1/43 Ferrari 360 challenge ( BBR)

Recommended Posts

I’ve been on a 43rd kick lately and this is my next project. 2001 Ferrari 360 challenge. This is the car that won the Italian championship. BBR has excellent casting and some fantastic details. The body requires very little clean up.

This is going to be so cool, Tim!  Look at those wheels!  Amazing detail for 1:43.  Looking forward to seeing it completed.

After looking at a few pictures I’ve decided to change the dash color

I didn’t like the way the engine looked so I added plug wires . I also added some roll bar padding as well. Wire is .0075 in thickness.

Interior is just about done. Tie wraps are made with very thin wire. Just have to add the Ferrari logos to the intake.

Very nice.  I have built a number of 1/43 kits and this looks pretty detailed.  The decals will be fun.?

Well done Tim! 
so question for you is do you clear over decals in this scale?

Keep pumping out these great builds

 I’m just putting final touches on a 1/43 Renaissance 1963 Ferrari 250P

I do use clear sometimes. It depends on the car. On the real car the graphics would be a wrap . This one I will probably clear. The decals are a bit flat looking and I think some clear would give it the correct sheen. I can’t wait to see the 250.
