I haven't sat at the bench for any length of time (for various reasons) and havent completed a build for over twenty months now. However the time now feels right to pick up the scalpel and airbrush again and since I'm off to the British GP at Silverstone in less than two weeks, I have chosen this as my 'return to the bench' build.

That looks to be a beauty in the making - I'm not big into Formula race cars but I did build one of those six wheel Elf racers as a youth so I'm biased towards anything Elf, lol. Glad to see you back at the bench and looking forward to watching this come together.

Since I started this build, I went out and bought my partner and I a motor home. It's a good few years old and needs a bit of a 'refresh/updating'.... which is what I have been doing ever since.

However, today I made some time to get the paint laid. It's Zero Paints Jordan blue and is the closest match I have on hand. Just two coats of clear as I feel it looks 'period correct for glossiness.

Paint is looking great, Al.

I agree - let's see that new project.

I echo the others - the paint looks great in both colour and finish.

How's this coming along? Still struggling with the front suspension?

Sorry guys, this one is going back in the box for several reasons but principally 'cos I'm waiting for new glasses and since I was last building regularly, the arthritis in my hands has deteriorated some. So until it's sorted I need 'bigger parts'. Oh boy the joys of being an old geezer. LOL

Sorry to hear that, Al. We're already missing your great builds. Yes, old age is a PITA.
