Completed my first kit, have a dozen more to learn and hone skills on alongside this one, but this one gets the special treatment. I'm planning on practicing new techniques on the other victims...er...cars before applying them to this build.
Starting with the engine, and already have several modifications/fabrication projects in mind for it.
Using a couple good shots of restored 50/51 engines for detail, plus my own indepth knowledge of the cars, I'm planning on adding some improved hardware to the carb, fabbing proper bail wires for the valve covers, copper line for the fuel lines, accurate wiring...and well, you get the picture. The rest of the car will get similar treatment over the course of several months.
It's just dry fitted here, and the cylinder tin/fan shroud is in primer. Going to be repainting the case and cylinders with metallizers.
Question for anyone who's built this kit - is the seam on the cylinders visible once assembled? If it isn't, I won't worry about it but if it is then I need to clean it up more.
