Red Bull Racing RB8 | Revell 1:24

02 August 2023

Author | Mateusz Uścinowicz

According to the assumptions, the model was to be assembled straight out of the box for a contest announced on one of the Facebook modeling groups. The assumptions were not met. As the assembly progressed, I couldn't resist modifying and adding more add-ons. The model was not finished in the time given in the competition (it took several times longer...). However, where one door shuts, another opens. Finally, I took part in another, stationary modeling competition, where the model won a distinction!





The main paints used:

• Tamiya LP-47 (base color)

• Tamiya LP-51 + LP-8 (yellow parts)

• Tamiya LP-9 (clear coat)



• The bottom of the front wing, nose and floor are covered with Tamiya carbon decal

• Seatbelt buckles - (SCO-R020)

• Sabelt seatbelt decals - Scale Production

• About 50 pcs of rivets - (SCO-R008)

• Rivets in disc brakes mounts - (SCO-R008)

• Air valves - (SCO-R019)


Modifications and self-made add-ons:

• Diffuser fins replaced with 3D printed ones

• Fabric seat belts

• Antennas replaced with 3D printed ones
