Ferrari 348TS

Recommended Posts

 

 


BEFORE ::::::::::::

Found this 1:18 Maisto Ferrari 348TS at a Goodwill store for four bucks.  The windshield was badly scuffed in one place, one front strut broken off and missing as well as both front wheels.  There was no front axle, no steering linkage nor a gear shift lever. Also missing was a windshield wiper, passenger-side mirror and the spare tire/wheel.

AFTER::::::::::::::


Windshield scuff removed with a number of rubbings with toothpaste. A bamboo skewer worked nicely for the missing front strut. Strong wire provided a good steering linkage connection.  Both non-stock replacement front wheels and stock rear wheels were painted flat white. Model was lowered as much as possible.  All wheels roll and the steering linkage moves the steering wheel. Window trim painted black. Engine was painted and detailed some. A fun project.

Thanks for looking....

NICE SAVE!   I have a few like that as well.    I took me a couple looks to notice the replacement wheels that don't match.
