Good Morning all,
I opened my new Fujimi kit last night to see the condition of the parts and to do a cursory inspection of the instructions. To my surprise (and a little disappointment), I discovered that this kit is meant as a curbside model. The only engine parts are some exhaust sections mounted to a bar and the gearbox. I have been doing alot of research on the 1:1 car in the hopes of doing a decent representation in scale, which meant opening the engine cover. Since the kit has no engine, can anyone point me to a source for a Ferrari V-12 engine in 1/24 scale? Many thanks in advance and I wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas!

Later,
Lee

Lee - HRM "Historic Racing Miniatures" has a resin engine/gearbox kit - also Renaissance has a resin interior and PE set. Look over StradaSports HRM and Renaissance 1/24 tabs and you will not be disappointed any more - John P.S. the other option is to get the "Union" Ferrari 330 P4 kit - it has engine-gearbox-exhaust etc in the kit - John

Before you buy, you can check out the kit contents and instructions on Hobby Search's website.

As mentioned earlier, the HRM kit is an excellent source for this. I have that engine kit myself and recommend it highly !!

Doc, what references are you planning to use in the construction of the tube chassis?

somebody told me...also our Gionc is preparing a full superdetail set for the 330p4 engine.Done by him it could be only a masterpiece (as the amazing 356 engine sets)

Andy, always nice works in progress there ;)
Lee, as reference for the tube sections inside the p4, u can use Jim Glickenhaus amazing pdf file about the refurbish of his real 846 car. (Neapolis user here in AF forum and ferrrari chat,or u can contact him via FB or twitter).He is always too kindly to modellers and has a lot of stunning pics of the "modelling" rebuild of his nicest car.
