Always liked the look of pre-turbo headers, except the 180 degree spagetti.

Brilliant. Your engine and the real engine are amazing pieces of work. What are you using for your metal finishes Ken ?

Hi all back off hols so now eager to get back at this.

Whilst on hols I won a revell ex protar F1 for a really great price (yes the box is really battered but the bits all look good) I've seen one on there with a starting bid of 197 quid I paid no where near that.

Can anyone guess what it is.
Sorry Colin if you check the engines, engines, engines topic I say all the finishes I use (or will have done by the time it's finished)

Hi all more progress, even with coating these old decals with clear I can't tell you how many pieces they break into when applied, very slow progress.
