I put 2 trans-clear 24116 panels together last week and it looked like a Dino rear window. After a lot of experimenting with the new black panels with the old black panels....

I haven't started the rear yet and the chassis is just a mule. I'd like to do the full tan interior (Kenobi will soon be missing his codpiece).

Very nice. The front reminds me of the Citroen DS though, I think it can do with a little less taper down of the hood, but maybe it is also because of the angle of the shot.
The rear looks greatI especially like the top flexaxle that shapes that rear fin

It sure looks like Dino 246, but last picture from photography angle give us illusion of (to) big headlights. Rear window idea is cool James. :thumbup:

I'm loving this build, you your build style is ever evolving. Can't wait to see what you do with the bodywork. You have a interesting build style, with the bodywork completion before the interior. I'll be following this build! Thanks for sharing once again @JamesJT

Very nice Ferrari you`re building there :wink:! Always cool to see what you are doing with the bowed panels / 6x3 panels, now in black.

Did you consider to bow the roof a little bit by connecting the 3 panels by 5L beams so that the outer panels can "hang" on 1 pin each? Then one could connect them by short flex axles some way... Regarding the headlights: I also think they rather should be 2 stud wide.

And - tan interior sounds very good :thumbup:!

Ironic as DS was on my list but I thought the nose would be tricky. I think it was the camera angle so I took another from a different angle.

Yes, it all started with the rear window, its my favorite part of the build so far.

I'm using this blueprint.

The rear lights scale at 2L, the front are 3.6S so at 3 studs my lights are a little too small. My lights maybe too close together or too high, I haven't checked yet

Any special bits planned for the chassis? Gearbox?

No plans except; If doors open it will highly detailed with gearbox and transverse V6. If the doors don't open I'll make its as light as possible and RC. I am planning a blue version of the Spider (GTS?)

Thanks. You have an instantly recognizable style too and a PRO tag too! Well done, dude.

I keep wanting to add more "shape" to the roof but the blueprint shows it so very flat. I will resist building how I want to to look for now.

 

The rear is coming together slowly; more pictures on Flickr later tonight.

I've finished the outside of my Dino. Just need to sort out the chassis and interior.

Is anybody going to want to build this? Is it worth making instructions? I must be on to something good as TLCB wanted to blog the WIP pictures.

From this perspective it looks really well done :thumbup:

Agree. As well I agree regarding the roof. I like it already very much as it is. Curious about the chassis. The suspension setup looks like this and I like it :thumbup::sweet:!

It was too low at the back, I moved the shock mounting point but now its too high. I will fix it when I finish the chassis.

I've got door cards and seats but no dash yet.

I also added chrome exhausts and pointed them upwards a little.
