I bought this kit thinking I didn't have it. Then I found it completed, lurking in the back of my display case. Rather than sell it I hunted down an alternate set of decals to do a different livery although it is still a Martini in keeping with my theme. While I was at it, might as well get the carbon fibre set for it too. Below are the results of some intensive decal and detail work. See captions under the pictures for add details. It was fun to re-visit this kit. Thanks for looking and comments welcome. Completed engine and front suspension. That carb tray was 7 seperate decals. All the carbon fibre work done and most of the detail painting. Colour on the body is Gravity Colors Ferrari Nuovo Rosso (GC294mc) 2k clear was used over this. Interior complete, I added some wires the rest is stock with carbon detailing and painting. Completed model on its wheels. Those Martini stripes down the side had to go over a lot of contours. St27 decals are great and respond well to solvent and heat. It was almost fun to do even though it took 3 days. Rear veiw of the car shows its aggreessive nature. Side view. I chose to use magnets to hold the hood in place. The hood clip is a piece of electronic wire from a resistor. Its functional. Front clip fit the chassis well but there is still an annoying gap where the hood fits. At least it doesn't fall off every time you pick it up thanks to the magnets. Decided to take a shot of the undertray since there was some nice detail there. I left it clear. Note the four jeweler screws. These were necessary as the tray wouldn't stay in place other wise. Had to take a photo of both of them. Now to figure out a way to display them together in the case. Its kinda full.
