    I will try, thanks for the advice! I thought that probably I will end up repainting the complete panel. Metalizer paints are very difficult to spot fix, it is better to do the whole panel, that is correct. Thanks. Miguel.

    Codger, the fenders y apply Molotow Liquid Chrome, I used air brush, my concern is with handlic the finish, do not know if the finish is stong enough for finger prints or sow, do not know if a clear coat can be applay and how will react! Any feed back/recomendatin from any member will be appreciated. Even I can say so far that Molotow Liquid Chrome is the close as posible to Chrome plated. I like the looking, but handling?

    Tameo Williams FW08 TMK285

    Tony My appologies, I look in to HLJ and do not have it any more, I knew they had it because when I bought the Tameo one I faund that Studio 27 had one and I did not bought it. I was interested in any 6 wheeler in F1 and to my knowledge Tyrell, Williams, Ferrarim, March, were the ones had tested them, I might forgot if there where any other brand. I collected information and have a file of the different 6 wheelers built ever. But you are correct many of those were scale produced very limited. If I find my document I will shere pictures with you. Regards Miguel

    Codger, for the doors looks to be feasible, for the wheels I do not have a problem, they are OK, the only thing that happen was that with the time the hubs got stuck with the axle and when I try to remove them I loose them and end up having a bunch of pieces in the table! Thanks.

    Codger, great tips, I will make a stand and have some changes to it, because I do have the model in to the following stage: I might be too late for some modifications and/or dis-assm some components. I had a night mare putting the fenders in place due to the rolling limitations I had. Do not know if it will be worth to dis-assm parts that will be damage by just removing them!, would it worth it? PD. The door windows are real glass, did you noticed? Thanks.

    I would like to share some of what I being working in the SoI (Star of India). As I had left the model in a self for many years and and not cover at all, you will imagen how the model was, bery dirty, so a cleaning process started. The model as I restarted look like this; I had to make a stand to work on it, as you can see the stand was made out of a Great wine box. This way I was able to clean as much as I was able. The problem is that the chassiss was assm with some components and cleaning was not easy. In the process I end up with two wheels being affected because the central hub was loose and I had to re-do those wheels, never the less it was chalenging and help me to warm engine to restart the assm process again. Here is a picture of the wheel recent assm process There are MANY things to share! To be able to re-start the modeling back I had to set up a working table to work on my models so I used my father old working table (he is a civil engineer, retired, he is still with us with 89 years old, Yes I'm lucky) and here is part of my working area of course with the SoI; You can see the leader on the lower right side that I used to cover the seats and part of the door panels. Well I see that is enough for today, I do not want to get you boaring. I hope that my thread does not get boaring at all, if it does please do not hesitate say so! To all, have a great week end and hope wonderfull modeling time.

    Codger, I started to look in to your thread link, I can tell you that it is being a night mear to build the kit with the Pocher instructions only and very limited or none reference till now. You go in to the problem to assm the wheels, and the SoI (Star of India) has 6 and I was able to assm them and after the 25 years in the shelf I end up havving 2 wheels to have the center hub loose, so you can think what it happen and I end up having to re-aasm those two wheels. May SoI as of today has many problems and as you say in your thread, it will end up in a cristal case somy will excibit it in the best way possible, because it has some problems like doors willnot close due to a interference problems, reason why in the photos postes the doors are open, so I will have to take advantage of hte situation of the model to show the veauty of it. From what I hav read/seen so far, des-assm the model at this point will be almost imposible unfutunatly, if I had involved may paricipation in this forum or any other reference before it would be another story. To be,honest I'm glad I re-started the model again and wantes to be finish and able to display it. Thanks for your feed back and encouraging words! Have agreat week end!

    Codger, once more, thanks! and appreciate your words. RC was fun, I started with cars, pass to airplanes (fun to do acrobatics), but Heli was something, but with my 63 years old RC is over. 1:1 is a good reference for my models, and even I can tell you I own a Mechanical shop and run it every day, I do the work, reason why I end up with the 220. Great day!

    Modeling after more than 25 years.

    Codger, thanks! The two models are impresive, I do not think I will get to that detail due to some early mistakes I made in my model, but be sure that the way it is going I will feel proud of my work. I see that being in a group like this will learn a lot. FYI Modeling is not my only hobby, I do Astronomy and I'm rebuilding a 1962 220 MB, aslo I did some RC Helicopter (not any more!), so after some personal analysis I decided to stay with modeling, Astronomy and my MB. I will try to keep posting as my progress goes. Regards.
