Ferrari SA APERTA.. NOW UNDER GLASS 03/10-17

Hi. So i started this kit a couple of weeks ago, and i was in my zone so i forgot to take pictures from the start of the build. (BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH) . But anyway this is what i got so far. i usually always start with the engine or body but this time i started with the interior. i really think i got of to a good start. but thats just my opinion. i will have to make a few touch ups, but nothing major.

 

 

It is a Revell kit scale 1/24

Next was the breaks. I decide to drill them out for a more realistic look. But i dont know how big the effect will be, when the wheels are on.

 

Breaks before

And after

Nice start!  What color are you going to paint the exterior?

Very realistic interior. Are the red stripes a decal ?  The kits wheels are pretty open so any brake detail should stand out.

Hi Bernard. I was thinking that i will go with a perlewhite.

Hi David. Yes the stipes are decals. The stripes came with the kit and it was actually quite easy to make them fit.

Hi Curtis. The paint is Vallejo model air WOOD (71.077) over a grey primer.

Hi guys. So alot has happend this last couple of days. I got around to do the chassis and the engine. I even got some paint on the body.

This build is really coming along nicely. ( in my opinion:)). I hope to finish this in a couple of days, and do a UNDER THE GLASS.

Great job! I love how you went with your own colors and strayed away from the traditional ferrari red.

One question.looking at the very front of the dashboard where it mates up to the windsheild I'm noticing what looks like 4 openings for possibly the defrosters? Not sure if that's what they are but may I suggest dropping some flat black in there?
