I really like the overall look with the rear deck closed in the down position. She's really starting to look like a proper Ferrari for sure.
, it's for the best, indeed, but the fit is not that good after all.
this kit's been difficult for sure, but you're bashing it into shape in a really good way Gabriel
, I agree, it looks like a Ferrari F50 after all, but I'm still crying for the wasted time
To me, it just not worth it.
Gabriel you done some nice work on a dog of a kit, i think i will stay far away from this kit.
run away from it.
It's my worst modeling experience so far.UPDATE - Bitter after-taste
Even the last "easy" bits weren't easy. The window had a deep scratch that I needed to sand it off:
Earlier on I was complaining about my new sanding clothes. Well, maybe they aren't too effective on 2K, but they work a charm on clear plastic:
The mirrors had sink marks and I found it easier to cut some thin cardboard inserts which I glued over than to fill and sand. Later on I covered the paper inserts with BMF. Note my red (outside the mirrors) is basically indistinguishable from the kit's red (inside the mirrors)
The model complete, as is My conclusions to the build
: not a kit to die for! The engineering has its moments of brilliance, but the poor quality of the molds and the archaic conception ruin what could have been a beautiful kit. In short, nothing
matches properly, except for 4 interior parts.Not recommended
, unless you die to have an F50 in your collection or some Kuwait sheikh pays you big cash to make a replica of his F50. If I would ever knew before what I am against, I will never accepted this kit for review.
Needless to say, CC Lee
