New Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The replacement for the 599.

My money is on both of them doing it...... and going by recent standards it wont be the Fujimi version that ends up in my stash.

That car is pure secks :naughty:

There are a good group of Tifosi w/in Revell AG. I'm fairly confident it's not a matter of "if" but "when".

Fujimi? No thanks. Would be more fun if Tamiya did the kit, along the lines of how they did the LFA.

It has to be tamiya's turn... 6 years since their last horse, but they're likely to make the enzo replacement. The F12 is pure pornography that I dare not to look, hope Revell do it justice, Fujimi... well...

Yes. But they have to do it with the Enzo's quality, even if "curbside" and simplified (I meant curbside like the DBS "almost full" detail IS), this to say that after I seen your damn build I bought the DBS and i'm a bit disappointed with the quality and the engineering also, molds are not perfect like tamy stuff used to be.

Yes the F12 is pure secks!!!! The "mouth" is a bit in the cartoon style, like disney cars :D, but I like this car more than any last F after the F40.... ;)

:D Looks like the design is not by P. ;)...

I'm not entirely convinced by the surface detail.
I get the impression that the side details were designed with those 3/4 shots in mind and that once you get past the "ideal imagined" angle, the lines will start to get messy.

The rear is also too fussy for my liking.

What I find interesting here is that this is the first time I can think of where the V8 car informs the design of the V12 car. Previously, the V12 always came first, then the V8 design.

365BB - 308
Testarossa - 348
550 - 360
599 - 430

although I suppose you could argue that the F12 is a continuation of the 599 style.

We will have several choices soon enough, including a few 1/24th diecasts. The diecasts might end up being the best although Revell has been on its game. Tamiya...sure they will, with a paperweight chassis and no engine detail. Not bad but the BIG toothy front end is over done

I really hope somebody makes a decent kit of an FF first.
F12 Berlinetta is a good looking car, but FF is just pure sculpture!

Yep, looks a bit Pokemon-ish to me too.

Well, there is certainly some design elements of 599 in there, especially around rear wheel arches. It does look more like 550 Maranello from the side though.

You would think the economics of producing kits would be such that they would choose subjects of broad and timeless appeal???
I always thought that is why aircraft and military modeling guys had so much content compared to us. . . .

Why they insist on casting the seat bottoms to the interior tub I'll never know.

To be honest, I wish Fujimi would do something OTHER than a Ferrari or Porsche.
Do these companies (Ferrari in particular) have shares in Fujimi?????
There are DOZENS of other amazing cars out there - C'mon Fujimi...... NOT another flippin' BORING Ferrari!!!!!!!

Actually, yes, they have been doing and are planning to do other manufacturers besides Ferrari and Porsche. I give Fujimi credit pumping out actual NEW stuff lately. Take for example the BMW Z4 and Mclaren MP4-12C GT cars, Lamborghini Aventador, Sauber C30, and the Mclaren MP4-27 coming soon. They even came out with a scale version of Ayrton Senna's Kart from the 80's and 90's.

Not a bad kit, however the engine bay looks a bit strange and the almost complete lack of suspension detail is a worse thing than the molded in seats.

Exactly. Stop complaining and open up your eyes, and mind a little. If making Ferrari kits (that actually sell VERY well), allows Fujimi and others to earn enough to release kits that won't be profitable, but desirable by enthusiasts, I'm fine with them making as many Ferrari or Porsche kits as they want.
