  1. Ray ... Thank You.... I got to thinking today that I may try using the Molotow 1 mm on the seats but of course I will do a test run first on something similar.
  2. Thank you Art ! I still need to detail the front of the engine, pulleys, alternator , and drive belt which came as one piece.
  3. Was able to get in some bench time in these last couple of evenings which all I basically got done was some painting and detail painting on the engine parts and trans and transaxle.One thing that will be a big challenge will be getting the chrome detail painted in the seats.
  4. Over all everything was beautifully done,
  5. Ray .... Yes the kit is engineered very well and so far there is hardly any clean up needed from mold lines.
  6. Rich thank you for taking the time and to answer my questions on this kit I do appreciate it.
  7. Rich I was wondering if you installed the two rear scoops on the rear hatch first before you installed the glass or if you installed the glass first then the scoops ? and if you installed scoops first then glass did you have any issues with the install of the glass ?
  8. Thank you Rich on the heads up on drilling out the distributor which I had already drilled out a few days ago and yes I have been looking at your build of the GT40 and you have done a beautiful job on this build.
  9. Started this build about a week ago which I do build fairly slow. I will be attempting to build this as accurate as possible but it will have my twist on it and not be exact but close. I will be adding spark plug wires and possibly coolant lines, fuel lines and possibly brake lines. I have already modified the rear hatch by opening up the four air intake scoops which was challenging but well worth the effort. I have started assembly of the engine and trans axle assembly which they still need paint detailing and I also have started painting the wheels but they still will need to be detailed.
  10. She looks awesome ! Only thing that is disappointing about these rereleased Mpc kits is the lack of detail of the drive train.
  11. Started this build about a week ago which I do build fairly slow. I will be attempting to build this as accurate as possible but will not be exact and I will also attempt to add spark plug wires and maybe a few coolant lines and possibly fuel lines and brake lines. So here are a few progress pics plus I have already opened up the four air intake scoops on the rear hatch which was challenging but well worth the effort. Still need to finish the paint on the intake and valve covers and I also will need to finish the detail paint work on the engine and trans axle assembly. Just noticed that I have posted this in the wrong forum hopefully the moderators will move this to the correct WIP forum.
  12. Well Done ! One of these days I would like to attempt to build a F1
  13. Looks awesome ! I have a question since I have started building this kit which is that I noticed that you had installed the two rear scoops on the rear engine hatch which in the instructions it has them being installed after the glass is installed so my question is did you have any issues installing the glass with the scoops already installed ?
  14. Thank you for the info on the paint. I received this kit for Christmas & I started going threw the paint colors in the instruction manual and there was no color listed for the wheels that I could see.
