  1. Turned out absolutely fantastic! Great pictures too!
  2. I would shoot some flat clear over those seats. Looks great otherwise!
  3. Test fit a lot with this kit. Very problematic fit on some assemblies. Good luck!
  4. Yup, its a cool little kit. I enjoyed building mine.
  5. I know right? The openings are for the "hotter" engine that was installed into 365 GTC. 330 GTC still had old Colombo-designed double-cam design, and as such - no louvers to "cool" it. Yup, that's about 3 hours of making it fit Thanks!
  6. Ok, all these posts above made me get this out of the box and fiddle with it a bit over the weekend - that s until we lost power and almost froze to death here in Texas. Aaaaanyway... Got most of the interior parts to fit together, more or less: IMG_7710 by Italian Horses, on Flickr IMG_7711 by Italian Horses, on Flickr Not only that - but also worked a bit on making everything fit nicely inside the body as well: IMG_7713 by Italian Horses, on Flickr IMG_7714 by Italian Horses, on Flickr IMG_7715 by Italian Horses, on Flickr IMG_7716 by Italian Horses, on Flickr Everything lines up nicely now, which is good. Still need to adjust the chassis relative to the body a bit - my axles are not entirely centered in the arches.

  7. Very cool. I have never actually done a vacu-form, but for simple parts plastic can be literally just stretched over a buck.
  8. Great start, I might pick this kit up at some point.
  9. Hey Bill, ambitious is the right word, and I feel like my ambitions are biting me in the a$$ right now, as I don't have time and slowly loosing steam on this. Hopefully I will persevere. Thanks!
  10. At least your copy of the kit has the wheels and glass parts. Mine didn't come with either. Its...not the best kit even by garage-resin standards.
  11. Haha, that actually looks pretty cool. I believe the back of the car on the drawing is not an SWB, more like 250 TdF Berlinetta, but SWB would still work! I have not touched models since summer. No time, sorry
