New WIP has been started on the 1/350 (LPD-21) USS New York (MRC/Gallery w/Pontos Detail Kit) on the following forums:
I will also build a page here for those that are outside those forums as well as some over on my FB shop page at: www.facebook.com/cwobeaman
Stay tuned, the unboxing will post in the next 24-48 hours…..
Go on over and check out my 1/350 (LPD-21) USS New York announcements and Wendy’s new creations.

So I got stumped on my big Ferrari builds and decided to build something different in order to break free from it. I have now figured out what. My block is with the Ferrari’s; I know this because the same is beginning to happen with the Ducati Desmosedici: I’m over working and thinking it. Those who know me are already aware that this is something I do often. Works great with books, writing, and philosophy. One would think that scale models are also a good place for such OCD behavior. After all, isn’t attention to detail, clean building, and patience a large part of being successful in the hobby? Not at the expense of enjoying the hobby and not completing projects. So while I’ll update where I’m at with the Ducati build, I’m going to also try to move faster through this one so I can reattack the Ferrari’s once complete. I’d like to build clean like David Thibideau.
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.
