Ever since finishing the last MFH kit, I had so much fun that I knew I would be doing another soon.  So I finally decided on starting this kit.  As usual, this will be a long build, since I tend to jump around between models as the mood strikes me.  Any comments and/or suggestions are welcome.





To start out, I got various pieces out and started to prep them by drilling the locator holes and cleaning up any seams and ridges.  For some reason, MFH decided to do the body in white metal.  This is going to be a heavy model when done.



The engine block and transmission are in resin.



Engine bay pieces mocked-up and pinned together.








The white metal parts were CA'ed to the respective blocks in preparation for paint




Front suspension mock-up






Rear suspension mock-up

A long overdue update !!!

With the excitement of the 917 and not being able to work on it except when we meet for the buddy build, I dug this back out and did some more on it.

Yes, Mr H, it was expensive.  About $600 US.  But when you consider the cost of a 1/12th Tamiya kit, plus a set of turned wheels and a detail set, the cost is not that much different.  And this is a subject that no one else will ever do.

In the instructions, there is no mention of how to mount the radiator.  But the usual MFH dimples are there, so I drilled out the pieces and inserted some .5 mm wire.  




Radiatore was CA'd together and trial fit.




The metal hoses going to the radiator are too long.  I'll have to modify them and cut them shorter

Thanks guys

I got the engine anf trans painted.  Now I need to do some washes on them.



Got the rear cage CA's together and jigged up the rear.




Tried the trans there to make sure stuff lines up. These MFH kits require a lot of test fitting.




THe cam covers were CA's and the throttle shaft installed.

It is pretty incredible! A very rare kit built with great care. Odd that a low volume company whose kits are "pricey" should have ANY fitment issues. You are soldiering on with this model, hats off to you!

Thanks guys!

Last night my model club had a build nite.  I worked on this a bit more.  One of the members brought his pin polisher to the meeting and we put the parts that needed to be polished into it.
