Beautiful paintjob, and that radiator structure looks great, I never realised it looked like that.

Thank you, so far, no big problems... Typical mfh, testfit a lot before painting and learn the instructions. I have just found out, i could have put a lot more parts on the tub prior to painting... So now i have a second batch ready to mount (attachements for the plumbing along side the tub, attachements where the struts go from the engine on to the thub,...), and the fitting is tight, because the tub is already painted and cleared. :roll:
Ahh yes. MFH is definitely challenging, good luck getting everything to fit.

Thank you guys!

Noticed that i could have put some more parts on the tub, prior to painting. To late now, so painted them afterwards and installed them (3x part M90 and 1x part M62)

Since the tub was cleared already, it was a nice tight fit :roll: So a new lesson, study the instructions even better next time... :

Placed the missing radiator tubes. Red shrink tube supplied in the kit didnt look good, so searched for better red shrink tube:

Image

Image

Placed the exhausts, they are kept in place with tiny springs. Spend a few times on my knies, trying to find them, those things can fly far :roll: Also placed the ignition modules on the gearbox:

Wanted to see what it looked like all together:

Next step is to epoxy the two halves together, and finish some smaller stuff :wink:

Follow my progress on facebook: The F1 Scale Model Builder :idea:
