The fully assembled, painted, detail painted and decaled Ferrari V12.

Posted Image

The drivetrain is now in the chassis.

Posted Image

Hope to have the rear suspension done for tomorrow. Maybe even the front but don't get your hopes up.

John, that looks great! I bought a few of these kits for the engine, they should drop right into the Fujimi 550/575M's.
Look forward to your progress!
Here's mine in Nero Daytona Metallic:

Chris,

Thanks! What colours did you use for the interior?

Mine's a dark blue just to be different.

Posted Image

Like this. Tamiya Sprays Dark Mica Blue to be exact.

As for an update, things are moving right along.

If I can find the time, I should have a rolling chassis by this time tomorrow.

John, I used, I believe, Tamiya Light Sand.

Pretty generic, but I like the way it looked.

I promised a rolling chassis but sadly, Jackson and the boys couldn't deliver.

It's sad when you can't count on your right hand man. :(

Dang good question. I've got three or four sets of them. One is from RnD Unique (definately not the RnD one). I've got a set from GMP Diecast (Don't think this is from them) and I've got a set from Team Caliber (?). Pretty sure this one is from them whoever they are. Came from WalMart in a set of NASCAR pit goodies - jack stands, war wagon and etc.

An old friend dropped by today to show me his new 1:1 '07 Ford F250 SuperCab 4x4 so I showed him the partially completed Scaglietti.

Posted Image

Even dropped the body onto the chassis for him.

Posted Image

The reason for the holdup in progress was me trying to find a suitable colour for the brownish leather that Ferrari uses. What do you think?

Posted Image

Posted Image

I think it's close enough for me.

As long as you are happy with it John. I think the computer screen colors will make it look different to us all.
Burnt Sienna looks good, but is a bit more red and more suitable to a Porsche. That looks pretty good to me though.
The Scag looks great! You'll have it finished in no time.

It's not even close to burnt sienna Chris. A woody tan which is funny as Testors calls it Wood. :lol:

Here's the reason for the delay in updates. I've been working on the interior.

It's getting harder and harder to work on as it nears completion.

Posted Image

Typically, I don't mask to paint window trim but I thought I should on this one.

Posted Image

The body was glued to the chassis just before I sat down at the computer tonight.

I've been busy with other projects the past day or two so progress has been slow on the Ferrari.

Posted Image

The tail lights have been installed and the whole car was polished today.

Should have it road ready in another day or two so long as I have the time.

We'd sorta put it to one side for a few days (about a week actually) before doing the final details.

Posted Image

RoG's issue of the kit painted Tamiya Sprays Dark Mica Blue.

Posted Image

As is typical of a RoG kit, fit is a little fiddly at times. In my case, it was fitting the body to the chassis and the driver's side windshield wiper.

Posted Image

Posted Image

FWIW, the hood is hinged and opens but there's not much to see nor is the chassis much to look at. All aerodynamic panels.

Posted Image

The brake rotors were given a wash but I think I should go back and give the lug nuts a wash too.
