Italeri: Ferrari 275 N.A.R.T. - Thomas Crown Affair

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

WIP:  Italeri - Ferrari 275 GTS (Spyder N.A.R.T.)

Started October 1, 2019, finished March 11 after over 186 hours.  A decent kit to begin with, other than truck tires which ended up on my '69 Chevy pickup😅  Opened the doors and trunk, painted with nail 'polish', many scratch-built parts added.  Not an exact replica of the Thomas Crown Affair car which had the alloy wheels.  Woman is a Shapeways product.  Diorama is California Pit Stop, the California Spyder is the focus of that project, but have been utilizing for a studio.

Thank you. I'm glad that I built the diorama.  Was inspired by an ad in a collector car publication, eventually got the Texaco parts luckily before the economy tanked 2008, then got a color print via Ken Ebberts the artist .

Kurt, fantastic diorama - this Texaco gas station seems to be a Ferrari hotspot - great work on all three - did you use the Fujimi Borrani wheels/tyres for the two Italeri Ferraris?

Anyway, the 275 GT/B Spider N.A.R.T. is awesome!

Thank you too!  Just like a Cars & Coffee, never know what is going to show up.  The California is the Italeri kit spoke wheels which are pretty decent (Fujimi is the best plastic), I have a Herb Deeks photo-etch set but used only the tires (I don't like the white metal rims).
