Thanks so much mates.

I (re)started the carbon work on nose cone

I peel off the wrong MC decal, but i used is copied template for my carbon decal

This part is not linear, is a multicarbon like monocoque.
The upper part of nose is extra fine carbon like the radiator duct but with a lighter color compared to the darker radiator duct
The side (and i think the lower part) of nose cone have a bigger carbon (chequered)

The best match combo (in my mind) is the 1/32 on upper side and my chequered for side.
The bigger carbon is also present on front jaws of nose cone

I positioned the template on nose cone to diveide the future areas for different decal

1/2

I started the work on nose cone, I erased the MC wrong decal, light gray primer and 1/32 carbon decal.
The real carbon on nose cone is a color like plaster

I used the MC template to coat the nose with my carbon.

FOr side of nose cone i used my 1/12 decal

I continued anf finished the work on radiator boxes. In the ECU zon there's a bigger carbon, so i used my 1/12

I also reworked the radiator in the inside to give a more realism and I also add the vaccum tube from radiator to water canister

2/2

After many matt clear coat i started and finished the work with rivets (on ral car are spherical hex bolt). I put the rivets and xf56 color and a final black panel line

I also addes rivets and head crew inside the bathtube following the references pics. For herad screw i used PE generic set for 1/12 motogp

I also little detail the brake bias control and i also modified the fitting syestem for future connection to extra cable inside the tunnel leg

I clear gloss coated the Ayrton seat to coat the carbon, next step will be the padding in the balck area with ducktape as on real MP4/4-02

I also replaced the throttle cable, the first version is too bigger size and wrong

Thanks Malc.

I made some shot with monocoque and nose cone....but I'm not satisfied with end result: the pale gold base is too much visible.









I decrease the gold/bronze effect with another light coat of smoke, and now it's quite similar to real mocoque. The color change with different point of view and light. It changes in bronze, brown wit a littel bit green yellow...like the real mp4/4. I think to take the right way for this trouble

I finished the coat work on radiator pods with some layer of matt clear.
The carbon is quite on real car. Visibile only from very near

I made some pics with all carbon toghter (just missing the undertray which need the carbon work)

In every pic s the color change...like on real car, i'm so satisfied with end result.

Yes Malc....and i'm at 25% of this very long trip....Blink


I took the MC decal for undertray.

Mc decal set containd a template to reproduce the lower side of fornt monocoque. Mc explain to fit the firsr carbon coat, the reproduce with tamplate a styrene 0.2 layer to coat with kevlar.

This kevlar zone will connect to "U zone" on lower side of undertray


Next and last step is to take the last mc decal set, and then i think (maybe) to finish with this carbon monster
