Finished the dashboard, made a custom floor mount for the accel pedal, working on the floormats right now. Dash is glued in.

Kept seats out for these to show details:

Completed photos of the interior tub. Floormats were done like the dash and F40 was handpainted by me. Shifter was scratchbuilt from a straight pin and a stainless rod.

Seats just need the harnesses.

Thank you Bill.

I wanted to do the Cavallino horse with a decal but it didn't work out so I did the F40 instead......I'm glad I did in the end.

That is really shocking. It's a shame that the Tamiya 1:24 kit has this one beat hands-down in detail. You're doing some amazing work turning this into an accurate replica!

Thanks Jason! Yeah I  wish that this was like a Tamiya in quality too!

This is an awesome build.

 

I'm pretty floored so many people have sat in/driven/have relatives who own F40s. I've seen one. Once. Going the opposite way in trafic. On a very large bridge.

 

I was a Jaguar tech at a high end dealer. we had one in for a day or two. I have been lucky enough to drive some of the best performance cars in the world. It would have been more, but I couldn't fit in some. 

 

The Lotus Exige was by far the most fun. If I had money, that's the first car I'd buy.

Nice work!

Really like how the seats turned out.

 

I painted for a Ferrari dealer back early 90's.

We got one in stock for a short time before it sold.

It was a big deal when it arrived.

The dealership hosted an exclusive, catered champagne sunday brunch for the employees, where we could examine the car in detail & at our leisure.

Very impressive machine!

Thank you Ray! I am really enjoying your scratch build as well!

 

I would have loved to be one of you guys back then!! One of my all time favorite exotics.

Yep, & what a positively bad-assed sounding engine when they did the start-up on it. 

Such beautiful music almost brought tears to my eyes.

If Tamiya ever does a 1/12 F-40, I'm selling everything I can to get it.

It would be SO refreshing to build a large Tamiya kit but the price tag ($300-$400) is usually what scares me away from their larger ones. I know that they are nowhere near the price of Pocher Rivarossi F40 kits but hard to justify that kind of coin for a display piece. (at least at this time.)

It would have to be something I'm really interested in. I don't really care for the Enzo or Carrera GT. If they keep going like this, I expect the 288 GTO to be their next 1/12, which I am interested in. 

 

 

Your build is coming together very nicely.
