Stunning indeed from what you started from.

As mention POCHER took the easy way back in the late 80's with their Testarossa/F40/Porsche kits...way simpler to assembled &.,.way less detailed then former legendary Classics car kit series, guess to broden their market share ;)

Amazing work...hope kool Sassy likes it!

Did I read that you plan to put this masterpiece in storage ? That doesn't seem right. You can send it to me and I will give it a good home. I will even "pop" for the shipping ! : )

Awesome work Romell. I guess whenever you have to check for detail accuracy you just go out to the garage to look at the real thing, right? Ha. I'm following your build. Great stuff. I see Revell Germany is coming out with the 599 GTO. I've got to get one.

Rommel; that's amazing!! I had no idea that there was a model kit out there with that kind of detail. You're doing fantastic, putting it all together. There's just so much detail!!

Thanks Ken but I dont think there is a kit out there with this much detail , im building this kit with the help of the "Autograph Trans Kit" without this trans kit this model is basically a (very exspensive) diecast toy. :lol: Edited by Romell R

Thanks fellas.....

With the F40 being my favorite super car of all times I always felt she looked her best not in Ferrari red or yellow but in BLACK, a dark glossy black! So now it time to get some paint on the body so guess what color I'll be spraying this beauty? You guessed correctly , Black.

So i gave her metal body one last sanding and warmed up the ol air brushes and got busy....I hope you enjoy the pics.....

body taken down to bare metal

now add a lil primer

and some black paint .....clear coat will be added later....

bodypaint002.jpg
