My problem is. Other than lettering all these cars look alike.
Are they all using the same chassis and bodywork?

 

Nope each team must construct their own unique chassis.  They spends millions of dollars in doing so.  Big team budgets are around 200-300 million dollars per year.  Toro Rosso is Red Bull's development team and as such would be consider a mid-level team.  Their budget would be around half of Red Bulls budget.

Good work JC, Everything but the obvious plastic parts looks like a real engine, those brass pieces add to that as well. What did you paint the block with JC?

 

Edit: It's not too trivial :)

 

Thanks Gene.  Nothing has been painted yet the engine in the kit is molded in gray plastic.

If my updates are too trivial please let me know. I'm sure it looks like very little has been accomplished sometimes but when you're making most of the parts the progress feels more significant.

Fabricated carburetor linkage.  The linkage attaches the cylinder head like on the 1:1.  Therefore I need to wait until everything is permanently installed to complete the rest of the linkage.
