Scale I Build

  1. Unofficial reveal, of the Italeri (Testors) Ferrari 250 GTO Spyder. WIP: Italeri/Testors Ferrari 250 GTO Spyder The factory never built a Spyder of the famous GTO, two cars were coach built on average Ferrari chassis (is there such a thing?). I saw the convertible twice, once in my town when the Copperstate Rally parked downtown, and at a Monterrey Historics. This is not an exact replica, added some features such as the roll bar. I will take better pictures when the weather cooperates.
  2. Because a Facebook group is having a Ferrari theme group build, it lit the fuse to get this done. I've only been wanting to build this 250 GTO Spyder for about 18 years. The pictures I took were in Prescott at a Cooper State rally, and the Monterey Historics 1994 when Ferrari was featured. There isn't much on the web about this particular car. It's not a real GTO for starters. This kit was chosen just because it was a bagged kit (no box), found at a model show. I have 3 other brand kits still in the stash, so I could build a real authentic model, someday. I had decided to build it this year anyway, so it got bumped up in my priority list. Comparison between kits (Fujimi kit was bought after taking this picture): My 2021 Resolutions list: Taking a look before starting: First session, got the body, interior tub, and short block glued together. It's a nice kit, so far everything fit together. Exception is a big gap filled with plastic, not a big deal. The headlight buckets needed some work to fit snug. All joints are lots of superglue with baking soda. Rough cut lines drawn on the body. I might do the whole deck with one piece of sheet styrene.
  3. Guys and Gals...The Pocher kit was a mere 20- 30 parts at best and it looked like a toy when assembled. Therefore I wanted to share what I did to it from a kit with some heavy modifications to attain a sense of realism. I know that a lot of this isn't exact to detail...but 90% of the people wont know the difference but its close...I wanted to capture as realistic as I could. Believe it or not...I used old MacBook Pro and Mac Pro screws, old parts from model kits, parts from a DVD player...Ethernet cables...and bits and pieces from all over to attain something a little different but close to the real engine. I'll post the top of the box so you can see what it was supposed to look like and all that I did...enjoy.
  4. After building a few nearly box-stock Tamiya kits to remember how its done, hone some techniques, and feel the airbrush again, I decided it was time to do another serious, all-out, old-school, superdetail project. Long time ago I have purchased an Airtrax transkit to build a car that I consider one of the most beautiful Ferraris of the late 60’s – the gorgeous 330 GTC. The Beauty Traditional 2-seater coupe 330 GTC (Gran Turismo Coupe) was unveiled at 1966 Geneva autoshow as an additional model to the Ferrari lineup and sloted between 275 GTB (on which chassis it is built) and more upscale 330 GT 2+2. The body was designed and built by Pininfarina. Over the 2-year period through the end of 1968, Ferrari made a total of 598 cars (both RHD and LHD). 330 GTC was considered by many to be the most elegant model in the Ferrari lineup. Beautiful body lines were complimented well by the powerful 12-cylinder engine and nicely appointed luxury cabin with spacious trunk. The car was no slouch and handled great too. The Beast Transkit is very simple, and contains a body, few interior pieces, some external bits, and a fret of photoetched parts. Disclaimer: I’m in no way trying to bash people who made the trasnkit in my following descriptions of the parts and the quality overall – I’m thankful it exists and somebody made it. But I want to be objective so others know what they are getting into. The resin castings are pretty horrible, but overall correct as far as proportions go. Quality of resin casting is pretty bad. Lots of bubbles, uneven and partially lost panel lines, parts that are not completely (fully) cast, and body shell thicker than my finger. Poop. But, nobody did anything better since this was released, so we have what we have. There will be a lot of work to make this look worthy of calling a replica, like fixing bent parts like this: The glass vacuuforms are very vague, the front does not fit. Other parts are not much better, some are just wrong. Just look at the seats…. Luckily, photoetch is of great quality, and will be very useful: That’s all for now. As a base for the model, I will use Italeri 275 GTS kit. There will be obviously any other things and sets used, like wheels, etc. Not decided 100% on the color as of right now. Wish me luck.
  5. I have been building other subjects the last while and not here much. This gets my mojo running so I will post lots about it Here is my first attempt at putting together a Pocher model. Now it is a metal body/ plastic parts from the exotic collection. I can Hear Harry roll over in his grave and Cato's eyes roll back in his head, but here is where I choose to start my Pocherism So, Ferrari Testarossa, semi assembled by nice old guy in States with failing eyesight and health bought about five years ago now. Pretty clean body work and decent interior. Engine not started and a detail upgrade set provided. These are pics in my big woodworkshop as it is 16 pounds and just under 2 feet long. I plan on doing sub assembly work in my model room and put it all together in the big shop. I have an F40 that needs similar treatment and show it in the WIP display shelving for my Pocher collection....a lot messy at the moment
  6. I just received 2 new Ferraris. The SP1 and the SF90 are in 1/24th scale by BBurago. The SF90 Stradale The SP1 Monza
  7. MOTOR AUTHORITY: Ferrari's record-breaking V-12-powered race boat is for sale Dupont Registry: One-of-a-kind: Historic Ferrari Race Boat for Sale Business Insider: This one-off, record-holding boat has a Ferrari race engine and a $12 million price tag — see the 1952 Arno XI Years ago, I saw a resin kit of this boat in a catalog, but didn't have the money to buy one. On a hunch, looked at eBay and saw that several craftsmen are making wood scale models of this boat (picture), in various scales. The engine is from the 375 series, with twin superchargers, still holds the record of 150 MPH (in class). I'm not into boats as a rule, but this one is too cool to not show y'all.
  8. Here’s my Monogram Ferrari 308! It was an early release, sealed, bagged no-box kit from eBay, molded in red. It’s a curbside kit but it goes together great and has some decent detail. This was my first attempt at the Bare-Metal-Foil-before-you-paint-it technique for the emblems, and it didn’t come out great for the deck lid Ferrari script or the side Pininfarina badges. I think I’m still laying my paint on way too thick, so there wasn’t much of a raised script left to strip the paint back off. Anyways, I think it turned out well enough for my shelf, and lessons learned for the next one!
  9. The Ferrari 275 GTB/4S NART Spider was a roadgoing 2-seater spider version of the 275 GTB/4, 10 of which were built in 1967. This model was introduced with a revised four overhead camshaft 3.3 Litre overhead camshaft Colombo V12 engine producing 300 hp. This Italeri 1/24 scale kit has been upgraded with turned aluminium rimmed wire wheels. The kit is an accurate replica and just requires filling of a few injection pins on the underside of the floorpan and replacement of the wire wheels for enhanced realism.

