Hey thanks Art good hearing from ya .......

Small update.... I was able to get the front tub covered in CF decal ,I also soldered together the radiator and attached the fans and housing. I dropped the body on just to get a taste of the final look. I hope you enjoy!

Not finished yet it still has to be cleaned up a bit....

What's THIS?? Rom, building in 1/8......and it's a Ferrari no less....................... :blink:
Just kidding mate. :D

Man, you know I do love a good large scale build, and this is 1 sweet build you have right here mate. B)
The old saying of turning a sours ear into a silk purse comes to mind.
These larger Pocher kits really should have a lot of this great detail already in the kit, such a shame that another high cost trans-kit is also required. :(

Never the less, I know that with your attention to detail Rom, you will even surpass that level, plus have a hoot doing it. ;)
GREAT work mate.

Glad you joined us Greg and i agree with you a model of this scale should have had lots more detail. but im glad i get to add it LOL!

I got to get a few small details finished or atleast started ....so heres a inside peek.
heres the clutch and brake pedels I made them slightly curved like in the real F40
Posted Image

Posted Image

I also soldered together the ignition key and painted the keychain, then incased it in clear epoxy
Posted Image

here it is in the almost finished dash , I still have to install the gauges
Posted Image

The gauges are made from 4 differant pieces and I made the bubble lense from clear 5 min epoxy....
Posted Image

these are the air conditioning ducts that fit in the top of the dash , these had to be soldered together also...
Posted Image

lastly I wanted to show you the brake cooling duct I added CF to the inside

Thanks for joining me see ya real soon!..... B)
