    The below is another model from my early years in scale car modelling. In the previous days I decided to strip off the paint again and give this model another look. Let me share with you the photos in its early form:









    The new project is to give an aggressive image to this cute Ferrari. Thus, I decided to create a new image for a 458 Italia GT designed for track racing. Below are pictures for my inspiration:











    till next time....

    The build was always really nice but the paint was a bit rough. Still, you could tell it was an excellent modeller in the making!!

    This car is meant to be a track car, that is why I placed that emblem there.
