Another one joins the pile...

I'm going to start this one shortly as I'm waiting for the silver paint on the giant 1/8 Porsche to harden off before applying any decals.
Then it will wait another week before getting a clear coat.
THEN another good few days before I can resume building it...
Hopefully you get the idea. This one is a time-filler.

It will be finished in the Rob Walker team colours.
On we go.BigGrin

Ok - I've made a start.

Interior tub sprayed with Halfords chrome - it gives a nice satin almost ally finish.
Seat trimmed with red leather.
Main tub assembled.
Some paint next methinks...

Funnily enough, after building a string of 1/8 kits, this seems really tiny.LOL

The body has had paint applied now and the dash has been fitted with a bit of added wiring.
Front area has also been assembled after painting and the brake pipes etc added according to reference of a Rob Walker car.

A fun, easy project while the giant Porsche paint really hardens off.
LOL LOL LOL
