Hi Maurizio,

I'm not really sure of your question but I think you are referring to the straps that hold the "pink" tubes to the monocoque chassis? As in the picture below.

They are top studio parts "wire band set".

Hope that helps.

Finished !!! BigGrin BigGrin

Now with so much detail to display I really can't cover it up with the body.

I'm going to be a bit unconventional here with the body shell.

I've made a support bracket from sheet Aluminium. A "Z" bend epoxied onto the base plate.

It'll support the body like this.
There's a plastic clamp to hold it in place.

Very well done.

An unusual way to display the body but it looks fantastic and saves a lot of space while allowing you to see the whole of the surface detail.

Very well thought out.
Happy Modelling

Hi Malc.

My 11 pack is coming. I will work on turbos and exhaust. I'll repaint the turbos and exhaust.

- The turbos stickers is with the pack or is an extra decal?

- I searched the carbon decal for intercooler duct but i didn't found (are no longer avaible from autograph). If i right remeber, the decals are in 4 parts for each duct. Do you use autograph decal or you self made it?
I need the mask to reproduce the 4 carbon parts, but i don't know how I can.

Thanks for patience Malc

Hi Francesco,

The nameplate stickers for the turbos are supplied in stage 69.

That's a pity about the intercooler decals. I used those on my build.


I have included a photo of my decals which maybe you can use as a rough guide by printing and enlarging the image?

Otherwise you can make a template with tracing paper. There are 4 decals on each intercooler.

I hope that helps.

Malc.
