Clay, those u-joints are funtional.  There is another set in the steering, but the angles are tighter, so they probably won't operate as smoothly.   BTW, like most Tamiya 1/12 cars, the suspension works also.

Buck, the kit parts were almost identical to the pic Al posted, but where the plastic got thicker (ribs, seams) the coloration got wacky and the look wasn't their.  So I painted them.

OK, Curt pay attention here.  LOL   The spark plug wiring is flexible rubber and cleaning the seams off of them seems to be a challenge.  When I do this kit again, I will probably do my own wires.  Also, the fit between the wires and the alternator is very tight.   I had to glue the alternator piece on with super glue and hold it tightly while it dryed.

Coming along nicely Paul. I'll definitely keep the plug wire dis fitting issue in mind.

I didn't know it was dual-plug engine. Re shroud color: a little more yellow in the paint would have hit it just right, but the tan is fine too and close enough. Luv the detail in the large scale Tamiyas. Keep up the excellent WIP and fotos!

That's a great idea, harron.   But I painted it with a rattle can so I was limited by the colors I had.  Next time I'll custom mix a color to airbrush.

I did a black wash on the engine and added some more pieces to it.

I don't like to use the word, but AWESOME fits the engine detail. The thinned black wash is excellent for bringing out detail like bolts, crevices here and there and transmission areas. The turbo in different shades of metal helps a lot too. Thanks for sharing the first WIP I've seen of this car!

Thank you very much guys.  Believe me, having this kind of support goes a long way toward keeping me motivated on such a large project.

And the engine is done !!!

Thanks guys


What's next you ask. Well....... bodywork. And with a kit this large it's a lot. The usual routine of prime...sand...prime...fill...sand...prime...



But here is the biggest pieces after the (hopefully) final coats

That's looking nice Paul and hopefully it is your last coat on it. I see you had to make a stand because of the large scale.

Missed a couple of updates!  

The engine looks terrific Paul and it looks like you are making good progress with the bodywork too.
