Ever since we saw the movie CARS my 6 yrs old son is hooked with Ferraris. Like Luiggi said "A REAL FERRARI!!!!" He is always on the lookout on the road for Corvettes and Ferraris :D
Since yellow is his favorite car color (at least this month :) ), Santa had a hard time tracking down a yellow Maisto Ferrari kit for him. The original idea was a F430 but Santa could only find an Enzo. Oh well...

The girl wanted a piece of the action, so she was asked to help with a wheel

Proudly showing it in dad's display case.

These kits really serve a purpose: Paving the way for greater things.
But I don't think he is ready for a Tamiya Enzo yet :)

Well it nice to see you have one stand out on your shelf. :) He did a great job. Guess you'll need to get 2 next time for the both of them.

This is what it's all about, Ismael. Try to keep them both into the hobby, and some day they may turn out amazing builds like you! It only gets tougher when the teen years come along. Nice work!

Tell them they did a great job Izzy! It's great to see them working on that. They'll be better than Dad in no time!

Ismael- would you like for me to see if I can locate a yellow F430 for you? I know I saw one recently at our local Hobby lobby, and I'm going there this week anyway (Gift certificates for Christmas, and a 30% off sale!!)

Let me know.

By the way, your daughter looks just like you!

Cute kids, they do nice work. Pretty soon they'll be raiding your stash for stuff to build (or swap out!)

I've been trying to get my 13 y/o daughter to work on a project (her choice and her idea!) this week, but do you know how hard it is to keep a 13 y/o attention! :?

That's a great way to start them off in the hobby, Ismael!

They'll be building kits just like Dad, in no time!

All the Best!
