I like that color combination a lot. Very cool.
Sorry Jon, didn't see your comment. I already have 4 or 5 1970 Olds 442's of one variation or another, the most represented year in 1/18 scale, I really had no interest in another one. This restomod version from Acme sort of grew on me though including the color combo of grey metallic on black wheels. It is such a nice model in person, very glad I got one. Thank you Jon. I have one more of it testing out the garage background that I shot with some figures.I like that color combination a lot. Very cool.
Thank you Mr. Rapide66. I was initially going to go with the BBR rims as done by Arnage, and you, but the tire swap was much easier; though I now need new wire wheels for the California..so I may go with the BBR for that. Someone posted on a Ferrari FB page that the BBR rims are meant for 1950s Ferrari's, the exception being the PO4s which is for the 250 GTO. In all fairness, the rims on the Hotwheels look spot on, it is just the size of the back tires that seem to off.Great photos, especially that last one with the skyline background. I have the same exact Clapton 250 Lusso with BBR rims but your front grill seems more refined? Not sure if you did anything with it?
They look great together! The image has that showroom/museum vibe to it, very nice!
And to me that BBurago easily passes as the BBR version on that photo.
Thank you Gents!, I would never try and pass off an BBurago for a BBR but sometimes with the right lighting to mask off some of the lack of details you can make a cheaper model look alright. Though, this model I think does look pretty good for the money and way cheaper than the BBR. My only small wish is they had made it silver as to match the others hehe; I could take time and add more detail to it like Rob did with his, but I likely won't with so many others I want to do.Great "team work". I also thought that BBurago was the BBR one, even though i have the BBR!!!
Thank you Mr. Cristi! there are 3 missing that i know of; a 599 GTO, F12 TDF, and I have seen a 812 with the same colours. But all would require customizing a model to get them and could be pricey but I love what I have. Thanks for sharing your upgrades to the SP1 in thread, really nice.Epic scene, congrats!!!
