  1. Thanks! I will install the painted/clear coated rivets after the body 2K finish coat.😉 Just for fun DFV Cosworth piston and rod. Voilà. Pascal 🤗
  2. Hi, Thanks Mates! Decals session Once dry they are cleaned as well as the surrounding area. Then holes are done in the decals. More soon. Pascal
  3. Hi, A last sanding session on the metal body, then: - Primer, - Giallo Modena, - Rosso Corsa. Also started to spray primer on the first 200 metal rivets. 400 left to do... before GM&RC. Few of them will be White. Voilà. La suite bientôt! Pascal
  4. 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. Pascal
  5. 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. GC Primer, then Giallo Modena: Forza!! Then time for Rosso Corsa: Forza Ferrari!! 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. More soon Mates! Pascal

  7. 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. Nothing more for today. More soon Pascal
  8. 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!
  9. Hi, Sanding, welding, riveting... Few progress in the “office” area. Paint session, dashboard session and gear lever/selector. I was not that happy with the instruments, so I turned new ones and made brackets from aluminium foil. Then test fitting. Oils and screws added on the steering wheel and, of course, the Cavallino Rampante! Voilà. Pascal
