Stunning indeed from what you started from.

As mention POCHER took the easy way back in the late 80's with their Testarossa/F40/Porsche kits...way simpler to assembled &.,.way less detailed then former legendary Classics car kit series, guess to broden their market share ;)

Amazing work...hope kool Sassy likes it!

Did I read that you plan to put this masterpiece in storage ? That doesn't seem right. You can send it to me and I will give it a good home. I will even "pop" for the shipping ! : )

Awesome work Romell. I guess whenever you have to check for detail accuracy you just go out to the garage to look at the real thing, right? Ha. I'm following your build. Great stuff. I see Revell Germany is coming out with the 599 GTO. I've got to get one.

Rommel; that's amazing!! I had no idea that there was a model kit out there with that kind of detail. You're doing fantastic, putting it all together. There's just so much detail!!

Thanks Ken but I dont think there is a kit out there with this much detail , im building this kit with the help of the "Autograph Trans Kit" without this trans kit this model is basically a (very exspensive) diecast toy. :lol:

Thanks fellas.....

With the F40 being my favorite super car of all times I always felt she looked her best not in Ferrari red or yellow but in BLACK, a dark glossy black! So now it time to get some paint on the body so guess what color I'll be spraying this beauty? You guessed correctly , Black.
So i gave her metal body one last sanding and warmed up the ol air brushes and got busy....I hope you enjoy the pics.....

body taken down to bare metal

Posted Image

now add a lil primer
Posted Image

and some black paint .....clear coat will be added later....
Posted Image

notice I cut the vents out on the body.....
Posted Image

I'll have more for ya soon....
