Posted Image This kit was a lot of fun to build, I just hope my nephew likes it, it will be going to Florida so I will have to be thinking on how I am going to be wrapping it up to make sure it gets there with all it's limbs intact!!!!!

Posted Image I love the way the spoiler looked on this model, it gives it a lot of character, I just wished it could have been a little lower but I did not have a lot of time to play with the ride height............ ;)

Posted Image I also thought the rims were pretty neat on this model, they came right out of the box............

Cool bug! I love the color...
As for packaging and shipping, there is a thread about that topic when I shipped the blue Ferrari a few months ago. Basically, I tightly covered the model in flannel cloth, tissue paper and foam, inside a display case. The display case was taped close and centered inside a bigger box with bubble wrap and crushed newspapers. I think the only problem was that the hood and a wiper got loose in transit, but no damage.

Thanks,

Great job as always Cruz! Hope it gets to your nephew o.k. Onlything I'd be worried about is the antenna breaking off.

Yeah man, the antenna is also my concern but I have a little trick for that. I will follow Ismaels advice also, the Ferrari he sent over here was for a friend of mine in the CPMCC Club and it looked like it made it fine..........

Killer paint – the metallic is unusually refined for this scale. What did you use?
