Ferrari 458 Italia (Red and White) . Well, here is the project that I have been working on the past few months. The bulk of the building was done in January, and since then I've been waiting on Bricklink orders and trying to take some decent photos. Now I know, I know, I already made a 458, But I just couldn't help myself from trying it again after several years of staring at the car. It's not that I didn't like the first model, I just wanted to try it differently. Borrowing heavily from the techniques of Malte Dorowski, an unbelievably creative individual (the "Porsche God" himself), the style of this car is different from what I've done in the past. While certain things definitely work much better on this car, there are aspects of my old design I wish I could have incorporated here. That being said, here (and I apologize in advance for taking too many) are the pictures: . First, some general shots of the car: Now some shots of the opening doors, boot and engine cover: Official 458 luggage set for the boot: The headlights: For the first time with this model, I was able to include the brake discs as well as the calipers; if you look closely, you will see the dark gray brake discs behind the rims: This was accomplished by using large Technic steering wheels as rims, and assembling the rest as shown here: Next some views of the Blu Scuro/Carta di Zucchero interior (notice the carbon fiber trim and the paddle shifters on the steering wheel!): And the 4.5 Liter, V8 engine for which the car is named: I love this shot, a view right over the engine to the front: Some details of the rear diffuser, and the brick-built Italian license plate: And what's this? It seems a white one has joined for a race! On your mark, get set, go! Some shots of the white version: And the custom black and white leather interior: Amazingly, my Ferrari mosaic is still complete, so I figured some group shots would be nice: As well as some group shots with their die-cast counterparts (and custom Hotwheels cars) I love the style of the available racing seats offered with the 458 Italia, and even though I had originally planned to use standard seats in the white car, I ended up building the racing style for both, just for fun: Finally, (and thanks for sticking with me, if you made it this far. If you skipped to the end, I won't blame you!), a final picture to leave you with Thanks for viewing! As always, any comments or ideas are welcome. Also, again, credit to Malte Dorowski for his curvy techniques, and a special thanks to BrickPicks and A Lot Of Bricks of Bricklink for great service and selection.
