View Full Version : For those who can't wait....

2011.07.22, 09:49 AM

I was in my local hobby shop (115kms away) and I was looking at some new model kits.

Long story short, I bought the new Revell Ferrari 458 kit to maybe do a build and I'm happy to report the wheelbase is 106mm and the width just about matches +3 rear and +1 front.

In case anyone doesn't want to wait for kyosho to make a 458...

Stay tuned for my build...don't think it'll be a typical mini-z conversion.

Good luck with the build.
Would you mind giving some details about the method you'll be using for the conversion?
Got to love these projects. :D

Got any pics ? Have you done the adaptation yet?

Looking forward to this - I've got a lot of unbuilt plastic model kits in my closet, and I'm going to try and see if there is anything I can use. Glad to hear that the 458 is a near match.

I haven't done anything to this as of yet.

I'm a bit unconventional with my constructs.

While it'd be fun to build an mr02-03 conversion I forsee something a bit different where I can laminate some cf fabric onto the actual model base and work a couple a-arm suspensions into the mix. That and a motor layout like the Ferrari (longitude V8 and incorporating a rear diff?) will be kind of special.

This project will come after two other ideas I'm trying to wrap my head around. 
