This is the oddest wiring I have ever done I think.

From plugs into distribution tube and from the back of the dizzy to the distribution tube!! LOL

They have to come out for painting and when they go back, I'll glue in the plug ends first and get the plug boots nice and straight.

Also I now have the body and fenders painted:

Tres elegant!  The shine is remarkable.  Wiring was like that, just running the wires under a cover.  In a way it also kept correct wires to plugs easier to manage.

Burgundy & open rear wheels are my thoughts. Looking good whatever way you go Al.

I couldn't resist rodding this if it were mine. A V12 or V16 under that l-o-n-g bonnet.

Thanks Denis.

To-day, I had to take my wife to the city for a bone density scan, so since I didn't have any Tan paint for the interior (I'm having to wing that as I can't find any colour photos of the original) I took the opportunity to visit the last remaining model shop in the area, a further ten miles away.

Tamiya don't do a Tan paint and the only suitable colours they had, were in the Citadel range. However, me and water based paints never seem to get on, just can't get the mix right. One minute it's too thick and one drop of water later, it's seems as thin as water and runs everywhere!!!

Anyway, the guy suggested using Tamiya Thinners for Acrylic.

Well, it worked better than water but when I'd finished, there was a lot of undisolved pigment in the bottom of the medice mixing cup!!

What do you guys think, this colour or the darker one next to it?

It'd look good if you stippled some of the darker base colour over the light ochre.
Would give the effect of texture.

Nice clean job on the car body

A bit bright. Perhaps a wash would tone it down and accent the details.

Thanks guys.

I agree it does look a tad bright outside the shell but in real life, when in the shell it looks just right to me.

The chassis is finished and mocked up with the engine and body. The fit is looking good.

That looks really good Al, it's all going together brilliantly.

Plus if you ever decide to do one of those G4's ... you'll have no trouble with the engine build, it's just a tad smaller
