I am not trying to be negative and I do not want to be picky. But firstly I must congratulate you on your build and its finish.
Just for information the Fujimi model is of the factory 330P4. But the NART and all private teams had converted P3 chassis P4 bodied cars. these were know by the factory as 412P and by the privateers 330P3/4. Confused so was , but the only noticable bodywork difference are that the
Works 330P4 (three made as coupes)
1) On the P4 this had two nose intakes as on your Fujimi.
The 412P and 3/4's(same spec cars) had one centrally placed
2) The bottom of the doors on the P4 were not level with the bottom of the rear clip.
The 412P and 3/4's(same spec cars) the bottom of the rear clip was level with the bottom of the doors
Another thing set to confuse was there was a fourth works 330P4 factory built car that was based on the 1966 330P3 and won the 1967 Daytona in spyder form. This car ran as a works spyder Number 20 before crashing and being written off.
For the 1967 BOAC 500 a works 330P4 coupe was rebodied into spyder form being driven by John Surtees.
Once again you have done a great job and in no way was my comments meant to be a criticsim.
This P4 and P3 thing has caused a lot of confusion in the past. I hope this helps.
Regards Allan

Nice Job CB Racing, a really nice job.

The old P4 / 412P problem is a rivet counters wet dream, but don't worry even some of the specialist model companies have got it wrong in the past.

I have just got the Fujimi kit to convert (into a P4 slot car
) and it looks great, I hope I do as good a job as you have.

EDIT Can a moderator please tekll me why the word 'Slot' above has had a rather dubious link added to it, NOT by me... grrrr

EDIT interesting, when the page reloaded after my edit the link had gone ??? what is going on, the word 'doors' in Allans post has also gained a 'text enhance' advert?

First, thank you for like I'm building.
Then I want to thank you for the information regarding P3/P4 cars.
I've looked around a bit online and see that they have slightly different versions of the Ferrari cars. But the next 330 will be No. 26 of Fujimi, so when I do not get confused.

cheers
