Here's my first of two for this GB.

It's the 1/20th Tamiya Brabham Alfa BT46.  Everything went together quite nicely.  Decals were yellowed so I got new ones from IndyCals.  A fun build.
















Thanks for your comments,
Mike

Lovely, truly lovely! I luv that it's A) a big boxster engine, B) an Alfa instead of the common Ferrari, and C) beautiful paint/decal design. Thank you!

The mojo's been back recently, so here's #2.  It's the 1978 Ferrari T3 of Gilles Villeneuve.  Chrome was stripped off the spoilers and BMF used.  IndyCal decals used(except for the rear wing).  Monofilament used for fuel lines.  And Tamiya seatbelts added in lieu of the driver figure which gave problems.
Overall a very fun build.

A beautiful build, sir, and I envy your patience in decaling. That would be my worst decal nightmare.

Lovely job Cole and you did a great job with those decals, the more so since they were old an fragile.
