Thank you very much for your positive comments 🙂
Little progress:

- I put the brake hoses,

- I installed rear shock absorbers,

- I pasted the sides of the engine compartment.

Amazing work. I am building a 1:12 250 GTO right now as well, and this is inspirational. The detail you are getting in the smaller scale is very impressive.

Regarding details:
Keys in the ignition switch 🙂

And I bet when you put some fuel, oil and water in, she'll start first turn of it....!! :)

 

Lovely work!

I did not know how to modify the tips of the air intakes (under the hood). I found a two-color (aluminum) foil. It is silver on one side and gold on the other side.
It has a nice delicate texture. I thought: why not?
And it turned out like this:

Preliminary work on the frames of the headlights. After cutting and processing the plates, I caressed them with a stick and an eraser.

It is bent from the flat bezel, but it matches the curvature of the reflector. Now I can drill holes for mounting rivets and then paint the frames (Molotow).

I'm getting the taillights ready. They are weirdly large and I don't know if they will fit

I wanted to create frames imitating frames and seals, but I must forget about it.

I "bound" the pins for the production of hinges. There will be some.

Body elements got the first base color layer. Gravity GC-107 Ferrari Rosso Corsa.

I riveted the air intake tunnel on the hood. Master Club rivets 0.4 / 0.6 mm.

More superb details - and I'm really impressed by how you managed to curve the headlight frames into that shape!

Seconding what Keith said. Using an eraser to form curves is genius!

I did a caste fitting to the chassis.

I tried on all moving parts (bonnet, hatch, radiator cap, doors).

I found out that you can try to put it together, but it won't be easy.

Photos from the fittings (all on the word of honor or Patafix)

I installed all the lights. There was a lot of it:

- turn signals,

- dipped beam,

- position lights,

- cabin lighting,

- clocks backlight (done earlier).

I glued in all the lampshades of all kinds.

 

I made all the hinges of the moving parts:

- doors (only one side in the photos below),

- boot / spare wheel cover,

- engine hood,

- radiator cap.

 

I also worked on details such as:

- nets to mask various holes in the car body,

- engine hood closing fittings,

- matching the glazing,

- air intake on the rear window,

- a million other things that I have already installed or prepared for installation.
