    I feel your pain...on a daily basis. Currently completing a 330 P4, Lancia 037 and 62 GTO. it is a bottomless pit of detail.

    Decided to pass on the Profil 312...just not interested in the multitude of resin parts that only lead to more work machining and fabricating better parts.

    As an ex-factory Scaglietti spyder (0428), the rear arches of the #2 should be completely rounded...

    I think the body has a few minor issues, but still looks very good. Part of the problem I see might be caused by the wide angle lens he used. Knowing his previous work the real resin body will be almost perfectly shaped. Wheel arches will need tweaking.

    Coming soon from Studio 27(artwork by UMI) this very cool 1/24th scale decals for the Ferrari Dino 246 from the 1971 Marathon de la route at SPA. Will fit the Fujimi 1/24th Dino. A "hippie" Ferrari has finally been found :)

    Correct, ultimate Group B car
    But 037, T16, 6R4 and RS200 also very nice group B cars.

    I stopped listing them due to the quality...Kind of like sculptures more than detailed models.

    FPPM Fernando Pinto models has really been releasing the 1950's sports car and vintage GP kits at a fast pace... He has a few more planned for this summer, 2 of wich will blow your minds if you like important 1950's sports cars that have never been done in 1/24th scale before. One is a very important red race car with a 12 cylinder motor.

    Any word of a kit of the 488 GTB?

    I would think Fujimi or one of the small 1/43 kit makers would have one out by now.
