This is the recent release of the Academy "European Classic Car" kit which is essentially the Italieri kit, and the same as was released as a Testors kit back in the 80s.  No Ferrari decals come in this kit but I had a photo etch fret and some Ferrari decals that I bought from Ebay (even though I only needed the nose decal).

This is straight box stock meaning no extra details added except the Ferrari script and node decal.  I have worked on this is a filler project for a year or so.

The paint is Testors gloss Red Lacquer mixed with dept store lacquer thinner and and cleared with decanted Testors Wet Look clear.
