Red Bull RB6 Tamiya kit on sale
More than half a year after the completion of my Red Bull RB7 and more than a year after abortion of my RB6, the RB6 is now on sale as a kit. Tamiya Corporation releases the kit this week on the Hobby Search fair. It’s scale is 1:20, so half size of my 1:10 cars.
I’m curious to see if the model can achieve the level of detail and the quality of my Red Bull. When I look at the pictures of the engine and gearbox, I doubt it. Especially the f duct looks shonky to me – the activation pipe to the cockpit is missing completely and the other pipes are much too thin. It’s also a pity, that Tamiya did not built an engine. The heat shieldings are irremovalbe. I do not want to bash Tamiya, but me, as a person who knows that car quite well, notices these things. But at least it looks better than my own RB6. 😉
