Had this kit a while now and finally made a start.

 

I'll also adding the Top Studio brakes set and small detail up set plus West decals.

 

A few images below of my progress so far. More detail work to do to the engine yet, but also need to get started on the body and other components to keep things moving. Will post some more images when I progress 🙂

Good progress so far... Those brakes do look nicely detailed.

The engine and gear box looks great and the Top Studio brake set looks the dogs dangly bits!

That's already looking pretty special - at this rate it should look awesome when complete.

Managed to get a bit of time to start spraying some of the main parts.

 

Not great photos but pretty happy with the results. Primed, colour and three clear coats.

Leaving to dry thoroughly then will mask and spray the darker colour on the main body area.

Thanks.

I used the Tamiya TS cans; TS-17 Gloss Aluminium and TS-38 Gun Metal with TS-13 clear finish.

 

Will invest in an airbrush at some point but as still getting back into modelling after many years off I'm happy to use these for now

Well, why not, you can get a great finish from the TS cans. They're a bit expensive in the long run but easy enough to use.

A bit more progress

 

Finding the decals pretty hard on this one as fairly thin but not too bad!

Managed to finish this project today.

Hasn't turned out as well as I'd hoped as had to buy replacement decals (original were old and mis-coloured) which turned out to be REALLY thin but pretty pleased with the end result.

 

Will post more pics in the 'Ready For Inspection' area

Nice one, Mark.

I did this one several(???) years ago in papaya test colours and it was a pleasure to build. Thank you for the trip down memory lane.

 

Lovely, clean work, sir
