Recently purchased a BBR Ferrari 330 TRI in 1/18. This is my first BBR and wondering if the base platform can be removed from the car. Itís no biggie if I canít, but it does seem pretty well reinforced and I certainly wouldnít want to force it off. Thanks!

Most can. There is felt covering the bottom of the base. Feel around for slight divots where the screws would be. If they are there, just make a small cut and take the screws out.

If it is flat all the way through, you could remove the bottom board off the base. I think it is held in by glue. You'll just have to glue it all together later. I have not done this yet, though. I only remove the ones I can easily get to the screws.

I am sure others have more experience, but hope this helps.

Yeah it depends on the base as to what you need to do. Jon is right though. The first one he mentioned is easier, the second one you'll have to split the base.

I was pleased with a  FrontiArt model I bought quite recently. It had a removable panel underneath to get to the base screws.

F**k you Photobucket.
