this will be a slow build, I don't get much time any more. I started this a month or two ago, and a week or so ago, I came across a member selling the SMS Super Detail set and I jumped on it. I am using the SMS Super Detail turned parts, SMS PE set and the Hobby Design McLaren F1 GTR brake set, which uses the same brakes and hubs as the 911 GT1. The Hobby Design brakes are a lot bigger than the kit brakes, but still kit inside the wheel just fine. I don't know why HD only includes enough PE brake faces to do 2 rotors, so I decided to not use them and paint the rotors a carbon color. PE Brembo faces nice crisp detail I nipped off the molded in bleeder detail Made the crossover tube Added the .5mm brass nuts from Scale Hardware Not too difficult to make 1, but making 4 look the same is time consuming Mockup with the PE face that I didn't end up using I decided to go one step further and add RB Motion bleeders. Tiny Painted the calipers Brembo Gold from Gravity Colors, then diluted some Tamiya red acrylic to paint the Brembo letters Painted the hubs Alclad II Pale Gold. Now comes the fun part, adding all the PE bold heads Before & After A million years later Rotors were painted with Model Master Metalizer (I forget color) then gently rubbed with a dense cotton swab for contrast Before & after. Not a huge difference, but enough Looks great when done More to come
