    Very nice model. That looks like the same color as the Carrera Panamericana 1950 winner's color. I plan on building mine in CPA colors. It's really a shame Bill L. didn't get to see this model completed. He was the one who thought up putting PanAm decals in the kit along with Ed Sexton.

    Ferrari Expo 2012 is only 2 short weeks away. If you are an advanced modeler looking for a show with a high quality model contest to compete in please drop by.
    We have people from the east and west coast along with Mexico and Canada also dropping by to enter sportcar/racecar models at the show. You will be happy you came.
    All sportscar/racecar manufacturers are welcome, not just Ferrari's.


    Show hours are 9AM-4PM Saturday March 17th 2012 at Continental Autosport Ferrari/Maserati in Hinsdale, Illinois.


    Here is a link to one of the builders that is coming. Joe is from New Jersey. The model shown is 1/43rd, but all scale models are welcome as long as they are handbuilt by the person entering.

    Great looking model for that price. I think Revell has really gotten the glass fit down to perfection. I think the first Revell kit I built with the new style windows was the Ferrari California in 1/24th scale and they worked perfectly.

    Revell is really starting to make very nice kits. I just finished the Ferrari Cali 1/24th kit, and the parts were well thought out and assembly very easy.
    I built it for the Ferrari Expo 2010 coming in April.
