Hi there,

I built the Fujimi curbside variant of this and decided to replicate the car of German 60's/ 70's soccer legend Günter Netzer. 

This is the image of the car, taken 1972 while he was among the "common people".

And this is how it turned out in scale:

Many thanks guys, I apprecitiate your feedback.

I must say I was rather happy not to build the EM version. Both versions of the kit make it necessary to glue the lower part of the front fascia to the body. According to the instructions, this should be done at the very end of the build, which means that all parts are painted already. A great opportunity to spoil things last-minute... ☹️ I decided to glue those parts together prior to the painting process which gave me the option to properly fill and sand the gap. However, in order to fit in the chassis later on, I had to cut around 1 inch off the front part (the trunk where the spare tyre is located in the EM kit). Not a problem for this curbside, but it would be different with the EM kit...

Perfect model, Thomas; concerning the the EM kit, it IS possible to glue the lower front body part before painting. I did that more than 30 years ago (this is the result: 

Installation of the chassis was a bit tricky, but doable ( I followed the instructions with this one)

Excellent job on that one of a kind Dino.And who said Ferraris didn’t look good in yellow?,lol.For sometime,i never really cared for the lines of the Dino.But now,they are one of my favorites,with of course having the F40 as my all time favorite Ferraris,with the Enzo coming next.
