Hi all here is the next instalment.
I got fed up with taking longer to find a part on the many sprues in this kit by looking for the small tab on each sprue with the letter I needed (I'm surprised I didn't think of this the 2 times I built the Traction Avant kit) I've written a large letter on each bag for which sprue is in it.
Image
I've made the starter motor terminal from a piece of whittled down sprue
Image
Added the oil cooler with the added layers and the banjo connector using Paul Coos detail adding info
Image
And the finished starter motor.
Image
Bit more weathering on the engine.
Image
All in all I'm quite pleased with the progress (even if it's glacially slooooow)

Slow and steady is the way to go with the build Ken. You should relish every moment of this amazing kit. The engine block looks absolutely fab! :o)b

HI ALL I made this connector with some sprue, Paul Coos CD really is a mine of information (loads of reference pics of the actual parts, that's where I got the seams on the exhaust from)
Image
This part is like a little kit in its own right

Hi all i wanted to try and show you all just how big this is so, this is a 1/24 lorry engine.
Image
Now put it on the engine and you get an idea of just how huge this is.
Image

Nice work so far. I always thought these pocher kits were pre painted. You'll have to get one of their Lamborghini kits next...

Thanks. They are pre painted but I didn't want red hence the respray (I doubt my missus will let me buy another poacher kit)

Well we've been away for the weekend at our friends caravan and I came back to a bit of a disaster
Image
All the plastic parts are fine I couldn't work out what had gone wrong but now I have
Image
No primer, I assume the plastic parts were primed hence they are ok.
I've removed the paint
Image
(Another chance to see how big this is its nearly as long as my thigh)
Now I just have to 're prime it, I'm just wondering if I have enough of the blue left this thing is so big it took nearly a whole can to paint it(admittedly I did both sides of all the parts as I was not sure if the back of any parts could be seen) hopefully no more problems will occur.
