Benetton B195 Academy

Post by Hein »

Hi guys,

Last weeks I started with the Academy B195. Going to be curbside as most of my builds, just the outside as good as possible.
It is not really representing a particular race weekend. just a general (second half of the season, Airbox shape) B195.

I found out it is a decent kit, no real fitting issues, a lot of parts are nice, pretty refined. fitting of the parts is more or less Tamiya like..
But a lot of areas, like a lot of you might know, are highly inaccurate.. so I modified a lot of stuff on the body:
-Opened up the "wing shape parts" on the rear side.
-NACA scoop for oil cooler between wing support.
-Made the small airs coops on the engine cover.
-panels around rear suspension, drive shaft.
-Changed the lines on the top of the side pods (more straight instead of curved).
-Reshaped the nose a little bit.
-Changed the rear wing support.
-Made some changes to the wind screen.
-Hole for the fuel filler cap.
-Changed some panel lines.
-Build the head rest.
-small aero-ridge thing on top of airbox.
-other things I forgot to mention...
-And last but not least opened up the Y-spokes on the rims :roll: .

A lot of work but could turn into a decent B195.

Reminds me very much of the work you have done on your B194.
How much time have you spend on that masking job? It looks very accurate and clean. Well done!
