OK, I am going to go with something totally different from my usual American Automobile builds.

A Ferrari F430. That's right I said it. It is the Revell kit though.

I'll have to start mine this evening as well. I won't have much time on Monday to dedicate to this. So I will be trying to wrap this up by Sunday.

The the games begin.

I am dropping out of this. I was building a 99 silverado and I opened the kit today to find out that the front windshield has a big scratch in it. I'm putting this kit to the side for now. I'm going to order a new front windshield from revell. Maybe next time I can join in.

Inspiration for my build

Over view of parts etc

Going to start with adapting the pegasus wheels to kit parts,then lower it a bit.
Once thats done il clean up and prep the body for a prime,which should be a good start to the day.

Will post some mock up pics after the ride height is set.

That's gonna be cool Luke :D

I'm a couple of hours ahead of you but have had interruptions this morning.

Got everything primed, painted the blue stripe on the hood/scoop, then realised it would have to be extended to the grill. More masking of the body, but got it done OK.

Quick light sanding and a polish before applying BMF around windows, followed by decals, only one side done so far!

Looks great Paul. Geeze, just as shiney as all of the others you have made. :lol:

I have just washed and sanded down the body of the little Ferrari. Letting the primer setup for awhile here and hope to get the color on her tonight. Will post a couple of pictures shortly.

Taking a break from decals after completing the driver's side. Still need to apply the narrow white stripes near the edges of the blue stripes - these are on the Slixx decal sheet.

Turning now to the engine, which will only be partly detailed. I discovered last night that the block has holes in it for the 'front axle' :huh: and too late to change motors at this late stage.

Onwards and upwards!
