Chris, those MFH kits are very expensive, so do you keep your models of sell them on to collectors to fund your next project?

This model is coming on remarkably well I have to say. Have been following this thread with interest.

Yes they are expensive, but also addicting! I have not sold one to anyone. I have never thought I could, because I admire others who, to me have more talent than I think I do.

As far as funding, don’t think of the price. I have spent more on a Tamiya kit, than I have spent on a MFH kit, to get the details.

I do appreciate your kind words and hopefully my next update will be coming soon. Spring has sprung and house chores are piling up 😉

Thanks for your reply Chris. Yes, I would imagine the MFH kits would be addictive.

I have seen some beautiful examples of well built MFH models at shows over here in the UK.

Am looking forward to the 1/12th scale Italeri Bugatti T35 being released as it will be more affordable for me than the MFH one much as I would love to build the MFH kit.

Those wheels look exceptional.  How were they to assemble  ?

Thank you! It took me a couple tries and about 10 hours on the first one. Once I got into the right groove it took about 3 hours per wheel.

Those seats look INCREDIBLE!  Stunning!

So, that paint set some with the base terracotta color, a darker shade and what looks like a blue from their website?  Is the blue translucent, or is that an error on their site?  

Great work - really impressive!

I think the blue is an error. I used their dark primer.

Thank you, I do like it 😁

Hi,

Beautiful!

Great job on the seat with the GC set, I really like the colors, shades and grades of brown.

Just checked in to this, your detail work and weathering is gorgeous!  What an amazing model, fantastic work.  Those seats look just like leather!

This is such a lovely build to see! Wonderful results worth envying!

Thank you! I have had some great support and I have learned some different techniques that I will be using on some future builds
