Ferrari 312T4 rebuild... finished!
Posted by PatrickN on Thursday, August 22, 2019 3:13 PM

Years ago, I built this kit and to be honest, I did a REALLY BAD JOB on the side pods and the top. So I bought a donor kit and am starting over with it.

I am using IndyCals (thanks, Michael) and doing paint for the white instead of the provided decals. Lots of paint and polish but it's getting there Note the correct color orange for the side pods and the lack of brush strokes and glue snots!

And the newly painted nose... no decals will be harmed. This is a 1/12th scale kit.

That really is a well done rebuild.  Nice shine on the paint.
