Very nice work ! One suggestion - could you make those air intakes as separate parts and open up cover to place them into ?
I have had to cut those molded in covers from the body of my kit to be able to replace them with PE parts from S27 set.
If you had those open already, it would save quite a bit of work for other builders. And it would also allow to add filter
material, as was used in real car under them.

This comment made me realize that I am missing a photo of that step. Here it is

Hi,

Sorry to be late....I did not forget you !

Yes, of course it is possible
To make more precise result, the hole has been opened and filled with ST27 p-e.
But.... I don't do this by myself.
It is done by someone that I pay for scan, modify, add my wishes and print ....
I could ask him the cost of that...
Let me know your wish

Bye

Great project, coming together very nicely. I always loved the Alfa Romeo flat-12 in this car, very cool. Looking forward to seeing your masterpiece.
Cheers,
Chris

(Missed update from March)

I've decided to add simulated rivets for this model, using Archer fine transfers. This is first time for me.
Watched video tutorial at decals maker's site and followed process almost exactly. Only deviation was use
of Miro-Set to help decals settle better. Without Micro-Set it was difficult to move and position decals and
they did not want to stick well. Over all result is satisfactory, even if it may not be 100% accurate. Got as
close as my patience allowed me. There are many more rivets on real car. But I was not willing to spend
extra time on those less visible. It's a time consuming process and I'm not even sure rivets will show that
well on finished model. We'll see.

While focus was on BT52 build, I've continued to work on BT46 in parallel. After decals with simulated
rivets were applied, I've primed over them and then shot Zero Alfa red onto body parts and wings' elements.
Next I've done detail painting on engine and suspension items. And finally this week I've started assembly
steps. Engine is coming together first. Put extra effort into wiring it up. Ignition wires and fuel lines could
be seen on photos. I still need to come up with solution for ignition plugs/booths, which are missing from
the kit. I also plan to put extra effort into plumbing. Most of the hoses will be added latter, but accepting
holes have been drilled ahead of time.

I liked the rivets you used on your project. The engine is coming along very nice too.
