Kit / Model
The BT44 was one of my first Tamiya F1 kits. I built one in 1978, another in 1991, and the third and last one in 1998, which is still well preserved in my showcase. Actually, this note is entirely devoted to it. It's one of the most valued models in Argentina, since Reutemann was as well as Juan Manuel Fangio, a beloved and admiring driver. Really believe me, I've never felt so joyful as when Reutemann drove his first Ferrari (312T2 in 1976). Speaking about a well known kit, there's nothing new to say about, except that it's a great exponent of the 70s technology with incredible details and that I would like to have time (and skill) to develop a not expensive PE set with some parts I consider, would be interesting to replace.
In spite of this, built out of the box, it looks impressive and captures the aggressiveness and the thoroughbred pedigree it was.
Those skilful modelers, will find much fun, being able to add details and to improve some parts, but essentially it's excellent and convincing.
