With 60 holes to drill it was worth getting out. The collet's shaft unfortunately appears to be metric rather than the required 1/4 inch so a bit of masking tape was required to reduce wobble

That is a really good idea with the drill. I have been thinking for some time about finding a suitable small drill for modelling - you may have given me an idea.

Nice to see that others also manage to put new parts into the wrong places first time round..... very re-assuring!

Thanks for the comments. Post extension work has taken up most of my holiday spare time, but I still intend to finish the Surtees for Huddersfield. One on the outstanding jobs is to paint the driver 'Jochen Mass'. I had hoped to make of mould from the parts for my other 1/32 race cars but I don't have the time or materials. So let's get on with him. He's been cleaned up.

but his helmet needs some mods, firstly the back is rather undercut and he needs a peak to his visor, both of which need scratch building.

Good to see the F-1 build back on the go, James and I'm looking forward to seeing 'Jochen' develop!

Twiddling with Jochen last night but nothing to show yet. Found this very useful reference though as almost all contempory photos show him driving from a distance so only the helmet is visible. Dark blue overall will make a nice contrast.
