I love your work, so neat and tidy.

 

Any chance you could share your technique for gluing the small parts to the already painted surface's?

Hi,

 

Thanks so much for your kind comments Mates!

 

Nothing special about the glue, I just take care when using CA!

 

Work on the rhodoïd windshield of the M7A:

- cut,

- drilled,

- Black gasket painted

and a color test

Hi,

 

Small progress on Bruce's M7.

I spent a loooong time to find a solution and to succeed in modifying the rear tie rods: I didn't like that much the original ones.

I also added the brake lines .

As the build is on a good way, I took some pictures of the M7 next to the 312 and the body of a Lotus 49...

Hi,

 

Sooooooo much time since the last post :oops: 

 

 

 

First, coolant pipe. The one which is running under the right side of the Body.

Masked, primed, painted and quickly clear coated with brush and Klear.

Installed and connected to the water pump on the engine side and to the radiator on the front end.

Same thing on the left side.

The intake trumpets are made of brass and need another color.

As usual with that kind of part, I prefer a chemical traetment.

So, the mesh is burnished with a blackening agent and slightly dry brushed with Metal Cote Polished Steel.

Then a thin aluminum band is installed around the base of the mesh.

An example on the MFH Lotus 49 DFV intakes, then on the AWESOME Widia velocity stacks of the McLaren.

Fuel pump, expansion bowl (?...) and wing mounts installed.

The engine mounting plates are rebuilt and installed with RBMotion hardware.

 

Time for the Papaya to have wheels.

Central seam line is sanded.

The blue ring is a mix of US Navy paints from Model Master Acryl.

Tires are airbrushed thru the MFH tool.
