Old Monogram kit, 1965. Bought it at the 2019 IPMS kit swap. Classic build, ie, no PE or aftermarket resin. A simple, not particularly accurate kit, but went together well. I find that when I'm struggling to make time for kit building, finding a "low-parts count kit" (20-30 count) helps get me over the motivation hump. Finished with Tamiya primer, Tamiya Ferrari Red spray can & Mr. Hobby clear. Used Bare Metal Foil for chrome.
*Had to* get one of these vintage 1965 Monogram Ferrari 275P kits. No, it's not the gold-plated slot car kit, still wrapped. I've been watching prices on eBay, this one was not an auction, free shipping made it a few bucks less than some others, but still a chunk of change. I was surprised about the skeleton racer face. There are three nasty sink holes under the mounting points. The chrome headlights won't cut it for me. Tires are really flat sheen, but not cracked or brittle, but if I use modern wheel/tires that won't matter. Decals are toast. My plan is to kit bash with a modern Ferrari that has an engine and suspension, tub and seats. So will be scouting for a cheap donor. I'm jonesing to do a resto-rod Ferrari, yea I'm sick.
