    LaFerrari [Revell] 1:24

    Thanks, guys! @Rwa66 Richard, lining on the seats are decals from the kit.
  2. Almost six months and I've got pearl white LaFerrari completed. It wasn't the best choice for the third model. A lot of time spent fixing and improving this complicated kit from Revell. As a result of work done I can give the only advice - don't waste your time and better buy LaFerrari from Tamiya. That one certainly will help to save your nerves and time.

    On the other hand there are no more limits so sawing, cutting, gluing...

    Some work on engine has been done as well. Initially I was planing to build very precise replica but after some calculations realized that it's very difficult because of wrong body size

    Hi Gents, Thanks a lot for all yours kind comments. Alan, you might not believe but I've got 2,5 completed models so far. Just started modeling a bit more than a year ago. You are right, SMER is exact copy of Merit models. Kit is oversimplified so I couldn't resist to improve it slightly. Regarding wheels... there are few options but I want to build really 'cheap' model and will try not to spend 20-30 pound for spoke wheels. Dan, thanks. Your Talbot's build is definitely what I was inspired with. I use images from your WIP as a main reference. The only thing that I couldn't find is fuel tank. Have no idea about shape, pipes and etc. I would appreciate if you can share some pictures. Shaun, good point! That idea is already planted and growing. I have a plan how to show inner mechanics but will keep intrigue for a while ))) Ok, let's continue. Front suspension this time

    and a bit more details... p.s. Sorry for my English and feel free to mark any mistakes
  9. Hello everyone, This is my first WIP here. Despite project is half-way completed I decided to show you what's on my workbench at the moment. More over this WIP should be good motivation to finish the build. So kit from SMER was spotted and bought for 10 pounds occasionally and I didn't take it seriously until I found scratch build of the same model from Dan (@PROPELLER) in 1/8 scale. My life has changed dramatically since that time Ok, less words - more action. Let's start building 1949 Belgian Grand Prix winner or at least something that looks similar... First of all let's have a look at the model out of box Just a simple plastic toy I started from cutting, drilling and building frame
  10. Hi Guys I am a newbie in modeling and on this forum. I started building models about year ago and have only two of them completed so far. My first project was RB8 from Revell. Definitelly, it wasn't the best kit to start, wrong scale for Formula 1, a lot of poor quality decals and etc.Anyway, it was interesting challenge and a lot of experience for me. Kit has been build mostly out of box. Just added seat belts and etched fasteners. Hope you will enjoy photos.
