Recommended Posts

I bought the New Revell Ferrari Laferrari a while ago. But I had to finish the GT86 first befoe I could start on this one. The Gt86 is finished so this one has been started :mrgreen:

No pictures of the box content but I did make a video
I also made a start on some gleuing and filling wich can bee seen in this video

The body is made up out of a couple different pieces that need to be gleud and filled before paint. I gleud them with Revell Concatt glue and filled it with Zero paints filler

Their were a couple of sincholes in the body that got some filler aswell
The body recieved the first coat of grey primer so I can see which aera´s need more attention

Revell US is comming with this one very soon to, If I were you i'd wait for that one. Much cheaper to get it in US form in the US rather then geting it in Germany form.

Glad you like the vid's man!

Part 2 from the video series

Thanks guys!

I always use zero paints pre thinned grey primer micro filler. Most of the times when i start a new botle i do a litle test piece to see if it needs thinning down. And use about 1 ml of thinner to thin it. Thats for the whole botle of 250 ml

You always do good work. This is no exception! Great job on this so far!

FUN FACT: To own the LaFerrari, you must have 3 Ferraris under your name to own one, even if you have them money for one, but don't have 3 Ferraris, they won't sell you one. Only 499 will be made.

Everything looks great except the wheels. They are five lug and LaFerrari's have center lug. Were you planning on converting the wheels using the center from the kit wheels?

Nope going to leave them like this, I personaly don't like the center lugs

Is that a grounding strap, shown in the video with the airbrush?

Not sure wich part you mean, But its not a grounding strap(unless its somthing else then to catch lightning :D )
