Ferrari F50

Recommended Posts

Some photos of a Ferrari F50 I just completed. This is an old Tamiya kit I finally got around to building.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice Ferrari. It's always nice to see a Ferrari in a color other than Red.

That's a killer finish on this f50!

Thanks! The kit was molded in yellow and I intended to leave it that way;  but when I painted the black on the underside of the engine compartment lid, it visibly showed through the plastic and darkened the appearance of the yellow on the outside. So, I decided I needed to prime it and throw some paint (some shade of yellow from Tamiya) on it to prevent this. Painting it Ferrari red briefly crossed my mind, but I thought that the yellow was more eye-catching. I am glad I stayed with yellow!

Excatly the same thing happened to me! but I made this kit donkey's years ago - and I didn't want to spray it! so mine has a dark shade for the engine cover! your's looks fantastic though. Many people don't like this car, as it's not as visually appealing as teh F40. But I love it! and the GT version was my favourite on Xbox Forza when I had time to game....

Great job! The black line that runs along the length of the body, was this done just by masking tape? I built this model years ago but avoided doing that feature black line as I didn’t really know how to do it properly. It makes the model really stand out tho, well done
