NIce touch on the wheels. Who makes them?


Mike, the wheels are BBS 20" wheels made by Fujimi. They're molded in chrome, which I stripped before painting them in Tamiya Light Gunmetal. The center caps are Model Factory Hiro pieces that replace the BBS decals that came with the wheels. I got my wheels from a Japanese Ebay seller, but you can get them through Hobby Link Japan as well.

Question for you on the Hobby Design P/E and you may think I'm crazy.... Where do part 1 and 2 go? The instruction sheet depicts [bottom center of page just above the rotor diagram] cutting out what looks like a vent in the C pillar (if there such a thing on a Ferrari 458). I'm stumped... Any other P/E tips you have for this set also would be nice. Thanks, Shannon

Shannon, parts 1 and 2 are the vents for the C-pillars. If you cut the back wall off of the left and right roof scoops (parts 80 and 82), this mesh insert replaces it. As far as the rest of the Hobby Design PE goes, it all fits really well. Take your time bending the pieces for the mesh panels under the taillights- it's a pretty tricky complex curve. The metal Hobby Design uses is really soft, so handle with care. You need to paint the black parts, too- chemical blackeners won't work on the metal (aluminum?) HD uses. Good luck!
