If you were at the Taupo Model X last weekend you'd have seen me tinkering with a few Ferrari kits - all of them are on the bench together, but I'll just post the Tamiya F40 here for now as I don't want to be a 'forum hog'.
I marked-off then sanded down all the mold seams at the show with Tamiya 400 then 600 grit sanding sponges and yesterday evening I primed the shell with Tamiya grey straight from the rattle-can. Just before dinner this evening I lightly rubbed-back the primer with some 2000 grit wet'n dry and a little water.
Ready now for the Tamiya fine white primer coat. Busy weekend for me so may not get any cave-time so progress pics as soon as I can, likely to be early next week.
Couple of little touch-ups on the red stripes, but otherwise we're done.
As ever thanks for all the interest, comments and support along the way. Have a tussle now between doing a Mikey Waltrip 2002 NASCAR build or a 2015 Porsche GT3 R in a very striking paint scheme as my next race car, next non-racer will be another Ferrari.
Stand aside caffine, this is a job for alcohol.
