Hi Mates,

 

Thank you very much! ;) 

@imster:  Hi Boss, the Black used is the semi gloss black from ZP over a coat of Gravity primer.

The whole steering wheel was painted with it, then treated with oils (w&N white, Sennelier Gris de Payne and Rembrandt  Gris Froid).ZP demi gloss Black is very good, but the best of all is still the Humbrol 85 for me ;) 

 

@mueller: Yes, we talk about it for few days... a 312B would have been ... a dream!

I LOOOOOVE the Daytona!

But this is also an open door to other beauties I need!

M7A, M19, Lotus 38, 43, MS80...

Pffff!...

Sigh!...

 

Pascal, the Bad Bad Boy who already ordered a Type 49!

Oh yes Pascal, the announced Daytona Spider is really seductive.
And you're right, MFH has so many great models.
Only limited by the purse.
What do I buy first ...let's throw the dice.
 

And have fun with your Lotus!

Good evening,

 

Few progress on the Red Roaring Beauty!
Riveting the bathtub and the bulkhead is now done.
The wooden shifter knob is clear coated and test fitting is mandatory for the engine/cockpit/body subassembly.

I like the work on the gearknob, I assume it was hand painted with a clearcoat over the top? Your front end brake and clutch lines look superb too!

Oh Pascal, great work with many highlights !
The steering wheel looks even better in the picture.
And your wood Gear knob is perfectly taken.

Hi Pascal, this is great work. Apologies for not replying earlier. I love the effort you have put into this. The rods and weld lines particularly stand out, but the whole lot is a work of art.

 

I look forward to the next updates.

Hi,

 

Thank you so much for the kind comments Mates.

@imster: Yes Imraan.

Hand painted with oils then clear coated with Klear with a paintbrush.

 

I made some new aluminum spacers.

Paint work began on the nose and upper cowling.9FFE927A-6C97-416D-A97D-1E8FB7519631.jpeg.250bae1523a9f1aa14c58165b94a0190.jpeg8FB02B82-8976-49F6-866F-86CA0559DE9B.jpeg.e14382f14deb64376aa7eef0571459b3.jpegBCB82753-FDE1-4229-898E-F7C1D4ED57DD.jpeg.56c33e198de87c0b669470e2ae876da8.jpeg

 

GC Primer, then Giallo Modena: Forza!!

Then time for Rosso Corsa: Forza Ferrari!!C9BEB875-1268-496A-87F6-A13A1A8DB1BE.jpeg.d7b7b18ca6bd0c367ecc02401436f525.jpeg294A540E-7496-4E3C-90CB-0FD78985FB53.jpeg.8ce7030fcf6cdcf6b3ac07a7fc35f83d.jpeg1BB96A02-D911-4798-B4CD-184E578EC44A.jpeg.9ed87b7afdc957c6be65e91e44345e35.jpeg5A519A3D-E36C-4CE3-BE3D-1B48BCFEB5A9.jpeg.aa6d64fc6531cdc09599cef05a72c8b6.jpegD08ED1F3-0A4C-4CE9-A50E-70C291B90F48.jpeg.fa7bc35c03164f5fcec0691dcabac07e.jpeg71140471-B71D-44C0-BC67-F97681A49286.jpeg.18bde3b3f083e548f557cae2cbc89b33.jpeg66CCD228-7653-40D9-B469-A54DEB21BC0A.jpeg.c7feb90ddcdf7df65a1b9920050d011a.jpeg3280FC9C-C595-40D9-9D0F-5D791F926019.jpeg.ca809d674556b26d6ff96e934a1ab429.jpeg

 

I met a small problem on the nose, but a touch up solved the issue.

The Ferrari emblem place and the fittings holes were masked before clear coat.

 

I also detailed the dampers, adding adjusting knobs made from modified F1Specialties brass electronic connectors.

They were chemically burnished and a tiny adjusting screw added in the middle. A Koni decal brought the final detail.

Nice work on those suspensions! I've not heard of F1 Specialities, I assume they are not in  business anymore? Good idea to burnish them, I used the same technique on some bolts for my Lotus 49 build and I was very happy with the results.

 

Nice save on the paintwork too! I cant wait to see this one finished Pascal!

Hi,

 

Thank you Mates!

@imster: No, F1 Specialties (Perfect Parts) is no longer in business, but I still have parts!

Their Safety Belts Sets were just AWESOME!! Still the best compared to all available brands!

I like to work with the blackening/burnishing agent.

I use Blacken’it for years on Friul tracks and metal barrels as I do on Race cars metal parts.

The wheels centers of the M7A were blackened as different parts on the 1/20 312F1... and the rear stab/anti roll bar on this one!

In 2words: Cool product!

 

@mueller: Yep!

These are the kit’s springs.

Nice as the spring diameter is large enough. ;)

Hi,

 

Thanks Mates!

 

Decals session
Once dry they are cleaned as well as the surrounding area.
Then holes are done in the decals.

Nice work, good to see the decals are a strong white so no bleed through, I'm looking forward to seeing this done with all the rivets in place, how will you do the rivets?

Just for fun
