That is a great looking paint job, KP. With it being a car paint are you using something like Halfords rattle cans?

Hi all well I've detailed up the battery and added the upgrade kit decal (the smaller decal is the one that came with the kit.
Image
I must say I am surprised with a kit of this size and price of the huge amount of missing detail, mostly seems to be wiring which surely wouldn't be that expensive to add to the kit.

Wow, this looks like a build of the full-size! I have to agree, given the scale size and especially the price of this kit, Pocher have been a bit tight in not supplying material to assist the modeller in reproducing all of the wiring and what have you.

Hi all started on the fuel system added the butterfly valves made from aluminium foil onto which I put brass leaf.
Image
Image
Then I cut it to fit
Image
Then cut a piece of sprue then halved it.
Image
Covered it with the brass leaf then drilled two holes and added a couple of screws

Hi all bit more added here (this is just the supplied detail loads of wiring and connectors still to add) ( I really don't know why they don't supply varying thicknesses of wire surly it wouldn't add more than a tenner to the cost of the kit)
Image
Image
As I said loads more detail to add but couldn't resist trying it on the engine.
Image
Image
Image
Also got the tyres on the wheels (Man they are heavy, but great quality)

Those wheels are some size, KP, in fact this model will almost be big enough to sit on :grin: - I bet it's not much smaller than those mini-moto bikes that were all the rage a few years ago!

Excellent - you can't get a replica much closer in accuracy to the full-size than that, KP.

Thanks mate glad you like it. here is the next bit the exhaust, let me tell you what a horrendous fit, had to use copious amounts of filler first really disappointing bit of the kit, Paul Koo suggests leaving the screws loose then adjusting the gaps by gradually tightening them whilst adjusting the gaps, well the best I managed to reduce it to was 2 mill for a kit of this price I think that is really bad.
Anyway here it is with all the gaps filled.

Not happy with the silver shields they look very plasticky (I know they actually are) will have to try and change that, I'm thinking of trying foil over them)
