      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I found your valve covers.  They are included in the Revellogram 427 Cobra.  They are 1/24 scale so you many want to use the engine block from the kit as well.  This one is busted up but it will show you what they look like.

    I agree I think the slicks are a bit too large.  You did a good job blending in the roof.

    Renault has launched its new car -- the R.S.17 -- at an event in London.
    After finishing ninth in last year's constructors' championship, president of Renault Sport Racing Jerome Stoll said the team is targeting fifth place in 2017 with its new car before making further steps up the grid in the following seasons. Nico Hulkenberg joins Jolyon Palmer in the team's new driver line-up.
    RenaultThe car features the distinctive wings and wider track mandated under this year's new regulations and is fitted with Pirelli's new wider tyres. It also features the thumb-like appendage on the nose to meet regulations regarding the height of the tip.
    The R.S.17 was designed under technical director Bob Bell and is the first to be developed from the ground up under his leadership since Renault retook control of the team last winter.
    The livery features Renault's corporate yellow, but also a large proportion of black bodywork towards the rear.
    RenaultThe team's managing director Cyril Abiteboul said: "For 2017 we are perfectly placed to take the step forward we all desire. The R.S.17 is the result of many long working hours spent over our two integrated locations and the result is a car we can be proud of. We have a strong line-up of personnel at all levels of the team and we're proud to see Nico and Sergey [Sirotkin, reserve driver] join Jolyon in 2017.
    "We are joined by a strong group of partners with BP, Castrol, MAPFRE and SMP Racing representing the best pre-season sponsorship acquisition campaign in the paddock. We are the fastest growing F1 team and we now need to prove our performance on track. Our objective is to score points at every round."
    The R.S.17 is the third F1 car to break cover this year after Sauber and Williams released images of their cars.

    Historic Racing Miniatures offer the Dunlop Racing wheels - not exactly right but close.

    I renamed the thread so we can put all the new season's cars in one place.

    Send me a PM with what you are looking for Jim and I'll see what I can do.

    I like to lower, wider look.  This more like what an F1 car should look like.

    Thank Brizio.  I don't see this getting resin cast.
    Eric - you are a wealth of Model T information.  I would love the see any photos you are willing to share.  I would like to go with something other than black or green if I can.  As it sits what period would my engine resonably represent?
