Thank you Tim.
This is the kit of the Ferrari Tipo 500 or 500F2, 1/20, from Model Factory Hiro.

Awesome work Pascal, your build is a perfect exercise into why I love these kits so much...
People say to me, Gosh aren't they expensive??? I reply, if you know nothing about modelling, then yes maybe!!! But they are complete, buy the kit and you have everything and more in the box, no need to buy any expensive aftermarket paraphernalia. 8)

Hi,
Riet D, Alexander, thanks for the nice comments.

Small progress today with the low body painted in red.
I've tested a low sheen clear coat on a rough part painted in red (a part of a 312PB).
I'm still wondering wether I'll use 2K or Low sheen to depict the 1951 paint finish...
I've also work on the exhaust. I didn't like the rear end of the exhaust provided, so I machined a new one in a piece of aluminum.
The original "pipe" was cut off and replaced with the new one.
More to come soon I hope.

Hi,
Just few words to tell you that as I wasn't really happy of the result of the opened louvers on the lower part of the body, I ordered a new part to redo a better work.
