Build Diary – 1991 Ferrari 643 (Rosso, 1:43)

Having done a couple of Tamiya kits in a row, it was time to do something different. I’m led to believe this is a fairly rare item from the Japanese manufacturer, Rosso Corporation – a 1/43 scale version of the Ferrari 643 V12 Formula One car from the 1991 season. This was an out-of-the-box build of the #27 Alain Prost car (Jean Alesi decals are also included for a #28 version). However, I wouldn’t call it a straightforward build as there were lots of fitment issues.
