1/8 Ferrari 643

This model kit has been produced in Japan in the early 90s, and it is likely to be one of the most sought-after kits in scale 1/8. After a short but very successful period of production, the Rosso corporation went bankrupt after a fire in their factory. Production never started again.

A very detailed and first-class-constructed kit of the Ferrari F1 car of 1991 (Grand Prix of Japan) in the versions Jean Alesi or Alain Prost. Decals for both drivers are there. The bodywork, various chassis parts and wheels are made of metal. Pre-painted body in Ferrari-red. Engine, peripheral and monocoque in well shaped plastic parts, many additional metal parts like an exact steering rack. The quality of components and the detailing could be compared with the excellent kits from TAMIYA.
