Back to our regularly scheduled programming... :)

Started working on the Competition Engineering rear ladder bar set up.
Its not perfect but it looks similar to the real deal.

You're doing some awesome work with this one, Mitch. The body is turning out great. I remember when you built the 1:1 on eScale

Thanks Paul.

I think I have most of the major scratch building complete. Now its just finishing up sanding and shaping and then I can start building and painting.

The roll cage is built and it is snapped into the mounting plates. It will be removed for painting. I still need to make the door panels, modify the dash and make the inside part of the C pillars.

Of course more filling, sanding priming on the body. Very close though.

Missed all of this Mitch.... sorry!.

This is a great project Mitch and I'm sure it's going to turn out just like the 1:1.

Great stuff.

Floors are almost done.

I took a break from them last night and worked on the model a little.

Wow Mitch this is a super ambitious project, I think one of your most ambitious. Some really great work, I am impressed. Sorry I missed all your updates. Keep at it, this is going to be killer.

I have started the painting and assembling process.

I worked on the seat and seat belts the last two nights.
I used the Scale Motor Sports PE kit and it come with the belt material.
My buckle on the real car was different but I am still happy with the look of the harness in general.
I used one of my custom decals to make the RJS label for the left shoulder harness.
I'm using some model railroad detail parts for the nuts and washers hardware.

Thanks guys, I am adding quite a bit more detail to this one than I usually do.

I made the fuse block and the master cut off relay and got them painted and installed. I also finished up the dash. Made gauge faces and toggle switches and put PE rings around the gauges and PE washers on the toggle switches. Used wire insulation for roll bar padding.

They are company that makes model railroad kits. Here is a picture of the packages.

I worked on the engine and wheels and tires last night.

Pictures help me see I have some touch up to do on both sets of assemblies...
