I guess it's time for this years update on this build...LOL.  I devoted a couple of build nites to it and got quite a bit further.   The monocoque is past step number 1.




I decanted a can of Tamiya British Racing Green and was able to air-brush the front and rear bulkheads were they needed to be green.



I got a bit of the rear suspension together.



Last night, I spent the time getting the front suspension on and the radiators fitted.






And a teaser with the nose on.

Who's Paul?



Seriously, I have to give credit to my modeling buddy, Derek, for helping me find my modeling groove again.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.  


I spent another build nite working on the BRM.

I got the rear suspension pieces ready to assemble and did the deed.




Another mock-up for inspiration.



Front suspension is done.

Thanks guys.  I'm surprising myself with how much I'm enjoying this build.

Tonite I finally got the nerve to build the injection pumps.  This stuff is tiny.



The spark plug leads had to be put in before the throttle plates were installed.





One side done.....time to rest my eyes.

Now that's what I call an engine BLOCK.

That is one sharp cube of power Paul.

Nice work with the tiny bits and pieces.
