It's been far too long between updates... So heres one


got the engine mounted to the cockpit, now all of those sub assemblies have a place to be mounted.


(I see I will need to upgrade my camera,...these pics are terrible)

I've been slammed at work all summer, and have only managed an hour at most at the bench per week. 

questions,comments, always welcome

I like the weathering. It gives a level of realism you dont often see. Im thinking of building this or the 312B. Great job.

Love it!  When I was a teen, built Niki Lauda's car, loved the kit, ruined the wheels.  Looking awesome.

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!!


Thank you all for the interest..I am slowly getting back to the bench with this one.

The pandemic has not changed my work schedule one bit, still out there working my butt off.

Stay safe and build something lol

Welp, I thought it was time to pull this one out and finally finish something...

She's up on all fours, just a bit more plumbing to do, exhaust hold down springs, wire the instrument cluster, and on and on..


I wet sanded (1000g) the body shell and shot it with 3 coats of Duplicolor #CBVW2037 Tornado Red..I'll wait a couple of days and repeat the process.


Glad to be back at the bench
