Hi everyone,

Getting stuck into this one from Tamiya. Going to include the Hobby Design photo-etch set and CF decals. As I've got some really good reference photos of the engine bay I'm going to try and replicate as much of the hosing detail as possible.

Anyway into the build and a few progress pics - mostly working on the engine/gearbox and the turbo setup. Started filling and sanding the injection molds on the floor...

Bit more progress... next step is to start on the carbon decals and start on all the hoses and fittings

So some slow progress has been made. first stage of adding hosing and wiring is complete, started laying down the CF decals and adding the little things like rivets. Will need to add extra details once the firewall is ready. I also had a crack at doing my own springs. Took quite a few goes to get the right coil diameter and wire thickness but I'm pretty happy with how it came out for a first time.

Got some colour on the body this weekend. First decal down and had a couple of issues with it but managed to rescue it.

Glad you guys like it!

More progress made - engine bay I'm calling done and most of the decals are on the main body piece. Couldn't help myself and did a test fit to see how it was looking

Progress has been slow but I'm planning to get it done before I go overseas in December. Clear coat is on and polishing has started - I've got the engine cover done and the front fenders/front hood.
