Finished both rear and front suspensions this weekend. I think RB6 brakes looks good on this car. Also installed RB6 radiators and assembled
front wing. As soon as I will be able to force myself to make seat belts (hate it), I should be able to mate body and floor and install rear wing.
After that only small accessories will be left. Need to wrap it before end of September.

Nice!

Made seat belts couple of days ago and was immediately unblocked for further assemblies. By now it is pretty much done. Missing only
top camera housing and antenna. It was fast (by my standards) OOB build. Went together well and easy. I liked some solutions Ebbro put
in it. Some others I did not like. Overall it is a nice kit, which could be built into great model, imho.

Top result Sergey, bet it feels good to finish a Mclaren relatively painlessly. Looks superb.

OCTOBER 23, 2016 - Worked on suspension.

Returned to MP4/6 Friday night. Assembled most of the rear and front suspensions. Uprights are only there temporary to keep arms aligned.
Will have to assemble and attache brakes first, before I could put uprights in place permanently. At the rear body panels have to be installed
as well, prior to final assembly. Still some progress to be happy about. Nothing is attached to the floor at the moment. Just a mock up to see
how it all fits.
