Ferrari FXX K with Hobby Design Super Detail Set

Recommended Posts

Not much progress, but I did start by fitting the PE pieces to all the body work and making sure I make all the mods I need to first. 

not sure how often I'll get to work on it. I do have my new (5th) modeling space mostly set up. Still some work to go, but it's functional. I wanted to keep going on my 29 Ford and 911 GT1, but I don't have the spray booth fully functional and setup. Until I can make the time (with a lot noise) to drill the holes in the wall for the vents, i won't be able to paint. I am in the garage now, due to our new baby due in March taking over the last room of the house where I had everything. Can't paint in the garage without a booth because the vapors go right through the attic and into the house. Pregnant women are incredibly sensitive to odors

Anyway, I'll post better pics when it's 100% finished, but here's my new space. 





now for the model 




Hobby Design set








Center piece from the kit. Outside pieces are PE. Still need to ass the trim pieces and brackets when ready

I like your workshop, too!

I've seen these super-detail parts for sale, so it'll be interesting to see how you get along with them.

Same here. But I'm really anxious to get started on this.

Thanks guys. This won't be a fast progressing build, but I'll do what I can, when I can. I doubt I'll get time today, but maybe tomorrow night

Acu-Stion shock set. It's a shame they won't really be seen when this is done, but I couldn't help myself. Had to chop the tops of the kit shocks off and migrate them to the new ones.

Not sure if I will keep these the way they are, not happy with the hubs. Centered the discs on some putty on a dremel and spun them with some coarse sanding sticks. Then did a black wash, then buffed the rotor faces with a rigid swab. Then did a light coat of Alclad Smoke, enough to get color, but little enough to leave the metallic rotor finish

Lots of filling and sanding on the body parts. Lot's of pieces to glue together to make the single panels. Not everything needed to be filled as it all won't be seen when done, but I took the opportunity to practice. 

 

the last 4 pics show where i taped up the door panels to the door skins so I could fit the 3rd piece, the end of the door, which is the same color as the body. Then I removed the door panel so it could be painted separately. Finally ready for primer

WoW. Awesome. I like the discs man, I think they look like ceramic discs. The detail sets are looking good. Looking forward to more.

Lee, here is the full set. I just bought the shocks, filler cap set and LED brake light sets

I'm still building. I started other projects in between, like the F430 Challenge and R34 GTR, but about the same progress on both. New baby and owning my own business doesn't allow for much build time. All the body pieces are ready for paint and I have a bunch of other pieces in primer, so next progress should be significant

What filler and sanding stick brands do you use please?

All your PE work looks awesome, are you using superglue, if so, what brand?

Cheers!

Just the Tamiya white filler putty in the tube. The sanding sticks are from several places. Some are Flexi File which I really do not care for. They sand fine, but fall apart. My favorites, I think I used to get from Hobby Linc: https://www.hobbylinc.com/cgi-bin/pic.cgi?t=pics_user_gallery&item_i=79381&pic_user_i=124612&pic_pic_i=12185

And my other favorite are the fat oners with one side with 2 rough grits and the other side with 2 polishing grits. They come as a gift from Scale Hardware, but I haven't bought from them since they changed hands, so not sure if they still offer them

I copied some ideas from Randy Ditton, I even ordered the same fittings from the Train store. I realize how much work he put into his details and I won't be getting that crazy, but some extra detail that will be seen when the model is finished will be nice. 
I started with these cooler lines that go up and over the back of the tranny and into  the R/H cooler. I have to add hose clamps now, which have always been a nightmare for me.
