Revell Ferrari 365 Boxer 1:24

One that I had started but not documented at all; the almost ancient in car kit terms Revell Ferrari Boxer kit from the 1970s.

Started before Fujimi released their excellent kit of this car which is why, in part, I had boxed it.
Paint is all Tamiya.
Light Grey Primer all round, Light Gun Metal and Semi-Gloss Black


Simply beautiful.








Like all of the kits that came out of Revell at this time, they tried their best to make as full of detail as possible with at least opening engine compartment be it in the front or rear.
In this case, it is an opening rear clamshell.



Where as some of the other kits in this range, notably the Stratos and 308 kits, the engine here is... serviceable.
The biggest failing is the big square block that they used to (very) loosely represent the air conditioning compressor/whatnot.




Another pair of shots showing effect of different focal lengths.




and the more exciting one


the other side





again, a pair to show difference in focal length






and some randoms







and to finish, the angle that made me fall in love with this car all them years ago: triple lights and triple pipes.

Beautiful! I simply love boxters, and this one is a beauty.
I'd add some wash to the wheels to bring out the detail though.

Re: Revell Ferrari 365 Boxer 1:24

Nice work DM! And good pics too.

A question - I notice the "glass" has a chromatic (rainbow) effect. I've got the same thing on the glass of my Fujimi F430 Senna version, and I was wondering if a dip in Future might fix that?

I've been building a couple of WW2 aircraft lately (good cure for modeler's block!) and I've been really impressed by what Future can do to improve canopies.

Re: Revell Ferrari 365 Boxer 1:24

Nice build. It appears you have seperated headlights from the main bodyshell. Are they able to "pop up" and if so do they have any headlight detail? I also like how you've given very good comparisons showing the effects of focal length. After also demonstrating it in your other two recent threads, is there one you prefer using than the other, given distortion and dof effects?

Re: Revell Ferrari 365 Boxer 1:24

The seperate headlights are part of the original kit but alas, since I started the build I had lost the parts that go inside them so all that's there are the pop up pods themselves.
The parts had awful fitment anyway...

As for the photos I'm torn between the more realistic result of taking the shot from further away using a narrower angle and the dramatic distortion of getting in close with a macro.
As you can probably tell, the 3/4 diagonal shot is my new favourite although that could just be just be because of the "wedginess" of the car in question.


Mostly, I go with the shot that looks closest to what a 1:1 shot would look like.

I've read that some people prefer to use a wider angle lens and then a smaller aperture but I've found that this doesn't work too well on a little pocket camera that has limited f-stop and more sever distortion from the teeny tiny ccd.

I suppose on the plus side, the pop-up headlights won't distract from the sleekness of the body .
Using wider-angled lense plus small f-stop would not be something I'd think of for model photography, purely as the small f-stop would give the least dof. Ideally, a large f-stop would be good to make sure the entire body is in focus, not just the wing-mirror. Anyway, I don't want to head too off-topic. Congrats again on your build.

that's why I said small aperture, not small f-stop.
