Good progress Dave, really shaping up.

Awesome work! The engine looks fantastic, the chassis paint is very bright and looking forward to seeing the results of the modding. Lancia Stratos - Page 3 1705482731

Thanks all. Back to the bench for a bit.
I've made a start with the front suspension and put the beginnings of some weathering on for now.

I've decided to go with the kit springs for the front as they'll not really be seen when finished. I think they turned out ok.

A little bit more for today. Now Things are in the right place I can start painting and weathering properly. These parts are a really vague fit. I love it.

If you like the vague fit, you should try some of the 60's amt and MPC stuff I like! lol

Coming along very well, they are difficult kits.

What kind of glue are you using on the painted parts?

I got some non fogging superglue, but I haven't used it yet.

Looking good Dave, very nice work on the kit springs with the black out and red edging.

Thanks fellows. I use standard superglue gel. My contact points are actually scraped of paint for a better bond.

I assume the gel doesn't fog like liquid superglue?

I have had gel CA fog as well. If you clear it it won't fog.

You mean if you clear it afterwards? You can't do it beforehand..

Yes after. It is the fumes or off gassing that cause the fogging.

Yes the gel will fog as with any CA glue but not if you use it carefully and sparingly. I apply it with a toothpick so as not to use too much. Needless to say I never use it around clear parts as thats just asking for trouble. I also try not to use it around bodywork.

Bob Smith Industries Super Gold+ would be worth a try, It's non fogging.

Angelo uses it a lot.

As I said, I haven't used it yet though.

Great work on the suspension and undercarriage! The springs look fine given that they'll be mostly obscured by the wheels. And the subtle weathering around the front wheel tubs is fantastic. (I'm taking notes, hope you don't mind)

Thanks to you all.
I've nailed the engine down and got one set of headers put on and a test fit for the shocks to see if it lines up with the drive shaft (It's about 1mm out).

1 mm in those Enthusiast kits can throw the whole thing out of kilter I'd imagine?

That engine looks fabulous.

The engine looks great in the frame! Hope the shock alignment issue works out easily and smoothly.

I found my glasses and the wear and tear on the chassis from stones and gravel is very subtle.

Most excellent.

Rusted up the headers and started with some plumbing.

Made a little platform for the battery to sit on and made an oil cooler thingy.

Scratched an expansion tank and all the various pipes.

Onward.

That's fantastic work.

You're leading me back into the game now, not that I can to that detail though.
