Tamiya’s 1:20 scale Grand Prix range is excellent and they build into outstanding models with little effort – however this one has taken me several years to actually finish! The kit can be built up as either Michael Schumacher or Martin Brundle’s ride from the 1992 F1 season. I … Read more1992 Benetton B192 Ford, Brundle (Tamiya, 1:20)
