Pascal, a question? What would you use to get those tiny bits of white metal polished? 

An absolutely stunning piece of work BTW 😀

That is jaw dropping Pascal.  I am blown away by your level of detail.  You should be extremely pleased with yourself.

I'm another one who's late to the party - mainly because I'm not a car guy and don't come in here very often - but man oh man, what a WIP! Pascal, thank you for sharing this! I thought the kit alone was impressive but reading through your thread has shown me than even a superkit can be improved. Wow.

 

Beautiful work. Bravo.

Another latecomer: oh, boy, that’s just fabulous. Simply beautiful work. I shall be using those pics as detail reference for my Heller 1/24 version, for sure!

best,

M.

@Pascal happy new year

you should publish a small book about all your WIPs 

this is the benchmark, even a level better than many excellent models posted on the MFH website.

Beautiful model with many similarities to our MFH Eagle project. They would be marvelous together in the same display.

Hi Mates,

 

First if all I wish you a very Happy New Year!

Health, Happiness, Prisperity and....tons of kits!! 

 

Thanks for all your kind comments regarding the RROOOOAAARING PAPAYA build.

@PC2012: sorry for Late reply...

I use files and all what is needed for metal and I make my own tools gluing different grades of sanding foam on wood sticks as well as micro mesh bands.

 

I must admit that the M7A kit is simply stunning! One of my favorite. The M19 early looks to be   In the same vein, with a breathtaking detailed DFV engine... and dressed in Papaya orange. ;) 

 

The veeeeery old Heller kit is a great kit! The tires are not very good...

 

@sharknose156: my workbench is far from being at the required level for a book!!😂🤣🤫

 

@Codger: Yep! I love the T1G and,of course, have one in the stash!

But the Ferrari 312F1 67 will be better on display with 67 Eagle Weslake ;)

I have different paint for the Eagle: ZP, ZP with the small flakes size and Gravity Colors which has really tiny flakes!

I wrote to Eagle few years ago in order to have the exact color of 1967... They replied me that they didn't remember exactly!! I will try to find back the email.

 

I will try to take new pictures of the M7A and of the 312F1(I think I never post the last made...)

And I will try to post the last progress done on the 1/12 1967 Monaco  Chris Amon 312F1 ;) 

 

Thanks again for the interest for this build.

Also, i forgot to say earlier: I LOVE the paint colour. I immediately started brainstorming model ideas just so I could buy some!

Absolutely fantastic build! If I may suggest a couple of things to make it look like it's "on the grid", how about adding some ash grey inside the exhausts (leaded fuel!) and a light wash of dirtied clear orange inside the oil breather pipes?
