Thanks guys!

Corey, I gotta ask, Which Caterham 7? I've done at least six of them... At least 10 if you count Lotus's too.

The one with the 7 theme. The one in your avatar.

I saw a profile of it in Scale Auto few years ago, and was just in awe of the detail.

Exellent build!

Is the pinstripe paint or tape?

Mark, I'm curious about this too, but, unless I missed it, didn't see that it had been answered. You know I'm currently struggling with pinstripes!

I guess I did miss that, sorry...

I cut the side and upper nose stripes from 2mil white vinyl, the rest of the white striping (on the lower edges) is decal.

Thanks guys.

I used Matrix clear, two part automotive urethane.

The project is still moving along, but slowly due to the nature of the kit and where I am at on it.

Put a couple parts on, let them dry... Paint some details, let 'em dry... Put them on, let 'em dry...

There is not much meat on the body around the rear wheel wells and I really had to force them in, even after multiple trimming episodes. Glad the body didn’t break, but then again, this resin is pretty hard. Good thing I thinned out the inner fenders while building the chassis to make more room. Plenty of fiddling to get it to sit on all four wheels too.
