Hi all the instructions tell you to leave 2.5 mm of the stud sticking out of the hub and thread the wheel nut onto that unfortunately the narrow part of the hole  into which you are supposed the thread the studvont is recessed 3 mill into the nut, my initial thought was to sand 3 mm off the nut thus bringing the thread able area forward, however the nut is tapered (as is the centre of the wheel) in the end I decided to drill the nut out so the hole was the same all the way through then drill that out 1.4 mm and thread that onto the stub, worked a treat.















The skirts are just placed there for a look see as there is loads more to do before they are finally fitted.

I'm really pleased with how this is going, I wonder if protar did any more of these F1 kits and if they can still be had on ebay and such.

More work on this she now has all her wheels, one of the many really cool details of this kit is they even went to the trouble of molding the wear indicators on the tyres.

Some of the exhaust and turbo parts primed, and the worst decal applied I'm not going to say that was hard but it did involve quite a few expletives and quite a bit of nail biting (they needed cutting anyway)

So did some work on the turbos and exhausts and added another decal (these big decals are a real pita I think I in the future I may cut big decals into smaller ones.

I'm really peed off I've got to take the rear suspension all off as I've forgotten to add the air cooling ducts to the disks, gthey were a pain in the first place.

Well the turbos are installed (what a pita) loads more plumbing to add, and of course (I'm really dreading this) the headrers. Added a couple more decals to the fuselage soon be able to add the pontoons permanently.

Thanks Roy, means a lot coming from you. Tbh I still can't decide whether my first traction or the reale de france are my best builds, I really am enjoying the detail in this kit though.

That is brilliant work Ken! I just thank God I don't have to apply a load of decals like that on mine!Blink
I particularly love that effect you've got on the exhausts with the heat-stressed look - really looks like that engine has been roaring around the track! This is a great model and well done!

Added those headers (if I had hair I wouldn't have now) they needed loads of heating and bending to get anywhere near fitting.

I didn't realise the pontoons on these cars floated (they are mounted on a leaf spring of some sort, at least that's what it looks like to me)

Hi all nearing the end, it says on the box removable covers to show detail, well it took me near on 2 hrs to get those side skirts to look anything like good fitting. I can imagine the conversation oh let me show you all the detail, by the time I got the skirts off they would have lost the will to live so the skirts will be staying on (shame after all the work that went into the turbos)

Work progresses on the RE20, on the last leg now. Bit peed of with the instructions re the seat belts if you follow the instructions your seat belts will go round the seat nearly twice so now I need to alter them and they were a pita the first time.

Looking more fantastic every time Ken! Beautiful work!!Cool Cool
Its a real shame not to be able to view all that detail under the skirts, would it be possible to adapt the fitting so they were held in place with a couple of strong miniature magnets instead of the kit system? My plastic wheel hubs are replaced with magnetic metal ones at the end of the instructions to make 'changing the tyres' easier Blink No way! Once they're on they're staying on!BigGrin
Really love the weathering on the engine parts!

Wow, this is a very impressive build Ken. Love the way the paint and the exhaust turned out.
