"The Stig Collection" -Ferrari California Spyder

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!, this is my Italeri Ferrari California Spyder. A lot of people don't like Italeri, or Testors-Italeri, but apart from slightly brittle plastic, and a million ejection pin marks, they have some great details and textures! I would build one any day over an AMT, REVELL, Monogram, or Lindberg!  Its fully detailed, and has Fujimi wheels n tyres, and seats from my spares bin. The carbs are SB from many bits of styrene.

I like the Testors/Italier kits. I built so many as a kid and still have most of them. I'd like to redo them now that I have more patience but it's hard to justify the redundancy. Great work as usual Dann.

Simply beautiful.  I really like what you did with the seats, very convincing look of leather.

I,ve only got 15 completed models over 35+ years of building, and I've built around 100. I redo my builds all the time, and get rid of the old ones....lol

Very nice build Dann. Did this kit include hood hinges?

Thanks, Jason!, yes it did, but I had to make mine from aluminum when the plastic ones broke on me.

Outstanding!  And  you chose a color other than red for a Ferrari and it looks really good.

Good looking car! I didn't even know Testors made model kits. Might have to look into getting one. Also, gotta ask, how did you do the seats? Those look more realistic than most I've seen, if not all.

Thanks, Michael! The testors kits are reboxed  Fujimi, Italeri, Maybe even ARII, and others..I cant remember where I got the seats from, but I had to cut the headrests off them. As you know, seats like these are hard to find.

This is the first one I've ever seen built. I like it a lot! Especially with those wheels. 

Now that I know how it looks finished, I've got to build mine. And I know how I want it to look....

I thought it was internationally illegal to paint a Ferrari in any other color besides red!
