First Posted Project ~ Enzo ~

I spent many hours building model cars in my youth, but after joining the Navy, fell away from the hobby. In the past year I have had little sparks of interest spring up, some of it being inspired by some incredible art work of my friend Darin.

His talent is pretty amazing, (this coming from a pretty talented stick figure artist!) but his love for drawing has helped inspire me to go back to what I love...building cars. So it only seemed fitting that my first project getting back into the hobby be dedicated to Darin...a great lover of Ferrari's...soooooo

Here is the project. I am expecting this to take a while. 3 daughters and a crazy job...I am sure many can relate. but I have pulled out all the old tools, set up the bench, and started the mock-ups. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CHIME IN, catch me up on the new tricks of the hobby, and point out things like the pointy end of the Ferrari emblem goes down!!!

Welcome Dan.

I'll be watching your build for sure. I recently picked up this kit as well.

Thanks Rob. It seems to be a pretty nice kit so far. I have not built an Italian car yet, and I am feeling a little nervous on the detail end, since my buddy is such a fan of those machines. Guess that's what research is for!! I tell you, if there was Internet around during my building hay days...man. Makes me want to go buy all those old kits again and start all over!!!

I got everything but the body done in about 6 hours one night. It's not that hard to build for the amount of details it has. I'm impressed with this kit.

Keep it up!

So...as I said, it has been awhile. in fact, it has been long enough that while spraying the Italian Red on the valve covers, my old air brush line sprung a leak, causing paint to splatter. Looking for the EZ Off now!!! UGH
