Fabulous display. Some gorgeous cars there. Hard to believe I am still Ferrari-less despite my love for them. There are a few models there that really catch my eye even though I know they're pretty average.

I get the new shelves to complete my cabinet overhaul today, and with all the extra space I'm considering laying the cars out something like that, rather than just in rows. I think it really brings the models to life.

After having more space for Ferraris now, I remembered a cardboard stored for years in the cellar of my parents. :giggle

Amazing, what I rediscoverd there last weekend!

• F40, yellow (bburago)
• Mythos, red (Revell)
• 250 LM, red (bburago)
• 246GT Dino, yellow (Anson)
• 365 GTB/4 Daytona, red (TechnoGiodi)
• 365 GTB/4 Spider, black (Solido)

F40 and Mythos are in quite good conditions, the others have to be restored with a bit more time and effort. I'll do step by step.

Starting this week with the

MYTHOS (Revell)

what was done:

• body polished
• frontscreen decolored (I've tinted it smokegrey once)
• headlight glasses polished with Displex (they were yellowed)
• interior cleaned and carpeted
• engine colored











Just have to add some new 4-point-belts and it's ready for the cabinet.

• new mesh for the air outlets in the engine hood
• interior colored like archtype

I was asked for a group shot of all my Wiesmanns so I packed them all in their boxes and went out today for a photo shooting.

And where could be a better location than at Wiesmann manufactory?

First I placed all lizards on a warm "stone" in the sun... :giggle





A couple walking by was very interested and we talked a while, then they took a shot of me and my "babies":
(Sorry guys, there weren't any grid girls so you have to be satisfied with my mug :giggle )



Then we went to the "stage stairs":





...and after that each one on its own podium:








(look what was sneaking around the corner in background! :eek:mg )



You only count 10 here? Right, there weren't more podiums :giggle so I left the one stock version (carbon black roadster) boxed.
Unfortunately there was no salutatory 1/1 parking outside today. :mob

At last all posed in front of the showroom again:





Well, when number 12 is comming soon, I won't take out all of them again... :lol
To pack and unpack them several times left some marks, hope I can fix them easily.
