  1. I decided to light it up and bought some micro leds (they certainly are micro) Tried the body on the fit is amazing.
  2. Hi all this seems to be a great kit lots of detail and great molding There's no distributor in this kit so had scratch build one.
  3. A start on the engine, there is so much detail in this kit it is amazing
  4. Hi all this will be my first F1 car it looks an incredible kit and I was led to believe it was a rebox of a Tamiya kit but on following Ron silver911's incredible build of the Tamiya kit I know it's not, I'm pretty sure it's an ex Protar kit, anyway back to the build.
  5. Hi all well its done, I really enjoyed this build of my favourite Porsche.
  6. Hi all nearing completion now, really enjoyed this kit.
  7. Added the hinges to the side windows. Definitely on the last leg now.
  8. Did more work on the 910 made the porsche decals for the side (quite pleased with them) masked and painted the windscreen and built the dashboard. Working on the font for the number 20 (proving quite difficult)
  9. OK some pics of progress so far, I really don't like the tamiya idea of doing the suspension, it's s=€t took ages to do and is very fragile (must be why they give you one extra of each suspension part) I generally like tamiya kits but not a fan of this one for design of assembly luckily I didn't do the suspension in the order tamiya suggest as it would have been even harder to accomplish done in the way the instructions suggest
  10. You wouldn't believe how hard the suspension on this is and don't get me started on the connection of the wheels to the drive shafts. I've started scratching the slide throttle linkage for it, the guys at work hate this system, there is a plate with 3 holes in it the size if the venturi of the flutes that runs on bearings and slides forwards and backwards to enlarge or reduce the air fuel ratio by sliding the hole thus reducing or enlarging the venturi, it's prone to leaks and not a great system. This car had other throttle linkage systems which were better but the one depicted in the kit is this one so (as it's the car I've worked on it's the one I will try to depict)
  11. OK so I've Resprayed the stripes.
  12. I've sanded down the bleed through and Resprayed the white, you can still the blue through it, unsure whether to give it another coat since I'm going to spray the bule again in the same place.
