I'm trying to avoid resins, but I was curious does the base unscrew off?  In particular the Ferrari 599.

Edit:  Question goes to the MR 599 also

Oh that looks fantastic.  I was worried because I had a Maserati MC12 long ago and it didn't unscrew off =/

You might have to dig around for the screws though as on some of them you can't see the screw holes underneath, they must put the baise on afterwards on those.

F**k you Photobucket.

I don't see any screws underneath my BBR 599 GTO :gaah: Do I need to remove the layer on the bottom to get to the screws?

Yes i have done that before. Theres a layer of cloth glued to the bottom. I pad around the base to feel where the screws were and then used a knife to cut a little line so i can stick the screw driver in there...

I didnt want to start a new thread for this but just want to be sure, I have to remove the lower part of the base (red arrow) from the top part of the base (green arrow) and after that, cut too find the screws under the model ?

yes, but seeing as this is a Deluxe base from Raceline it's not so easy. The bottom is leather wrapped cardboard so the trick with the knife to find the screw holes doesn't apply. You indeed need to remove that bottom part completely but it's glued on so good luck getting it off without tears and damage

If it's not die-cast, it won't have a crumple zone

the deluxe shedoni leather base amounts to a $100+ premium so why the heck remove it? Without it the model is light and feels insubstantial.

I would just leave it alone. You may risk damaging the model and it will be too late when you regret it.

It can be done, and it can be reattached if youre so inclined. Ive done it with mine. Removing the bottom layer will expose the screws, theres no additional cloth to cut.
