Just picked up the new SF90 from Bburago, good overall shape, but very basic and in need of some upgrades.

I was going to wait for the Asseto Coras signature version, but not sure on the stripe on that version so got to work on this one for now.

First the callipers where painted yellow and detailed up, wheels re-sprayed satin black with new photo-etched Ferrari centre caps & silver wheel nuts.

Did a complete strip down, all the cheap black plastic interior sprayed Matt black, including dash, seats, steering wheel and door cards.

Carpet added to the floor, yellow material belts and photo-etched buckles.

Paint details added to seat switches, seat belt holders, manitino switch & pedals.

I was surprised Bburago had in fact melded the ‘RAC-E’ system under the frunk but it was all black, so I detailed It up as the hybrid is a big part of this car’s performance.

The frunk was also carpeted up.

The model was also lowered all round.

Great work on this. Happy that we've got a competent base but your additions really step it up. I'm wanting a solid color SF90 so I'm planning on painting a Signature. Hoping to see that and the Spider release soon
It’s a decent base to work with, the roof is actually a separate piece on this which surprised me, so it would be easy to off to re-paint.

Nice job -- you're very talented!
Thank you, not as good as some of the incredible people on here but I like to do a bit.

I would also recommend painting the dog legs matte black. This helps them hide, as they're quite massive
Yeah your right, didn’t notice them as much in person but they look huge on the pictures.

Great work. This makes me even more eager for the Signature edition as it seems to have a very nice starting point.

Looking good!! :cool::cool::cool:

I think a set of side windows would really finish it off. They'd be a nice touch.

Nice job! Sometimes it doesn't take much effort for a simpler model to look so much better and this SF90 is one of those examples. I agree with @StratosWRC on the front bonnet hinges, painting them black does hide them a bit, although the original parts are actually body-coloured:
