I finally got to finish a model I've been working with a long time due to color problems.
I decided to make this model years ago but has never come around to actually doing it. I was originally going for the typical red and was also considering carbon black. Then I saw this beauty:



I was thinking; ok, let's drop the standard red or black and go for something as fresh and spicy. As said above I had huge problems mixing that bright yellow proberly and due to the custom paintmix the paint was a true pain to apply evenly.

As my customs very rarely are made to recemblence the original a 100%, this one is a lot closer than most of them as I really likes most of it's original aspects.
I went a little crazy in the engine bay and added some black wheels etc.
They only bad thing ended up beeing the gap between the hood and the front spoiler which I have to fix later as it cracked up during final painting process.

So do you like my hot lemon?

That is one hot lemon! Excellent work as always! How do you do it!?

Are you going to add those "F1" mirrors from the 1:1?

I can't even apply water decals :giggle Nice work :10

Thanks guys! As always I appreciate all feedback as I value your opinions! :cheers

I will fix the front crack and display it along my red and black swarm of Ferrari's later this year. Soon I will finally have my house finished and then I will show a display room I'm going to be extremely proud of. :happy

Great work Thorst! :cheers I usually love the black wheels, but on this one, I think that the silver wheels would work better (like the 1:1 pic).

Looks great!!
love that yellow!

Did you modify the original bumpers or are they resin parts?

:cheers

The front spoiler is resinbased and it was a real pain to work with as the resin was extremely fragile and I was required to do a lot of work in the air ducts and also paintwise as the yellow had problems sticking to the resin. as I mentioned the front cracked once I was making the final touches and I'm thinking about how to close the gap without stressing the material too much. All the other parts are fabricated :cheers

I like the color, but I think the front spoiler is too big.
Where have you buy this resin kit?

Nice car and good work in any case ! :coolpics

I like the yellow alot, but I do think those front inlets are a little out of proportion. The front end looks too vertical, compared to the original picture.

Cool mod, nontheless!

:cheers
