Right so getting to the closing stages of this build now finally. 


A lot of carbon is being added to all the little parts like the front wing tuning vanes below 



The drs activator is going through the same carbon adding 



The leading edges of the front wing also have had carbon added as well as the inner most tips 



The steering wheel has had the kit decals and carbon added, just need to paint the handles now and add the parts to the back 



Finally after trying to get the fit right I have the lower parts of the front suspension on. 



Then started on the front bulkhead by adding (yep you guess it) carbon to parts.



The gearbox was added, the wheel hub is just sat in place to help glue in one of the suspension arms in the right place for later. I added so silver foil to the exhaust area as heat shielding 



Later on once things had a while to set up I glued the floor pan on and seat in also as well as the upper front suspension arms 



A few more rear suspension parts were added and also the exhaust was glued in place, as it's the real metal one there where no pins to go in the body so a little strip of plastic card was used on the most inside part so it stays hidden 



The seat that won't be seen once finished has had some belts added, they are looses due to the driver figure needing to go in under them slightly as he exits 



The nose is almost finished, everything is just placed at the moment though 



Jeez all those wing parts really beat my vision up while putting the carbon on but I think it looks worth it with the thicker parts of the wings getting a more course grade of weave. 



And finally for this update the wheels have had the tyre seem sanded off then smoothed down the whole surface for the slightly worn look as mclaren Hondas normally blew up withing the first 15 laps so didn't wear the tyres as much as others lol 



More soon
