I can't see it properly, eyes watering and green of envy...

the floor pan is bugging me with all those push rod marks :( but I'm not that keen on the decal set for it. any tips as to what can be done would be gratefully received :)
Also the seat needs some attention

Take a look at this forum for some great super detailing ideas. This is a 1/20 MP4/4
and the level of detail is amazing. Cheers & Beers.

A great technique for getting the worn tyre affect. Sand the tyres with wet 'n' dry
but collect the rubber afterwards. Spray the tyre with hairspray and run it through
the rubber then seal with flat acrylic clear.

Hi Rick thanks for asking
I was looking at the Honda yesterday and thinking about what needs doing to complete the car. My son wants my model shelf in our glass cabinet for his lego so another home is needed :think:
I missed out on a nose section for my spare body panels the other day on :techie-ebay: but I'm hoping the seller resists the items as they didn't sell. I will also need a rear wing set up to go with it. If I can get the remaining parts a Prost alternative wood be nice. I think you can still order separate issues from DeAgostini
Love the tyre mod you've done, great idea :clap:

Hi John
the tyres above belong to heyes57, they look great but mine are finely sanded
still under construction, don't have the space at the moment.

Hi john
you won't be disappointed, its a fantastic kit and model. Mine is in a glass case waiting for the final touches but I just haven't had the time or space to finish it. My spare room has now been taken over by Lego so I'm going to have to find another corner to work from :roll:

Casper,

Where did you get the ABS glue from and what brand did you use?
