Model factory hiro ferrari 275 competizione

22 January 2012 - 07:52 AM

Hi guys!
i bought this kit a few years ago i stored for a while until i get enough time to work with

let's start with the chassis .as you can see the rough material of the parts made this kit a little dessapoint one but with a little patience and work with the correct tools it will look great.,all the details are there but they are hidden by a little rough film that is the mold release powder,this type of powder is used to make easy to remove the part from the rubber mold so a little sand and file will remove it ,some of the parts doesn't mold well in the spin cast process so those parts needs more attention and some fill with white epoxy

almos all of the parts were aligned prefectly and drilled to pre assemble the chassis to see if have any issues ,and i found a lot,this cause a assembly problems and poor fit of the parts causing a poor appeareance , :blink:

i started this model two years ago but its still in the same way that you can se here in the picture.,i am working in other kits ,this is ready to adjust some parts and work on the body panels and interior.i assembled all th car first to check any fit issues.,since these kitas are made in a rubber and silicone molds they tend to warp in the process of removing from molds

Model Factory Hiro 1953 ferrari 500 f2 update 2

16 September 2011 - 02:35 PM

Hi Guys!!
This is my latest model kit .,i've been working on it for around two years and it took to me a lot of effort to build it
all the chassis was welded ,filled ,sanded ,primed and painted with automotive paints.,Scalefinishes.com supplied the correct paints for the chassis and body .,i fabricated some scratchbuilt parts such as the instrument panel made from styrene and the screws are from Hobby design.,
This kit is a reissue of the original 1953 500f2 but in 1/20 scale from hiro.only 70 kits were made but you can get one by special order .The only difference is the resin body.,all those type of kits are very difficult to clean ,align and modify to fit well.

here the chassis before i start to work with
