      One more just for fun........man I got the White to lay down nicely. For anyone that has not read it, there is a great article on painting with Tamiya Laquers on the Tamiya USA site. Read it if you use Tamiya paint!

          I got the splitter, side skirts and diffuser painted. Tamiya Semi-Gloss Black is a wicked finish!!!

          I have a few touch ups to do but I am happy so far. Now onto the window trim..........I want to get the windows in today.

            I got a lot done today. I will install the windows tomorrow. Still a few touch ups to do but I think it is looking pretty good.





            and on a side note, a Sharpie is much easier to get window trim done than painting it!

              Well, since a little ice storm scared everyone off today there was no race....so work continued.

              I still have the rear grill and lights, front grills to cover the openings, gas fillers, tow hooks, exhaust, and some stuff I am surely forgetting right now.

              Far from perfect but pretty good for a Race Car! It's funny what shows up in pictures that you don't see just looking at it.

                It actually drove around the track today. Just tow hooks and mirrors to go.

                    Very nice Could you share how you mounted the body to the chassis?

                      I will post some pics next time I have the body off it. Basically I just weld in some styrene blocks to the inside of the body. Then I mark and drill the blocks for the body mount screws.

                      Essentially the same way standard Scaleauto body mounts.

                      I will get some pics of it today.

                        ok, slotbutton.........here ya go. Use Tenax or something of the sort to "weld" the blocks in. Make sure the are perfectly perpendicular to the chassis. They also have to be all level if you want the body to mount up flat and true.



                        Hope that helps.

                          I got the mirrors on the F40 yesterday. Just a nice shot of my 1/24th's.

                            Nice group of cars there I have an F40 I may turn into a slotcar. Was there a reason you didn't highlight the F40 on the left side?

                              They just landed where I set them down. I will get some close up shots of the F40 when I get the tow hooks on.

                                Black F40




                                No black F40
