Ferrari 360 Spider

Hey Guys

Alex's words have resonated with me, Yes I have been lazy & not posting my builds, I should have been better, So feeling inspired, I'm gonna give it a go & build (& post) something without being lazy!
Was staring at the stash & wondering what I could build, that I either
A) Had , B) Didnt need extras for, C) Something decent, not too easy but not too hard.
Then it hit me, & I had a laugh out loud moment. Why not build a 360 spider....

So.
The Kit. Tamiyas superb 360 Spider

Also have a set of BBS wheels that'll look quite nice under her.

A quick google revealed this beauty

I want to do something nice, elegant but sporty, possibly with a racing stripe, something like these.

Open to suggestions & your thoughts on colour combos etc.

Re: Ferrari 360 Spider

Good start. I always wanted to build one, I have 3 kits, but after building 2 coupes I kinda lost interest (essentially the same kit) and never built one.
I think blue/tan is a good color combo. Or maybe silver/red?

Re: Ferrari 360 Spider

I like Blu TdF and Blu Elettrico.
If you want to add stripes you could also add some "sportier" transkit. But then it will of course be no quick OOB build any more.
Azzuro California or Grigio Alloy could also work.

Re: Ferrari 360 Spider

My opinion would be blue with a cream interior.

Looking forward to more updates.

Nice subject, the hardest part is always picking the body color.

No not yet, but a mate got some for me recently, I've got 2 colours at home that I'm itching to spray on something!!! But i don't think Bulliet Green or Miami Blue would look that great on this 360. Gonna place an order for some more splash paints soon, they've added so many awesome colours recently!

Cheers for the interest guys! I spent some time this weekend on it & have pretty much got the decklid done. went to get photos & my phone was dead...

Re: Ferrari 360 Spider

Hey Guys

Made some progress over the weekend! Molded the 360CS rear hatch "bump" into the Spider hatch. Needs some sanding & a few touchups, but pretty happy with it so far, its a tiny bit higher than the 360CS but thats ok with me.

Definitely a touch higher than CS, but looks good.

Re: Ferrari 360 Spider

I have this kit as well, but I picked it up for extra parts since my dog chewed up the engine after I glued it together.

I need to get back on my 360 built as well.

This is starting out nicely.

Re: Ferrari 360 Spider

Hey Guys

Made some progress over the weekend! Laid down some Zero paint! I forgot how awesome this stuff is, so easy to spray, great coverage & looks fantastic without much work.

Also decided to go a slightly different way with the interior, istead of the generic tan colour I thought I'd go with a more modern interior colour, like this GT4 Lusso.

What do you think?
