I built this about 10 years ago, time flies. I used the Scale Motorsports superkit on it, plenty of PE and CF decals. It was quite a task just doing the CF decals on the air ducts and interior tub. So I'll start off with some WIP photos so you can see what you can't see with the body on top.






Interior:





Some chassis detailing:



Completed car:

Lovely job that. That amount of CF on a kit makes me wince after I did the LaFerrari. I hate the stuff.

Nice job Mike.

I have this one in my stash only with the Mobil decal set.

Carbon decals always seem to be needed on large and small compound curved parts! Make me nuts just thinking about the patience it takes to get them to lie flat. Excellent model work, right down to the chrome straps for the flexible brake ductwork. Thanks for sharing an inspiring build!

Great job on this. I agree with the comments on the cf decals. Very tough to do. I have this kit in my stash too.
