Looks very clean Paul. On my screen it looks pink, is that just a lighting issue?

Thanks for looking in guys.

Mitch....I'm taking the pics with my smartphone and I also think it's the lights.  They aren't daylite compensated.   The ones I use with my photo booth at home are daylite bulbs.

I got quite a bit done last night.  The engine is plumbed and wired.



The engine and trans were mated together.



Monoque is assembled.





Rear suspension installed



I used the extra kit decals to fill in the gaps in the front wing

Thanks Buck. The suspension is a little thinner than Tamiya F1 cars, so it's a little fragile. I've got my fingers crossed hoping I don't run into the same problem as Al.

I brought my camera to the workshop this time.  It turns out the color deviation is caused by the camera in my phone.  Anyways, I got the engine and trans mated to the monoque.





I also started adding the various little bits to the assembly.  On the home stretch...........

And it's done.  I'll take more pics tomorrow and put them in the completed section.
