Very nice, clean work as always. Have you tried 'blacken-it' for things like the chain? I've found it doesn't work with all PE parts as it only reacts with certain metals, but those that it does work with it gives a good effect.

Never heard of the stuff, do you have a link for it?

Hi Imster,

What a beautiful model!! Looks absolutely stunning. Great work!

Since I'm about to start building this kit, I wonder what color you used for the engine block (the goldish color)?

 

Regards,

Hi Paul,

 

The ‘gold’ coloured parts of the engine were actually a mix of Alclad Pale Gold and Alclad Pale Burnt Metal, I mixed them roughly 50:50

Also for anyone interested, this build will feature very soon in Tamiya Model Magazine International. I have just done the finishing touches to the write up and will be submitted, further info will be posted if necessary

Thanks Paul, I should be more regularly featured towards the latter part of 2019 with more oob builds and new kit builds. In the meantime I am working on the article for my 1/20 Lotus 49 build

I'll be looking out for that too :D

 

I've finally got all my detailing kits for my RC166 hopefully this year I'll get round to it. 

 

Good news man, this kit is probably my favourite of all the kits I've built, I'm sure you will love it and judging by your work you will make it into a masterpiece

I'm not so confident in my work as you mate, but I'll give it my best shot 👍  Got a few other builds in front on the RC166 hopefully starting in the the next week or so.
