  • NSR Brabham F1, can you spot the difference?

    What difference I tiny upgrade can make!

    I replaced the ridiculously SMALL driver's head/helmet on the original car with an upgrade from Interlagos Miniatures from Electric Dreams (https://www.electricdreams.com/Shop/...e-p-21019.html) IMO it makes a BIG difference to the look of the car.

          Thank you.

          I agree, I think NSR did a great job with these, very clever design and the cars run very well, they really raised the bar as far as F1 slot cars are concerned, although Policar with the Andi Rowland transmission design is a close second.

          For me personally this era of F1 was fantastic and I love how the one NSR body design can "adjust" to look period correct just by a change of livery.

          I always liked Patrese and I think he got a raw deal in the beginning of his F1 career (being blamed for Peterson's death) and later on James Hunt's commentary when Patrese was Mansell's team mate was shameful...IMO.

            Lookin' good Chris , a decent helmet does wonders I wish more manufacturers would pay a bit more attention. A bit of matt clear paint on Rick's overalls might make things even better.

            Cheers

              Certainly looks head and shoulders above the stock one....

                  I've always had issues with the NSR figures. I had replaced them in all my Abarths. I also did the same with my Avants when I had them No biggie just personal prefacences.

                    In the case of the drivers, DEFINITELY not a biggy! 😁

                      I liked the Patrese transplant result, so Sir Jackie got the same treatment!
