I love your research for every detail, no matter how small ...
Please show us mor my friend! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thank you very much, my friend. I must confess that I have always been very detailed and perfectionist (not only in the hobby), which in some occasions is almost more a disadvantage than an advantage. :lol:

Perhaps, Peter, you could contact the Vatican mobile park to convince them that your car's color is more practical for the popemobile than that pristine white that must be continually staining. :mrgreen:

By the way, among my long-term projects I have one to make a scale model of my own car (not white or gold, but dark blue). :winky:

Santi, I am very curious to see your next steps and the final result. I have never known how many different papal cars are existing.

I hadn't read the last posts yet, but as always I am very interested in the progress of your automotive projects. :yeah:

I was especially reassured that John Paul also drove a Ferrari. That certainly goes best with the red papal Prada shoes. I'm sure when Jesus and St.Peter were on the road at the weekend they also drove Ferraris and not Fiat like poor people. ;-)

Well, you are lucky, here is the result of the next step in the making of the popemobile. :mrgreen:

Fourth stage: painting of the car

This is the aspect of the all-white vehicle:

Wheels will be the next addition. ;-)

Santi,

I can see some "orange skin" on your car varnish. Not perfect! Must be an American car :mrgreen:
What will be the setting? The cheering crowd?
Patience, patience,....

Greetings

That driver will have a lot of work to keep that white clean. :-D

Looking good so far! :thumbup:

Can't wait to see the finished project. This looks already very promising - the unique painting style which seems to be out of this world is absolutely fitting for the topic!
