QUOTE (90s F1 Kid @ 18 Apr 2012, 00:53) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi Ian,

Nice collection. How did you do Jean Alesi's helmet detail? It really brings the car to life.

Cheers

You'll never believe me, but I used insulating tape!

The blue circle is a piece of blue insulating tape cut with a hole punch and superglued into place and the Red and Black lines down the side of the helmet is insulating tape sliced with an Exacto knife and stuck into place.

It gives a nice sharp result thats easy to acheive in minutes really!

Glad that you like!

Very nice Ian.
If you like your Tyrrells you should watch out for the original Exin ones from the 1970s.
They are fairly expensive now, but are lovely old cars.
Here`s an apple green Tyrrell from Exin Mexico.
Cheers,
Kev.

They look good together Ian. I especially like the 006 (007 conversion).

Which one's next?

Keep then coming!!!

Philip

Thanks Philip.

I think 009 is the next Tyrrell I'll build.



I've got a wrecked Williams FW07 Scaley that will be the perfect donor car.

But the next car I'm going to build is a 1976 Ferrari 312T2 that will be converted to a Johnson E111 motor for the Heart of England F1 Championship.

QUOTE (Mercedes GP @ 19 Apr 2012, 04:28) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Does this count


Probably not, but it did surprise me at the time I found out that Brawn as well as the Mercedes works team, Honda and BAR are part of a chain going back to Tyrrell Racing. Some nice cars on show, the Elf ones are classics and the Camel one looks smart.

I've got a Brawn too!

I didn't know why I've always liked the Brawn and the team.

It's obvious it me now!

It's because its actually a Tyrrell!

I should have known!

So in answer to your question . . . . .

YES OF COURSE IT COUNTS!!!

Bless you for bringing it to our attention!

I have never really bought into the idea that a team is 'new' after a name change, although I concede for statistical and IP purposes it is, but saying the recent Chinese GP car is in any way a Tyrrell is a real stretch


BTW, no need to quote a post when it is directly above your own one. This is especially the case when images are involved.

Brians beautiful c467 Tyrrell 018 is a car that never was for Scalextric.
It was featured in the XP livery inside the 1990 catalogue & also on the boxes of a couple of building kits.
However, when the car was released we got the blue/white Alesi car.
There was also another (fantasy?) livery of the Tyrrell 018 available. It was "Team Omega Securicor". Not many were sold, but you can get them for a good price. It`s a very pretty car.
It`s catalogue number was c430. The catalogue number was taken from another car that Scaley failed to release- the Lancia Delta.
Cheers,
Kev.



(The Scaley Alesi Tyrrell originally had Pirelli tyres fitted).
