And one more of the Williams on its own (I'm sure you guys have seen enough Ferraris).

Next project - the Jordan EJ10

Very cool ride KiwiKid. I am currently running a Schumi version F2001 similar to yours but as the vodafone livery. I would love to build a body like yours. Is this available from TAMIYA?

Thanks guys.

The stickers for the Williams is from AMS - I think you can still order it from Rainbowten in Japan. The body is the new original body (A Type). For the wings, I used blue vinyl stickers (used on RC aircraft) rather than paint. The Michellin decals on the tires are from the AMS Toyota stickers.

I should mention that on the same sticker set for the Williams, there is stickers for the Jordan EJ10 ... hence the reason why that will be my next project!

Man, I'm a Shcumacher guy, and even I must say that your Williams body looks sweeeeet!

Osherman-winter is quickly approaching and I'm not sure how much play my F201 will get until next year. If I get a chance to run it indoors then I'll pick up the tires now. Other wise, it can wait till next year.

Hi, the high nose doesn't follow the trimline.

You don't absolutely have to have it but it doesn't hurt if you want to get it precise.

It is important to get the track widths the same on both sides. Using a setup board is the easiest way to do this. You can also use a set of calipers or even a ruler. Just make sure you measure between the same points on both sides.

Hi Guys,

I just finish building my F201, and I got to say, this car is great!!! F1 looks and handling characteristics of a touring car.

By the way, great job on the William Kiwikid! I'm going to try and do a McLaren myself. By the way, would you guys be interested in Tamiya F1 decals? I can order the decals and have them available on our website, they run anywhere from $8-16 USD and are the true sponsor decals from F1 teams past and present. Let me know

Thanks

Steve Wang
