David...does the SMS CF set have all the CF for the monocoque, brake ducts and other items or is just for the outside body panels?

Thats a real nice job! EXCELLENT work. :)

I am part way throgh this project as well, but you are much further down the line then me. I am only half way through the engine build.

I am curious about the SMS carbon fibre decals though. I contacted Matt the other day and he says the decals are not yet available. Am I just being silly here, or have you got a 'pre-production' set?

Matt also says a PE set is coming out. If it is anything like their 1/24 set it will be amazing. I am waiting for this before making any further progress on my Enzo.

Keep up the good work on this project.

Thanks Guys,
The deadline for this build is looming so I have blasted ahead to get it done! Those of you interested it will be in Toledo on Oct 6th at the Scale Motorsport Vendor Booth with Matt Wells.
As you can see, its close to completion.... The doors were assembled and installed.. They work pretty cool with a spring assisted mechanism. They fit really tight as per tamiya but what a pain to reopen. I will suggest to Matthew to display them open anyways to show off all the CF work on the inside of the interior and door skins.

The front clip is not permanantly mounted yet, but the front bonnett is. It is installed with metal hinges all screwed together. It works perfectly! If you look carefully you can see I added CF to the underside of the lid as well.

The engine is complete as well

Look at that CF air cleaner!

Carbon goodness!!!