  10. Hey guys, Hope everyone is good. Just finished this ferrari by alpha models and I must say for a resin kit wow what a treat it is to build, it fitted together like an absolute glove, anyone wanting to try out a resin kit for the first time I would highly recommend
  11. Wait... nobody has built this kit? It's been calling me from the stash, "build me, I'm an easy curbside, don't even think about putting an engine, transaxle, suspension in because you'll never finish." I searched and found nothing.
  12. Hey guys, hope everyone is well. After a considerable hiatus Ive got back into the hobby I love, I started this project 2 1/2 years ago and it went in out of the box for that whole time.Finally its finished and feels great after so long to be back. I hope you all enjoy the video its my first in a very long time, but not the last
  13. DISCLAIMER: These kits have been started in 2008 before my accident. Everything that you see in the first few posts will be the work I have completed before the project was shelved. I’m attempting to resurrect the build and hopefully complete these at some point soon, just don’t know if I’m still in shape to actually do it, but what the heck. =================================== The 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 47th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on June 9 and 10, 1979. Ferrari had no chance against mighty Porsches and new BMW M1s, but it did enter several cars in competition. It was Beurlys 512BB LM #61 "EMKA" with its screaming 4.9L Flat-12 driven by Nick Faure, Steve O'Rourke, Bernard de Dryver, and Jean Blaton that showed 12 overall result having completed 274 laps. Today I will build this car in 1:24th, using multimedia kit from Model Factory Hiro. I will be another double-build. The second car will be JMS Racing/Pozzi #63 3M "Cloud Car", which unfortunately DNF after completing 219 laps. Here are couple of pictures of the real cars: The kits are usual MFH detail tour de force, with lots of white metal, turned aluminum and steel, and photoetch. Body is half resin half metal, and lots of other materials used for various parts of the kit as well. I started with cleaning the bodies, but as with all MFH kits, the process will be slow (and painful) because of the amount of cleanup and test-fitting required. You get a lot for your 31500 yen - here is kit contents: As you can see on the following pix, the fit is horrible. I mean - nothing really fits! It looks like some parts came from a different kit! So...I decided to cut it all apart and see if I can put it back together so it fits right! Made templates for the doors Then started hacking into it. Look at the thickness of that thing! Good grief! You know why Hiro kits are so expensive? They use way too much resin :-) LOL! After I cleaned up door jambs a bit I found one positive though - I don't have to build door jambs now - they are thick enough as is, I actually had to thin them down a bit. Door pattern was transferred to sheet brass, then doors were cut out, shaped over the spare body and just by hand, and then meticulously fine-tuned, bent here and there, beaten to shape. Still need some work a bit, but the basic shape is there. Door jambs were cleaned for the doors, and then I started carving the cavity for the doors to go inside the body when they open. After few hours of work, cavities were made, door jambs finished, and part of the hinge made. Then I added hinge to the door skins. It is a very simple but very effective construction that perfectly replicates the way doors opened on the real car. Later on, the entire hinge assembly will be concealed by the inner door frame. This is how the doors fit on the outside: Front lid was sanded and re-shaped until my fingers started bleeding! Had to completely re-do the sides, then thin it down (a lot). That cover needed tons of work. Still need a bit more, but I was at least able to do proper test fitting. Now I need to do the same for the other! Door frames! Still a few tweaks needed here and there, and solder needs to be cleaned up, but basic shape is there. So, this is where it all stopped in 2008. I have not touched this kit since, everything that is to follow will be new stuff. I honestly don’t even know where to pick up the pieces on this, but will assess the situation over the weekend and proceed then. Just wanted to put this up here as a bookmark!
  14. Got this to add to my exotic collection. I always loved the Daytona. It's one of the better looking Ferraris. This kit was a little on the pricey side, but since I got my stimulus I decided to get a few rare kits. I also wanted to go with the coupe to show off the design. For an old Testors kit I have mostly good things to say about it. The kit was actually pretty easy to build and came out great. My only complaint is that it's molded in Red, black, and silver.

