This 1:43 scale diorama is based on a photographic research in the Internet. Some details were readapted according to a synthesis of the visual material found. Road surface was obtained with a plywood board etched with big cement faded tiles, dark asphalt effect and various pit-stop ground lines. Pit-crew and M. Schumacher representation are handpainted Denizen figures, while cameraman, sound assistant, several box mechanics and spectators are coated from pewter Phoenix miniatures. Benetton B195 car is a handbuilt Tameo kit while machines for refueling are in plasticard with photoetching applications. Engine starter is in turned alu, the structure holding compressed air cylinder (alu) pipes is made in black painted brass as to complete the external scene. Benetton box was manufactured with plywood sheets wedged with ‘’rapid glue’’ and painted in white. Inner space was coated with white plexiglass panels on which some “mild seven” decals were added. Work desks are in plasticard as well as toolboxes, respectively painted with blue and black colors. A working lighting system, obtained by soldering different brass sections, was placed on the ceiling. Desk lamps, easels, notebooks, monitors, tyre pressure checkers, air compressors, fire extinguisher and various instruments were inserted in the box. The structure holding the rooftop (a light silver wavy card) is formed by two brass arches , each one obtained by fixing in a frame the curved bars and soldering all the rods. The structure stands on a wooden frame protected by a plexi dome. The size is about 60x50x50 cm.
