I have Niki's car completed and I have been working on James' car.

The kits are 1/25 so they look small but they are pretty accurate scale wise.

I have been just working on it here and there so I don't have a lot of early build pictures,

The wheels aren't attached just sitting in close proximity for a mock up.

Good stuff Mitch, the airboxes back in the day were a bit mad.

Looking good as a pair Mitch.

Very cool! At 1/25th they'd look super in a scale car show or "museum" dio.

Thanks for all the encouragement guys.

I did a little repaint of some of the fluorescent red and the white over the body work by the radiator inlets after I glued the top on the body/chassis.

Thanks guys.

My phone doesn't take very good pictures of the fluorescent red.

I started applying the decals and I am going to add some extensions to the radiator pods. This car morphed so many times during the same racing season it's difficult to find a consistent version.

Anyway, I am going to make and paint the extensions separately and then glue them on.

Thanks!

I have my scratch built extensions painted and attached. Some detailing on the engine started.
