Good evening Modelers,

First of all I would like to thank you.
Thank you so much for all the kind words and comments regarding the build of thatRed Roaring Beauty. :oops: :wink:

Few progress
Riveting the bathtub and the bulkhead is now done.
The wooden shifter knob is clear coated and test fitting is mandatory for the engine/cockpit/body subassembly.

Ooh! Monsieur Pascal Panais... What an awesome web you weave, this is complete and utter eye candy...
And not a Flight deck switchboard in sight... Somehow it looks better here than FB... :D :mrgreen: :D :wink:

Hi,

It’s been quite a long time since my last post...Sorry.
Aircraft can’t wait!!

Still progressing on the Chris Amon Ferrari.
The fitting holes and the front Ferrari logo area are masked.
I had a little « spot » on the Red, so I sanded it and made a touch up.
The dampers looked to simple for my taste.
I used modified F1 Specialties brass electronic connectors and chemically burnished them, then put a center adjustment screw and finally install the knob on the damper.
A Koni decal add a nice looking detail.
Aaaaannd, there is a new kid in town!
0.3 flat pattern: tested today and happy with the result.

voilà.
More soon.

Wow Pascal,

This is some awe inspiring work. It's almost enough to drive me to selling the 1/20 stashed and try and get my hands on these 1/12 kits!

I love seeing such detailed builds come together :)

Hi,

Thanks so much for all your kind comments Mates! :oops:

A last sanding session on the metal body, then:
- Primer,
- Giallo Modena,
- Rosso Corsa.

Also started to spray primer on the first 200 metal rivets.
400 left to do... before GM&RC.
Few of them will be White.
