This is our most recent addition to the Customer Gallery. It is a beautifully completed Hasegawa Ferrari 312T by Alessandro Prini of Monza Italy. Sandro included in his build the Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2002 Wingfoot Rain Tires. This is one of our first ever releases. It is still and always will be available today. In addition to the rain tires Sandro also had his good friend & great craftsman from Sicily, Michele Lauria machine the gorgeous turned aluminum wheel rims. If this build does not inspire you to build F1 cars then nothing will. The finish of this model kit is nothing short of superb!!!
I'm proud to submit today 5/16/2014 to the customer gallery the recently finished and beautifully done Trumpeter, Ford GT40 by Eric Cole. Eric built his model to depict chassis #XGT2 as raced at LeMans in 1966. Eric used Icon Automotive Miniatures #TT-1201 replacement tire for his build as well as a host of other aftermarket supplied items such as the KA Models Super Detail Set and the Best Balsa Kits superbly crafted decals as well as some custom decals by of all people Rob and Wayne:):). I think you will agree Eric has made what is said to be a less then perfect model kit into a stunning rendition of the 1966 LeMans beauty.

This beautiful Brabham Surtees TS-19 was built by John W. John used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2002 rain tires to complete this Studio 27 version of one of what I consider a very striking Formula 1 race car.

This is a beautifully built version of Patrick Depailler's 1976 Japanese GP Tyrrell P34 built by ALEX NAHOOY. The base for this model was the Tamiya Tyrrell P34 kit #20058. Alex used Icon Automotive Miniatures first release item #RT-2001 for his tires.

This Studio 27 release of the Lotus 87, kit #ST27-FK20158 was built by JACQUES HABIG from the F1M forums. This is a gorgeous version taken from the practice and qualifying sessions of the 1991 Canadian GP. This is the only time a Lotus 87 appeared in the black and gold JPS livery during this time period. Jacques used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2005 rain tires to complete his build.

JACQUES HABIG is one of the most prolific builders I've seen from the F1M modeling forums and it is obvious by how many superbly built models he has on display here in the Icon Automotive Miniatures Customer Galleries. This build is of the Tamiya Ligier JS11 and it represents the car as raced by Jacques Laffite in the Belgian GP at Zolder in 1979. Jacques used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2004, 1979 rain tire set for his build. Also Jacques chose to display his build as he does so often with a very nice GF Models figure (#GF-20-025) holding an umbrella.

SCOTT SHOJI of F1M built this fantastic version of the Tamiya Wolf WR1, kit #20006, depicting Jody Scheckter's 1977 Canadian GP winning mount. How fitting a Canadian born car wins in it's home race. Scott used Icon Automotive Miniatures item #RT-2002 to complete his build along with decals from Indycals

This Tamiya Williams FW07, kit #20014, was built again by SCOTT SHOJI depicting the car driven by Alan Jones. Scott chose Icon Automotive Miniatures item #RT-2005 for this build. He also used Indycals decals to finish off this stunning build.

Bernhard Falb from Austria built the lovely Tamiya Benetton B192. The kit was built straight from the box with the addition of some scratch built antennas and some Carbon Fiber decals. Bernhard also used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2017 1992 Asymmetric Rain Tire to complete his build of Michael Schumacher's first career victory. Nice work Bernhard!!!

JACQUES HABIG built this superb version of Ronnie Peterson's 1978 Austria GP Winning Lotus Type 79, Tamiya kit #20060. This was Ronnie's last victory before is fatal accident at the start of  the Italian GP at Monza just a few weeks later. Jacques used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2012 rain tire set to complete his immortalization of Super Swede, one of F1's most talented drivers not to win a World Drivers Championship.

This very nice conversion build was made up using a Tamiya BT50 and copy of an old AMD BT49 transkit that had been modified. I'm told that the AMD transkit captured very well the shape and detail of the Brabham BT49. This is another beautiful build by JACQUES HABIG. Jacques used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2015 Brabham BT50 rain tire set to complete his model conversion of the BT49 from Watkins Glenn 1979 driven by Nelson Piquet.

This Lovely Ligier JS11 was built by JEAN-PAUL GALLIEN. Though he started with the Tamiya Ligier, kit #20012 there is little left of the original kit. Jean-Paul made all the modifications necessary to transform the JS11 into the JS11/15 including the use of Icon Automotive Miniatures #ST-2003-G front 15 inch tires and  GOTTI wheel conversion parts. Nice Job Jean-Paul!!!

This is another fantastic build of a classic championship winner, the Brabham BT49B. This is a Studio 27 kit built by none other then JACQUES HABIG of the car raced by Nelson Piquet in the British GP at Brands Hatch in 1980. This race was during the time period when many teams were experimenting with different tire and wheel arrangements to try and come to terms with the new aerodynamic advantages gained by Ground Effects race cars. At this race Brabham use 15 inch Gotti wheels and 15 inch tires on the front of the car. Jacques was able to represent this change in car set up by adding Icon Automotive Miniatures #ST-2003-G wheel and tire set.
 JACQUES HABIG is quickly becoming the most prolific 1/20th scale builder to use Icon Automotive Miniatures products. With this built of the famous Renault RS01 from 1977 Jacques choose to use Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2003 rain tires. This car was the first turbo charged car to compete in Formula 1 competition and made it debut in the 1977 British GP. Quickly nick named, "The Yellow Teapot" by rival teams. It earned it's first championship points in the hands of Jean-Pierre Jabouille for a fourth place finish at the USGP in 1978 at Watkins Glen. The car was also used during the start of the 1979 season and scored the first pole position for a turbo car at Kyalami, South Africa. This car broke the ground in Formula 1 for all other turbo powered cars to follow on into the 1980's.
This beautiful Brabham BT45 was built by DAVID THIBODEAU. David used Icon Automotive Miniatures #RT-2002 rain tires to complete this Studio 27 version of one of my all-time favorite Formula 1 race cars. David even used the race number of the best Brabham driver of the time, Carlos Pace!!
