    Im posting this after searching the site high and low.

    I am looking for close up pix so I can detail my 1:12 scale Kyosho F40 model. Particuarly Im looking for shots from under the front clamshell, especially of the IC plumbing, and around both front axles. I have many reference books, and none highlight these areas.

    TIA!!!

    Holy cow - those photos are exactly what I hoped for!!! Thank you very much both Alex and Michael.

    The Kyosho 1:12 F40 is a beautiful model as is, I just want to take it a little bit further. I will try to post pix in the collectors section when Im done.

    have you seen my 1:8 F40?

    sure have... its been an inspiration too, though I didnt want to dedicate nearly as much money for mine. Im totally blown away by your talents. I dont think I have seen the finished product though - what stage are you presently at?

    The 1:12 scale fits my collects as I already have the 250GTO and F50, and have an Enzo on order.

    I think it is s/n 86697 from 1990. It is still in my register. Did you know something about the runing miles?

    ch: click the album link again and proceed to drool :)

    greg: thanks! this probably will surprise you but i'd honestly say im only like 3% done!! that is cool, i have a McLaren F1, F50, XJ220, and a C5-R in 1:12. my next 1:12 purchases I believe are going to be Tamiya's Enzo and AutoArt's Murcielago, in metallic orange of course.

    F40org: I sure do. 14,749 miles to be exact :) http://www.sportauto.cc/C999fer90red/index.htm
