Hi,

 

Thank you very much Peter!

 

Time to work on the Hewland Gearbox.

 

Parts were already sand blasted then primed with GC light grey primer... sorry for the picture!

Parts drilled where I'd add some details.

The A/N line is ready.

 

Black quickly sprayed.

Hi,

 

Thanks Harvey!

 

First of all, sorry for the (very!) poor quality pics...

I will try to make some better tomorrow.

 

Brake calipers and the stub axle (?) were chemically burnished.

Brake calipers were "stolen" to the M19 in order to replace those supplied in the kit.

rear axle parts are prepared and drilled... too much drilled!

I had to play with the low temp solder in order to fill the hole in the lower part, then sand, but now it's ok.

Brass knobs for the dampers.

Same method than those done for the Ferrari 312F1.

They will be burnished.

Primer and paint for everybody:

Hi,

 

 

Few progress.

As usual, radiator is filled.

Better pics than those from yesterday:

Weld lines added.

It's a bit rude for now, but with primer and flat black it should be ok.

If not... I'll undo it and will make the weld lines with the iron as it was tested initially.

Dampers almost finished.

A Koni stucker was added...

Just now need a light oil wash.

More soon.

Not that happy with the weld lines I find pretty rude and out of scale...

I will decide what to do after "weathering" job on this side exhaust.
