Hi guys,

I'm an avid Modeler, have been since small.

I have purchased the Mclaren and been pottering around with it for about a year. With Postage here, it can get a bit frustrating. I'm on edition 40 and just ordered 41-50, but as usual I'm waiting. In the meantime I have come across this website and I'm very impressed with the quality of Builds from RMI and SennaMentalme, and I sincerely hope my car turns out as good as yours have.

I am going to strip what I have build so far and see where I can get carbon decals and have a look around at the original car. Once I have gotten the Carbon Fiber, I will start posting the pics.

Hi Cosworth,
Welcome to the forum. It's great to see another Jo'burg resident having a go at this project.BigGrin I've been using the subscription service to get my parts and, but for a few minor delays, it's worked well. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your build.
Cheers
Malc.

Hi Malc,

Cheers

Paolo.

Hi Paolo. Glad to hear that the build is progressing. I actually use the Microset and Microsol products which I got via the internet direct from the states. I've since found that they can be got in SA from http://www.mdfmodels.co....hing-materials?start=11 . MDF models have a great range of stuff and I've used them before with no problems. Postage adds a little to the cost but these products really work.

I look forward to seeing some pictures of your build.
Malc.
