Not sure I`d have been brave enough to open up those louvres, but you`ve done a fantastic job on them and the end result proves the effort worthwhile.

Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

That's looking so good Malc now that you have all of the main body parts painted and fitted. You seem to have made a very good job of getting all of the joints between the panels nice and snug and neatly aligned, which isn't easy I know!

Great work on those louvres too, they've really come alive now that they're painted and very brave to take that leap of faith in opening them up, no going back once you've started them but a very good end result achieved. They look great.

Very well done Malc! Drool ThumpUp

Many thanks for all the comments and support.

Kev, you're right about those resin panels they have given me a few challenges but I think I've found a good compromise with the fitting. BigGrin

Well... I've reached the stage where the car without body panels is finished BigGrin BigGrin . Couldn't resist taking a few pictures to share. Almost a shame to cover it up.
These MFH kits do provide plenty of detail and although pricey give a very satisfying result.

Just astounding!
I think I'd be tempted to stand the body next to the chassis in a display case.
As you say - a shame to cover it up.Love

The detail on this kit is amazing. Bolts that look like bolts and not screws. The brake lines and the connectors. Everything is so detailed. Loving this kit and your doing an amazing job as well bringing it to life. Beautiful work.
Best Regards,
Ron

Drool Jaw-droppingly beautiful result. These are the type of kits we can all aspire to own and build, just need to save up for a very long time BigGrin

I agree with Roy, if it was me i would display it with the body off too ThumpUp

That is stunning.Its easy to think that because these kits are so highly detailed it is easy to get such a stunning result.That could not be further from the truth.It takes an enermous amount of skill and effort to produce a result as spectacular as this.I do hope you consider sending some pictures to Mr Hiro.I am sure he will inculde this in the gallery on MFH website.

Thanks Roy, Ron, Carl, Gray, and Mark for the great comments. This kit has been a challenge ( and an eye watering price ) but a real pleasure to own and build. Nearly complete now and I'll be posting some pics of the bodywork soon.

That is a stunning build Malc and a great testament to your skills as a model builder. Definitely museum quality!

I know it's going to be a shame to cover up all of that beautiful detail, but it will still look amazing as a finished and 'fully clothed' car with all of it's bodywork attached. You will always have the photos of the build to show any admiring guests just how much detail is hidden within!

Very well done Malc, top job as always. Drool Drool ThumpUp

Thanks again to everyone for the kind comments.
I'm getting very close to the chequered flag with this build now..BigGrin BigGrin Body panels painted and Exhaust pipe prepared. No decals yet ( and only 5 anyway ) so they will be positioned once the body is mounted on the chassis.

Looking very nice indeed Malc, can't wait to see it all completed and I'm sure that with your skills, when you take that chequered flag it will be in first place!

Very well done! Drool ThumpUp

Finally got it over the line !! BigGrin

Here's my finished result of the great Alfa 158, 1/12 scale MFH kit. This was the car that won the very first F1 world championship race at Silverstone in 1950. The number 2 vehicle driven by Giuseppe Farina who went on to win the first drivers championship.

This was my first 1/12 scale MFH and although it was quite a challenge I'm very pleased with the result. BigGrin BigGrin

More pictures to follow in the Finished build gallery section.
