    Ford GT-40 Mark II #98
    Just another model a friend had started, gave it to me and I finished it.
    Body was already painted, decals were shot...replaced with a set from "Pattos Place".
    Picked up the "Historic Racing" Ford V8 conversion kit from another one of my modeling buddies.
    This is a model of the Ford GT-40 which won the 1966 24 hours at Daytona Beach driven by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby.

    I built a model of this car about 20 years ago.
    The flairs were not that difficult, the hardest part was the full length front bumper.
    At that time models of the 1970 Camaro only had the split bumper.

    Good Luck

    Volvo 850 Turbo Estate - Really!
    While cleaning out the model cupboard, I came across a number of cars I had started and never got back to.
    Time to finish them or chuck'em...!
    I know I must started this Volvo Wagon from Tamiya at least 20 years ago.
    No idea where my head was at, but I threw in a Fujumi accessory kit in as well.
    This car was so close to being done, I had to finish it.
    Posting it for your enjoyment, then it will grace the pages of eBay.

    Hey Buddy
    I know you have threatened to build a Ferrari for sometime. 
    Good to see you are following through.
    This is not a bad kit to start with...the Fujumi 250 Testarosa is an excellent kit, but I agree on doing the SWB first.
    Gonna have fun watching ya build a couple of Ferraris.
    c'ya
