It looks good so far John.

I just bought the 1:12 version of this from Ebay. I got it at a good price because there are no decals with the kit. Anyone know where I can get them?

I've found some 1:12 Ferrari emblem decals, if nothing else I might just dummy it up as a generic Ferrari with no numbers or other decals other than the emblems. A "roll out" version perhaps.

You could try these: http://www.f1special...ersions/fb2.php
If you have time to wait, you could keep your eyes on ebay for them. Sets do become available occasionally: http://www.ebay.co.u...t-/250909234688
Hobby Link used to do them but they now appear to be discontinued: http://www.hlj.com/s...p;ei=1323900856

Thanks. I think the conversion kit from F1 specialties might do the job. It's not the full set, but with the addition of some Ferrari emblems it will probably be close enough.

The body panels in these kits are injection moulded polyester resin, the bulk of the remaining parts are cast white metal. rather different to your average plastic kit.

I see a lot of these fantastic kits but very little evidence on many of them actually being built! You're doing a superb job John, great attention to detail. I particularly like the pallet...

Thanks for that. I've never had the privilege of seeing one.
Fabulous result, John. I'm delighted to see thet Seppi has snuck into one of the photos :up: :)
