Step 1 : Kit Review (more detail)

Fujimi 1/24 Uma Uma Decal

The characteristic of Fujimi 1/24 Uma Uma Decal is a screen printing. The itasha decal of the other makers are offset printing. However, they have a fault that is transparent. Therefore the dark color was unsuitable for a body. Fujimi chose screen printing which was hard to be transparent for this reason.

Comparison with other maker's itasha decal.

Proportion Check

I searched many pictures of the Uma Uma Ferrari in the Internet. I printed them and made the scrapbook for modeling.

The exterior proportion is good! The tread of the both front wheels are slightly narrow. However, the adjustment will be easy.

There are some mistakes for interior. The back side of cabin is coupe type design. Lower right picture is F430 coupe.

Left picture is F430 spider. I will remodel this part.
