Product Description

In the 2001 racing season Ferrari's new F2001 machine would capture the Constructors' and Drivers' Championships equipped with the longitudinally mounted 3000 Ferrari Tipo 050 V10 engine incorporating an electro-hydraulic 7-speed gearbox in pre-machined welded titanium. After the ban was lifted on traction control, launch control and other high-tech devices at the 5th race in Spain, the F2001 was finished with an arsenal of new equipment to further outclass rivals. By the 13th race Schumacher had already clutched the championship with 9 wins, earning him 53 total wins in his career, as he became the most successful F1 driver of all time and the Ferrari F2001 the undisputed top machine in F1 history.

Tamiya F2001 - challenging but fun build!
By modelman January 31, 2018
This kit being from Tamiya which are usually high quality kits and are of high detail. This kit was no walk in the park to build and some things turned out on it slightly less than desirable with the paint, due to airbrush issues that were experienced throughout the building. Fortunately they were resolved but not until the kit was almost complete. The kits parts and detail were awesome. Everything fit together well. The main issue with this kit really is the amount of patience needed. A lot of time is spent prepping parts to be glued and if you want the kit to turn out very nice you have to take your time, so patience is a must but if time is taken the kit will turn out wonderfully. The actual assembly after the parts were prepped wasn't that bad, just dry fit everything first and take your time knowing how things fit before gluing. Other than the paint issue which was only on me and a decal tearing due to it not wanting to let go when I was putting it over the back of the car I am pretty happy with the kit. I did a repair to the decal and the issue with the decal can be seen if you know where to look and have it close enough to see it. I still believe the final product was good enough to have it still on display and letting it be viewed by others. There are many decals and some are very small and some went in places that were just crazy. But it was a fun build and now I know if I want a highly detailed model Tamiya is the way to go. Even though it will take more time, it is worth it in the end.
