Maserati 3500 GT, 1st out of the gate

Recommended Posts

Out of my comfort zone a bit with this one, opening doors and all, but I'm pleased with how it came out.  The kit is built OOB and the fit a detail are pretty good IMO.  Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

I don't think I've ever seen this model built- nice job! I like  the color. I have one of these that I started a while back. I was kind of surprised at how well molded and engineered it was for a kit that was tooled in '64.

Very nice - difficult to get this kit to look this good.

I really like this car and you did an excellent job on it.

My only question, since no else asked, is will it do 185?

Great job... and I know how challenging it is! Very nice colour combination, and it is such an achingly stylish car to have on the cabinet...

Time to do the DB4 next? ;-P

best,

Very nice! Looks like you got all the opening panels to fit quite well, which makes a huge difference when you see the model all closed up. Excellent job. But i do question the use of a 2x4 as a hood prop. Not very Italian. You might want to scratch something up from wire,

LOL!  I just grabbed a couple toothpicks off the bench for the pictures but you're right, a bit crude in 1/24 scale.

Actually, it's 1:25. The wire wheels are okay, but hard to find better replacements. For those interested in the kit, note that it's the 2nd generation fuel-injected GTi version, though many owners reverted to the Weber carb version. Not a tremendously accurate kit, but the only game in town, and this is as good a box-stock build as you'll find anywhere – just excellent.

Thanks Skip!  I don't know a lot about these exotics under the skin, just that they're about as sexy as it gets on the outside.  I have the DB4 in the stash for the future.

Looks great, love the color. Opening panels are always tough for me. Nice work on these.
