Sauber Mercedes C9

So I finally got around to taking some pics of a couple more of my builds. This is a Tamiya 1/24 kit + Studio 27 photo etch. It went together pretty well apart from the engine cover which still wont quite sit flush and I found the photo etch a little disappointing. I painted it in Mercedes Brilliant Silver and covered that with acrylic clear, both out of a can from a national auto parts chain. It was given a light flatting with 4000 grit and polished up. I had big plans for plumbing and wiring the motor but I bottled it at the last minute. This is the second kit I completed so its all still a bit of a learning curve and I'm reasonably happy with it.

Any comments, criticisms or advice gratefully received.

Nice, clean work. I'd say you're far enough around the (learning) curve to start accelerating.

I don't see much to criticize here. You did a beautiful job as far as I can see.

Your painting of the door opening / panel line is a detail that makes a huge difference. I'm always conflicted on when a panel line should be painted, but it's perfect here.
