      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

Revell LaFerrari

Recommended Posts

At 99% complete, I present my LaFerrari from Revell.  Throughout the build the paint gave me trouble, tearing off in sheets once prompted a respray; then spots which left me a bunch of touchup. I used decanted auto paint, as I have several times before, not sure what went wrong.  The model went together nicely on multiple test fits, from bare plastic, to a test a few hours before the final assembly and all went fine. Final assembly did NOT go easy though.  I still have a few places that need to be tacked down.  On the plus side, I love using railroad screen, stuff looks much better than the clear pieces and decals provided. I bare-metal foiled the "Ferrari" scripts on the intake, but you can barely see them with the engine tucked under there.  But, hey, I now have all the Ferrari supercars from the 288 GTO through this one.

With my builds I usually set them aside a few weeks, then go back and fix all those things that a clear mind can see.

 

Enjoy!
