I finished this beasty today,the front was cut off to form a flip front and the bonnet was blended into the wings and front panel,the hood scoop is the cockpit cover from a rail dragster.I had to fabricate a new bulkhead for it and the rear bumper was blended into the body.Also I made new chassis rails from brass box section and created ventilated discs from scratch.
The engine is a Ferrari V12 and has twin turbo's.
The shell was sprayed Ford crystal blue and cleared with Halfords polyurethane clear and the chromework was foiled too.

The wheels are off a Tamiya kit and the Revell hubs were modified to fit them,hope you like it.

The metalflake is a little out of scale (ok, a lot out of scale), but I like your work on the flip-nose front. Nicely done.
