This is the start of my next build.


First order of business was to get a coat of white onto the bodywork.  




I also sorted all of the other parts and got them sprayed.

Thanks Bruce

I got more done on the engine and rear suspension.  



Tamiya gives you decals to do the upper element of the rear wing.  But after trying to get them to lay down correctly, I gave up and painted it gloss white instead.

Very good work on the body, paint and decals can make or break a finish! Engine rear suspension isn't up to older Tamiya standards (just my view). Around the time they did the Porsche 956 gtp car molded-on parts instead of separate one and little detailing was left off. Still, it's the body we see most and it looks great! Thanx for updates!

I got the cockpit into the monoque and the front suspension on.

This is where I was this morning. Besides decaling the rear cowl, it's just down to assembly.

Thanks Buck.

I got the wings on.





I put the rear cowl on to get the last couple of decals to line up with the rest of the bodywork.
