MFH 1/24 Ferrari 250TR 59/60

I just completed this 1960 Le Mans winning car driven by Paul Frere and Olivier Gendebien.

Built OOB from early MFH kit, painted with automotive spraycans and Vallejo acrylics. Only real issues were decals, that for the first time in my MFH kits were damaged, the protective paper had stuck to decals and they were unusable. Luckily i had some similar roundels and racing numbers in my spare decals.

Great looking model Niko! Please show us the rest of it.

I had the same paper sticking to the decals problem with my TR too! Lucky for me I was able to pull it off without damaging them. Since then I have inspected all my MFH kits and removed that paper from several of them. Many were starting to stick.
