    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 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.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    I've had it happen to two cans of Testors.

    I'd just say "Full Scale".

    The work bench is packed up at the moment. Had to tear down some walls in the house so put everything away to keep it safe. Hopefully be back at it in about a month.
    I was moving stuff around in the basement tonight and really wanted to sit at the bench and do a little work!

    Oh yeah, this will be in my stash when it comes out! Goofy tires and all!

    Ferrari F40 - Fujimi
    Finally made some progress on this build just in time to pack up the bench in preparation for more house construction.
    It's a pretty nice kit so far. Lots of prep work on the body. It's solid but lots of seam lines to clean up. I'm also filling in the extra vent on the side of the engine cover.
    Most progress was made on the interior. The dash and seats were masked, sprayed with textured trunk paint, then painted.
    The dash was painted Testors Panzer Gray and then a light mist of Battleship Gray. Photo etched pedals from one of my many F40 detail sets.

    The seats were painted Testors Italian Red, detailed, then coated with Flat Clear. The decals were taken from an unused F40 kit in the stash. Also sanded down the shift gate detail and added a photo etched piece after the texture and paint.

    Once the house is done being taken apart and put back together I'll get back to this build!

    This is awesome!

    Whooooo! Look at all those parts! Very excited to follow along as you build this. Your engine assembling looks good so far, keep it up.

    Man! I got a blue one in the works and your's is making me shy to show it. That color looks like it's going to be awesome once detailed!
    The interior and engine look great as well. Love the color combo in the interior.
  10. Toast added a post in a topic Nissan Skyline GTR R32 V spec II, Fujimi 1/24   

    That was awesome!
    The patience it took to do such a nice job and still remember to document all the steps animated is amazing!
  11. Toast added a post in a topic White Ferrari F40   

    Word! These cars looks so cool in colors other than red and yellow. I don't know why you don't see many kits done up in other colors.
    Your build is spot on and the details are solid. Great job!
  12. Toast added a post in a topic Fujimi's Ferrari F40LM Storm   

    Love F40s! The color you chose looks great on it. The mix of LM style for the street is really cool.
    Very nice work.

    I didn't take as many as I usually do. Was a little more busy this year and didn't get to walk around as much.
  14. Toast added a post in a topic Tamiya Ferrari 360 Spider   

    That's a really nice kit! The sprues can be a little intimidating.
    Can't wait to see your progress. 
  15. Toast added a post in a topic "General Ferrari" Charger/Enzo hybrid   

    This will be fun to watch! Very cool concept. I like your progress so far. 
    Adding to what Espo said, you could set up the rear vents for brake or rear-end cooling.
