    FINALLY some progress on this kit.  Cockpit area was the target, where the following were added:
    Seat belts
    seat and steering flocking
    scratch building of the brake balance adjuster
    steering wheel wire connections to the instrument panel
    carbon fiber decaling of the sides. cockpit bulk head and instrument panel.  This process was tedious and a real pain as no carbon fibre templates exist for this kit.

    " />

    " />

    " />

    " />

    The pin protruding from the steering wheel is a guide to the steering rod, which is next in line together with the front end.  Hope for more frequent updates now.

    And so the build up continues.  The front end is almost complete, the remaining 2 items being the small wind shield and the attachment of the top inspection panel. These will be done once the build is wrapped up as I still need to give the final wax buff.

    Front works is all scratch built and includes inner coil overs, pedals and steering column, and outside including the hydraulic system reservoirs and master cylinders plus connections.  Kindly note that for all carbon fiber decals I had to cut the template and then cut from decal sheets, as there is no aftermarket template set for this kit.

    " />

    " />

    " />

    " />

    " />

    Brake ducts were also modified to include double sided air intake walls, rather than retaining the 1 side wall as provided with the kit.  These parts were a pain to cover in cf.

    " />

    Test fit with the engine n exhausts

    " />

    Exhaust outlets were also drilled and the exhaust ends also modified accordingly.  The undertray is also covered in carbon fiber decals.

    " />


    Work completed to date, including the nose cone.  The end plates were affixed to the wing plane with 1mm scale allen head rivets.

    " />

    Up next are the electronic boxes and the accompanying wire looms, all of which sits on the side pods.

    More updates... the side pods.   One side houses electronic boxes, with the other host to an electronics box, oxygen tank and water header tank.  The boxes were an integral part of the side pods, and have been separated, with new ones scratch built where necessary.  More wire needs to be added, with resin electric connectors added and retaining harnesses and buckles added.  Separate photo etch faces to the radiators were also added.

    Next is the engine, where nuts, bolts are wire looms shall be the order of the day.

    Engine as is now:

    Some more, detailed the cam covers with photo etch 0.8mm allen head rivets and 1mm hex rivets with round flanges, both by Tuner Model Manufactory.  there are some 18 allen bolts and 10 hex rivers on each cam cover.

    " />

    " />

    Next should be fixing the air trumpet intakes.  These were molded in plastic with the tray of which I removed.  The tray was covered in carbon fiber decal and the trumpets are aluminium ferrules, which are so suitable for this scope.  The base was drilled so tat each trumpet can be individually fitted

    " />

    Thereafter, engine fitting and wire looms should follow.

    Time for another update, finally.  The engine is now ready.

    " />

    " />

    " />

    Mock up with the exhausts

    " />


    " />


    Mated with the chassis

    " />

    " />


    Wheel alignment test was ok

    " />

    Photos are a bit crap, taken in a hurry to share with you all. The engine needs a good clean up and the yellow markers on the plugs line are to be re-made. Otherwise on to the next step, fitting of the side pods, rigging of the wires from side pods to engine and fitting of radiators.

    Hope to bring with me for next week's meeting.

    Thanks for viewing!
