  1. Good evening, Thank you very much Mueller The assembly continues with a painting session. Titanium white then Lotus yellow. I photocopied the decal sheet onto a Kabuki Tamiya mask sheet. The copy of the yellow decals is cut and then used to mask the yellow. Then, British Racing Green and unmask. The engine will be able to be equipped with its filter. Seam lines removed. More soon. Pascal
  2. Good evening, British Racing Green is in the spotlight! I love this magnificent little F1: Thin, racy, equipped with a BRM engine with an unusual architecture (it's an H16) ... and it's a Lotus! The kit is really superb and the assembly is one of the smartest I have ever seen. So I started this build on November 21 ... with an end goal for early 2021. There will be some rivets to install... The bodywork elements are all drilled to accommodate the riveting in 0.5 and 0.4. Part of the assembly is secured by screws; the holes are drilled and tapped at 1.4. The undersid
  3. Hi, Thank you very much Last details added yesterday... I can call this one done today. Sorry for the poor quality pictures... It’s late, night, tired and lazy to catch the reflex. I will try to take better ones tomorrow. Voilà. Pascal
  4. Hi, Thank you. I finished the rear brakes this evening. Everything is modified and scratched to match my doc. The cockpit is finished and the upper part of the hull will be glued. I also added the welds at the junction of the exhaust pipes and the 3 in 1. Then we have to deal with the front ... Pascal
  5. Bonjour, A bit of cleaning in the working area... Front end progress with radiator mounts and air scoops. Rear completed with anti roll bar and exhausts. More soon. Pascal
  6. Hi, Progress of the day. Pipes, ducts and radiator connected and installed. Lower suspension arms and steering rack in place. More soon. Pascal
  7. Good evening, Well, of course, I lost a part ... Not that small and yet nowhere to be found after a good part of the evening and the morning... The part, the lower left anchor of the rear axle push bar (or tie rod ...), has been redone. I quickly turned a piece of 2x2.25, glued to a plastic card base. A 0.8 stainless steel tenon and a resin bolt to finish and install. Quite a few mods and parts for the upper arms to do what I wanted, but it's done. Sorry for the quality of the photos, but the episode "Carpet Monster" (and I don't even have a carpet!) Made me a little
  8. Hi, The WIP restarts slowly... but surely. Connecting session. The gear box is now installed on the engine. Done for rear with engine/oil filters, fuel connections, underside tubing from engine to radiator... Next step will be the front radiator hoses and ducts installation and the rear drive train. More soon. Pascal
  9. Hi, Quite a few tests for the parts to be assembled on the bodywork elements today. The inside of the nose is painted mat black and the decals installed. The reinforcement plates of the anchorages of the tie rods are painted in Polished Alu Metal Cote with a paintbrush and slightly polished. The tank caps are modified and fitted with machined banjo connectors. It remains to tweak them a little with oils. Finally, as mentioned yesterday, I varnished the small presentation plate. It will be used to brighten up the table during exhibitions! It remains to polish the ed
  10. Good evening, The dashboard is finished, wired and the windows installed on the meters. I did not really manage to take a photo that shows it correctly ... Sorry. Last masking step before varnish A shot of white Disassembly of the parts and installation on their support for the varnish step and presentation in the box so as not to be bothered during this step. Gravity (EU) sprayed, fresh (Flat Pattern 0.3 Meng) It dries quietly It's dry!! I couldn’t really resist a little "Test Fit"
  11. Great build! Beautiful livery and I love the yellow squares on the tires! Pascal
  12. Good evening, The assembly continues quietly. You have to believe that I didn't have enough to rivet ... The front partition receives its own in diameter 0.5. Then also received a good part of its attributes. The steering rack will be installed later .. just like the radiator. It is modified, as well as the pipes connecting to it, in order to weld the fluid inlets / outlets on the body of the radiator. I brought a little detail with the lateral perforated reinforcements and the manufacturer's plate. The interior is quickly fitted with a
  13. Hi, Thank you Boss! I now can call this one done! Et une avec la petite soeur quand même That's it, the last touch-ups are done, the last parts installed and the last minute adjustments made. So I redid the wedges that support the Roaring Beauty with a slightly increased "ground clearance". They are turned in a 10mm aluminum log for more solidity and stability, the Baby is doing well: 1.4kg ... and decorated with Cavallino. I connected the last tube and made a little oil to inject it inside. Her
  14. Good evening, Well, well here it is, I finally chosen the superb AAR Eagle Weslake! It changes from red, but orange and green were not that far away .. the red (s) either either! The kit is not more complicated than that, but the installation of the rivets promises to be... sporty and time-consuming. I started by cleaning the parts of the bathtub / chassis, the interior of which is almost invisible once the tub is in place. Only a small part on each side is polished. The assembly is, as often, carried out by welding. The main parts of the V12 are also ass
  15. Hi, Thanks a lot. The last 2 days were pretty productive. More soon, but the end is near! Pascal
