Overcoming obstacles

Overcoming obstacles
The Ferrari 126CK came to this world in the early 80s for replacing the glorious (although a bit overdue) Ferrari 312T that was racing since 1975. The chassis was almost the same, but its V6 engine was much smaller, its aerodinamics were vastly improved, and everything was more compact, becoming a machine that was difficult to tame but, once that obstacle was overcome, it brought enormous glories to the team.

Model Factory Hiro 1/12 scale model kits share a lot of similarities with it: they are here for replacing the glorious (although a bit overdue) F1 plastic scale models in 1/12 scale, their details are smaller and much more exquisite, their part listings are vastly improved, they are much more accurate, and although they are difficult to build, both the process and the result will bring you enormous glories ;D

Order a MFH 126CK at SpotModel, sink back in your modeling cave, and get ready to tame this monstruous scale model.
