some work it looks good.

Like you James I've seen B195 wings but not come across stickers or a full shell kit. Perhaps the B188 body would work?
