    By the way, look for a few transkits to go with those FPPM wire wheel sets. Fernando has some very interesting plans for the 1/12th Italeri Monza kit :)

    A few 1/24th scale models available or coming soon on the Shapeways site under " chaparral bilingham". Thanks to Pico Elgin for the heads up. More stuff coming from several different people in 1/24th scale including Pico of some very interesting cars. Printed bodies and parts seem to be the new trend for rare car models although it is not an inexpensive process yet. Still its less than a lot of resin kits cost now.

    Very nice Marcel, if there is a Ferrari that should not use shields, this is the one, looks so clean and classy without them, i still don't understand those pictures showing a red one with Shields!!

    Sorry one question that you may know the answer. What are the locations for the Ferrari SF90 US tour? Andrew Menasce on the Chicago threads asked but got no response.

    Anyhow, interesting kit, never done at this scale before.
    Tom, the pictures do not show, could you kindly reload?
    Never heard of Silver City Models before. Is there more information (website,...)

    The pictures show up, so its your computer or your not signed in. They sell SilverCityModels on ebay. Don't know much about them but quality is ok. 1/25th is the Indy scale, sorry. I like 1/24th but what can you do.

    Sorry, pictures are not available. I tried from 4 independet computers and 2 browsers.
    Currently no result on ebay.
    I also prefer 1/24, but I know 1/25 is Indy scale. Might be an option for me when kit is good.

    Great stuff.... It's been awhile since I've been excited about a kit, especially after the underwhelming and inaccurate MFH 365 Daytona kits.

    Yay Italeri and yay Fernando Pinto!!!

    Pretty rare to see a plastic car kit from this era that was not released many years ago. Bravo Italeri….

    Can't wait to see the Lemans car transkits from FPPM :). You will be able to build the Monaco winner and Lemans winner from the same driver.
