There’s another update in the Bodywork and Markings page, showing some work under the nose fairing.
Have a look at a small update with some photos of the completed rear brake cooling intakes on the new Rear Suspension page.
There’s an update (at last!) to the Bodywork page explaining why there has been so little progress on the build, and why I’ll never build a car with flourescent paintowork again!
Have a look at the front suspension page for some photos of the brake rotors and shock absorbers, with a little added detail for the workshop too.
There’s a small update on the Bodywork page, showing the completed rear view mirrors.
Over this weekend I’ve built up some ‘props’ to use in my photographs – have a look at a small review of them here.
Have a look at Jason Ruben’s upcoming build of the MFH 787B HERE. (His Ferrari 259 GTO is well worth a view. Nice work!)
I’m getting on for a third of the way through my ‘no kit buying year’ as the deal I’ve struck to buy the MFH Sauber C9 in September. It’s in stock at HiroBoy.com, and I’ve already started building the references I’ll need. (There’s nothing in the deal that precludes getting my references ready!) To that end this book arrived yesterday, packed full of photos of just about every component of the car. I’m really looking forward to this kit! (The cover design is absolutely superb.)
Happy New Year everyone! The stats page for MFHMazda787.com show readers from all around the world, so I hope you have enjoyed / are enjoying / will enjoy the celebrations.
Also, there’s a small update to the Bodywork page, showing an electrical connector I’ve made from scratch.
I once read that an essential part of modelling is to remember that sometimes it’s better to simulate rather than replicate. To that end I’ve tried an idea to simulate black anodising on the shoulder strap anchors. Have a look on the Cockpit page.
EDIT – A correspondent has pointed out that the FIA mandated steel mountings for the seat straps, so these would probably have been painted a satin black. Thanks Duncan! (It was a good idea though…)
