I know what ya mean Steve ... I cover up my starts in black cloth and go on to something else ... as dementia sets in so goes the many surprises when I uncover ‘em ... it’s like Christmas morning ...

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!!

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.

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

Cheers
