The drivetrain is now in the chassis.

Hope to have the rear suspension done for tomorrow. Maybe even the front but don't get your hopes up.

John, that looks great! I bought a few of these kits for the engine, they should drop right into the Fujimi 550/575M's.

Look forward to your progress!

Here's mine in Nero Daytona Metallic:

Chris,

Thanks! What colours did you use for the interior?

Mine's a dark blue just to be different.

Like this. Tamiya Sprays Dark Mica Blue to be exact.

As for an update, things are moving right along.

If I can find the time, I should have a rolling chassis by this time tomorrow.

John, I used, I believe, Tamiya Light Sand.

Pretty generic, but I like the way it looked.

I promised a rolling chassis but sadly, Jackson and the boys couldn't deliver.

It's sad when you can't count on your right hand man. :(

Dang good question. I've got three or four sets of them. One is from RnD Unique (definately not the RnD one). I've got a set from GMP Diecast (Don't think this is from them) and I've got a set from Team Caliber (?). Pretty sure this one is from them whoever they are. Came from WalMart in a set of NASCAR pit goodies - jack stands, war wagon and etc.

An old friend dropped by today to show me his new 1:1 '07 Ford F250 SuperCab 4x4 so I showed him the partially completed Scaglietti.

DSCF3092-vi.jpg

Even dropped the body onto the chassis for him.

DSCF3093-vi.jpg

The reason for the holdup in progress was me trying to find a suitable colour for the brownish leather that Ferrari uses. What do you think?

DSCF3094-vi.jpg

DSCF3095-vi.jpg

I think it's close enough for me.

As long as you are happy with it John. I think the computer screen colors will make it look different to us all.

Burnt Sienna looks good, but is a bit more red and more suitable to a Porsche. That looks pretty good to me though.

The Scag looks great! You'll have it finished in no time.

It's not even close to burnt sienna Chris. A woody tan which is funny as Testors calls it Wood. :lol:

Here's the reason for the delay in updates. I've been working on the interior.

It's getting harder and harder to work on as it nears completion.

DSCF3112-vi.jpg

Typically, I don't mask to paint window trim but I thought I should on this one.

DSCF3114-vi.jpg

The body was glued to the chassis just before I sat down at the computer tonight.

I've been busy with other projects the past day or two so progress has been slow on the Ferrari.

DSCF3133-vi.jpg

The tail lights have been installed and the whole car was polished today.

Should have it road ready in another day or two so long as I have the time.

We'd sorta put it to one side for a few days (about a week actually) before doing the final details.

DSCF3143-vi.jpg

RoG's issue of the kit painted Tamiya Sprays Dark Mica Blue.

DSCF3144-vi.jpg

As is typical of a RoG kit, fit is a little fiddly at times. In my case, it was fitting the body to the chassis and the driver's side windshield wiper.

DSCF3146-vi.jpg

DSCF3147-vi.jpg

FWIW, the hood is hinged and opens but there's not much to see nor is the chassis much to look at. All aerodynamic panels.

DSCF3148-vi.jpg

The brake rotors were given a wash but I think I should go back and give the lug nuts a wash too.

Maybe we should do a 612 posting day. How about the 6th of December?

Thanks,
