Classics! Is the Moby Dick by Solido?
I do have the Moby Dick Solido, but neither of those above are the Moby Dick.

1976 934 #55 by Minichamps
1976 935/76 #40 by Norev

Both are sealed, by the way. Here is the 1981 Solido Moby Dick 935/81 (doors open).

I like how yours already has the red side skirts and front lip. I had to remove black paint from mine

That was one of the updates from the Testarossa (yours) to the 512TR (mine). Not my style, but I have to say, that looks good!

The wheel choice is not final. But it's based on these inspirations

I'm also thinking about repainting it into a light blue. Would go well with the light interior. Then again I really like it in red. Sigh, I don't know

I don't mind are lowered car or different wheels, however, the camber here is truly absurd :)

Agree, excessive camber is not my style. For a model car no big deal, just sad to see it done on the real cars.

The camber is only there when the suspension is aired out. On the move it looks normal

Maybe it is something I discreetly wish not linked to Ferraris in general :money: :money:

That's how I feel about the RAUH-Welt modified Porsche 911s. ;)

I'm a huge Porsche fan, but for some reason, it feels more offensive with the Ferraris....that being said, the RWBs aren't for me.
