  1. Lots of seams to fill Bruce, coming along nicely!
  2. Thank you gentlemen for the kind words. Tim you are correct, it is a lot of stuff to put inside. But I fear there is a lot more to do...
  3. I got the radiator installed. Decided not to use the supplied fittings and lines. I used some RB Motion fittings and some Pro Tech steel braided lines, for realism. I also decided not to paint the shocks. Just look at them, hiding them behind paint just seems wrong. the upper A frames where a pain to line up, but I got them. Thanks for looking Chris
  4. I got a request for some outside photos, so here ya go😁
  5. Just one photo. I have a idea for the display, I just need to figure it out.
  6. To tell the truth.... I have tried Molotow, Alclad, Testors. And I had the worst luck with them for one reason or another. Each product works well for different applications, but for me not on the wings because of the handling need to put on the end plates and decals not to mention mounting them. So I used the stock chrome parts 😁 It might be the easy way but it’s not that bad , considering the frustration I endured
  7. It’s been far too long since I last worked on this! so as it sat in the corner wile I started another project I kept staring at it. So yesterday I put the Porsche to the side for a couple of days and got back at this. Honestly there isn’t much left to do to complete it, mostly motivation. Well I found some. Hope you like. And thank you for looking Chris.
  8. I was able to do a little bit on the Porsche. It has been slow going, but at least it’s still going. Thanks for looking Chris
  9. It’s just fabulous, I am amazed every time I stop over to see your progress! every time I see an update I get wowed! keep it up my friend, it’s just fantastic. Chris
  10. Looks fantastic! The new camera does your build justice. I am digging everything about this car... just don’t get overly critical. Way too easy to overthink or over analyze what you have done. I think your doing a outstanding job!! Chris
  11. Turning out great Bruce! I’m sure you spent hours on the windshield frame. It looks fantastic. Can’t wait to see this in person.
  12. Taking shape my friend! Only a matter of time before she’s complete.
  13. I sprayed the wings on a Tamiya 312T in Molotow. I really like the finish just would like a sealer that will allow me to handle the parts without ruining the finish. I saw this thread during a search. I ordered it off of eBay. e7 website is as vague as the directions for use. I am sure the paint line works great. But I assumed the sealer was not water based. Just trying to safe and not ruin #1 the parts and #2 my airbrush. thank you all for the feedback Chris
  14. So this is a small update. I forget how much you need to be three steps ahead to make sure everything fits as it’s supposed to. I got the tub drilled and painted, the front frame painted, fire extinguisher finished. Peddle assembly constructed and painted. trying to figure out the right color to paint the brake reservoirs, still need to build shocks and get the radiator together. Thanks for looking Chris
