  1. Thank you. using the same Plexiglas that was part of a photo frame which turns out to be quite malleable without needing to be thermoformed ...
  2. Successful body / bodywork marriage. At the same time I modified the dashboard and started to mount it ...
  3. little tip: tinted or transparent windows?
  4. Thank you. Permanently glued the plexiglass and applied the gasket ...
  5. Thank you very much but, let's not exaggerate because in Ferrari if they decide to redo the F40 ... However, today I tried to paint the windows on the roof and bonnet with smoked transparent, the result is satisfactory. They are just leaning on completely dry paint tomorrow I glue them.
  6. Front grille fitting, made me sweat seven shirts ....
  7. Front rectangular badge, sill and roof / bonnet glass preparation ...
  8. ok, for most of the rebuilt parts I used cyan + bicarbonate, then metallic / two-component putty, finally stuccospray. Once I gave the black / spy primer I corrected the small difetties with light-curing tamya putty
  9. hi, i never use transparent on my models. It is a glossy acrylic color, after drying I carry out the polishing by hand.
  10. Try body / chassis marriage, it seems that everything comes back ... The whole is just resting.
  11. Beautiful car and beautiful work, congratulations. This model I have always wanted I hope one day to be able to have it in my hands. One question, I never understood why Pocher made the rough black roof, from the vintage photos I seem to have always seen it smooth in a glossy color or am I wrong?
  12. After polishing the front hood I wanted to try how it goes with the rest and I really like it
  13. Many thanks. Having a nice workshop has always been my wish. I did everything myself, being a DIY enthusiast, but given the large investment in equipment, I sacrificed one of my models to cover the costs.
  14. I have finished the painting of the body, in these days I will carry out the various steps of compounding and then final polishing by hand.
  15. thanks it was the most complex object I painted in my life. Months of grouting and sanding paid off.
  16. Ok guys, it looks like a small update but, I assure you, the amount of work to get the door to match well has been long. I designed the retractable handle in the point you see in the photo. Now I begin to see the end ...
  17. I decided on the color after many reflections, I put aside black because totalblack would have appeared between the tinted windows, miniskirts and extractor; red did not break with the taillights. So I opted for a very light gray ...
  18. thanks, a few more little tweaks and it's ready. On the color I am still undecided between Red and light gray.
  19. The bodywork is practically a silk, I think it is ready for the final paint. Now begins the finishing of the doors and hood.
