    Hey guys,

    A buddy on another forum is starting to build a model of the car shown below. Try as we might, we can't find any pix of the engine bay that confirm if the valve covers in this version are the same (red) as in the street version - Can anyone confirm? [Any pix would be *awesome* of course!]

    TIA, cheers,
    Ian

    The ones on the LM are red, so I assume they would be too.

    Thanks for the responses guys - Appreciated. [Sheehan's site will certainly prove really helpful in the build - thanks for that.]

    However, not one of the pix shows the valve covers - Damnit!

    I know this is sounding really anal, but model builders are like that! - We want it "right"!

    Cheers,
    Ian

    Ian, PM me your email. I don't know if I have exactly what you need but I know I have about 40 pics of that car on my laptop at work. I have the same kit :)

    And by the way, that car is a F40 GT.

    Ignore that, you can grab any that you want from here http://www.anamera.com/en/detail/car/4251/index.html?no_cache=1&ret=278

    It looks like the wheels have been changed and its probably been modified in other ways over the years but the pics may still some in handy :)
