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.
Finally decided to dust off my little work table, shake off some of this old rust and get busy! Right around the 1st of the month I ordered 3 different kits that I'd set my sights on from my favorite on-line supplier, and low and behold, there was a knock knock on the door friday morning and there he was....the good 'ol UPS guy handing me a package that absolutely made my day! There they were, the Ferrari Enzo, FXX-K, and the Ferrari F1 2001, all Tamiya 24th scale with the exception of the F1 in 20th scale. Yes, it was a dream come true for this wildman~**~ Anyhoo, to keep this entry from becoming a lengthy novel, I've decided to do the FXX car first, I guess for a lot of reasons. From the minute I began unboxing this masterpiece, it was very obvious that I had a pretty darn complex build there in front of me plus I just love how this car looks, and the background on it is pretty impressive as well. This will be the first time I've done a WIP on-line, and my first attempt (ever) at a project this detailed, but I've done some background research and collected plenty of photo reference- hopefully this helps me along the way! I didn't go overboard on the aftermarket detail stuff on this car, but got a middle-of-the-road PE kit from Crazy Modeler and the carbon fiber decal set from Tamiya. I'm intent on taking it slow, and hope that I can turn out an end result that does this bad boy the justice it deserves. I am very aware that this particular forum is absolutely loaded with some of the most accomplished and skilled craftsmen one could ever hope to encounter, so if you have ANY advice, suggestions or tips you don't mind sharing as I embark on this journey, not only will they be welcomed, but very much appreciated as well!! Thanks guys, and look forward to your comments!
