1/12 Synapse 2021 Alfa Romeo C41 What's in the Box?

Post by waxdart »

I expect this not to go well as I have never done this with pictures.

Just got this 3D printed kit and I'm quite impressed. The interesting thing to me is the resin seems to be more rubber like. Not the fragile resin I've printed with and gotten in most printed kits. I like It. Everything was very well packaged in bubble wrap and nothing arrived broken.

First you don't get instructions, just a card with a QR code to download them

Decals are very nice and you get 2 sets on some of them, not all for some reason. It looks like they added more for Kimi's last ride.

Quite a set of masks also included

You get about a half bottle of the Metallic Red paint and some seat belt material.

Body parts are very clean, keyed and fit well together.

Wheels, Tires, and Suspension parts and some body parts were wrapped in bubble wrap and shipped in this basket.

Not knowing what I am doing here it appears I can't add anymore pictures. If there is interest I can include other parts in a new post.

Cheers, Tim

I was able to get this kit from Finishers in Japan. Kit is no where near a 1/12 MFH...except in price. The decals are both Laser Printed and MD Printed? according to the downloaded instructions. One set has a metalic sheen and the other doesn't.

Its very nice but I have to wonder why they only give you decals for one driver.
A bit of a strange carry on.
