Tamiya LaFerrari

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls

So recently, my son has become obsessed with cars - in particular the LaFerrari and the Aventador. He got a 1/18 LaFerrari for Xmas,  but I remembered that I had the Tamiya one built from a few years ago that was more than a little under whelming in regards to finish. So, after scouring countless pictures with my son, I came across a really nice FXX in blue which I thought would translate nicely to a standard LaFerrari.

It looks way better than when I first did it now. The wheels are from the NSX kit which I had left iver and thought would look pretty cool on this - painted in gold titanium. I lost an exhaust nozzle, so I took one off and cast a replacement in resin. You can't tell the cast one apart except for the chrome is slightly different shade. Not worried about it.

Well, that's the first one off the blocks for 2020. Now my son wants me to repaint the old Aventador kit I gave him in the same colours - which I shall dutifully do for him :)

Anyway, that's it but thanks for looking

Si

Thanks for the kind posts guys. I'm happy with how it looks - so much better than how it first did. Didn't think to take a before picture.

This Color Looks awesome on the LaFerrari! I like Ferraris, which are not red. Beautiful!
