Ferrari 312T4 Formula One race car
This model was done to depict the car raced by Canadian driver Gilles Villeneuve.  As this car was done quite a while ago, my
painting skills were not too good - dust specks and a rough finish.

In early 2006, I stripped off all the decals and paint.  I glued some sheer curtain material on the underside of the body to simulate
fiberglas.  The body was repainted with Tamiya white primer, Italian Red and Clear, then polished and waxed.  The car was
entered into the GPMA Formula One challenge build, with a deadline of March 31, 2006
