Sorry. This was as far as I could get in two weeks. Too much going on with this. I learned too that I should have trimmed the hood before painting since the hood barely fits and I damaged the paint. Looks like I have some repairs ahead of me.

Maybe I'll have it done for the next one.

Here's as far as I made it. Not sure if I'll finish it. I'd like to, but the hardest part is yet to come. Thanks for getting me going on something I used to love doing when I was a kid.

Ha, that's awesome. Pretty sure I got this kit when we had our Innocenti Mini. Glad to finally get it together.

You're welcome! Happy to host another one, too.

But first I need to collate everyone's done photos into one thread or post and pick a winner for the free kit. I have to say though that everyone that participated won in my eyes. Hearing so many stories about picking the hobby back up after years or decades, getting kids involved, and learning new skills were really inspiring to me. You all rock! Thank you for building with me!

Put the win in one post on this thread. I will start another thread for May 2nd finish and donate a kit. I have over 100 to choose from.

Thank you, TurnerX19. Very generous of you. 

The big question: Do I have another no-glue, no-paint kit here in my office?

Yes, definately. This was like one of those couch-to-5K races.

Awesome stuff, guys!  My favorites are the blue Porsche, the dirty Rally Focus, and the green Miura.  Very cool, makes me wish I didn't sell the old Datsun 510 kit that I had.  I've only done a couple model kits in my whole life, but this makes me want to do one with my son!  Been off work for 2 weeks, but I go back on Monday.  Maybe I'll have to try to do one if you guys do a round 2 of this.

Welp, this one will have to compete in the 'WIP' division.  Didn't get it done, started to rush it and things went south so will shelve it to complete later.  I did learn a bunch that I can apply to the next one.  I actually decided not to sand and clear it as it looks more realistic in the Satin Red finish.  Lots of great finishes here.  Hope to catch wind of the next build off car show ;)

There's a lot of nice models built on short notice. I never thought purple would work on a Testarossa but it really does, and the blue notchback is really eye catching as well.

This thread made me happy.  Thank you to everyone that built and photographed.  Just seeing a reference to Autoworld brought me back to my early 80's youth.
