know if only you could get top gear to drive it around their track by enlisting the help of their tame racing driver..... Some say if he could be bothered, he could crack the Da Vinci code in 43 seconds and Some say his left nipple is almost exactly the same shape as the Nurburgring all we know is he's called the stig!

I sit here totally intimidated by this build, the photo etched parts, and detail work you put into it. The quality of your builds really make me sit and analyze what I'm doing, and how to do it better. What parts can I modify and make better looking and what I can do to add that additional detail to really make my builds shine. These are great inspirational pieces. Thank you for sharing. Holy moley this build is awesome. :blink:

Just wanted to chime in and say "HOLY FREAKING SCHMIDT!!!!!" That just looks absolutely beautiful. The detail you've put in there is incredible. This is why I love building large scale model kits and wish there were more of them out there to buy. Makes it so much easier to add detail and clean things up with such a large scale.

Wow Romell, this is sweet project. I have couple off Pocher kits in my collection that I traded a local friend some 1/32 aircraft/jets for them. These kits are in the class of their own. You have to have your stuff together to tackle these suckers. Just like building a real car with out all the oil and grease...lol Since, last year i have been thinking about getting the Ferrari kit. I saw one that was converted into a race car and it got me drooling all of it or I should say for it. So, I'm saving all my nickles to get one soon. In the mean time, I'll be following your work here cause you are doing some great work to you kit. Also, nice clear photographs of you work. Thanks and keep up the good work.

I've built the Testarossa Spyder and a bunch of the Porsche "911"'s, and had an F40 I thought I wanted to do the whole bit on until I saw how crudely the main components of the whole car were produced. I think the upgrade/detail supplemental parts are the only way it makes the F40 worth it. I've seen one that was very, very nice. But to do the real car justice, and justify the price of the transkit you'll need to strip the paint off, prep the surface properly, and do a quality respray and polishing job.

This is beautiful Romell.

It is the benchmark I am trying to aspire to on my Protar F40 build.
