My  IPMS branch has just started an impromptu Ferrari Group Build and ive dug out this ancient kit from the stash. got it on ebay years ago. i have no idea how old this particular kit is but the decals and instructions have both gone yellow with age

I drove one of those around Prestwold Hall and got it sideways at a good clip in 3rd gear.

I have a soft spot for them ever since.

Never seen one getting built up, I'll be watching Paul.

You are a mad man Shay.

Good luck with this Paul, IIRC this kit doesn't have that great of a fit.

It has a reputation as an evil handling car Curt, but I found it easy enough with a touch of opposite lock.

I guess I was just lucky. I wasn't exactly smoking the tyres. lol

It would still look good as a kerbside Paul, just glue it all together if it's really bad.
