now after hours of sanding,polishing,metal priming,a little welding here an there., drilling and make some adjustments :wub:

Now looks better ,looks like a real aluminum hand formed fuel tank,i just need to complete the oil tank in the same way that i do with the fuel tank and is done!,the oil tank goes on the rear part of the fuel tank in those tinny pins.,

the tank was clear coated with tamiya semi gloss clear ts-79 ,this clear gives a look of aluminum to white metal ;)

Must say that this is truly a magnificent build and superb work in detailing of a quite difficult and expensive model...as all HIRO kits seems to be!!, as very well said by fellow forum members, the result shown here is the result of a LOT of work and a master touch by the builder.

Hi guys!!

here some pics .,

i assembled the hood hook pins,these hood pins are made from 5 springs(comes with the kit) and the photoetched hooks

the hood needs five ,so i glued the parts with 5 minute epoxy ,since they are functional they need a strong glue to avoid loose the parts when remove the hood. see...
