I got this kit last year and the itch to start playing with it finally got the best of me.  It will build any one of 14 different cars from the 1972 season.

The first thing the instructions call for is building the chassis.  I got the pieces out and cleaned them up, drilled holes and polished the white metal.  I temporarily dry-fit the pieces and held them together with rubber bands.

Sorry Shay, I'm leaning towards the Ickx/Regazonni version.  I like both drivers and the accent color is yellow.


I put the wheels together, and tried the tires.

I also started the engine.

Great start! These MFH kits are something else - looking forward to seeing the bazillion little details coalesce into one truly cool build.

Chuck, sorry for the delayed reply.  I haven't been to the bench in two months, and missed your post.  Working with white metal isn't all that difficult.  The pieces don't necessarily fit together and usually need a little tweaking to fit properly.  But being white metal, you can bend/change their shape.  It's sort of like scratch building were you need to 'fit' each part.  Also, most WM kits don't have any of the holes drilled for locating pins.  So a set of drills is a must.  I usually use either CA for adhesive, or epoxy for a joint that would need more strength.  WM also needs a little more prep.  I use a brass brush to scuff/clean the parts, then go after any seams with a file or sanding sticks.  For a more polished surface, I have been using #000 and #0000 steel wool.

Don't worry over your lack of knowledge regarding these kits. If anything, ask as many questions as you want. I'm more than happy to pass on what I've learned while building these kits. For a price comparison, look at a Tamiya Porsche 935 in 1/12th. Kits are in the $150 range and the SMS set was sold at $500. The SMS kit was all of the turned metal and p/e needed to super detail that kit. So when you consider what you get in a MFH kit, it's really not that bad. It's just that you pay it all at once rather than to two or three vendors. Plus most of the MFH kits are subjects no one else does. Like this car.
