loose lug on the right rear, looks like....

I thought of opening the rear or the doors, but your right, these Fujimi kits are ultra fragile

So,...the back of the rears 'could' be ground off, to sneak them under the stock fenders,...?

Yes the rim could be narrowed to fit but not sure how the wheel would look in a narrow tire.  I'll get you a photo of the deep off-set wheel in the stock tires. 

Detailing/scratch building looks great.

Yes, I've seen that oil tank (Google is your friend), it is not in the engine compartment,..it's for testing only...on a rolling rack.

Mine is at maximum height, just before it keeps the hood open...

Thanks

I wasn't talking about position of the tank. I was talking about the length, angle, and location of the fill tube.

I wasn't talking about position of the tank either,... I'm saying if the filler tube is any longer it will keep the hood open....

It is angled towards the front enough, for me,...Once I add more lines and wires it will be barely visible.

Thanks

 

Sure. I was just pointing out that right now your filler tube is not going into the tank. 

Also, looking at the below picture, it seems the oil tank might be actually going under the battery, which explains why the filler neck is so long and angles the way it is.

Gottcha, I agree, and thank you .. the more info the better, I wish I could find a pic of the tank from the other side,

...even the blueprint is from the wrong side, but the flat panel has a cutout top right corner.

Please keep posting pics and tips, because I am learning a bunch as I go along:) 

And that goes for all of ya,.... this site is only as good as the information it shares

Cheers

Shoot, I feel like such a mooch.  I'm the one who is always learning here.  I feel like I never have much to offer in the way of information.

This model is just getting better and better!

Bruce a mock-up for you with the stock tires on the HRM wheels. There will be little left of the rear rim behind the spokes after it is narrowed to fit the tires.

 

Thanks JC

Thats what I was afraid of..I have some things coming from modelbuilderswh.com that I'm going to try ..

Two years ago, when I got back into the modelling hobby after a break of almost 20 years, I was focused on US car models of all various kinds. And I traded this Italeri kit against a Bullitt Mustang and a Plymouth Superbird. Molto stupido... :wacko:

Btw, I have to admit that each time I visited this WIP thread there has been a feeling of sadness due to my trading of the Italeri kit two years ago. In order to end that melancholy and with a bit of luck, I managed to buy one Italeri Daytona Competizione for a reasonable price on Ebay last week-end! It's still in sealed condition, so let's hope the decals are fine! :rolleyes:

Found this thread on a search.   I'm doing a Fujimi Enthusiast Daytona Spider for a paying /trading friend - want to make it as nice and correct as poossible.  I've found photos of everything I need on the topside, I think.  Found a couple photos of the A frames showing a gold color, but no other underside photos.   The Suspension photos showed a car with some years on it - was unable to tell if frame was painted originally.  I've tried every google search I can think of.

Shame the trunk doesn't open, with that cool toolkit.  Need to find a materials to make that better than the paper one on the instructions.

So far my questions are:  what color is the frame?  Black? 

What color  is the bottom of the floor pan?   Is it black or raw fiberglass?  Some restoration photos I found look like floor pans are fiberglass on the top side (tan).  Wondering what the underside is?

I'll try to get some in progress photos next time I work on it and start a thread.  Probably won't be as detailed as the build here.  Have started blocking out the body to smooth out the dips and waves.  Have glued up the crossmembers to frame so they'd have the best bond possible.  Also adding lead sinker weight in hidden places to give the model some heft.  Guy I'm building for does diecasts and I want this to at least feel like what he's used to.  But look even better than the diecasts he's used to.

Hoping to start some painting this weekend and would llike to have my colors planned out.  Otherwise I may have to go blacks on underside just to be safe.  Would rather be correct if that's not the correct coloring.

 

Thanks

@Randy: maybe you will find some answers in the WIP on a German forum which linked below. To me, this is probably the best WIP I have seen and for certain the best Daytona Spyder build. https://www.wettringer-modellbauforum.de/forum/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=33969

Thanks - going for a look.  I knew the folks here would have an asnwer of some sort.
