    I love the yellow Ferraris. I have heard the official colors are red, black, yellow, white, and blue. Or course, the Gunston 350 was unique too.....so you always have choices.

    "And here comes the obvious question what color?I have too many red Ferraris.I am open to suggestions."

    Hard to go wrong with the Ecurie Francorchamps yellow from Spa, 1965:

    or perhaps the more subtle silver 1964 Tour de France entry:

    That chassis will be a significant improvement in the cars, I am sure! Great work.

    I managed to remove the windshield from the red GTO without much damaging the body,the previous owner had dislensed glue by the bucket.

    I used plasticine as moulds this time,it worked better

    So now i have to bodies ready for the paint booth and one complete chassis the second one will be in line


    And here comes the obvious question what color?I have too many red Ferraris.I am open to suggestions

    Until i make a decision i started another one,Jaguar E type Eldon,chassis ready and printed


    I have 3 bodies,this one will replicatethe car of a Greek champion in red colour

    Looking forward to seeing more. The kids have a whole different perspective on Corona days. First Easter in my life that my wife and I were without family. Good thing for facetime. I sure am glad I have a hobby and vast stockpile of projects to fill up the day.

    "I like those corona virus days".My grand daughters (5 y.o.) statement enjoying mum and dad being at (working from) home all day and no school.I could use it.I have opened my to do projects drawers to see what can i do to spend my time.First off a couple of damaged Strombecker Ferrari 250 GTO.The primered one has a damaged headlight opening and no windshield whereas the red one windshield full of glue and light damage on the body.



    I started with the grey one.I used blue staff to make a mould from the red one which i then fitted on to the grey one.

    I will fill the gap with epoxy glue later today

    I then tackled the windshield issue,i was lucky to have a 3rd allmost new one from which i used the windshield to make of gypsum and plasticine a vac form mould

    Windshield ready,side windows will be cut from sheet


    Chassis is printed in ABS

    Rims (front,to save wight) and inserts (for rear alu rims) printed also in ABS
