This is one I finished up just a few weeks ago.
Other than the Crazy Modeller emblems (awesome little pieces) and Model Factory Hiro enameled badges (more awesome pieces) this was a box stock build.
Paint is Tamiya Camel Yellow with TS-13 clear. I know it's much darker than the factory yellow, but I like it better than the washed out yellow Ferrari offers.
I had a little fun making a custom plate with the ACME Platemaker. I can dream right? :)

Beautiful!

I have the Fujimi 575 which is pretty much the same kit. Any problems in your build? anything we should look out for?

Thanks,

Beautiful build! Very clean execution.
I keep hearing about how great the crazy modeler emblems are, now I may have to get me some.

Thanks guys!

Ismael, there really were no quirks with the kit. It went together sort of like a Tamiya kit.
The only problem I had, and I don't know if this was just an odditiy with the one I had, was the rear axle shaft. The one in my box was about 1" too short, and I had to make my own, which was no big deal at all.

Harry, I bought mine from Model Express. I've always gotten the best service there.
