The 1791 Thinkshop and 87 Ideas Workshop

Front door for the secondhalf of my life using my time while disabled to become a book reviewer, editor, and blogger……. Advocating for Liberty and Veterans who suffer with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Memory Impairment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumas, and those with Crohn's Disease and Seizure Disorder. Of course too I may muster the courage to begin my Scale Models again but fight tremor so bad that it maybe something best to just hang up and sell off. I've lost nearly every enjoyable skill and struggle with the idea of "doing it at all if I can't do so to the ability I once had". I'm most busy with doctors appointments and maintaining my 118 Year Old House, My Shop, Ranting, Retirement, and More… This blog was begun right before my health, career, and entire life's direction was wildly changed, so though the page is 3+ years old, it is bare boned.

Time to kill my eyes with something else. Maybe I’ll sling some paint.

Ferrari 312T4 Autopsy

Attached is the box art of the 312T4… This is a highly detailed but broken edition. I will be breaking it down for parts and to build shop components to augment a Ferrari Garage Display. I will also get to practice my idea of using rare earth magnets to hold panels and some components in place. If successful I intend to incorporate into the new 1:12 kits an possibly into some 1:24/25 Enzo’s that I’m building (really unhappy with the fitment of rear engine bay door); maybe I’ll even open a hood on an Enzo or FXX.

Will take some componentry pictures late this week once I asses what damage is done. All the paint that I’ve seen must go and be redone. The body panels are not even painted, just clear coated on the outside. Many items appear to have been detail painted after being installed; I don’t want to build my T4 in the order of the instructions, so this autopsy will go along way for me to figure out how best with my skill set to build F1 cars.

Can be followed over in WIP pages-

Stay tuned
