This has gone together really,really well. I was expecting flash, & fit issues as its a rerelease. No such issues.

I've added front brake hoses & BMF'd the calipers, Detail Master disributor, belts from masking tape.
The interior got pedals & a fire wall added.  Tamiya Red & White for the paint.

Nice one Chris.

The Tobias chassis can be a tad tricky to assemble but you have done a great job.

It went together very easily, Al. Still some roll cage components to fit, they go in after the interior & engine.

Buck, the dizzy is a Detail Master aluminium one. Machined aluminium body & PE top plate giving you 4, 6 or 8 cylinders.
Comes with loom holders & a base clamp to. Ditto wire & plug boots.

Cheers,

Chris

Update.Belts from tape & with some surplus PE bits. Added a radiator overflow, its the kit magneto
recycled. Engine is wired & I added a starter cable. Extractors ( headers) are part box. And exit right in the middle of the nerf bar support! It's mostly hidden, but I might just snip the support & add tips to the extractors.

Looks good Chris. All the colors you are working with give nice contrast to the other.

It's more enjoyable when the kit works with you and you're working the kit really nicely.
