Fujimi Ferrari BB512

Besides cracking the filler above the rear bumper, I had some problems with this kit. I waited to glue on the separate pieces below the doors until after painting and the doors pulled in above the chassis. To get the lower sides to fit I had to cram scrap in behind the doors to push them out. I also ended up with an open area between the front bumper and the body. While it looks fine with a black bottom, the gap for the black stripe around the body is much more narrow at the doors than at the bumpers. Having aired my frustration.... I thought this was a great kit.

Re: Fujimi Ferrari BB512

Came out perfect despite the problems you mentioned (none of which I noticed by the way) Inspirational colour choice,looks really different to the usual reds that seem to be the norm with Ferraris.

Re: Fujimi Ferrari BB512

Looks killer, fantastic color scheme. Would love to know what sort of paint and technique you used for the window/door trim...

Yes, very nice work. I also like the look of the rims very much. Do you mind if I ask how you achieved that natural white-ish aluminum finish?

Re: Fujimi Ferrari BB512

It's the new Fujimi kit and the wheels were just sprayed with Testors dullcoat because the photos I found showed the wheels looked like they were dull white-aluminum and they turned out perfect(dumb luck). I always mask and airbrush black trim because it's the only way I can get a straight line. It's well worth the time and effort.
