First Progress on chassis is done, primered and painted semi gloss black. Carbon fiber is applied to the in and outside, painted with smoke partly, tobacco logos and the car plate inside cockpit is done, ready for some flat clear.

Now on to the engine which is painted, some detail painting is done and etched bolt heads are on. The gear box became a light wash with gun metal pigments to achive a different look.
Prepairing some smaller parts for engine now, long way to go!

Thx for watching, more to come.

It may still be some way to go, but you're progressing quickly! Good work!

Thank you Joachim, appriciate it! :)
Yes, still having a lot of time actually as i`m recovering, so i have a lot of time to do some modeling. I hope to keep up that pace to finish this one till end of year, but i desperately need to start the paint job as it is realy time consuming. Parts need to stay for a few weeks before polishing, but i need the sideplates for the cockpit to move on and install front suspension parts, this makes me a bit nervous cause i need to prepare the front and rear wing first, not realy started with them actually, only filled sinking marks and cut of the side plates, have to hurry up with this!

I could not resist to do a dry set up after i applied the rivets and some etched parts to the monocoque this morning, have to motivate myself a bit cause today is another sanding and prepairing day to set up the wings. :)

Hope to finish the dashboard soon, some additional wiring has to be done from the inside but i need the dashboard to do so.

Thanks for watching!
