I'ma bit late coming to this one, I agree it is one of the best looking race cars - JPS livery always looked cool.

The build is coming along nicely, one to be proud of.

I have to say I am so far, so thank you. The engine/gearbox stuff is the most challenging because it's bits on bits on bits. If one isn't careful, just the thickness of excess paint or glue can throw the overall dimensions out by millimetres, so eventually you end up with a canopy which doesn't fit, or wheels which are askew or off camber. It's not so much fiddly as requiring a very high level of conscientiousness, even on bits which won't be visible.

Stoppy thing assemblies on. I've only taken a photo because they took bloody ages and get sodding covered by wheels!

Back end complete ready for wingage.
