33 - 1/24 ESCI Ferrari SWB Rally
Roooooar - what a stunning classic this on is and man with rally decals - holy moly what a gorgeous car, I loved this build.
So when I had the opportunity for this beast I jumped at it - Painted and added a bit of extras to the engine, but with that big pan over it not much can be seen. I also got some Borrani wheels aftermarket and man are they beautiful wheels - really added a lot to the finished car.
Had a disaster with the windscreen - wouldn't fit nicely, it is a one piece for all the windows so I had to cut it up into parts to fit, but it wouldn't stay in so I decided to hit it with some superglue and kicker, boy did I learn my lesson. CRACK, that stuff gets Nasty, cracked up the window luckily only a tiny part that is visible, and no I'm not going to tell you where.
Couldn't find the right blue so eventually painted it in Tamiya X-13 Acrylic Metallic blue, which actually finished off way better than I would have thought.
A really beautiful car and honestly you don't have to have much modelling skills to make it look amazing, the car's beauty does that, you could just put the bare plastic body over the chassis and have a stunner.
I hope you enjoy - I definitely did.
Looks great, I love that color!
Hey Robert @roofrat, thanks so much, yeah needed a different colour to the reds on the shelf.
You’ve got to love a Ferrari GTO, and this one is fabulous, Anthony, that colour really suits it, and the wheels set it off beautifully.
Thanks so much George @chinesegeorge, much appreciated, yeah not much better than a 250 GTO in my opinion
Love this one, Anthony. The blue is perfect.
Thanks so much John @j-healy, struggled with the thought of the acrylic paint on a car but it worked.
Grazie Eric @eb801
Looks very realistic
Thanks a lot Rafa @blackmopane, glad you think so.
Belissimo indeed, Anthony!
Two thumbs up!
Thanks Spiros @fiveten, much appreciated.
A beautiful Italian stallion, Anthony @anthonyricco
The blue color does indeed suite this car perfectly.
Thanks so much John - appreciate it, yeah I like it a lot in this blue.
Gotta admit, your 250 GTO is a beauty in blue.
Good choice on the spoked wheels!
Thanks so much George.
Lovely work Anthony !
I knew someone that had a ( Dino ) Ferrari. What a handmade piece of craftsmanship it was !
Hey thanks Bernard @bernardbedeur - much appreciated, oooh I love the Dino - what a gorgeous car.
Awesome subject & paint scheme. Liked.
Thanks so much Doug - appreciate the message.
Really nice build and I like the color, but really have to say those wheels are incredible!
Thanks Walt B, yeah they make it so much better hey.
Looks great, gotta love those old Ferraris !
THanks Greg, yeah they don't make them quite like that anymore.

Nice clean, sharp and very colorful model of this Ferrari Anthony.
The paint work is well applied and a joy too see.
Thanks so much @de4ever, much appreciated, glad it is a joy to you. that makes me happy.
@anthonyricco - Sorry I'm late to this party Anthony! This build turned out beautifully. There is no visible damage to any of the glass that I can see. I also found out on the Ford GT that Rustoleum gloss black will fog the glass behind the masking stickers. Only Tamiya sprays on glass parts from now on.
