WOO-HOOO... Don't know this particular kit Ken, but I have the Tamiya one.
It was always known as 'the teapot' for whatever reason.
I'll be looking in to see how you get on.
Great stuff.

Way to go Ken! Nice to see another racing car on the way, looking at the box top couldn't believe how thin those front tyres are compared to my Ferrari's!Blink
(Also couldn't believe how much the chassis looks like a Panther tank hull too!BigGrin )
Will be watching this one with interest.

Work begins on the Renault RE20 Turbo, I think I'm going to enjoy this, my first F1 car, looks quite complex and well detailed.

First disappointment with the Renault RE20 Turbo kit all these screws, springs and nuts are all in the same bag, when I bought the Mefistofeles it came with this case (ignore the ships rigging parts it what ive been using it for since) it just goes to show how manufacturers cut corners.

The level of detail in this kit is awesome I love the way they've done the working suspension (not even left the first page of the instructions)
I decided to jump ahead a fair way on the instructions and mak a start on the engine.
Talk about detail it even had the gearbox casting number There are 28 parts to just those cylinder heads, the pulleys all work I've barely started the engine if this is what F1 kits are like I think I will be building lots more.

Hello Ken.
Just wondering, is the central brake pedal fitted the wrong way around?
Should the angled flap on the toe pedal be facing the other way?
Sliding brake-to-clutch would be extremely difficult.
I'm not sure, but otherwise, it's all looking great.

Keep it coming.BigGrin

All as per instruction Roy (although I've just compared this to an excellent 1 /12 tamiya build of what I thought was the same kit and it's definitely not a reboxed tamiya kit, thee tamiya kit has the gearbox and engine as separate parts(they are molded in one piece in this kit) just goes to show even scalemates get it wrong.

Yes - the Tamiya kit has the pedal the other way around so the 'flap' faces forward and isn't in the way of the drivers foot.
Googling the actual car shows there's NO angled flap at all...
Just goes to show, neither company got it quite right...BigGrin

It make you wonder where they get their technical info from (in actuality you can't see the peddls when it all put together so it's academic really

Work on the RE20 continues, ive barely started the engine, I'm pleased with the way the weathering on the fuel lines look.

OK so you may have noticed I've not posted for a week, well the house insurance doesn't like people posting on social media when you are away.

We were in Scotland last week visiting my missus very poorly father.

We went on a walk up screel hill (they call it a hill, it's more like a small mountain) it was well worth the climb though the view was nothing short of spectacular.

I recon you could see for 30 miles in all directions (and that's not on a clear day)








Anyway back to the build more work done on the suspension and a start on weathering the front engine casing, lot more to do on this, for some reason my usual methods are not working I usually find mixing talc with the paint or sprinkling it on gives the white highlights I want also I generally add burnt umber to get a burnt on from heat oil effect none of which seem to be working here. I don't understand as I've used these methods for years and they've worked every time, can't think what I'm doing different, dementia I recon.
