Hello Spencer,

I can only agree with all the other sentiments that have already been made. You have done an absolutely fantastic job on that mate, well done indeed, and the results that you have achieved are complete testament to all that hard work that you have put in just to get such a finish, it is beautiful work, so credit where credit is due mate and I hope that it brings you as much pleasure as it does to us other mere mortals who have been watching in awe!!

Look forward to seeing the completed car mate.BigGrin

Congratulations to you sir!!ThumpUp ThumpUp

Thanks for all the nice, lovely,superb,awesome and incredible comments!!BigGrin I'll be very happy once its finished and in its case to be honest.. nearly 2 years of learning different things I did'nt know I could do with so little tools... So I look forward to showing you the finished product before Christmas..

I also just wanted to say to all of you that are making the MP4/23 that you are all doing an amazing job, because to be honest it is not as easy to do as some might think even right out of the box!! so credit to all of you..ThumpUp

If there is anyone out there that has not started there's yet and would like it built for them, then PM me

Hi Spence,

I'm about to start painting first parts black, then chrome.
Looking back for your stunning story, I found (page 1) a pair of kind of front wing mountong holes on nose cone teeths.
I've tried to find any good refernece pictures but all I found through google, hasn't such a holes.
Could you provide any refernece pics to measure and drill those holes?
Could you tell me if those holes go trough the teeth or are only a decreased?

Best,

Aras

THX, SpenceBigGrin ,

So it's drilled trough...Blink
Good news is that I skipped painting gloss black waiting for news from you and made air cleaning system equipped with strong fan.
Now I can paint for hours, without risk of deathBigGrin .

Have you drilled those holes through?

Yep Drilled right through then with a square needle file made them "square".. Juat a little added touch and they blank the outside off with the patches during races..

CF Decals are from Studio27 and 1/12th scale... they just seem to be a better option in 1/12th than some 1/8th i've tried

I thought 1/12 CD will be better option.
Now it's just question of good investigation where to apply, wave direction and pattern.

Are we getting a look at the display case or is it being kept as a secret?

It will have to be something special to compliment such a stunning model.