  15. Well, everyone, i could not resist starting another car....when you feel motivated this strongly, you gotta go with it, right?! This will be another Uber build for me, and like always, i have some different suprises up my sleeve. What i will tell you now, is that it will be a road car, and it will be semi-gloss white. I spent hours, and hours trying to find detailed photos of the engine, and suspension, but couldnt find that much, so i will do my best with what i did find. I started off by doing as many pre-assembly things i could, and filling seams. I havent started sanding yet, but later today, i will have photos of all those bits.

    Ferrari FXX-K

    After starting this in August ,I can call this one done . Tamiya kit. Color is Tamiya pure white with a silver under base. I use silver on these cars because the paint lays down thin. Carbon is from Scale Motorsports and the new Tamiya carbon decals. There a little thick but dry with a gloss finish. Details are from the Hobby Design detail kit.

    Ferrari Enzo

    Hi Guys, I built this Enzo a while back. Had a detail kit I think it was Hobby Design plus a number of scratch built parts. Total part were 550+ I changed the wheels out, I wanted a firmer look with the Bugatti Veyron as an inspiration. I was never mad keen on the Enzo but I thought with a more modern colour it was actually a really nice car Let me know what you think
  18. Heres the kit that everyone loves to bash for the littlest reasons...mostly for the square rear end. I agree its not right, BUT it doesnt look UGLY either. Instead of fixing it, i decided to just call it a kit car, of which are actually a popular subject. I will do it curbside, as a fun, quick build. The body is ready for decals, and clear, and the interior/chassis assembly is now ready for paint! -Photo 2-4; This is all one mass of pre-assembly...
  19. Hi!, this is my Fujimi Ferrari F40LM. I wanted to change it to a barely street legal car, so I cut-off the front defuser, detailed the headlamp assemblies with indicators, filled-in the rocker vents, SB a stock wing, and ditched the LM wheels and tyres, for a set of Tamiya stock ones. The engine bay is detailed, as is the interior, with an added seat.
  20. WIP: Italeri - Ferrari 275 GTS (Spyder N.A.R.T.) Started October 1, 2019, finished March 11 after over 186 hours. A decent kit to begin with, other than truck tires which ended up on my '69 Chevy pickup. ? Opened the doors and trunk, painted with nail 'polish', many scratch-built parts added. Not an exact replica of the Thomas Crown Affair car which had the alloy wheels. Woman is a Shapeways product. Diorama is California Pit Stop, the California Spyder is the focus of that project, but have been utilizing for a studio. My studio, was waiting for an overcast and not breezy day. ?
  21. Ferrari 275 GTS by Italeri, labeled as the Spyder N.A.R.T. I got this years ago at a local r/c hobby shop that didn't last long, for about $15, I didn't have to think twice about it. Even though I have three WIP started last century, this has been staring at me from the stash. It has got to be the sexiest Ferrari, close second is the 250 GTO which was vying for my attention. My plan is to improve a few things, not go overboard (famous last words). First to go are the horrid truck tires, have a decent set from the horrid Aoshima VW Beetle kit that fit the nice wire wheels, are lower profile and most likely wider than correct, but looks much better. The windshield frame has a broken post, so will embed a steel wire, in both, to make stronger and give a chance of adjustment if required. Looks easy to make the wheels steerable. The headlights are a pet peeve, the center pin in the lens and flat reflector are getting fixed (taillights are similar but just the pin removal should work). I'm seriously thinking of opening the doors, will add steel plates to the chassis and sill before cutting, the door panels are separate so it begs to be done. Plug wires and radiator hoses will *have to* be added. I've collected some cool aftermarket emblems and parts over the years, so even though the decals are nice, that's a *have to*. Have the pearl dark red nail 'polish' picked out. If I'm feeling really ambitious, will vacuum form headlight covers. Started today with the basic assembly of the engine and transaxle, suspension, and other things that are two parts. It's decent quality, needs some mold line scraping, a few parts have flashing, but parts fit really well. I used Testors tube and Flex-i-file liquid glue for steps so far, exception is the rear body where the beautiful spoiler lip could be melted, so used superglue. Also used Squadron putty to fill minor ejection pin marks. Need to think about stance, lowering just 1 mm would help.
  22. Hey guys Just got back into modeling and have a few projects. I was looking to trade the Ferrari Spyder and or the helicopter model for box of some random parts. Haven't built a full kit in years so I don't have a box of junkyard extra parts yet.?lol . Let me know what you want to trade for. Also open to kits . Let me know whatever you have .also in need of a beginners airbrush if anyone has one they don't want! Thank you ?
