This is the Italeri kit, which has turned out to be a really great kit to build - I had practically no fit issues. I also found it to be a well detailed kit - the engine as well as the suspension is really great, and the wire wheels are also excellent considering they are plastic. A great kit of a stunning car!

Nice looking build!,this is one of my grail kits!,i was lucky enough to get one for X-mas,but the body was almost broken in half right down the middle,but I think it can be saved.

mclovin, hope it works out!

Two things I did notice which could be improved - the wipers seem slightly too big on the driver side, and are not chromed - I used parts box replacements. And the front side lights stick out like sore thumbs, on the 1:1 they are practically flush. I would try to open the mounting areas so that the lights can be sunk into the body.

Very nice Ferrari. I was wondering how these kits built up. Nicely done.

Superb. I wish the 1/12 Revell kit was even close to accurate.

Nice to see this kit being built! As a dyed in the wool Ferraristi I'm not crazy about the interior scheme.
