    Yep, it is a simple little build and goes together nicely.

    I am keeping my eye on things...bit pricey at the moment for the Carerra
    Already have the the Pochers I want ....some partially made others not yet started 
    Alfa Romeosx2, Bugatti, F40, Testarossa
    The Lambos and the Ducati are tempting. But I have a lifetime of kits to build at the moment

    Thanks, not the easy route, but a fun exercise
    Have been working on the tie rod. Copied the plastic tubing and replaced with telescoping brass. I am being lazy and using CA glue instead of silver soldering which I just don't feel like doing for it.
    Just need to link the rod to either side with a pivot, hmmm gotta think on that a bit

    Wow, what an offer. You are a god send
    Will do a bit of inventory and see if I have anything I cannot salvage or modify
    I think I will go with the rear deck and wing  I have cast, just want to see how that resin takes paint
    Thank you again

    Working on the underbelly...front and rear suspension. 
    I added brass pins to the front wheel assembly and some aluminum inserts to the front wheel arms for strength and a positive seat. This lets the wheels steer, just have to devise a tie rod between the wheels now.
    Rear has new brass shocks, not much else.
    Both will get disk brakes and rotors of some sort

    Lovely build indeed, you are a master of the Porsche build
     
    Wrt the clear, it is one of the more difficult areas IMHO and have been studying it.
    So here are my notes:
    *If you go too light  a coat and especially if spraying too far away, your clear will atomize and dry before it hits body and leave a rough finish. A second heavier coat can fill that in, like it would a flat paint layer
    *If you flood the body too much, you will fill all your panel lines and details, leaving a gloppy mess of runs and buildups in corners...just like paint would
    *It needs to be a positive wet layer, not too thick and not too thin. Different clears will behave differently 
    *If you do a second coat of clear, one should sand with wet fine paper so the second coat has bite.....I didn't do that on my last 928 project and the clear had runs and splotches so the first layer looked better on it's own. Live and learn.
    I am far from perfect at it and still a work in progress...just thought I would show some research notes
