Maranello Le Mans 24h Special Edition

hello everybody,
After the CLK SiFi, it is time to present you a new paint job .

The idea: A paint job on a Maranello basis to celebrate the anniversary of the last great victory of Ferrari at the 24 hours of Mans... 40 years ago: thus an old school and modern design at the same time...

I sought in the files of Le Mans and I found an old poster of 1954 and one photograph of the champion car of the last victory of 1965.
the poster and the Champion car

I drew the project on my computer with the assistance of my friend Alain.
I had to start from that:
The base

To finish with something similar to this:
The project

I used plastic card to modifie the rear of the car :
Body modification

and after a few hours of airbrush and final improvement to the fine brush, here is body in integral painting as usual (without stickers).
Maranello Le Mans Special Edition 1
Maranello Le Mans Special Edition 2
Maranello Le Mans Special Edition 3
Maranello Le Mans Special Edition 4
Maranello Le Mans Special Edition 5

I hope you'll like it

Same pics but in bigger size :

jo67,
That is sweet looking. Are you going to race it? It almost wants to make me get out my airbrush, but I doubt if I could get my Zs to look that good after I repainted them.

TNB my artistic skills have not progressed much since I was in kindergarten so my best work is done with Crayons. This would give you more than 120 different crayon colors to choose from if you where commission me as an artist.

Attached is an artistís rendition of a pair stick cats that I found on the web (Warning: my work may not be as good) if I where to attempt a pair of stick cats.

Does anyone now ware there are more photos of jo67ís cars I really like his work?
