So I've been trying to finish of models that I've started.

This one was started some years ago then got left, when I returned to it found that the decals had got mould on them. So again this project was put on hold until I could find some new decals.

The Box art.

If only kit where still this price.

Wasn't going to add the driver as I never do, but there's no info on the car to say who it was.

So I took the helmet parts and removed the face from inside.

Need to find two more helmets, so I can do one for the Williams and one for the Jordan.

Nice work Ian and a bargain of a kit. I bet the decals cost three times as much. Its a really nice kit with lots of detail for a 1/20.

The Saudi Williams FW07. Raced from 79 to 82. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Williams_FW07
I saw it once at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Awesome sight and sound.
