This is one I did awhile back. It has had alot of work done to it in the way of sheet styrene to enclose the trunk area, lots of work to the engine, a scratch-built shift gate and box, the addition of the little braces behind the seats, gauge rims, scratch built air intakes under the hood, covering the holes in the knock-offs, and today, the addition of slightly smaller tires to the front, thanks to the GTO '64 I got from Jeff. . .

Eddie you have magic in your fingers. Thats an amazing transformation. You must be doing a lot of research before you begin. How do you actually go about it. It must have been asked before...but I would really like to know.

I've done a custom GTO myself some time ago....



Lovely Ferrari the 250GTO, one of the few cool Ferraris before 1980.

Great work Eddie. Can you explain what you did with the sheet styrene?
Your model looks great, I'll have to dig my one out now!!!

With the sheet styrene I mainly just measure areas and glue the pieces on to cover voids that Bburago likes to leave in areas like the trunk and the interior.

It's made by Jouef and I think it's the coolest of the 250 models in 1:18.

BTW! Forgot to say I liked your creation, cool color combination especially. :danbana
