Well, I can finally call this finished, I guess. No driver, no fuel lines or other detailing.  I really hated this kit.  Decals had some sort of flaw where no matter how long you soaked them, there was always a small spot that wouldn't release and ripped.  Also the front and rear suspensions were a bigger PITA than any other Tamiya F1 cars I've done.  After much care in trying to make the wheels all touch the ground, the attachment of the body threw all that off.

But it's done.


Thanks for your comments,
Mike

It's a tricky kit Mike, but it came out very nice.
