I hate seat belts

Got the rear suspension together and the shoulder belts done. Man, I hate doing the belts. Using the photo etched belt pieces would be a lot easier, but the cloth belts just look so much better. I bought this Z Model racing harness set from an online retailer. Thank you エヌエフさん who recommended the Z Model harness. Originally, I was going to use it on the BAR 006, but was too frustrated because of the clear coat and decal incident. This is the first time I try. The buckles are so darn small. And in the process, I lost 3 buckles. They are probably on the carpet, looking for them would be just like finding a needle in a haystack. This is what the Ferrari looks like now. (And by the way, on a brand new cutting mat).


  1. Thinking my honest, I have no choice but to use its parts. Because we can not find a good material to others.
    Good Luck!

  2. Thank you エヌエフさん
    I bought several different ones including one from Acu Stion and some other ones from sellers on eBay. Z Model is indeed the best among them. Because of the scale, those buckles are so tiny and my deteriorating eyesight is not helping. (Higher power reading glasses, maybe?) Now that I have done one, I know what I should expect. I will continue to use them for the added realism. Practice makes perfect. Next time it will be easier.
