I used the kit hoses but I do have some braided hose so may well change those.

Here is where I am now.

I must say I'm really enjoying this kit (although I thought it would take longer to build )

The seat is just placed there not glued loads to do to that yet.

Hi all bought a mirror to mount the 934 on will have the car on axle stands with the engine alongside it, not sure whether to have the tyres stacked or arranged around it, also thinking of putting 2 walls up around it with pictures of the car racing on them I'm going for a look of it being in a museum display.
Any suggestions welcome.

Nice work Ken. Love You could have some display lights in the 4 corners, lighting it from above as they do in car shows.

Hi all made a start on the axle stands but had a major set back on the bodywork looked great till I clear coated it and it went matt (strange as I sprayed the bonnet and wings exactly the same way and they are nice and glossy)

I decanted the laquer out of the can and sprayed it through my air brush, the only difference being I sprayed the body this morning (it rained over night) I sprayed the bonnet and wings during the day in the sun (i wonder if it was damp and it has bloomed)

Ken - get a Halfords clear acrylic rattle can. About £8.
It goes over literally anything - harmlessly.

2-3 light coats - 8-10 mins between but make sure the body is indoors as it's drying each time.
In this weather, it WILL fog if it dries outside or in a shed/garage.

Here's my current BMW shell with 3-4 coats...

(BTW - all looking really good so far)

Edit: Sorry Ken, didn't mean to not give you the credit you deserve. I just now noticed while re-browsing this thread that I rushed too quickly and mis-attributed the build to Roy.

Hi all I decided to add the brake pipes to this kit and was going to use wire but then realised that the working steering and suspension wouldn't work so I added the bracket to  the suspension leg and then added a flexible hose from that. Should I mention this was my third attempt(no ones perfect)

Ok so I need something on the tool chest but most of the car is built so not much choice but the rear suspension, problem is the spring plate is moulded integral with the suspension arm (on the car if you were working on the suspension arm you would have left the spring plate on ) so I cut it off and made a new spring plate separate to put on the car (still got to make the casters for the tool chest)
