Princess de Rethy Ferrari 330 GTC Speciale

Plug, made from epoxy putty,  for vacuum forming the rear window. I squish it into the opening, then carve and sand it to shape.

I didn't know this car existed until you started this project. I think it's the most beautiful of all the road-going Ferraris.

Always inspiring to watch a master working, someone who has the old-school sculptural skills as well as CAD and 3D printing capability.

Fine, fine, fine.

Fits well but needs some refining around the edges.

Time to make the bumpers. I'm using what is called high density urethane. It's not high density unless you compare it to styrofoam. I have since gotten some renshape which is twice as dense  and will be better suited, but a bit  harder to work.

A light coat of gray primer to sand and refine the body.

Fantastic work on this. What is the material you are using to sculpt the rear end?

I used what is called high density urethane. But it is high density only in relation to styrofoam, it is actually not very dense. The reason that I'm using it is I was never able to find any reasonably priced Renshape on ebay; until recently. I'm now using the Renshape on another project and it's much superior. Don't use this urethane, I've found finger nails will mar the surface.
