    ferrari california

    Post  el manolo on Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:48 pm

    my next new build:

    Ferrari California by Revell. The usual drawback from Revell, the wheels are small to fit the deep wheel well of this blue California. I am thinking of a new custom designed set of wheels.

    The first reference pic:

    The problem is that the wheels might be small for the california wheel well.

    21" in size.

    Looking good, one curiousity as you go into lengths doing 3D designs and printing why not also create the rubber with proper thread. I am saying this I myself have an allergy at vynl tyres, we have always the concern that on AFVs these tyres will split or react to plastic by time, to be honest it sometimes happen, so when there is an option I prefer to change to resin items, now having that oportunbity to create proper 3D designs I would also opt doing the rubber with the rim ... x'tahseb?
