Having built the 1/20th scale of this car I had to read through from the start. Enjoy seeing the fine work done so far.
This is one cool looking car and in 12th scale should really look awesome.

Good evening,

Thank you for your comments.

Progress on the gearbox is laborious but rewarding: we are starting to see the end of it!

The battery, its wiring and the starter are done. The gearbox oil circuit completed.

Image

Image

The oil radiators are assembled and equipped with the rear light.

Image

I made a small part for the back of the rear light. It will later be equipped with its wiring.

Image

The oil tank is installed, the recuperator is temporarily put in place: photo-etched collars to be formed should soon fix it and the clamps which hold the hose are on standby.

Image

I made a little “oil” for the hose and the can got a bit of it.

The exhausts are painted.

Image

Image

More soon.

Fantastic. How did you make your “oil” for the hose, may I ask? It looks superb. The whole gearbox looks great, really.

Good evening,

Thanks a lot! ;)

The “oil” is a mix of Tamiya Smoke X-19 and Orange X-26.

The can straps are done, the Serflex in place and a Gulf sticker brightens up the oil tank.

Image

I drilled a hole in the axis of the cap and slipped a little “oil” in for more consistency: it comes from the top, flows down the side of the can to the bottom.

A terminal, screws and cable: the rear light is ready to be connected.

Image

Time to take care of the interior.
The first step is to start giving a little shine before riveting the aluminum sheets.

Image

Image

More soon.

Good evening,

Thank you very much Gentlemen!

The “bathtub” is:
- Polished,
- riveted,
- assembled (welded)

Image

Image

The gearbox control linkage has been modified: the White Metal part is cut and replaced by a blued brass one.
The selector is detailed with the addition of welds, a bolt accompanied by its nut and washers.
It’s more coherent, pretty… and I like it!

The original knob is very good.
I told myself that rather than painting it in wood tones, I would make one… in wood.
I cut a “cube” from a piece given to me by a friend (stratospheric model maker!!), of a species that I don’t remember.
I then simply turned it and varnished it.
This type of wood is very hard, but very beautiful.

Image

Not much image today (Las Vegas this morning, flight this afternoon), but work and lots of preparation and modifications which should quickly make progress in the cockpit.
Besides, since I like simplicity and think of everything…
I decided to drill the left side of the bathtub.
This is of course the thickest part, for a large diameter hole... with all my rivets next to it.
It was necessary to take out different diameters of drills and finish with the step drill.

Image

Here is some of the prepared pieces.

Image

Image

I reproduced the appearance of the anti-slip engraving on the pedals; for what we will see… but it’s there!

Image

And here is some of the painted pieces waiting for all their details.

Image

Image

That's it that's all.

Good evening,

Thank you Sir!

Work on the interior continues, particularly on the dashboard.
I started from the principle that, although pretty, it was possible to add 2 or 3 details.

Some modifications are made to the pressure gauges (pressure connections, specific cable for temperatures) the starter push button is turned, the switches and other indicator lights connected, the support for the small panel created...

The rev counter is on stand-by: the needles must be painted.
The glasses will finalize the assembly of the meters.

Image

Image

Image

It's progressing slowly, but it's moving forward.
