Ferrari 250GT California, 1/24 Academy (Italeri reboxed)
It’s the first Car model I built. (and maybe it’s last one for a while…)
This 250 GT is true design masterpiece of Ferrari in 60’s. You can find everywhere the most elegant curves and volumes of all time in every angle you look at it
Kit is Italeri’s rare old one which reboxed from Academy several years ago. Even it’s hard to find Academy one now.
Kit’s good overall. I fixed few problem which as high height on rear side and projected bumpers on both side. but I didn’t added more detail.
I had hard experience in painting and high glossy coating without airbrush.
After spraying black with Tamiya can spray, I tried to use an Urethane spay coat for wooden furniture. and it works!
Anyway building shinny automobile model is too hard and stressful for me, who used to weathering like it seems about to go to junkyard.
