Custom Classico Colleczione: Ferrari 1948 166MM

Received this classico collezione Ferrari 1948 166MM (about scale 1/40) from my friend Shakz7 in very bad condition as he asked me to restore this car for him to original condition. The body paint was very bad and paints peel of almost every part of the surface.

The engine bay was on plain black plastic colour when i've opened the front bonnet lid.

Now every parts are removes as pictures shown below.

The casting body now was hard sanding for smooth surface after removal of paint.
All the casting line at the edges are now eliminated . some paper clip are used here for support the front bonnet lid cover.

The casting now sprayed with primer coat. The engine bay now was given new coat of chrome paint.
Another view of the engine bay and the custam made support stand for the bonnet lid cover
are placed nicely at the side of the engine.

And here's the final stage. Simple spray of new coat of paint all over.

Next: Full complete restoration pictures. Will upload later.

HotWheel Custom Subaru Police Car

NO mistake! it's not Tomica. This Hotwheel Subaru Custom Japanese police car has complete about 4 months ago and well kept inside my display shelf for quite a long time. I've forgotten to post it because quite busy lately.

The custom of this police car are base on tomica subaru police car as model reference. That's why many people mistaken it for tomica car, hehe..... . The added items are radio antennas to roof top and rear trunk, standard custom V shape police lighting to roof top and gold coloured rims painted to the originals wheels.

comparison to tomica's subaru police car and you can see the difference
as both of these car pictures taken side by side,
