Arfix are well rubbish.

It says you can build it like the ad, NO YOU CANT!!!! its pretty much made for you, you screw the barge boards rear wing and wheels on, im sorry, but it should be a proper set, like on the advert. So i can paint it to look like a honda! god damn them.

Nooo, on the advert the mclaren they are building is a proper airfix set, where lots of little pieces come on a grid and you have to cut them off, and glue them together carefully, and paint them nicely, and put on all the decals with little tweezers and paint brushes, its great fun.

Screwing 7 bits together, isnt. :-|

Quite, I have quite a few proper F1 ones, I don't see why they couldn't do it properly in this case too. Lazy sods.

Random thought:

F1 cars generate (or at least used to - can't say for this season) enough downforce at speed to let them drive upside down.

Why have they not put that in to a race yet? I'd love to see that!
