Ferrari 488 Spider 1/24 Alpha Model

Hi guys, today I want to present my Ferrari 488 Spider in 1/24 from Alpha Model.



The kit should be well known in the meantime. The build was pretty straight forward, so I didn't take any WIP pictures.
The body is painted with Gravity Colors' Blu Corsa + TS13 gloss clear, the interior mainly with TS48 gunship grey. The rims are painted with Alclad polished aluminum.
On top to the box content I used Tamiya C/F decals, Detail Master flocking, ScaleProduction seat belts ans valves, Eduard mesh in the engine covers and EJan emblems.
The (casting) quality of the resin parts and also of the P/E parts is excellent, in general all parts went together very well. Only very few wrong parts like the rear view mirror or the parts that hold the rear wheels had to be corrected.
I'm not so happy with the ride height though, the car sits very low, especailly in the front. I think it would have been better to add maybe 2 mm of sheet before glueing in the wheels.
The instruction sheets could be more precise concerning the assembly order of the different parts. When assembled like shown in the instructions, the car can't be finished. The Spider specific part/cover just behind the seats needs to be attached to the cockpit first. If it's assembled to the body like shown in the instructions, the cockpit can't be assembled into the body. Also the diffusor must be assembled after the cockpit, otherwise again the cockpit won't fit into the body.
But that's minor issues, here are some pictures.
Feel free to comment and/or ask questions.
