Purty much built straight out of the box...just added plug wires, etc.
Kit was given to me by Raul Perez with the body pre-painted, so finally got a round to building it
nice old kit, excellent detail and went together fairly well

quite impressive for this kit. I've build it too, I need to say that the quality of the kit was poor. ( or it was my modelling skills....hahaha)

I love it, job well done!

Very cool, one of my all-time favorite Ferraris.

Mine got a bit closer to being built when I recently received a new set of road wheels/knockoffs/tires from Harold Bradford/Historic Racing Miniatures. I'd have been happy with the wheels alone, but the tires are so much nicer than the kit tires.

Here's a photo if anyone is interested (ignore the wheels on the left; the photo shows what I found at our NNL in November):

So that's what I did with that old kit! :blink: The older I get, the less I seem to remember where I put/left things! :D :lol:

I'm glad to see that it got finished!! It sure looks a lot better than I thought it would!! :P

Keep up the GREAT work!!

Nice build!!

Am I the only one wishing Italeri would start re-popping all those front engined Ferrari kits again? Especially the 250SWB and California Spyder...

Wow...now that's even better :D

If it's the Italeri...it's the best styrene SWB made (Esci/AMT awful, Gunze is kind of odd). Only issued once, so it's scarce. I finally scored one recently for a very attractive price at our NNL.

Yeah...I'm pretty sure it was the Italeri kit. I got tired of building box stock models and gave a bunch of them away to a couple of my good friends, Hossain and Curt. :unsure: I knew that they would build them well, and I wasn't wrong. :P
