Of long working hours for you and of long minutes of ecstasy in front of your work for us, when we see the McLaren this Ferrari promises another beautiful show.

I take a seat, pop corns and I settle down for the show.

Nice start Jurgen
I really look forward to watching your build.
I have the Thunder Valley super detail kit for the F-190 - I will be interested in how similat the kits are
I would like to see the difference between the two - this is the first F-190 I've see done with a PP kit
Happy New Years to all

Jurgen - your paint and decal work looks fantastic
Did you already clearcoat the paint and decals?
What color paint did you use?
very very nice

very nice painting and good decal job!!
What a shame that the Marlboro`s broken, i have those specialties decals as well. You can aplly liquid decal film from Microsol, that protects the decals for breaking into peaces, i use it everytime when working with old decals and it is very helpfull ;)

Thanks John, body is already cleared after the decals, paint is zero ferrari red..

Liquid decal film from Microsol

Thanks for the tip, decals are also thick, tried to apply them to the body (the one that didnt break :uhoh:), but Microsol didnt really do much in softening them... So i discarded them...

Some more work done...

Instructions said to use the included sheet of sef adhesive silver, think alclad is much cleaner and easier to simulate the heatfoil...

Nice Jurgen
I think I will have to get one of the PP super detail kits for the 641/2 - I only have the TV kits and I'm wondering how much is different between them
You're off to a great start on the engine-transaxle

Thanks for notice to the decals, i will take care when i apply them to mine ;)

Did you ever tried Gunze Softener? I use it in the main time, i have Microsol and Micro set as well, but Gunze softens much more i think.

That is some beautifully clean work.
I like the way you did not overdo the clear blue on the fuel rails.
That makes it look so much more believable.

Stunning work! I almost hate to mention this, but I got dinged by a fellow modeler for making the same mistake, so maybe you can file this away for future projects. The valve stems on the wheels are in the wrong place - they should be pointing out, not towards the center. Here's a picture that shows what I mean. I was a bit surprised to discover that this is true for almost all automotive wheels; only motorcycles seem to have valve stems pointing towards the center.http://www.ipmsniagarafrontier.com/images/images/IMG_5299-vi.jpg
