    I agree with the post above. What an amazing piece of model art, Tim! It's been a great journey to follow along with and I look forward to the home stretch!

    Tim,
    Definitely never thought you were a knucklehead! But no apology necessary and I am grateful you mentioned it. I now see it on every photo and I think it would be a neat detail to add.

    I saw that you went there on the post on your F5000 thread and have to admit, I was jealous! That must have been awesome. Thanks for looking, Curt!

    Tom, Seth, thanks for looking, guys!

    Whoa, Tim! Is that a subtle hint? Because, honestly, I didn't notice the naca ducts. But now that you pointed them out, they stick out like a sore thumb! I will absolutely be adding them! It just shows what a good eye for detail you have.

    Thanks, JC! You should have bid on it. You could do it justice for sure. Kevin K. still has some if you really want one.

    Welsome, Nate! Hope you can get involved in some of the So Cal shows.

    Indeed it was. The same one John Teresi replicated.

    This is going to be cool, JC!

    And finally, starting some assembly!

    I stole the U-joints for the half shafts from a Corvette rear end.
    I polished up the white metal oil tank that came with the kit and dipped it in Future to try to keep it from tarnishing over time. I also put some bungs in it so I can add oil lines later.

    I'm still making progress on this one, a little at a time. Actually, I have a lot of time in the body prep, but not a lot to show there yet. But here are some random photos of some work. Drilled out some openings for seat belts.
    I also drilled a hole on the body in an inconspicuous place and inserted a wooden dowel to hold it for painting.
    The only calipers I had that might work for the rear are not quite the right shape, so I reshaped them a little. This one is still a little rough in this shot.

    Very cool, Mark! That's my kind of subject. It's amazing what can be done with a Snap Kit in the right hands.

    Great, Joe! Glad to see you plan to use some of Charlie's good stuff on this one. You know where you can get more! Sounds like you've got some surgery ahead on this one...

    Tim,
    Thanks so much for the call out. I'm getting a little done on the F5000 in the Workbench section. I'm starting to get some color on it, which is why I wanted to do it in the first place. I thought I would get to that point a lot sooner, though! Once it's done, back to the midget...
    And... this work is continuing to amaze. What is lost in the pics is just how small this really is. I hope to see this build in person some day, then it will really hit home how incredible this build is. Plus I realyl appreciate the lessons we all can get from this WIP.
