Unfortunately, as you can see in the second photo, it's missing a hood pin, which is nowhere to be found in the box or anywhere else. I'll be keeping the model, but that's kind of annoying.

EDIT: I just noticed it's also missing the shifter.
Nice addition. One of the cleanest and most refined models in my collection. Sorry to hear about the misses. Did you try contacting BBR? Also, there are some aftermarket options here, Wes can surely elaborate more.
I didn't buy it from BBR, I bought it on eBay. I found the shifter, but it has come off. It's such a great piece otherwise, I would love for it to be able to fix it somehow.

Doesn't matter. See if they have something in the parts bin that can help otherwise looks at aftermarket replacement.

replace both hood pins so it looks symmetrical. No one will ever know. There are lots of varieties on ebay

Thanks for the help. What should I search for on eBay?

Also, I am pleased to announce the arrival of a Ferrari model that isn't broken or missing anything: :D

I would start by searching "photoetch hood pins" or "PE hood pins", also known as bonnet latches or dzus fasteners, and any permutation in between. Detail Master, Hobby Design, and a few others make them. Most importantly, get Microscale Kristal Klear for them. It's a strong glue that dries clear and will not damage the paint.

I think i used the wrong website.
CK modelcars had them in stock some weeks ago for 209 euro IIRC. They have non in stock now, but maybe send them an email to ask if they will receive more?
