2022 - Robert is back! - 1/24
« on: October 13, 2018, 10:42:29 am »
Hello,

When I've saw title of  this GB I was sure that I have to take that challenge :)

I'm a big fan of Robert Kubica - polish F1 driver. Now Robert is trying to get back to F1 after horrible accident. Sadly, there is no team that want to take the risk and contract him despite of his experience. Well, it's the time of paydrivers in F1...Still, I hope that we will see Robert on grid next year. I've decided to give him next-gen car sooner :)

When I bought Asurada AKF-11 from Cyberformula anime,  Aoshima 1/24 kit I known that I can finish it in only one way - 2022 season Robert Kubica's bolid, team Scuderia Ferrari :D

So these are sets I'm going to use:

Cool.
 :thumbsup:

Be aware that the space allocated for the driver may not be big enough for an accurately scaled driver figure.  Some of these Cyber Formula kits come with driver figures and they are child sized (or under scale).
Still, i'm sure you'll manage to fit one in.

Can't wait to see this in red.

Let's get started...
First grid girl from Fujimi...well...she's definitely old school one :)


So I have to buy another figure...Masterbox's one:...Hoping for better face :)


Aoshima set is very good but details are minor:


Unfortunately I couldn't fit driver into cockpit - too long arms and no chance for make'em shorter. Not only shorter but also I would have to bend them in elbows which is...well...somewhere very near impossible :) So...I will put a standing driver near bolid. This is how cockpit looks. I will paint it this week.


Hasegawa F1 team set looks very promising, despite it's age:

Painting is going very slowly but I want to achieve high shine so I'm airbrushing with very thin layers :)

I'm not sure that car fulfils the FAI's requirements that the driver's feet be behind the front axle's centre line. Actually I'm not sure ANY of the driver, apart from his/her backbone is behind the line!

Very exotic looking device though.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Hello,

Well, Robert is signed as a Williams driver but I'm not gonna repaint anything :)
Figures almost ready:


I've received main decals, now I'm waiting for the small one with driver name :)


Painting, coating, polishing, repeat...

That's looking really good, especially the figures.  :thumbsup:

And it's wonderful news that Robert really IS driving next year, I do hope he has kept enough of his amazing skill that he showed first time around. Alonso reckoned Robert was the biggest threat to his championship efforts.

Thanks :)

Robert is definitelly a very skilled driver, I don't know If there is any of this kind in whole F1 stake. And I don't think only about amazing skill. He talks to car and car answers. Others are using computers to understand an engine, he don't. Robert is just listening ... without other equipment. When you'll watch a movie linked below , you'll get what I mean. To be precise, when Robert started in WRC-2 rallies , he did great, sometimes beyond imagination. It looks like he wasn't using brakes :)
