    Persevere Dante it looks ok when finished and I believe this kit is one of the best of a bad bunch for this car, still beautiful motor and I agree the kit design is not great.
    Any chance of seeing your progress?

    ferrari 250 gto
    hello chaps. here is the completed revell ferrari 250 gto 1/24. now ive seen a few of these on the forums so i decided to try to get creative, i'm not one for dios but i thought why not! so my idea was to use as much of the kit as possible IE: kit (doh), spru's, box and odds and ends from the spares box. so the saying out of the box means box aswell. the base is made from the flat cardboard side and clued in the corners. the cobble stones are cut up box and theres over 500 on that little space AHHHHHH! not my brightest moment. the curb is a piece of polystyrene covered with larger bits of box to try to represent flag stones. the lamp post is a bit of sprue bent and bits added at the base and top, the actual lamp is clear spru clued together and sanded then some white clue to age it a touch. the round bit at the top is a drive sprocket from a 1/35 tiger tank cut and shaped with some aircraft wheels on the top for deco. normal hairspray weathering for the rust and some staic grass for effect. pleased how this came out. hope you enjoy it lads and lasses. this was fun. anyone up for the challenge id love to see the results. martin.

    Thanks gentleman for the comments it's much appreciated.
    I made the skyline for my son it's sits on his bedside table and no one is allowed to go near it, even me.
    Circa boy the cal sonic skyline is the tamiya kit GTR r34 yours is the newer one I think and has some nice curves good luck with the kit but watch the decals there fragile or mine were. Any pictures of your build?

    thanks for all the compliments guys, the wood on the dash is just paint effect very easy to do with practice, as for the polishing i'm still learning the cobra has not been polished it is just klear gloss so im still very envious of the finishers i see on the forum, some day i might take the plunge with the polishes i have seen used on some of the finished models.
    thanks again.
    ill post some other pics of cars for your critical eye.

    hi im new too the forum so i thought would post something i have just finished, not up to some of the standards you guys are setting on here but im pleased with the out come.
    thanks for looking.

    very few of the kits decals were used on this, it has a custom colour paint job with peralex added which really sparkles in the sun light. lots of bits added, ht leads all the chrome was stripped and replaced with alcad chrome, the stripe is finished in a satin finish, carpet is flocking sprayed dark sea grey and the standard seat belts made from tamiya tape and PE buckles.
    hope you like and thanks for looking.
