Just beautiful work going on here Chris !!!!   I have some MFH kits and I am so impressed with your ability to take those bags of white metal bits and make such a great looking model. Truly inspiring.

I have been a little busy... I completed the oil coolers, air jacks and wheels and tires.

the wheels are about 200 individual pieces 😲😲😲

One more item, then the chassis is complete

This is incredible. I watched some vids about their factory and how they make these models..but watching one being built! These make Pocher models look..well not as good. This to me is the epitome of model making short of scratch building an entire one. Great work!

Thank you! It will challenge your patience at times, yet very satisfying when it comes together

Thanks Bruce... Mark told me I suck!!

LOL!!!! There is a story about that. A very good friend of Mark and I , his name is Steve, said to me, “ I suck” when I won some awards at a IPMS contest. But it was in fun as Steve is a great builder. So our club has adopted the saying “ you suck” if your kicking everyone’s rear end.

Its a shame you have to cover all that up with a body!

Yes it is, the doors open and shut and the rear deck lid comes off as well as the hood

Incredible build! Those MFH kits have had my head spinning for some time. Just have to decide if the tail chewing will be worth it. I think it might be. 

Go for it! I jumped in with both feet…

With the body, without the body.....I don't care..........I love the whole build Chris.  The details of the chassis engine in your most recent pics are outstanding.  With the body in primer you can envision the whole thing now and it's fantastic!   kudos!  tim
