I will probably regret it but i bought another resin kit. I don't like to work with that material.

I decided to move the front wheel suspension forward 2 mm as I think that the distance between the nose and the wheel are to long.

I have no idea of what this will do to the look of the car behind the wheel. With some luck it will be OK or I might need to extend the side pods a bit forward.
I haven't dared too look at the wheels. I know that S27 has a habit of messing them up.

Look at it this way: you'll get more familiar with it! :lol: you won't regret; and if it's the only way to get it...

Hi Orso,

nice to see one of these being build.
And don't worry about the resin. I am with James. Each resin kit you do will give you more confidence in doing this type of kits. Just make sure you won't breathe in the resin dust!

You haven't told us, which version you are building.
I am sure it will be a Peterson car, but which one?
The Monza winner or a version in Swedish colours?

I have no problem working with resin but I feel no joy with those models. two part epoxy is messy and slow.
Yes it will be a Peterson car. The kit I got is the Monaco GP car. Perhaps i should have bought the Italian GP kit as that was the only victory for Ronnie 1976 but I find that colour scheme boring. I prefer the blue yellow one.

Working slowly on this. Some parts on the nose needed to be filled.

Looking at pictures with the March and Tyrrell on the same picture I think that the March were glose to the blue on the Tyrrel so I used the same Tamiya blue that I used on the 008 and 009 but I'm not happy with it so I will repaint it.
