Scale I Build

  1. Since the Pintera build is on hold until I can get to the store for paint stripper, I decided to pull this one back off the shelf. You guys are a little late to the party here, as I started this build around twenty years ago. This is the Testors boxing of the Italeri kit. Bought it brand new at a lhs (sadly long since closed) back in 1988. It sat pretty much untouched until the early 2000’s. As you’ll see, a lot of progress was made back then, but it eventually got shelved for reasons I don’t remember. Might have been around the time we moved. What’s finished- The body is done! Shot in Model Master Italian red (what else!) and some clear, probably MM too, with an airbrush, back when I had a good place to do that. Interior is also done! And finally, the engine is mostly finished. What’s that leave? I still need to finish the turbos and exhaust system. Also all suspension needs done, and then it’ll be ready for final assembly. Let’s see if I can push this old Ferrari across the finish line finally.
  2. Hi!, this is my Fujimi Ferrari F40LM. I wanted to change it to a barely street legal car, so I cut-off the front defuser, detailed the headlamp assemblies with indicators, filled-in the rocker vents, SB a stock wing, and ditched the LM wheels and tyres, for a set of Tamiya stock ones. The engine bay is detailed, as is the interior, with an added seat.

  4. Kia Ora folks - Been away from the forum for a while (apologies) so here's my last three finishes. Please feel free to ask any questions, Hurl any criticism or make any comments: AFN Ian.
  5. The hard fought build of the F40 is done. I learned a lot of what not to do with PE parts (my first time). It’s not perfect but I’m happy overall. I gotta do another one of these, maybe yellow tho...
  6. Hey everyone!, after a failed 2nd attempt at a Tamiya Ferrari F40, I decided to turn it into the accident aftermath on the famed Autobahn. It all went bad when I was accelerating to the end of the build....the body got stuck 3/4 of a mile down on the chassis.....I tried to separate the two, but it was no good.....thoughts were Zipping by me at high speeds!!….WHAT TO DO???!!!……..Then, as the finish line was in sight, my hand slipped!!…...CHIPS OF PAINT WENT FLYING!!!...…..THEN IT HIT THE WALL IN A SHOWER OF PLASTIC, AND BITS!!!......It was over, and I had lost. -This tragedy did eventually have a happy ending, I purchased a Fujimi kit instead, and actually liked it waaaay better than the Tamiya versions.
  7. I know this is an old kit, a search did not find any threads, so here goes..... Has anyone built the Tamiya Ferrari F40, using aftermarket carbon-fiber decals? The real car pioneered c-f, some is yellow weave, some is not as black as most decals available. I built the Fujimi last century, tried painting the seat backs.
  8. I started these two models a few months back, but ran out of paint and took a break from them. I wasn't originally going to do a workbench thread since I'm pretty new to this and it won't be that interesting, but I'm bored and planning to get back to them soon so I thought what the heck, why not. As my second and third models I decided that I definitely had to have an F40 in my collection, and I also wanted to build another Porsche. The 993 GT2 was perfect. Guts of the F40 I plan on painting the body of the F40 white. I think it'll contrast nice with the black wheels and red seats. As you can see below both cars are basically in opposite stages of their build I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I'll post better ones once I've started on them again.
