Ferrari 126ck and 126c2 WIP

Gilles Villeneuve was one of my idols, when i was a kid. Here in the quebec province he was our heroe. I still remember that day of may 8th ,1982. I was 12 yrs old, washing my dad's car on a sunny saturday, then the music on the radio turned off to announce that Gilles had this terrible accident in zolder and died.....What a shock, i remember it like if it was yesterday.

So i'll be building Fujimi's 126ck and 126c2 in tribute to my younger days heroe. The 126ck was raced in 1981 and will be built with the cowling glued in place with only exterior details while 1982's 126c2 will be built on stands with the cowling and wheels off, with full detail.

I got the KA models FMD detail set for the 126c2 and the Hobby Design detail set for the 126ck

I had to remove the little areation wings on the side, the detail sets providing some photoetch one

I used k&s aluminum tubing to make more realistic exhaust tips on the c2, with the photoetched parts of the detail set

the 1/1 car 126c2 has wire mesh "bulbs" while the kis'one are on plastic, i did not like it so t took them off to scratchbuild some with wiremesh from an airbrush filter
