I absolutely hated this Revell of Germany Ferrari F430 Spider. It fought me all the way. Just when I thought things were looking good it would rear its ugly head.

Now, I've settled for a shelf model. It will look just fine for my shelf. I need to buy a Fujimi kit.

This was built as my Miami Vice Movie car.
Paint is Grigio Silverstone Metallic by Cobra Colors.
Tamiya paint interior and basic decals from the sheet.

I have to say that what upset me the most was all the work and time I put into sanding mold lines and cleaning the body to only have them pop through the body after I polished the car.

Here are the pics I took. I'll get a few outside pics later.

That car looks sick in that dark metallic silver color. i am getting tired of seeing ferraris i red and yellow and black, this color really 'pops'. I have YET to see the MV movie, I am more of a fan of the tv version, and the car used in it :(.
