My first of 2 attempts at super-detailing/refinishing a model car in about 12 years.

Also my first frey into 1/32 (used to do 1/24 statics exclusively).

F355 Challenge
I picked up these 2 rather "rough diamond Policar Ferrari F355 slot cars. There seem to be very few contemporary Ferrari slot cars available in 1/32 scale.

Before




After









The cars came in a rather toy-like red plastic finish, with no details. I made up some decals, and scavanged some etched parts and used my parts-bin to do this rushed-job at detailing the first one.

I decided to try for a look as if the car was a factory F335 "GT" rather than just a Challenge car.

That interior repaint is a very nice touch!

Are the wheels repainted too, or have they been replaced?
Thanks - the wheels are just repainted. I have installed Detail Masters drilled rotors since that picture...


Now I just need to round up some smaller rear rotors..

Excellent job


I just finished the Spyder (see Here) and was wondering how you got the grill effect for the back panel? What did you use etc.
Also do you have a webiste or contact details for those Detail Master discs?
Can you not just turn them down for a smaller diameter disc?
