I am a bit behind the people that have already built the test version.

After getting my hands on the first set of parts I suitably impressed with the qality. The paing work is a gorgeous metallic affair and the bumpers cam out to a high shine with just a gentle whipe over with a microfibre cloth.

The headlights also have some really nice detail to them Cool

This will look pretty sweet on display with my Laborghini especially once they have had a layer of Tamiya Wax applied Cool

I will be adding a dab of matt black paint to the number plate screws to hide they silver from screwing them in

Thanks for the comments guys.

It is a really nice feeling kit so far, a good sign of things to come I expect. I'm really loving colour and how the metallic flakes pop Cool

Thank you all for stopping by and your comments BigGrin

Issue 2 went on sale yesterday, here is my progress with it, must admit forgot all about taking pictures with this one Blushing

We get the the front wheel and brake assembly.

The first job was to get the tyre on the wheel hub, sounds easy right? LOL

This task is a bit of a work out but once done you get a really night snug fit of the tyre on the rim, it wont be going anywhere!! Start off by heating the rubber up either with a hair dryer or leaving it to soak in the sink in hot water (not boiling) for a while. I did both. I then inserted one half of the wheel in and heated the rubber some more, put the whole thing on a hard surface tyre down first and pushed really hard with the palm of my hand.

You do need to be careful not to melt the rubber if you are using a hairdryer!! and once you have the tyre seated make sure it seated correctly all the way around on both sides otherwise when it cools you could end up with a disformed tyre Blink

Next is to assemble the brake assemble, a simple enough task by putting the steering knuckle, disk shield and brake disk together, then the caliper is applied securing it all together. The whole assembly is then secured inside the wheel. Just make sure it rotates Wink

Looks like some very tiny parts that the "carpet monster" would love to get hold of.

That said they are detailed and look really good.

Hope the rest of the build goes well.
Happy Modelling

Dave, I'm here DROOLING over my keyboard over this car! Drool

Like the others, I am impatiently waiting for this to be offered here in the U.S. What the holdup is I don't know-----------I heard about and seen this car over a year ago, yet still no subs for any of us here yet. Mad

Keep up the good work! If and when I get my hands on one of these, I'll be superdetailing it like no tomorrow. Brake/Emergency lines, full engine wiring and hoses...........the whole bit.

I've already plunked down some change for Pocher's upcoming 1/8 '55 Mercedes 300SL......I'd sure love to have this parked along with it! Wink
