26 - Revell Ferarri 308 GTB (Cut to a GTS)

December 1, 2022 · in Automotive · · 10 · 0.9K

An old kit, which was pretty decent. I enjoyed this build but made some mistakes on it as usual.

The roof was cut off to make the GTB into the convertible GTS.

Instead of the usual Ferrari Red, I chose to. go with a really nice blue I liked, I got an automotive paint company to mix it for me - It is called Alfa Romeo Blue Chiaro.

I was nervous about airbrushing it onto the body because I normally use the Rattle cans. But it sprayed on very well. I clear coated and polished it up and then when glueing in the wheels touched the door with superglue.

Had to sand back and respray the area, a slight difference is noticeable but only if you know where to look.

For the interior I tried to go nice and different with a red and think the 2 colours look nice together. I hope you enjoy.

  1. A really nice Ferrari, Anthony!

  2. Really nice result on this Ferrari, Anthony @anthonyricco
    I do like the chosen color a lot on this model.
    Well done.

  3. Hi Anthony, I think Ferrari’s should always be red, or yellow, or, in this case blue, it looks great. Good conversion into a spyder, it would sound better from the driver’s seat like that.

  4. Looks great in blue, nice work!

  5. Very fine indeed Anthony @anthonyricco! 🍻 Great looking 308, and super work on that conversion to a spyder! 🤩
