Hi guys, sorry for the long delay with updating this build. As I worked on finishing this as well as working on other projects I didn't take as many photos along the way as I wanted to. Nonetheless, here are some of the last items I worked on as I finished this build up today. 

 

Simple floor mats are styrene painted black and a quick sprinkle of embossing powder on thinned white glue. Also added piping around the mat with Detail Master wire.

Also worked on the interior to finish it up. Added belts and harness bar behind the seats.

Moved on to the intercooler. Made this from styrene bits and some aluminum for the hose connections.

Also worked on the headlight buckets. Painted gloss black and added awesome MV lenses.

And here is where I lacked on the picture taking lol. Final assembly was done without any pictures as all the sub-assemblies were almost all completed prior. Here is the finished engine insert and one teaser of the finished model. She will be "under glass" soon! Thanks all for the kind comments and being patient with me over the past year as you followed along. I'm very happy with how it turned out and anxious to start a couple more projects.
