So we're almost half way through the ford gt kit and it got me thinking.... I would LOVE to see the iconic Ferrari 330 P3 that was ford's big rival from the '66 le mans race. The 2 cars together would look stunning, especially in the same scale and detail. With its mighty v12 powerhouse it would make one serious model to boot.

The Ferrari 330 P3 is such a beautiful car, just love the aggressive curves on that thing! Love Drool Cool

I have looked several times at the 1:12 scale 'Full Detail' kit of the 330 P3 on the Model Factory Hiro website with a lot of desire, but there are so many other desirable kits on there that choosing just one would be very hard to do!

The MFH 1/12 330 P3 is a beautiful kit, but apparently it is a BEAR to assemble-probably because of all the compound curves.I have seen quite a few people struggle to get the body parts to fit properly-especially the doors.

I bought the 330P4 MFH kit and what they say is true; the bodywork needs a LOT of fitting , door hinges aren't very good complicating matters, some builders just left the doors open. Equally challenging is the chassis and exhaust, I spent a week assembling the exhaust pipes alone. other than winng Spa and Daytona I don't think it had very good racing record--I'd still buy it though in 8th scale.................

I'm aware of other kits on the market, like Many other subject matters. Having one in 1/8 scale with metal body, high details etc that we expect from de agostini would be awesome, especially along side the gt40. The 2 cars on display together would mighty impressive given their infamous rivalry at the '66 le mans 24. Plus as mentioned, it really is a gorgeous looking car with them curves

Yes that’s certainly a build I’d be interested in as long as someone involved actually had a real car to get the details correct which could be difficult as I don’t think Ferrari made as many as the GT40 so being allowed access to an original could be tricky 😩

It's a model I had contemplated scratch building in 1/8.
Too many things on the go at the moment though.
