      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. 

Black Mefistofele 1/12 wip

Hi

I´m trying to do the black version of the Mefistofele. Some modifications must be made, a higher rear bodywork, no airvent holes on the right side of the hood, two seats.

There are very few pictures of the black car  so a little "artistic freedom" must be used :-)

Thomas, you are doing such a great job on this model it is almost like Harry's spirit is projecting through you.  Your modeling reminds me of what Harry did. :)

Hi

More work on the engine, replaced the valve springs with steel thread, far from perfect but  it will do. Installed a bunch of sparkplugs and the ignition cables. The fuel lines are also replaced with a little  thinner one.

Brass color is Alclad polished brass, works fine.
