Got the bonnet done today .... 3 plus hours to build , sure made it hard for myself with all those angles.... oh well love a good challenge

Was able to get some more done on this model in the weekend due to the bad weather outside there was NO racing at my local track...
Made up a set of headers from solder wire (1st go at this) also decided that I`m going to put a driver in this time , So I used the figure from the sprintcar kit and re-shape him to fit. :lol:

Well have been slowly working away on this model,But the other day I was inform by a driver/chassis builder that he thinks that my rear axle is too far back.

 

So I have sent most of the weekend re-working the rear axle and mounting points... Ended up moving it about 3mm..

And even though I hate to admit it , he was right it does better now..
