    Thanks all.
    The roof is Tamiya Light Gun Metal. Its the light reflection that gives it a red tint. I kind of like it

    The Red body is Tamiya Ferrari red.

    Another Red Ferrari
    Its my first Ferrari so it had to be red.
    Build from Revell of Germany kit. Beautiful kit, all parts kit amazing.
    Box stock accept for some engine wiring and Aluminum drive shaft and axles (that cant be seen).

    All comments welcome. I have a green one in the works as well so i want it to come out even better.










    Thank you to everybody on this site for some amazing tips, trick and inspiration.

    Remember kids "Never drink and scale model"

    Cheers

    Beat Up F250
    This is my first attempt at rusting and making a beat up model. Just started this yesterday. Working on the body and bed first. I plan on adding a proper hitch and making a trailer to haul my Ferrari 599 GTO
    Still in the minor stages, but if you have tips/advise on better rusting. Please post up. Critique comments always welcome

    Using this weathering kit


    I wanted a spray in bed liner. Model Master Fabric spray has a great texture for this. I only had gray, so i then sprayed over it in F Black. The Aluminum bars are the beginnings of a tire rack.



    A little "bondo" on the fender for realizum


    Rust is eating this thing away






    Thanks for looking
    Cheers

    The original kit was a bit better. Plastic was a bit better and stronger. Decals suck though
    Very nice kits to work on though

    Thanks again for all the compliments. This was my first attempt at weathering anything. I was very happy with the way the engine/engine bay turned out.
    Not happy with the exhaust on the black one. Sometimes less is more and i over did it

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Thanks,
    Built a teal and red one years ago. Just don't like the teal colour that much. I've had the red kit sitting in a box since 98 when i had originally planned to build a set in all 3 colours but never finished.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    2 93 Mustang Cobras
    Build these just recently. First attempt at heat staining the exhaust that turned into weathering lol
    Yes i know the red is not correct but i just wanted a bit of a change.
