Ferrari Enzo

Post by spunkybob on Wed 26 Aug 2015, 4:46 pm

Hi All,

I have been working on this Ferrari Enzo my wife brought be over a year ago.
Most of it is working out well but I have found that this kit is making me hate this kit Smile

My current issue is that the main chassis is not flat (warped or something) so when i glue the engine on it doesn't dry correct even after holding it in place for a long time.
Any tips on how to get this thing flat?



On the other hand the engine is coming along great!

Have you tried immersing it in hot water, as hot as you can get without being boiling, and then clamping or weighing it down on a flat surface and letting it sit for 24hrs?
I've used this trick a number of times with styrene kits and have had good results.

Cheers
