    This weekend is so busy for me, I haven't been able to do much at the bench at all except clean it up. I did however get metal foiling where I want it with the help of a couple of great builders over at large scale planes. They're foiling experts. Anyway, I've totally eliminated Bare Metal Foil Model Sunday 5/23/2010 except for very limited applications. The best so far has been regular and heavy duty Reynolds Wrap and Microscale foil Adhesive. There's definitely a learning curve here so if you guys want to try it out, don't be discouraged when it doesn't come out the first hundred times or so.

    The Honda RC166 was finished over the last few days, or at least I ran out of parts. The sun came out long enough today to get some bright light pictures, so here are a few. The only big change to the kit was to improve the cables. The fairing rack is bent and soldered from brass, the padding is some self adhesive elastic bandage. This is a fine kit, I'd like to see more from this era.

    Trying my hand at 1/12 scale. Golly the parts are small. This will be a Porsche 935. Tamiya Model Sunday 5/23/2010 does produce sharply detailed parts. Their kits are a joy to work with. I just wish this one had more screw together hardware. Looks like it will mostly be glue whereas the Caterham Super 7 had a lot of suspension parts mechanically attached. At least the parts fit together a lot better than the Pochers!

    That looks great Syd. Tamiya Model Sunday 5/23/2010 always did make great kits. Years ago, I did the 240 Z and the Porsche 924. I couldn't believe the detail.
