Absolutely gorgeous model - really fantastic work Pascal, I really love the effect you've got on the exhausts - just superb, all of it!

Good evening,

Thank you so much Mates!

Well there we are ...
It is over.
I can call this one done.

The two windshields are in place, riveted.
The mirrors are painted, polished and installed using a bracket placed from inside the tub.
I varnished the rear scoops and fitted them with the Dzus.
As expected, only the right one is in place.
The photos in daylight will certainly give another aspect to the model: we will see tomorrow.
A small photo with some friends taken from their box for the occasion.

A small comparison between the 3L H16 BRM and the supercharged 8 in line 2.3 liter  has Bugatti.

That is definitely one of the finest model racing cars I've seen in a long time, absolutely beautiful work Pascal! And that's a lovely collection of F1 cars that you have there!

 

Looking forward to the next one!

Good evening,
 
Thank you all for your patience, your involvement and your comments during this WIP.
 
Here are some of the latest images of the Lotus 43.
She joined her club and some of her friends.
No showcase to store them, it would demoralize me to see them every day, noticing only the flaws.
I prefer to see them only a few times a year for exhibitions with my friends.
