For the time being, this will be a place holder for my build thread for the 1:12 scale Tamiya Enzo Ferrari.

A photo preview of the kit box, cursory view of kit contents, and some details.

From every indication, this is a very faithful, highly detailed reproduction of the well known Enzo Ferrari. I am very much looking forward to this build, but must finish a couple of projects first before starting this one. DSCN2906.thumb.JPG.ab62e61a81717d7562e9d578ada4ed3d.JPGDSCN2908.thumb.JPG.8d5d4cc2b3b1260292bdc81d9044b86e.JPGDSCN2909.thumb.JPG.622e5796819329f751557c9b9281da91.JPGDSCN2907.thumb.JPG.d71cbdd9f10da301196e46ea146e2aec.JPG

Me three, I love Tamiya kits. This should be fun.

The engineering and fit of Tamiya products is superb. Their dedication to superior products means fewer new releases than other companies, but when they do release a new item, it's right on the money every time.

Denis, folks who put out bird feeders for our feathered friends end up attracting Da Bears. We have a pretty active black bear crew around here in the mountains.

My kids and grand kids rented a house in the mountains of Tennessee this summer. They were surprised when a big black bear jumped into the back of one of their pickup trucks.

been lucky in that respect.......all we've seen so far are possums,  skunks,  and one appearance by a raccoon.   every once in a while,  we even get to see turkeys out in the field across the street.  but as the squirrels and chippies congregate at the feeders,  the hawks come call'in.  we know because the Blue Jays sound the alarm!

I have decided to finish the Enzo Ferrari in a carbon fiber body finish. I've seen another one finished this way and it looks quite remarkable. Am hoping I can manage to duplicate the finish I saw, but it's a first, new attempt at this and it doesn't look easy by any means. 

Before laying down the decals, the body must first be painted in a satin black as the decals are clear and the black must show through.

The carbon fiber decal set is by Scale Motorsports. Each of the nine sheets are template printed on the back and must be cut out before application. I found out after receiving this set, it calls for Scale Motorsports Decal Magic setting solution so I just placed an order for the solution. Wouldn't want to chance using some other make of setting solution and ruin these expensive decals.

I have been looking for quite a while at those pics. I would have believed anyone telling me these are pics of the real car, and not a model.

When these kits came out, they were selling for $600. I kept watching (for a few years actually) until I found one on Ebay that was auctioned, and I snagged this kit for a measly $227. I offered the seller a best offer of $250 which he turned down and ended up getting it for even less. Would have never bought one for the full retail price although it's very hard to find one for the discount I got.

I have the McLaren F1 from Model Art. This is not a kit, but is at the same scale as your Ferrari. Made of metal, plastic and rubber parts. I bought it in Europe about 25 years ago, when the car came out.

Your McLaren looks just like the real thing, beautiful!

CDW, I'm like Popeye, waiting to see you build your Enzo. I love Ferraris & watched Phil Hill & Pedro Rodriquez drive at Daytona & Sebring back in 1962 or so. I must have at least 60 Ferrari models built. Mine would have to be red. My wife & I would stop at the Ferrari dealer over in Greensboro NC & photograph everything they had. Even tho I drove up in a Subaru, they were real nice & let me have fun.

         They had Porsche & Ferrari & Maserati Bentley & Aston Martin, nothing cheap. Needless to say, I didn't trade my Subaru.

  I took this of Lorenzo Bandini at Daytona in 1967, he won.129806258431132640.jpg
