You are doing a superb job with this kit. I built and found it challenging but rewarding. Looks great when completed. Are you going to paint the red or use the decals?

Looking fantastic! I built this kit too - please be careful of a fitment issue on the rear hatch, it doesn't go on properly.

I will use the red decal stripes.

I know this kit is famous for that. I did allot of work to fix that including getting rid of the mounting post that attach cahsssis to the body.  I then made that air intake at the back of the side window one piece as on the real car. I also covered that stupid notch in that area. Some plastic was added to make it fit better.

Yes, sweet, clean work. I especially like the slight scuffing effect on the (PE?) brake rotor faces...very realistic.

Awesome looking build. Your detailing is amazing.  I agree with Bill about the brakes, and the interior detail is the best I've ever seen.

The brakes are photo-etch sanded in a circular motion with 1000 grit sand paper.

Beautiful work on an amazing car. I have the Protar 1:12 F40 in my collection of "not finished" and builds like this are an inspiration to pull it out and get back to work on it.
