I will be building two examples. Only one is available. Please contact Mike for more information.

As I study the parts decisions will be made on any upgrades. A few have come to mind already. The body will be removable to view the internal details.

Lots of detailed photos here:

I was just revisiting this thread as I was so completely blown away by Peter's work on this particular model, and was disappointed to see that the photos are no longer showing. I realize Peter sadly passed away a few years ago, but does anyone have the pictures that were part of this build? Anyone know what happened to this particular model? It was my dream for Peter to build one for me, and I had started looking for a HIRO kit of this same model, but that will unfortunately never come to pass now.

New option for the GTO builds, hand painted driver figure based on the new MFH kit. Contact me for more details. miniwerks@earthlink.net Driver shown is Innes Ireland.

I mixed my own with tamiya acrylics. Use a white with clear blue until the color is exact to those on the decals sheet.

Hi Peter, Congratulations to this wonderful build!

I'm also considering painting the blue stripes instead of using the decals. But I'm having trouble to get the Maranello Concessionaires color right.

Did you use a paint off the shelf or did you mix your own? Any suggestion would be helpful.

Thanks and regards
Bernd

Yes...and the body off concept presented many challenges ;)
