The front wing is completed and also the first front tyre.

I'll wait all tyres to sand them to have more racing look

First doubt is this.

When I'll apply the Marlboro decals on front wing....i'll attach this on complete front wing or i must take only the nose and clear coat only it?

Or i must clear coat all the front wing?

The decals that i purchased on Autograph is these

Another technical question.

I've saw in some building that the front diSk is drilled to open the holes. Another solution is to color the fake holes.
I bought the Tamiya panel line accent color black. How is thwe right metod to paint these holes?
Sorry for these elementary question, but i'm new in modelling world

You can use a small brush to fill the holes with paint wiping any excess around the edges off with a cloth. You may need to do this several times as the cloth can draw out the paint in the holes sometimes.

Thanks to everybody for tips.

I decided to bought an hand driller. I'll wait all 4 disc set and i'll take courage to drill them.

Many users in some forum tell me that drill holes is better than painting for achieve best details on model.

Thanks to everybody for support.

This is a special section with special users for this grat model!

I'm very happy for the second package that is arrive last week.

So i continued with assembly:

Brake caliper

Cluth

Second valve cover

I made my first washing for clutch assembly. I think is not so bad for my first attempt.

Finally i started to assembly the airbox and alternator. I think to color the alternator in metallic alluminum to give it more realism.

Nicely done, one tip try to store the tyres separately as the logo's are easily damaged by accidental movements.

Pack 4

- Assembly the other hub with complete disc brake

- Assembly the electronic valve and battery

- Taping the radiator duct

An italian mate is now working on this project (an awesome work). He's bought the hiro book. In the future i would see the picture of the valves and battery to detail with color.
