Nice job!! Welcome back ! This car was designed by Tony Southgate and was one of the only cars with a short tail. From what I read it created excellant straight away speed with good down force. A well balanced car.
Not much of a WIP anymore. After a year I'm about ready to wrap this up finally!! Just a couple carbon fiber decals, the mirrors, and I was 4 rivets short on the one side. I'm really happy with it, being it my first modern F1 build. This should be in the Under Glass section soon! Jere
that is very nice build., Did you have any problems with the kit or the HD photoetch. I have both in my stash.
Joe, The only thing I can remember having a problem with on the kit, was the back glass needs to be shorten alittle to fit in its spot. I think I even sanded the mounting area towards the back. Just test fit it and you will see what I'm talking about.The HD photo-etch is really nice, but be careful it is easy to bend. It's very thin and soft.
Was it a challenge to get the photoetch buckles where you wanted them on the belts?
Curtis, kinda, I pulled on them with a tweezers to the right length then folded it around the buckle, then stuck a chunk of double sided tape between the belt material. Then just pinched it together. Thanks again for liking my car!! It's really nice to hear. Jere
