Ron built this beautiful Ferrari F50 for our True Scale Sports Car Class. It will be interesting to see how this body competes with the very popular Ferrari 458. The class specifies a production chassis - Scholer, Plafit, Slotting Plus or Scaleauto. Custom brass front and side pans are allowed. Power if from Deathstar or Proslot 16 D. These cars are fast and handle great. Also included is am image off the internet of a race car or model Ferrari 50 with a similar livery.

Ron is one of the guys that really takes pride in his builds. He is also the most prolific of our modelers. Below are some of his other builds.

Most are from kits - some of mine are aftermarket from various sources. Ron said he ordered some from overseas. I'll get you the link

Hello Joexemm,

 

May I suggest Pattos, Australia, who makes hundreds of decals, 1/24, duplicated in 1/32 and HO, for practically most anything raced most anywhere since the 1940's.

 

I was at a recent Mid Ohio ALMS race; Noted the Ferrari 458 Italia GTLM campaigned by Risi competizione, the American Houston, TX team that placed 2nd with its Ferrari 488 in the 2016 Le mans. Modified a Fujimi Street version kit body into the ALMS 458 GTLM and discovered Patto's had the correct decals.

His decals are somewhat difficult to work with- tear easily and dry somewhat thickly and not too smooth. After all, his decals aren't silk screen processed but ALPS printed. Require  careful clear coat finishing. As a source for almost anything- can't be beat.
