First car model in about 50 years…
March 29, 2016 in Automotive
Many moons ago I put away my paint & glue, trading ’em in for girls, weed and a Rickenbacker bass. Fast forward several decades- Traded the former in for a wife, single malt scotch and (plastic) 😉 models. Been doing planes, an occasional tank and even a ship or two but now finally a car. My how time brings change.
Anyway, this is the Revell 1/24 Ferrari Enzo kit, 100% OOB. My advice- don’t even think about this kit…. if you feel like building an Enzo, get the Tamiya. Engineering, fit and instructions were all pretty grim. Have to say that the decals were surprisingly excellent though. Paint (ab)used was Tamiya X-7 which worked beautifully. All of the orange peel and other flaws are totally my fault- sloppy prep work. However, the paint is very delicate- Even after sitting to cure for 3 weeks, it will still get damaged by finger prints, even wearing a cotton glove.
Thanks for looking. All comments, criticism and laughter welcome!
