About this creation
Second entry of models to be used in the upcoming MegaMOC 2014.

First shown is the stock version.





-And now for the racing version;



Gulf-colours rocks, but those mudguards...?!





What to DO about the mudguards¿?
1) Change to normal blue, as the Gulf colour-scheme also exist for blue and dark-blue cars. (Against; A blue car already exist; the Viper)
2) PAINT the 4 mudguards in medium-blue. (Against; Not a purist tecnique)
3) Leave as is. (Against; Ugly)
4) Not having a medium-blue car. (Against; I want a car in Gulf-colours)
Edit; 5) As suggested in the comments (thanks guys!), one could do orange mudguards, which would keep the colour-scheme look intact. -But no Gulf-car ever had orange wheel arcs (methinks).

Finally, a photo of the two version together;


Ciao! (Never more appropiate... ;-)

That is such an interactive Moc... Did you send an e-mail to Lego engineers to get a new bright blue mudguard??... ;)

I don't think it looks that bad with DBG mudguards. You did the best you could in a purist fashion. ;)

I love the way that the orange and blue work together and brain can just edit out the mudguards!

The F40 is fab, and so are Gulf colours, but the two don't suit each other, I think. You'll need a Porsche 917 or Ford GT40. As for mudguards, I think using orange ones is the best suggestion.

Another great build! You've done an especially good job on the doors, which would appear to be difficult to model correctly at this scale.

I agree with Sam. I would replace the two cheese slopes at the bumper with 1x1 tiles and plates. But apart from that fantastic work on both versions. Especially the Gulf version is Epic :)

Lovely work! Not sure about the two cheese slopes at the very front, the way they're positioned gives it a round-ish effect. I wouls replace them with two 1x1 plates and 1x1 tiles. The side is incredible, beautifully shaped, and the rear is pretty good too! Top job!

Great work! In regards to the mudguard, I would suggest orange or to leave as is. I like where this mega-moc is heading, by the way!

I love how you shape these cars since the previous model. Should consider the rare orange overfender and changing the taillamp the round tile since the headlight brick has the round hole to represent the signal indicator.

Great Ferrari! This one is really good.

Love it, it's great to see the sloping sides featured. The only thing I would change is the cheese slopes at the rear, I think it would look better having them switched round so that the rear slopes upwards. Regarding the colour problem, I'd just leave it as it is. I've been forced to do the same with a project of mine, it's annoying when the piece you need doesn't come in the colours you need!

Seriously cool, Absolutely brilliant design. I'm torn between them, the red one screams all ferrari but the gulf colors looks really great too. And i agree, while it might not be accurate the orange fenders might make it look more complete :-)

Lovely couple of Ferraris! My favourite is of course the red one, That´s pure Ferrari, I like the Gulf version too. The Wheel arches are available in orange, I know it is not true to the colorscheme, but it´s the best compromize i can think of, and I guess it would look good. The Darkblue colorscheme won´t solve your problem.
