I finished this fantasy GT1 style 550 today.
This model proved to be a pain to photograph properly due to the reflex paint.
It looks uneven when it's straight and smooth paintwise and the details were drowning in the shades of black and silver.
Especially along the added ground spoilers the light trick the eyes and hides the details.
Well, it's at least a special Ferrari :tease

Very interesting model! I like it! It looks like a factory prototype, or preseason (before graphics) race car. Are those turbos attachd to the exhaust pipes? Whats that tube attached to the drivers side rear window?

I expected mixed feedback on this piece.
I love the color because it has that dirty prototype look to it.
Acyually the color is much nicer than the pictures show, I've used a similar mix on a 917 roadcar but the result was a darker shade and it was possible to take good pictures. This one is close to impossible as it looks uneven no matter what the angle is.
The hose attached to the rear window is simply to provide the cockpit with cold air and the part around the exhaust is a "booster" inspired of something I saw on a race car some time ago.

Hey ArV6!
I'm gonna paint a UT 993 GT2 in that color just for you:)
I'll guess youll be happy then?
