Me again.

Engine progress.

I was not that happy with the kit throttle linkage... So I decided to build new ones with machined parts from RBMotion.

It was also necessary to show a bit of interest regarding the exhaust and prepare the white metal parts of the Spaghetti:

To prime and paint them:

Other parts are just treated to be left with a natural metal finish:

I prefer soldering them instead of gluing for évident reasons:

I played a bit with the iron in order to replicate weld seams :

The engine connected to the gear box and vice versa, and install for test fit in its compartment:

Next to the small 1/20 sister :

Rear brake discs before assembly on the gear box:

... and few accessories:

Modification of the rear hubs in order to adapt machined parts:

The body is drilled in order to be riveted with MFH aluminium rivet:

The engine is... big. Almost the size of the 1/20 kit:

More soon.

I hope you enjoy this WIP.

Me again...

 

I’ve modified the throttle linkage.

The White Metal original ones were not that good, so I replaced them with machined parts.

The mesh over the stacks is now done, and I must admit it was pretty fun to form and install: I’m mot unhappy with the result.
Oils have also been applied on the heat shield as well as a portion of aluminium tape on both external sides.
I really like the view of the trumpets through the mesh.

The rear stab bar has been remade with 1mm ø brass, which was later chemically burnished.

Now working on the connection rods.
One started compared to raw white metal original part.
