Build this one many years ago.

Added spark plug wires, fuel lines and breather hoses but one could go all out on the dry sump oil system. An easy kit to build I think, because the straight forward decals.

 

Have fun  :)

You're not wasting any time are you?

 

It's only a few months ago I checked this thread and it's finished already. :blink:


In Topic: your work bench

I was lucky to build this hobby room last year after building for decades in the corner of a bedroom. Made this work bench from IKEA kitchen sink shelfs and some coated chip wood. Amazing that no matter how much working space you have it always ends up cluttered up with trumpery.

 

Check out the display cabinet I made from the old fireplace downstairs.

The clear coat applied. I used the same household clear I have used for many years that takes about four days to cure, but leaves a though glass like finish that last for decades. I cut the front engine mounts back about 2mm to bring the nose of the engine down and make the rear of the engine line up properly to the bell housing bulkhead.

The body after applying the decals and before a clear coat. A new sharp blade was used to cut the decals before parting. I touched the engine bay, damaged edges and the parting faces near the red sections up with some red paint before clear coating. The inside was painted aluminum to stop light bleeding through. The decals are of a great quality and were cut up in some places to avoid any lettering ending up on the body seam. Some long decals were also cut in two pieces to help applying them straight.
