WIP Wolf WR1 Tamiya 1/20. The very beginning Part 1

Kit / Model  

Wolf Ford F1



Item Code  





I decided to build The Tamiya Wolf F1 in 1/20 scale.
This kit is rather old, but I've always loved this car.
Seeing is age there is a lot of work to do if you want it on todays standart.
This will be a long WIP with many pictures.
Sorry for not speaking or writhing Spanish.
Excuse also my poor English.

That's it for now, as I have to leave.
Will probably made an Up this evening (my time)
Hope you enjoy the very beginning and the pictures.
I'm waiting for your comments, critics and/or questions

Thank you for looking.

This is the right side of the body
Tamiya forgot to make a hole in it to allow the
I made the hole using a 4mm drill. Then sanded it to have a perfect round hole
This is the body
I also cut the nose off
The underpan/chassis
Also cut the front part from the chassis
Here the body simply put together with the chassis temporarely. You also see the "bridge" Tamiya moulded between the rear body, where radiators are.

Hello Jose,
Thank you for looking!
I'm not gona to "super" detail it, as well it depends super detailling.
I will use the photoetch set and the decals from Studio27, but will make a little bit of scratchbuilding by myself.
I hope you will enjoy the WIP.

Are you planning on super detailing it (adding PE parts and so)? I've read that there are some sets in the market for this model.

Thanks for sharing.
