Hi all well its that time of year again, as little aside from the model got the decs up today


I decided the technique I used on the dent in the tank of the Honda I would use it here aswell








seems like sacralige, the chrome on the radiator grill is so exquisite.

should anyone think this is nearing completion here is a shot of the spures left(I've removed the optional parts) so these all still need to be attatched.

Hi all well this is going to be left for a while to let me cool off (I came sooooo close to throwing it against the wall) went to fit the wings and complete radiator as you saw I did in the last update and with those in place tried a fit of the bonnet (no chance 6 mill gap at the front, or back depending on where you want the gap) after several minuets of scratching my head I figured out what the problem was there was a gap all around the top of the firewall of about 2 mill, lift the front of the car a bit gap disappears and the bonnet fits perfect (I think the floor pan is bent) (I know the back part is but thought I would sort that when I finally glued it on) so lifted the front of the car glued the firewall to the body let it dry, released the body and the bottom of the firewall came away from where that was glued (too much stress I guess ) after a very fidely application of glue to that area, mahoosive amounts of taping to hold it there, let that dry undo the tape all fits perfect, just start applauding myself for sorting it and ping gap at the top again. How I stopped myself I don't know, but I didn't throw it, I don't want to come that close again so having a break for a little while.

I think you will work it out. Sounds like a bent frame to me. You might try taping everything into place and then heating the parts with a hair dryer. Might soften them up and reshape them to fit.

Hi all well I've figured it out, On the ladder frames which you slide the subframe on the sub frame was about a mill away from end of the ladders which through everything else out unfortunately that part was stuck with a capitol S but with a lot of jiggeling I've moved it the mill required so now back to work, I've added the inner roof lining and weathered it.





for some reason the weathering is not showing up in the pics very well, trust me it looks very grubby.

Frustrating?  Yes, but we love seeing this one-of-a-kind build!  What are the optional parts?  Seems like everything possible is already there.
