    Thank you guys, I am not that unhappy considering it was a 24hr build

    @Skip: yes, It is the Revell reissue of the old Heller kit. Has a lot better decals (I think cartograf) and it is a nice little kit.

    Over here, we have coverage from Eurosport. But yeah, there is barely any streams to be found on the internet.

    Last update for the day, I am going to take a quick nap.
    All the parts have been sanded and airbrushed in color, so all major prepping work is done, tomorrow will be a construction day.

    Curtis, I watch it in the attic on the tablet, watch it on the second floor on the computer and watch it downstairs on the tv, trust me, don't wanna miss it ;-)

    All colored plastic parts are painted now, so it can dry overnight

    Le Mans 2015, 24hr build (Bentley Blower and Renault 5 LeCar)
    I am sorry, but I am not going to bore you with a lot of text. Why? Simple, I joined a community build of the Dutch IPMS, in which we build a car (or more) during the 24hrs of Le Mans, the catch is to build a Endurance racer, that actually competed in a 24hrs build.
    I joined with the Bentley Blower (given by Revell) and a Renault 5 Le Car, that competed in the 24hrs of LeMons.

    Here are some pics:

    Sorry for the late reply, been a bit busy sorry 'bout that.

    The Fiero kit is a good point, I'll try to find something on a short notice, since the Le Mans weekend is within 2 weeks. If not, I'll just build without the engine, so be it.

    @Casey; unfortunately not over here, they are at least 15 dollars. Bit much for just parting out the engine.

    @Ken, If the Taurus has FWD, it might be a option too.

    It is not all very exotic, just a simple V6 engine will do, mounted sideways behind the front seats.
