Thanks to everyone for their kind comments.

Time to fit the body panels over the chassis. I'll complete the body but will display this one with a lot of the innards showing BigGrin

Got the bodywork pretty much sorted. Exhaust system painted and located. The body panels have required very little work to get ready for finishing.BigGrin

Thanks Carl. The panels have been pretty good so far. A small amount of cleaning and the fit seems to work. The die cast undertray will need a bit of adjustment to get the rear body section positioned over the fuel tank.

It takes a great deal of effort for any model to get the 'wow' factor and this is definitely one of those models..... In other words - 'WOW!!!'...Love Love Love

That Bugatti is on my wish list. I'd like to do the first Monaco winner.

Next "Mini-project" the nose grill. All from PE and the difficult part is getting started with everything "square" despite the curves and angles. I made a simple jig to hold two crosspieces and started in the centre.

A central cast piece keys into the PE parts and provides a good datum to work with. With all crosspieces in place the fit into the nose can be checked. I'm using a tiny drop of CA to bond the parts.

My thought on that little challenging bit had been to use Legos to creat the square. I’ll be using solder though. I’ve found a great 70c low melt solder that I get from your side. I mostly use it for the white metal it I’m starting to use it on the stainless as well.

I rather like your method better. It would be a lot easier to square that bit of WM first.

Thanks!

Hi Mark, I've seen some of the guys using a low temp' solder on WM. It's something I've been pondering on for a while. Would you be able to let me have the detail of what you use ( you say it's from this part of the world? ) plus a recommendation on a suitable temp' controlled Iron. Many thanks for commenting on the build.

That nose grille is mind boggling. It's going to be amazing when it's all assembled.
Fantastic work.Love

Beautiful work as always Malc, looking superb, can't wait to see this all painted up and finished! Drool Cool ThumpUp

I'm currently making enquiries about the purchase of an MFH 1:12 F1 kit. If the kit I want is still in stock in Japan and I can get one sent over, a build diary will be posted up here late January/early February 2021, just as soon as it arrives! Should know if I can get one in the next week or so. Drool ThumpUp

Just an amazing kit to construct. The detail is breathtaking, but all would be lost if not in the hands of a talented builder.
Amazing work.Drool Drool Drool
