Wow, awesome! Will have a go at that video later today. It's always cool to see a piece come to life starting from sprues and showing the steps to go from there to the finished product.
As for the Rosso - is this the same Rosso who did the 1/8th scale 643 which I've built as well - about 30 years ago this year :D - the yellow thing in the box surely triggers some memories. I wish that parts of that model were carbon fibre, but they are just plastic with a few other bits and bobs made of metal (wheels, suspension bits) and the upper pre-painted bodywork in metal.

I am extremely happy with the Plastic body and pan with the metal tub, fuel tank , and transmission. The photo etch is very nice and easy to handle. I am also doing several Brands of Carbon Fibre/Kevlar decal work on the pan and parts of the tub also the correct parts that visible on the body/chassis. Great Kits I wish I could afford the 1/8 Rosso kit that has a real Carbon Fibre Body and assorted parts just like the real car. Now out of production they can be bought in the Thousands of dollars... I will try to post the 1/43 642 when done...Chris
Yes, post pics of the 642 once it's done, I'm interested to see the up-grade parts and how they work out.
