Ladies and Gentlemen: The blue Ferrari is done
Posted 21 February 2007 - 02:04 PM
It's finally done. I was in some kind of a mini slump. So I used the opportunity to exercise the basics.
This is a 100% box stock / spray can build. No flocking, no wires, no aluminum tubing, no nothing else other than paint and glue. The only "modification" was cutting the wheel mounting studs so the car would sit lower. Stance is everything.
I have to admit I like it. Too bad I need to ship it back to the owner. :wink:
I had so much fun doing this curbside box stock that I will do 2 more before going back to my beloved detailed Corvettes.
I really recommend all of you to do this every once in a while.
As usual, your comments are appreciated.
Sorry for so many pics, I couldn't help it

Hi, I'm blue and here is Goldy, my evil twin brother:
You can see Goldy sits a hint lower.
Here you can see the difference in the hoods.
Curbside vs Full Engine detail.
Here are some "studio" shots:

Especially the stance :wink:
Too bad Ferrari doesn't realize that :roll:

Too bad you have to give it back to who wanted it. I'd be hard pressed to give something that nice away.
Can't you tell 'em you broke it on the floor or something, and you'll make another one??

Can you hear that????
The roaring crowd?
Yeah, you hit a home run!
I have to agree with you 100%, a box stock build is good for the modeling soul.
I hope your friend enjoys it! Thanks for sharing!

That blue fits the car very well, and the stance is great!

Seeing the gold one again prompted me to just go buy that Revell 612 kit online. Inspiring!

I'm pleasantly surprised to see such a good reaction to a box stock build of a subject that is not necessarily the most popular around. :wink:
Thanks a lot!
