Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

FPPM will also do the Bugatti T251 French GP 1956 F1 aero car in 1/24th scale. This company does some amazing and rare cars no other model company dares do.

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

FPPM is really putting out some nice 1/24th resin model kits this year. So far they are doing the Lemans, Targa Florio and coming soon the #55 Pan Am Porsche 550. They are also doing the first Ferrari ever, the Avio 815. They have just announced that they are doing the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Bertone, a car considered by many to be one of the best looking street Ferrari's ever.

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

The FPPM Porsche 550 1954 Pan Americana car #55 is out in 1/24th scale and it looks wonderful. Finally a good 1954 Porsche 550 race version. They will do the Lemans version soon along with Pan Am car #58, the VW distributor sponsored Porsche 550.


Also FPPM will do the 1978 Ferrari 312 T3 and 1979 312 T4 GP cars in 1/24th scale early next year.


The twin supercharged 1939 Auto Union GP car is also out along with the AVIO 815(Ferrari). Next up is the Alfa Romeo 1924 P2 GP car all in 1/24th scale.


I love the models Fernando Pinto is doing for FPPM. He has a great eye for making them look like the real cars. The Ferrari 315/335 1957 is a perfect example. MFH Hiro could not correctly capture the 1957 last Mille Miglia winner #0684 in 1/12th scale but FPPM nailed it in 1/24th scale. Most accurate model of the 1957 Mille Miglia winner ever made in any scale is the FPPM.

No, he only sells direct or on ebay direct. I think that helps cut down costs with no middle man. Still can't figure out how he does the kits with hand laced wire wheels so cheap. Crazycar on ebay.


By they way for those who knew them or bought their kits, both Paul Fisher and Joe from Quick Skins models made it out of Paradise California ok, but they lost everything. I am sure Paul will be back.

Yes I have it on order and it looks very nice. He will also do the 312 T4 1979. Just received the Alfa P2 wich is great with wonderful hand laced wire wheels. He says the next up will be the Ferrari 250 Bertone, maybe the best looking street Ferrari ever made!!!

Re: FPM resin 1/24th scale kits

Thanks Tom.
I don't like the window frames at all, especially the windshield, where the place for a thin metal frame is indented on the body, making it both fragile, and just plain wrong.

Also, attaching clear acetate to a piece of curved stainless steel/brass is a nightmare and never looks right. Fernando, who did masters for these models for years should know better.

You are intitled to your opinions but I don't agree with you at all. Window frames may not be 100% correct but everybody who makes high end models does it this way for a reason. It looks much better when completed. Much better than bare metal foil. You could fabricate metal frames to make them 3 dimensional but putting foil on them looks terrible. Even my Russian high end model builder friends don't agree with you and I know a few who do it for a living.

Umm, okay. Never said a word about foil.
And no, not everybody who does high end models does it this way. And I know a thing or two about high-end model building for a living.

You do nice work, don't get me wrong but you build other peoples kits. I am referring to companies that do their own resin models from scratch. BBR, Tecnomodel, MR collection, EMC/Pivtorak and B&G ect all use photoetch windows in both 1/43rd and 1/18th. Top Marque, GP Replicas, BBR, OTTO ect even use on 1/12th models.


I am not digging up the post but you told me previously that you liked bare metal foil and several models on your old website are done that way.
