Thanks for the very kind words guys, I really appreciate your posts!!

Kris, both wheels were painted yesterday morning. The first one seen earlier was chipped about 30mins after they were painted.

Here is the second one that I just finished chipping 5 mins ago.



I gave this second one a quick light brushing with clean water to re-soften the paint slightly prior to chipping.

An hour in 'the shop' and a couple of Coronas later and she's firing on all four cylinders....



Almost time to put this baby together and then I can add the other details...

Sweet! Paint chipping looks great and "yowza!" on the plug wires.

Cheers,

The leads were individualy measured and pre-formed from black beading wire. I'll probably use some more of it in various thicknesses for further wiring and piping around the engine, also some control rods... maybe.

Thanks Brian and Wes,

yep Wes an they were slippery little suckers too!! luckily I only lost one due to a "tweezer flick"

Started making some of the extra details and also made a new blade for a broken fan I had from another kit.



After that I started making and installing the wiring.



Next will be gluing the two main assemblies together and then I can start adding the details I just made.
