Amazing work!!! Look forward to seeing more as you take this mildly detailed kit to another dimension. Looking forward to the engine bay details, or are your plans to leave it as a curbside?

Jumping into the party a little late here:
First, welcome to the F1M Forums, always a pleasure to have new members join our happy little community here.
Second, Holy Cow :shock: !!!!!! Your craftsmanship is stupendous!! The chassis work is amazing, and such details as the shifter are truly inspiring. I am looking forward to seeing more.
Cheers,
Chris
