Hi guys, I am new at modeling cars as I am an aircraft modeler, well at least I have not done one for at least 40 years. I have started on the Revell Ferrari 612. I got as far as the engine and then I did not like some of my masking on the plenum so am doing it over again. I am posting my pics to hope to get some tips from you guys>

 

Here are some photos of the engine OOB before I resprayed the plenum:

 

I was not finished painting the red parts and that is why I started over on this part.

I have gotten the engine complete. Also the body has been primered in Tamiya grey primer and wet sanded. I will give it a coat of white primer tomorrow as I am going to paint it red. Do you guys paint interior body things like headliner etc. before or after painting the exterior color?

I love this car! Can't wait to see more progress. I've built it three times and recall that it goes together really well.

Looking absolutely fantastic so far, you may have to adjust the ride height, some of these Revell Ferraris; are inclined to sit a bit too heigh on the suspension, other than that they are great kits.

Geoffrey, I paint my headliners and any other areas that need to be painted in the interior after the body has been painted, it's usually the last thing I do prior to assembly of the body and chassis.

 

Great job on the re-work of the top of the engine, it looks great! I would show you a picture of the engine in my 612, but it's not quite the same,,,,

I got some color on it. It is my first time painting with a rattle can and it is a bit different than using an airbrush. It is not perfect or should I say I wish it came out a bit better, but I can live with it.
