Go Harv! 

The first time I saw that box art, I thought the open engine hatches looked like big bunny ears.

Thanks to Ryan, there are very obvious omissions to this kit. One of the biggest is ignition wires tube. This is where I an rite now. Still needs to be trimmed some and a hole drilled for the front 2 Leeds. Let me know what you think.....harv

Looks good there Harv. The extras you're adding make quite the improvement.

Depends on what your tank should look like. There are lots of 'fresh' spills on the Aluminum part (sharp contours), but no deposit grime on the whole engine. Looks to me like a relatively new engine with not so careful maintenance.

Wow Harv.......1/16 heavy metal dude........talking about something totally different then airplane modelling.:thumbsup2:

Love your progress my friend, i'm sitting at the front row to watch and learn.:popcorn:

In the Brussels Army and aviation museum stands a original Renault FT with his ( i think) original color scheme. 

I don't have much photo's of it, only three, but i will post them here. Maybe you can use them as reference.

I think it looks top drawer, buddy............ I really like what's going down here...... nice tone down on the aluminum crankcase............it shows 'depth' to my four eyes, keep going.... she will be a stunner...
