been quite while since i did an open wheel race car, F1 is a sport that really does not appeal but i can appreciate the engineering involved
might be a week or so before i make any significant progress, kinda busy and occupied with something else at the mo
Just a point to note on this model - I started one a few months ago and I thought it was going really well until I was at the latter stages. I had assembled the body, filling in the seams and painting the body as I went; including fitting the engine air intake. I fitted the body and the engine/rear suspension to the floor; then I assembled the engine cover. But when I fitted the engine cover onto the model, I had a very large gap between the engine air intake and the engine cover. I went back to see if I had done anything wrong - but could find nothing. Then I went through the web looking for others who had built this particular model. Every site I found with photos of a completed version of this model showed pictures with the engine cover off! I then found another modeller who had a similar problem - a very large gap. I suggest you do dry fitting to find out how to do it right.
made significant progress with the Fezzer, must admit im just not into this kit at all and look forward to finishing it just so i can get onto something else....think its cos its not gone as planned and its not a subject that interests me much
just too much going wrong with the ferrari, its just not up to the standard i expect of myself so its gone back into a box
normal service will be resumed shortly
Three gaps are visible. In the first photo below, there is a gap along the side of the bodywork under the FedEx decal and at the tail end of the engine cover, there should not be a gap between the engine cover and the little red part on top of the final drive unit.
In this photo, the gap between the rear of the air intake and the engine cover, just above the "oro" part of the sponsor's name is clearly visible. It seems to me that what should be unnecessary major surgery is actually required. Over to the "Ideas" department.
