I've still got loads to spray/paint, so it's taking a bit of time to do this rather than as a straight build.

It needs to be done Casp, as the original colours are quite dire :)

That's true. Mine (well Laura's really) is transparent blue and a silver grey. Very toy like. You're repainted version should look much better

After I sprayed the rocker arms, I've realised there is too much flash on them, so not filed down, next up another spray job on them !

Whilst the rocker arms are being re-sprayed, here's a pic of the valve springs etc in place, though not screwed down:

Whilst looking at other things, I looked at the head gasket, basically a piece of white card ......

It's now being sprayed in Humbrol Desert Yellow 93 (which is what a few are using for their Tiger Tanks), as I couldn't think of any other colour to use ! :oops: :oops: :)
