Well here it is, about 18 month after I started it. One of my most detailed builds to date. Thanks to everyone that followed along with the WIP. I really enjoyed this build and tried to go all-out with it. I decided early on to display it with the bonnet off, and also to have the front wheels off so the suspension and brake details can be seen.
Here what will be my next project - a 1:24 Model Factory Hiro kit of a 1968 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/2. I've not decided yet which version I will go with, but thought I would make a start with the box contents. As always with MFH kits, they are beautifully presented an a red cardboard box Model details are on the side Opening up the box, we are presented with the full colour instruction sheet below this, we can start to see the details. On the right is the resin body, with the clear parts and decals on the left Underneath the decals we find the while metal parts And underneath this, and the foam layer are the PE sheets Onto the details - The resin body. Nicely cast, as you would expect with very little amount of cleanup from what I can see Clear parts -these are vacuum formed so will need to be carefully cut out Decal sheets - I'm not going to remove the protective cover until I'm ready to use them, but at first appearance these are crisp and nicely printed. Again - you would expect nothing less Wheels and tyres - the wheels are nicely turned aluminium and very nicely moulded and detailed rubber tyres to wrap them with. A few more turned metal parts A few extra details - wires, rods and other miscellaneous parts onto the white metal - first bag is the chassis components Second bag contains all the smaller parts which will make up the bulk of the model - these all need identifying and sorting as they are not labelled or numbered like you would get in a mass produced plastic kit. As they are soft metal, they could also be some that are out of shape. All will need careful clean up and attention from the casting process Photo etch - two frets in the box. All nice and detailed - and no tabs to clean up which is a bonus! Onto the instructions - all nicely layed out and illustrated in colour. Reference photos are a necessity to get the correct colours and details for these
