Kitbash of the classic Monogram Ferrari 275P curbside/slot-car, a 1990 reissue of the 1964 kit, and the Revell 360 Modena Spyder that is sort of a curbside since the hood did not open, but had a window over the engine. Work In Progress I found the 275P at a Phoenix model swap last month, then saw the Modena and it was crazy time. Started Tax Day with a mock up, started butchering on the 18th, worked like a dog until the 3rd at Noon, just before heading up to GSL, 132 hours. I did rush it, could have spent a couple of weeks sanding and polishing, and it would probably would have ended up in the box like a few other projects. I just wanted something different than the typical super dooper shiny muscle car on the table. I didn't have time to write a build document, but had this for the description: Blasphemous and sacrilegious kitbash of a historic Ferrari race car that won Le Mans two years in a row, and another Ferrari that only has a 3586 cc 395 HP V8. Story is, this car was found in a chicken coop somewhere in Venezuela, missing the 3285cc 320 HP V12 engine and transmission, the aluminum tub was badly corroded from chicken poop. The Modena was bought at a tax auction, it was rolled by the drug dealer during a police chase. Built by a shop wanting to do a reality TV show, but never got funding because it’s just a Ferrari and not an American muscle car. Some of these pictures were taken at Page on the way home.
Howdy, New here. See http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=83804 Had this one partially complete in the box so decided to finish it in Yellow. Just ordered some ScaleFinishes paints. Never used a basecoat/clear method. I've always used either airbrushed enamel gloss paints (testors MM) or Tamiya TS Sprays to do my cars. Built a new paint booth to replace my old dirty one... Made from leftover 3/4 Melamine and a corrugated plastic backing and baffle. Fan is a 545cfm Dayton blower. I just open the window and trap it in the window when I paint. Haven't even used this one yet. My old one was scraps of decking boards. The white interior makes things much brighter and the baffle should control air flow much better. Never done flocking before. First attempt...kinda so so.... I'll have to practice this some more Parts and pieces The dash needs some touch up. Body will be Ferrari 102 Giallo when it's all done.
