This is the excellent 1/24 scale Hasegawa kit of the famous Ferrari Testa Rossa 250 pontoon fender as she appeared in the 1958 24 hours of Le Mans race. I spray-painted the body shell Tamiya Racing White, and polished her up with Micro Mesh abrasive 3200 grit before giving her a couple of coats of Tamiya Clear. Once the clear was dry, I polished again with Micro Mesh in increments up to 12000 grit, with a final rubbing using Novus #2, then #1. Next I applied the most excellent Cartograf decals that were included with the kit. The upholstery was spray-painted with Tamiya Dull Red.
My name is Bob, and I'm from Raleigh, NC. I'm a gulf war veteran and an avid modeler for about 25 years now. Main interest is motorsports. Straight line, Le Mans, F-1, JGTC, Rally, INDY and Sprint racing... I love it all, and I want each of my builds to reflect my crazy passion for motorsports and plastic modeling in general. I stray now & again to other subjects, and I do make time for a fun project after finishing up an intense build. I also restore old plastic models, but opening a new box of fresh styrene will always be my favorite thing! So....stop by and say hello!
