MFH 1/20 Ferrari 156 Sharknose kit K032 upgraded!

Post by pbrowne »

I had previously posted this short review below of this revamped kit in Vehicle Discussion, but am now moving it to this build, which seems to make sense.

I had previously seen the build of this kit at http://italianhorses.net/gallery/resin/ ... 6/f156.htm which identified a number of shortcomings with the kit, including the cast white metal body, no battery and no water tank (which is a biggy).

Image

Two beautifully cast resin pieces for the body.

Image

Looking further I see a battery in the instructions and the water tank! Also finely detailed cast white metal pieces with no noticeable grain (or at least very little). Included are also the wheel knock-off caps, which I think were also omitted in the original release.

Image

Tubular chassis.

Image

Instructions are typical MFH...

Image

Image

Photo etch in steel and thicker than your normal brass PE that you find in plastic kits.  Wheel spokes on the left and disc brakes, panels, radiator grills, steering wheel arms etc.
