Slowly making progress. Mounted the windshield with smoked windows. To get the proper stance, I had modify the suspension, which again eliminated more parts.

Hi Jonathan

Think I'm ready to join in now if I may.  My first choice was the Simil R Pescarolo but that can wait after seeing Juan's build :wacko: , so I'm going with this instead:

I thought someone else had chosen this too, but can't see it being built so I'll give it a go.  I don't have any alternative decals so this will be a box stock build, although I intend to use the new Tamiya metallic orange that featured on my Cannonball Run Mustang   ^_^

 

Off to the workbench

I'll be joining in on this CBP.  Two other forums I frequent are doing a 911 build in honor of the 50th anniversary of the 911.   So what I'm doing already fits in with this CBP.   A pic of the box art and contents.

I decided to do a chassis stand/jig for possible display purposes.

I assembled all of the chassis pieces together and painted them grey. It's not the color the instructions call out, but I like the way details in the interior stand out with that color. The instructions called for white.

I too have made some progress this last two weeks.  I had to finish a trailer combo for my club's theme night, but got some colour on the Maclaren and finished the chassis - good to see it up on wheels :) but the paint still needs polishing.

The trailer combo featured a race car but didn't qualify for this CBP:

From the pic, that paint is already shiny.  If you polish it, it will be blinding !!

 

I'm going to try p/e belts for the first time on this kit.

I got the first couple of steps done.

Been working on the front suspension.   Since the sponsor decals say it has Bilstein shocks, and the Bilsteins I had back in the day were yellow, I took the liberty of painting the shocks yellow.  I added the Tamiya jar to get a sense of the size.

I second that, this should be a good comm. build. Shades of the general race car build, but nice. I also had a breakthrough with my Shelby race conversion so I should be getting some good stuff going on that soon.

Even though it doesn't have much chassis nor interior detail, I figured I'd go ahead and post some RX-7 pics.  The decals were too big for spoiler and ended up cracking.

Thanks Oscar and Lawrence.

 

Along with painting all of the front suspension pieces, the rear stuff was done at the same time.  So it got assembled.
