Just a minor upgrade on my Kyosho Ferrari F355 berlinetta. Those rear lights are really sticking out to much, so I corrected them. I do like the model although it has it faults.

I also ordered 5 sets of 3D license plates from Dingsign, they don’t get more realistic then this in my opinion.

This is what I did with the rear lights. Took the bumper of which is attached only with two screws and so easy to remove. Then  remove the well glued lights and then I made a larger hole so the light will fit in it and can place it deeper inside. I did this for all the four lights...

Simple but effective, looks so much better. Some inaccurate things that big manufactures do sometimes amazes me.

Great work!!! As we have come to learn, Kyosho sometimes "interprets" designs grossly....but seeing this, you made the rear look correct.

Thank you, indeed and sometimes of scale...like the Honda/Acura NSX, BMW e46...
