Tamiya LaFerrari Chassis

I love Tamiya kits. This is just going together so nicely. Mind you, I am taking it slowly and carefully. I am not making my usual stupid mistakes (well, just one - I have left a poly cap out of one of the wheels so it will have to be glued in place).

I have had to buy a couple Tamiya paints to do the kit. This must be the first time that I have bought Tamiya paints since we started the shop in 2006. I had to buy a pot of XF-7 red to get the right colour onto the rocker covers. Talking paint, I have to buy the correct red for the car. Checking with Hiroboy I am told that this is Corso Rosso 322. Hiroboy can mix any known car colour, provided that the mix is in the database and they have a good record of which red was used when by Ferrari. This is a Zero Paint, which needs special thinners, etc. so I have placed an order with Hiroboy for the paint and a can of thinners. I have also purchased the specific yellow that goes with the Chevrolet Corvette C7 for which I have the Revell kit. This will be my next car project after the LaFerrari and finishing the M3.

Anyway, this is where I am now (with a few sequence shots along the way).
