Toro Rosso STR3 - Sebastian Vettel, Monza 2008 - E.Jan 1/20

Post by TvD »

Another one I finished last year but hadn't gotten around to making pictures off. This represents the Toro Rosso STR3 driven by Sebastian Vettel at Monza in 2008 to score his maiden win. Kit is by E.Jan and is a bit of a challenge to build because of all the "side wings" on it. The livery with the red bull was actually not as hard to put on as I feared beforehand. It turned out pretty nice as far as I'm concerned :D Lots of CF used on this one as well, including floor, suspension, front wing and rear wing. The rain tyres were included in the kit.

Enjoy the pictures!

Beautiful work, I always loved the look of the Toro Rossi over the RB cars.

Excellent build Tim! I miss the Toro Rosso livery.
I have this one waiting to be built ( standard version pre Monza ) and was worried about the decals as well. Good to hear it worked without major problems.

Thanks! This does remind me of something I did in this build though. I didn't use the gold decals for the nose but airbrushed it. Also, I painted the part of the body that is covered by the bull red first. That way any gaps between the decals won't be visible 8)
