Brabham BT49, 1/20, 6-pack

Post by Reutemann »

After two years of preparation, finally my latest project completed:

6 versions of Brabham BT49 from 1979 to 1982

There are 5 AMD models and 1 Studio27 models in collection.
Lots of putting and scratchbuiding, BT50´s were used like donor kits (wheels, wings, suspensions,gear boxes)

More pictures will be added later on.

Enjoy

Nice group photo. I love these! I am bookmarking this topic because I have a BT49C to do eventually. I hope to take some details from these builds, a very nice job on all of them! Thank you for sharing.
