In the meantime, I have a Revell Ferrari 250GTO - a car that I idolised in the early '60s - at least until the Cobra and the GT40 came along. I have got on quite well with it. There has been a lot of fuss in the magazines and the Internet regarding new Royal Mail regulations regarding paint. It has got so bad that Hannants now refuse to ship any aerosol paint at all - it is for local collection only! I have found that these are easily and cheaply obtained on EBay and Amazon. I paid £8.99 with free delivery for my rattle can of metallic blue and also to Amazon for the can I am using now - Revell Ferrari red. This seems to belie the "we cannot ship aerosols". It isn't quite list price but manageable.
Anyway, I have got on very well with the kit. Here is where I am. Firstly, here is the chassis:
You will notice that I haven't used etched brass seat belts. They are a lot of work and, inside a hard top, they really cannot be seen. I will save them for the next open top car. Here is a shot of the dashboard, which looks quite good.
Lastly, here are the other body parts.
I have got on quite well since then so I will post some more tomorrow. I do hope to have it finished soon as it is the Clacton club meeting is on Thursday and I want to take it with me.
