Hope you can make it back some day soon. One of your friends from Mexico is coming this year again. You have some great builders down there. The show keeps getting better every year although we miss your builds also.

Only a little over a month until Ferrari Expo 2012. I will start to post pictures of the 5 or 6 models I am trying to finish for the Expo this year.

Carrera PanAmericana is the special theme.

Check this very fine Porsche 550 model out. It is being done by Joe of 914joe fame who posts on this website. It is based on the BBR kit and will have everything opening. Can't wait to see it in person. Joe is from New Jersey.

Only 2 weeks to go. I think we will have one of the best turnouts in years at the Expo. If you are a good or great modeler and can make it this is one you don't want to skip!

We are already planning next years event and have some new ideas. More info soon.

Any vendors?

We should have a bunch of book/art vendors and a few model vendors. Stradasports will again be sending boxes of new kits to the show. I have a few new resin kit test shots from Fisher and Airtrax in 1/24th scale. They include the new Fisher Ferrari 750/500 Monza/Mondial and Airtrax Ferrari 275GTS both in 1/24th scale. Also new Cartogaf decals from Scale Designs in both 1/24th and 1/43rd scales and a test shot Ferrari kit from Scale Designs.

A link to a few models:

Here are a few photos of models I have done for the Ferrari Expo 2012(not just Ferrari's). Pan Americana 1950-1954 is the special theme this year so I did a few Pan Am cars. Next year F1/Indy open wheel cars will be the special theme for the model contest.

photo 1 1/24th scale 1952 Pan Am Lancia B20 de corsa modified Airtrax resin kit and CMC modified and repainted Mercedes 300SL Pan Am winner.

photo 2 1/43rd Porsche 550 Pan Am 1954 BBR/Project 43 kit

photo 3 1/43rd Ferrari 750 Monza Pan am 1954 BBR/Project 43 kit


I am still working on 3 more models for the show.


We allow all racecars/sportscars as long as they are done in good taste.

The Ferrari Club has a theme, and its racing and sportscars. It's at a Ferrari dealer so we stick to that type of car. We are not trying to snub anyone but this is also not an NNL. We have people come in all the way from Mexico and west coast because this is such an unusual show. Just come and enjoy and respect what they want. I am not a rich person but plenty of the Ferrari owners are and I get along with them just fine as they are always nice and polite. You can bring a modified sportscar as many others have. 2 years ago a highly modified Hamann Ferrari 599 model won best of show. Wich Downers Grove show were you talking about?

Had a good (though limited) time. Rosendo does it again. Gonna have to say his name through gritted teeth like Seinfeld says Leno's in Acura commercial: "Rosendo!" 😁

All kidding aside, his work is superb. 👍
