I think I pretty much finished the kit last night, but it seemed more sensible to place the pics here.

congratulations! It looks awesome, im going to be a big kid and ask santa for one. Because i will probably make a right hash of it :/

Thanks.



There is about 80 hours work there !


I should point out that the photos make the red look lighter / more Orange-looking than it actually is.


The paint fininsh is also smoother than in the pics, - which make it look orange-peel finish...(on full size, not too far from the truth though!)


That's the effect the flash has...

Nice work. 80h though!!. I did one of my barchetta when I first got it, came out horrible. That's a credit to you. I'm still hoping a decent minichamps pearl white comes available.

Someones stolen your headlamp washers!

Also did you have to fill the holes in the wheel arches?

Just remembered, - Even Tamiya were wise enough to dump the Primacy's in favour of the Michelin MMX3 !
