Hello fans of the big McLaren,

Over the last 6 months I read a lot here in this forum. Especially Franjos and Maurizios threads were a big source of inspiration. I began to build my model at the beginning of april. So it won't be a complete building report. But I would like to show my progress. Inspired by the above mentioned threads I added a lot of bolts, nuts and wiring to the McLaren. But enough words from my side, here are some pics. I hope you like it.


I´ve started with the engine and tried to improve the look of the air intake









A few weeks later I achieved good progress on the edge, I substituted some parts of the engine with metal parts











Later this year I finished the monocoque. I mostly brushed the structure of the carbon











here you can see the effects of different angles from the light falls on the monocoque





After finishing the monocoque I worked on the instruments, and here is the result









The last two months i recreated the left sidepod area. The valve system was completely build from zero, but in my opinion it was worth the hustle. recently the model looks like this.

Thanks for the opportunity to post my model
best regards

Great detailing work so far; why someone did not make a super detail kit for this model is beyond me.
