After some vacations and a le mans fast build, it's time to return, to our build.

This update is for engine and gearbox parts preparation. Many holes required as always, some test fits and a lot of alignments. Mind than I attached the radiator hose to the engine and not to the firewall, as MFH suggest. This is preferable for better alignment and more steady build but no it is more difficult to insert the engine to the chassis.

Finally, I replace the rear roll bar.

Painting and assembly parts now can be started. So, the next one will be more interesting.

All the best.

Thanks for your comment, my friend...

After the test fittings, time for painting and assembly.

I start with the chassis paint. I use Gaia's light stainless silver with some post shading with Alclad's polished aluminum. Then, the front suspension installed, the anti-roll bar, the steering rack, the liquid boxes, and the necessary wiring. Then, I assemble the brakes and the brake ducts.

Finally, I add some details to the interior like the battery, electronics, and the gear shift. Also, I wipe the wash to give it the final look.

Hope you like.

All the best

Hello guys, I continue to work with the 33.

So, I make the seatbelts and dashboard wiring. Then, I add them to the chassis...

Unfortunately, I had a hand strain during a tennis match. So, don't know when I came back to my modeling activities.

All the best.

The next step, on my 33 is here.

Most of the things, like engine, gearbox, and chassis assembly did before I smash my hand. As you can see I add some wiring in most of the areas.

Hope the photos tell better the story, so here you are:
