Great weathering on the engine and manifolds. The plug wiring looks a little thick, though. Good work.

Sweet !!!!
Glad you're detailing the engine to look less than pristine. It looks great !

Nice thing about a wash of dark paint is how it brings out all the detail.  On a big model taking time to paint bolt and screw heads, brackets, etc can be slow going.  Glad you're enjoying the progress!

Hi all well the engine is done (well as much as I can do without putting it in the car)
The next bit is the front chassis and suspension (to be honest I keep looking at the instructions and I'm tempted to box it back up and put it away) looks to be way beyond my meagre abilities, I would start somewhere else on the model and come back to this part but that may cause problems later on I've no idea whether I can start the body without causing problems with the chassis, I will see how brave I'm feeling, this may be as far as this kit goes for me, really not feeling confident at all on the next bit.

Your "britmodeler" link seems a great template for pitfalls that may come.  Have confidence and it's not a bad idea to de-stress with another subassembly, provided pieces will later still fit together.  Taking breaks is important too. Getting back to the 1:1 real world can be restoring.  We'll wait patiently in the meantime!

With so much rusting on underside, tho I'd prefer a pristine body, one with rust would seem better matched.  Of course, it could've been a restored older car with emphasis on a nice body.  Who doesn't like a nice body?!
