Great start Mark. As you say the gloss black will be hard but you've got a great shine looking at that picture with the polishing compound tube. :thumbsup2:

Thanks but that's only a small part wait for the body

The prep work is a long progress it's resin so first sanding primer and more sanding

Very nice Mark, the MFH is a bit rich for me at present but always coveted the Tamiya race cars........any advise on those?......

the most off the tamiya cars are already older kits

I have the mclaren mp4/6 and the williams FW14 in the stasch

those are nice kits and you have room to put extra details in the only problem will be that the mp4/6 is going for crazy prices

the Fw14 can be found at normal prices,also the porsches are nice kits but its the rebox off the old kits with some pe in the box

 

I know the mfh kits are damn nice just like the price

the are a lot off fun to build but the are long term projects to keep you focus

 

i hope this helps

and iff you have the money the tamiya enzo ferrari en porsche carrera gt 1/12 damn nice

Mark got it pretty much spot on. Their most recent F1 cars are from the early to mid '90s. The most recent kit in 1/12 is the Carrera GT. It's a significant step up from the older 934 and 935 which both were reissued last year. They're still nice kits and have better fit/detail than the Stratos I'm working on.  

The Caterham Super 7 was also recently reissued. That kit builds almost like the actual car with aluminum body panels. 

I'm not sure on the UK pricing but the 934/935 kits can be had here in Canada for around 200 Loonies (Canadian dollars) so good value for what you get in my opinion. The GT is usually double that or more. Same with the Caterham. 

If you don't mind 1/20, there are far more recent kits available along with AM detail sets if you want to go crazy in that regard.
