Ferrari F40

Hei Guys!

I just bought my first kit, but I haven't started on it yet. There isn't much tradition in modelling here in Portugal, so there are only a couple of hobby stores around. The kit I bought is the 24th scale Tamiya Ferrari F40. I didn't (dont't) want to wreck my first one, so I bought the cheapest kit I could find "just in case"...:biggrin:
Before I start, I've done some web research, and I found this forum, and it is Great!! The "How To's" are awsome. I've learned that I should wash the model before painting, or use several coats of primer...etc, but I need more information on the car so that I can get the max of realism possible (within my own skills :smile: ).
Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome!

Have you read the FAQ section? Surely a lot, if not all, of your questions will be answered there. The link is on the top of the forum page.

And a great choice of kit!

It's always nice to see another portuguese modeler around here.

Cheers :wink: :wink:
