Re: Alonso to Aston Martin

This has been quite the silly season. I was disappointed in Renault/ Alpine when it felt like they were not really in it to win. Also it appears new management were not the best. Yes the AM now is terrible but they are putting in the people and infrastructure to hopefully go forward. I expect Alonso...

Re: Vettel retiring; Porsche buying half of Red Bull

I am not a Vettel fan but I always thought he was a good driver. I think he just lost his mojo and could not get it back. I recall reading one time that he felt that sports psychologists were useless or something like that. I however felt that a lot of his problems were frame of mind and that a spor...

Ferrari inventing new ways to lose. So frustrating.

Re: Studio 27 1:20 BAR 002, Japan 2000

I think I am lucky that applying decals have always been fairly easy for me. Maybe because of that it is a part of the build process I enjoy. Masking and painting multicolour paint schemes is another story. What you have created in that time is definitely admirable! It's always magic when someone ma...

Re: Studio 27 1:20 BAR 002, Japan 2000

I am not sure what the correct colour for the cockpit inner wall is. With the quick build I never checked any references. If I was guessing I would think it would be carbon fiber. Very good Work :) ! That Rear Wing looks cool. Current Regs Rear Wing would look much nicer with that frontal Element. I...

Re: Renault R26 Fernando Alonso GP Japan 2006

Very nicely done. Excellent looking results.

I have the S27 R24 and R25 and screwed up the masking and painting so I had to strip the body completely.

Re: Studio 27 1:20 BAR 002, Japan 2000

Other problems. During my rush I must have glued the gearbox slightly off. This meant the rear wing would be off. So I cut into the mounting point so I could glue the wing straight and centered compared to the undertray. Something warped between the body and undertray so now the body will not sit fl...

Re: Studio 27 1:20 BAR 002, Japan 2000

http://www.alexkung1.com/scale/bar02/bar02_files/image018.jpg Since there was no longer a rush I decided instead of spraying everything with a flat coat to seal in the deals I cut out circle masks to protect the wheels as they were nicely machined aluminum and I thought they looked nice. http://www...
