Ferrari F93A 1/12

Kit / Model  

Ferrari F93

Manufacturer  

Intermodelli (Matilde Models)

Item Code  

01

Scale  

1/12

Description  

Within the long list of beautiful, but not very successful models Ferrari showed in the F1 during the ninetieth, it appears in an outstanding place the F93A.
It was a F92 development, with active suspensions. Because of the people involved in the design and the money invested, It was a car which everybody expected a lot from.  During 1993 not only Alesi but Berger had a year that Ferrari doesn't want to remember.

Intermodelli F93A 1/12 scale
This kit came up for sale several years ago, I remembered I have seen it in different times, but I never had the temptation of buying it, I don't like to work with resin kits. After having received the Model Plus F399, my enthusiasm, compelled me to get a F93.
It is definitively a home-made kit, the overall box presentation is good.
It is compounded by resin parts, from different characteristics, a photo-etched sheet, metal suspensions, four wheel metallic rings, solid rubber tires, red adhesive cloth for the belts and a decal sheet.  

The kit doesn't provide motor, but a gear box, water radiators, instruments panel, etc. I explain this because the finished kit is only a model of the original car, to appreciate its shape. If we want more details, we will have to build them, a Tamiya's Ferrari 641 motor could be useful, but the suspensions and other details must be scratch-build by us.
Resin parts that belong to the body are really poor, there are mold marks, that for their size, seemed difficult to be cleaned, and parts where cleaning of mold marks means to carve them.

Besides the resin has also lots of bubbles what will force us to place putty on the whole body surface; much patience, files and putty will be necessary to be able to achieve a convincing model.
Really this it is a negative point, and it's a pity, because the car and the kit are really pretty. The sample I received has several holes that pass over some areas, like the air intakes, which must be necessary to be reconstructed, a hard work!, it is obvious that the molds are not young.

I was thinking of doing the f93a where can you buy it from

I am looking for the decal sheet for the Internodelli 1/12 scale Ferrari F93A, also a rear rim. One is defective.

Does the decal sheet have the red for the wheel rims or was that painted.

Any help would be welcomed.

Cheers, Adam

You're right Mario, a rubbish kit. you've made an excellent job of it though! If it were mine I'd have thrown the kit in the trash can and gone to the pub... :)
