Fantastic work and colours so far! (I think if you can afford to buy a 599GTO, you get to choose what colour the interior is...). The exhaust is great -- what paint did you use for your "hot metal" colours?

I can't tell from your pictures whether or not you've done the bonnet (hood) yet. The Achilles heel of these kits (the 599 GTO and SA Aperta) is the front left corner of the bonnet. If you don't do something about it, it will not shut properly closed (look at other builds online, and see how many people didn't fix it...). The fix is easy, if you do it before you paint! You need to bend the corner down just a little (I held the bonnet part in steam from a boiling kettle before bending it) and thin down the "pins" at the end of the bonnet hinge so they have freedom to move inside the housing (they need to be able to lift a little as you close the bonnet). The friction with the side parts of the hinge will still keep the bonnet open perfectly well.

... I know, it's an Aperta, but both kits have exactly the same issue....

Interior looks great! That's why you build a model, you get to choose whatever you want on it!

White interior is nice, but a little stark for my taste. How about a body-color insert on the dash, or maybe simply add dark blue carpets? I dig it overall!! Keep up the good work!

Thank you, to warning me.

I know this problem. I bent the corner in steam.

The exhaust:

I work with Revell Colors. The basic color is no. 90 - Silver. I used the Tamiya Weathering Master set.

In the interior is an error, 3 pedal is provided with the kit, but the real car, only the 2.

I thought about it, but it's more like it.

Wow! I love the colors you used. Much better than the red, in my opinion. And the white interior contrasts it perfectly.

Thanks for sharing.

Later-

Very nice, I like the white interior. On the headlights you painted the surround silver. I would suggest to paint them black. That will look muc better in my opinion.

This is how they came out on mine
