Thank you Ken! Me too........I am somewhat open to paint ideas for this car. Still not sure what livery for it yet  :wacko:

 

bodywork is amazing, can't wait to see more.

 

Thanks Chris! Will get back at it after today's show.

Finally an update!!....but not much of one. Got the engine painted and the pass side turbo mounted (still needs a little filling here and there) lot of scratchbuilding which is taking a lot of my time. Oh well enough of the pity-party! Oh yeah, the gray is just an undercoat on the turbo.

 

Picture of the real engine.....

Sorry Bob, progress has been slow going due to work. A little progress, but not much.
