My Ferrari F40 (Centauria)

Postby Betto » Sat Feb 23, 2019 3:25 pm

Well, today I decided to show you something about my last subscription: the Ferrari F40 Competizione by Centauria

Image

Image

Image

I broke the right tie :( :oops: and I had to repair it with superglue... I hope it will resist till the end of the build... december 2020 :o

Image

The ties are made of metal, quite weak. One of the holes on the bumper was full of sand and I broke it trying to put it in...

Ciao to everybody.
Merci Olivier.
Today I want to show you some progress I made with the engine.
It is well detailed and easy to assemble

And the dashboard, coming from earlier issues

That's all for the moment.

Or is it the same pic? I assume yours is the actual model part?

Ciao Number1.
I think the pic posted by Samets is coming from a real car, I just noticed that in my model also the writing F40 is reversed...
I am going to check if I can fix or I have to ask for a new issue.

I am afraid it is not possible, if I remember well it was a piece coming already sticked.
I am not at home now but when I will be I'll check it.

Hi, the main body of the engine is metal but many parts, as the head covers, are plastic of good quality.

Looks great so far. I'm very jealous that this kit isn't available in the US, as I would love to build it.

Have you made any progress since your last post? Any luck reaching out about the reversed dash printing?

Ciao.
I am still collecting, but I suspended the build because of lack of time, I think I will go on during Christmas holidays.
Happy Christmas! :)

Very cool! Are you building the kit exactly as it comes, or have you added any extra details?

It looks great so far. I just placed my subscription the other day, so I can't wait to start receiving issues. I'm sure I'll be referring to your build thread throughout the process as a good guide.

Thanks Dustin.
I am not adding anything, it is just "out of the box".
