    If anyone remembers from the old Ferrarichat I had posted pics of this resin kit I had started work on. Color coat of Boyd Alumacoupe Pearl Yellow went on this weekend, and two coats of clear overcoat. Being a 1/24th-25th builder, I'm finding this thing to be quite different to build. What I would disregard in larger scales, like small body flaws or a spec of dust, I MUST work on here in 43rd. A spec of dust on this thing looks like a rock!

    And it was fun! I have a new respect for people who choose to build in smaller scales. Every tiny little detail shows through, and each flaw has to be dealt with. None of the "It won't show" attitude with these things.

    The tailpipes and tail light trim are aluminum tubing I polished, and used plastic rod for the tail lights to replace the poorly done kit parts
