Yes, valve covers are backward in photo. But they are just inserted. Noticed this detail after studying a photograph and could not figure out why mine looked odd.....duh.

That looks great, so far.
Be sure not to glue the intake manifolds (plenums, you know) yet, you'll have an easier meeting with intercoolers later...
You'll see, a nice kit to build. And, yes, for builders :D

Thanks, I was wondering
if I should do just the very thing you suggested.

Engine will not have the red valve covers. This will be the look I am going for.

Yes, that's accurate like this. Red camcovers were used much later in the season, when pull rod front suspension had already been adopted.

Thanks for confirmation. After much research, conclusion is Protar used the early season version as evidenced by front suspension. Another detail I have came across in just one
very dim looking photo....the frame mount arms that the suspension mounts too appeares in the photo to be adonized blue. Studied this hard, at first thought it too be a shadow or reflection, but is not upon magnification of the photo. There is not a lot of
info and or photos for that early chassis.

Hi

The anodized blue suspension plates seems to be a one shot thing during the Brazillian GP.
Did no see any other occasion later during the season. It is a nice colorful detail to add.

Cheers

Steady process of hand fitting the parts. Those areas that look like parting lines have been sanded smooth, but a line remains denoting where it once was. The main parts of the block/trans was molded in the gold color, of which looks very close to the protective coating Ferrari used. However, from photos I have studied, only the transmission appears to be coated, the rest looks like the metal the parts was made from. Of all the areas that had to have sink marks....valve covers. Every one of these I
have seen built, they were left alone and glare out at you. Going to try and fill them, hopefully not destroying and of the details of the cover. Turbo shroud was another area that required much attention to fix mold pin points and sink marks. All in all coming along well, but slow.
