Fully detailed Pagani Huayra...Final checklist items!

Recommended Posts

Beautiful work. Pagani's have been one of my favorite cars since the zonda.

I'm really enjoying the quality of the paint application and the colors you have chosen. Because the paint is smooth the surfaces scale, and the color choices strike just the right balance between dramatic contrast and the subdued realism of real-life colors. The textures and levels of gloss are on the money. Are you really doing this all with rattle cans?

The key to Pagani's success, I've believe, is that they have always made sure that, despite the astronomical market price, the buyer always knows what they are getting, no matter how or where they look - Pagani highlights all the detail of every sub-assembly through uncompromising choices of finishes and colors. They celebrate the materials and techniques used to create the car. You are doing the same thing in scale. Some may consider these cars garish and overdone, but they are distinctly unique, and escape the blob-like sameness of too many luxury cars these days. At some point it would be great to know more about the colors and paints you have chosen - for example the gold used on the suspension parts, and the handsome brown used in the interior.

Thanks for taking us along for the journey. This is an inspiration and a guide for my future build of this model.

Wow!, thanks, Bernard!!  -Yes, it is all rattle cans! Give me a couple days, and I will give you an in-depth list of my colors, Primers, and how, and what order they were applied.......that is SUPER important here.

just an update, it seems I have gotten Type A Influenza, so I haven't been able to work on the Pagani lately. Hopefully soon, though.

Thanks, Scott!!....i'm a lot better now. I got my Stig from Hiro Boy. Hobby Design makes it, but couldn't find it on their site, so I had to get it from Hiro Boy. The picture I took, doesn't do it justice. It comes with two heads/helmets, three visors, and the decals needed to replicate Ben Collins' uniform, or Michael Schummacher, which is who I like.

I've had a really productive day today!  Scratchbuilt; coolant pipes/hoses, fuel pump heat shield, and something that is on the very top of the engine in between the inter-coolers -I have no clue what it is, but it has two wires coming out of it, and I still have to paint its housing flat black. I also scratchbuilt the two different kinds of heat shields behind the turbos.....more wiring to come!!
