      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I love these wheels....the most beautiful Ferrari has ever done....and your model replicates very well the car....not sure, but I think the same color on the real ones was Mediterraneum Blue....
    Congratulations !!

    Revell Ferrari 360 Modena...
    Hello, guys...
    Kit from Revell AG, rims from Leko Brazil, photoetcheds and cables by Mr. Model, and resin seats made by Denilson, a friend of mine....
    Tried to replicate Grigio Titanium by adding some drops of black inside a silver paint...this is the closest I could do, because pictures not always show the truth.
    Dashboard from kit don´t let the chassis fit properly, so you will need a little patience to correct it...and wheels and brakes need a lot of work to get a decent look...
    Honestly, I recommend you to buy the Tamiya one....
    Even having all these problems, luckily i got a prize at IPMS-Rio de Janeiro....
    Critics and comments are wellcome...

    Very nice, curtis....if you are really going to rebuild it, I think lowering suspensions would give a even better look.
    Congratulations.

    Dan,
    I am building this car but the kit is the old ESCI.....one of the most beautiful cars in the history and your model does justice to it.
    Congratulations.

    Mike, Steve and Dave......thank you.
    Frank, the only extras at the engine are the ignition cables and the grill I used to replace the filter mesh.

    Dann, right now I am building this kit and the reference picture I used is very similar to your model.
    So much coincidence I am also using Tamiya wheels.....stripped original chrome and painted flat silver.....only difference is that I used copper color....by the middle to end of January you will see it around here.
    You did a very nice job....congratulations !! if I´m not wrong you used different mirrors also...original ones are awful.
