The Palos Verdes Run-Arounders did a stunning job building the 1/24 Revell Ferrari California.  This build was not without it's challenges, but patience and persistence did pay off in the end with a stunning model.  I love the look of this car, but a 1/24 example is the closest I will come to the 1/1 machine.
