WIP : Ferrari F430 Spider!!

long time no see guys



i'm not really into modelling anymore, but i just have to finish this kit the best way i can.
I bought this revell kit, it's just out, it needs lots of prep work before i can even start

hope you enjoy the progress

Re: WIP : Ferrari F430 Spider!!

new pics:

sanding down all the molding lines, and there are many of them, in this kit...



very shitty wheels... i'm thinking of aftermarket ones, i hate this "fake" rims that revell uses often.



some parts:





pre-fitting



the color



the mirrors, i have a question about them, i thought that only the mirror at the drivers side had the F430 inscription. does somebody know the awnser?



ready for primer

Re: WIP : Ferrari F430 Spider!!

Jan,

The mirrors in the revell kit are wrong. The F430 logo should only be on one mirror, usually the left one, although it's on the right mirror for right hand drive versions. So basically only the driver's side mirror should have the logo.

I have to say I like how they engineered the body and the engine.

Re: WIP : Ferrari F430 Spider!!

i think it looks better with the F430 logo in both mirrors, but i think, if I would made an exact replica, i would fill the other mirror up lol.

zerrocool, off the top of my head there is this site http://ferraris-online.com/cars/carssold1.shtml . Look around in the 'Cars we sold' section, they may have an F430. If I think of anything else I'll post it here.

There may be something here too http://www.ferrariportal.com/ .

Here's one more http://www.ferrarisales.com/more.phtml?method=lkup&firsthid=740&offset=0&qty=6 &id== They have hi-res links to the top right of the photos.

Hope this helps.

Can't wait to see your progress.
