I spotted this great looking model kit on the local modelspace facebook page. BigGrinBigGrin BigGrin
I've subscribed this afternoon, so now the agonising wait for the first issue.
Not much to post until then but let's hope that we can get a few SA diaries on this build.

It's here. At last the first issue.BigGrinBigGrin BigGrin
Nicely packed in a cardboard box which is much better than the soft packing that the MP4/23 came in.
Now....shall I resist temptation and collect a few issues before starting?

It must be very tempting Malc, but I think waiting until you have more parts would be the most sensible approach, such as waiting until you have all four brake assemblies or wheels/tyres and then building them all at the same time, otherwise they may have slight differences? Just a thought?

You could of course go ahead and build any assemblies that you have all the parts for if they are not repeated in the build, such as front and rear wings? Cool ThumpUp

Yes, I will wait for more parts to arrive. Possibly more than half of the kit. It is better to do similar parts together ( like roughing the tyres ).
It also gives me chance to look at the great extra details that you other builders are adding BigGrin

4th Delivery....!! .....but hang on this is pack 8 Confused .
Oh well I'm sure the rest will get here some time. This certainly justifies waiting for a lot of the parts before starting.

Having seen some of the great detailing stuff on the UK forum I've gone for some extra decals and PE hose clamps. Cool Looking forward to starting this later in the year.

Some nice looking extras there Malc, I recognise those PE clamps as the ones I was going to use on my Lambo, they are very nice although a bit fiddly. Unfortunately the misses threw them away accidently Crying

I'd get that 4th delivery sorted as the chances are you'll get another pack 8 parts for your 8th delivery

Hi Grantj. Great to see that there's someone else in Jozzie doing this build. I'm lucky that the boxes have been ok in the post so far.BigGrin
Are you going to be putting a build diary up on the Forum?
Cheers, Malc.
