Fujimi Lamborghini Veneno

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

For the first time in about a year I'm starting a new kit. This is also the first time I am posting on a forum, so keep that in mind.

I got myself the full engine kit of the Veneno (very hard and expensive to come by in Germany)

My hopes are maybe a few tips, a few people who like to stick around and maybe someone I can talk model stuff with :)

My skills are rusty and never been a pro. The kit will be hand-printed...no spray cans or airbrush (no location)

Welcome!  You are taking on an ambitious project out of the gate!  What do you mean by "full engine kit"?  I see there seems to be a Fujimi kit with engine as an option.  I ask because I have bought other brand engines for kits that never had a full engine.

Several on eBay for whoever is interested.

Yeah, I have seen the instructions and the body...it's going to be very tough with all the separate parts and hard edges. In the picture is part of the engine. As far as I know the standard kit has a one piece tub with parts of the engine moulded  itno it. That's what I meant with full engine. Started work on it and the brakes. They look really nice (just from the front)… first time I know of a manufacturer making the calipers that detailed and realistically sized!

Thank you for the clarification.  I wish you the best, and hope you have patience stashed somewhere.  Doing all those edges in red will be fun!

I'm not sure about the colours I'm going to use. Still deciding. All I know is, that it's not going to be silver/gray with red.

You have to paint a lot of the body parts separately and glue them painted. Otherwise you'll have so many hard or impossible spots. Hope when I get that far into the build it all turns out fine

These kits, and a lot of Aoshimas have what I like to call; a 3/4 engine, having just enough parts that if detailed with paint, wire, and hoses, can actually look pretty real.

Yes! My new paints arrived. Now if only I could order free time... :P

Atleast I can now make up my mind on body colour.

Wow, Revell still makes those tins?

I really hope you reconsider at least spraying the body. Don't know if you will be able to achieve good finish by brush painting.

These things are super fragile...just getting them out and cutting the rough edges broke 2...
