I left one end "dangling" (actually glued it to the block). One end is on the header cover, the remaining end goes into the intake holder. I turned the pipe round, as it seems to be slightly different in reality (see here for example: http://image.europeancarweb.com/f/firstlook/epcp_1108_lamborghini_aventador_lp_700_4/36945171/epcp-1108-11-o+lamborghini-aventador-lp-700-4+engine-bay.jpg). Seems to me that the holder bars for the intake aren't there always.

Hello AIRB,
The kind of paint used metallic silver by the basic color. The black paint of an engine head cover is special.
It becomes rough textures.
It is often used for the roof of the train of a railroad model.

Very nice work there on the suspension. Looks amazing. I'll have to do mine like that whenever I acquire the funds to actually purchase a kit.

As for the GTR, it's a great looking model. Though I wish Eaglemoss would open up sales to us America customers (or I could find someone will to buy and send me parts for it overseas gringrin). The lighting system and roll down windows are simply fascinating.

Hi Yochanpapa.

I too found it difficult to tighten screws.
I have just purchased a tap and die set to thread the holes correctly.

Can you advise what size you used to make the holes?

Also, how did you paint the lines and lettering on the air intake?
I am having great difficulty with this and have made several unsuccessful attempts. 1confused1

I have found it quite confusing in several areas, after screwing together several pieces only to find I have to undo them all because another piece needs to be fitted first.
Several pages should have a sequence, 1,2,3 for correct order of construction

Thank you for your efforts and photos, they are much appreciated. 1nworthy1

Flyboy.... Some people try a technique..where you paint the letters "Lamborghini" first....let the paint dry....clear coat it......let it dry...... Once dry....you paint over the entire airbox black.....then gently sand (fine grit sandpaper) the black paint off to reveal the silver lettering.....then clear coat the entire part once again.......the first clear coat should protect the silver lettering from your light sanding.... 1. first paint part silver no masking needed.. 2. clear coat 3. paint entire part black including letters 4. lighty sand black off letters to reveal the silver lettering.....You might be able to wipe off the black using q-tips and some paint thinner instead 5. final matt clear.

Thanks for that superfly.
I've decided to try a simple "easily reversible"(haha) way first
I'm getting some gilding sheets (gold, silver and copper and some size)
I'll try covering the raised sections with that, leave a few days to dry off fully and then hit with a light matt or semi gloss clear.
Might try it on something unimportant first (maybe some sprue pieces or flat pieces)
Don't think that will be a problem, but the spray clear may!!

Anyone tried this or have any info?

could you give more detail for the M2.6 tap (were to buy ?) and it appears that you used metric bolts not screws
where these bolts also M2.6, if they were, please post a supplier

Flyboy47
02-02-14, 05:57 PM
hefrancis1.
Hi, Of the 14 different ones in the kit 10 are bolts and 4 are tapping screws.
The screws would be used in the plastic parts and the bolts in the metal.
Unfortunately Hornby didn't see fit to tap any of the holes they drilled for the bolts.

Type in "mini tap and die kit" to your search engine and there are any number of, what appears to be the same kit, available on ebay, amazon and other suppliers.
Probably around $50-60 for a 30piece kit. You need METRIC.
I have also just realised that 2 of the bolt sizes in the kit are 2.6mm and 3mm, which aren't in the kit I purchased.
Oh well.....More shopping!!!!
As yochanpapa pointed out to me, which I had missed, on page 1 of the manual the dimensions of all the screws and bolts are specified. They mention their M size but there is no mention of the THREAD PITCH.
I am uncertain as to what the pitch might be as they look to be different. maybe there is a standard for a certain size bolt.

ANYONE??????? Engineering experts????
Cheers
Pete

hefrancis1
02-02-14, 09:33 PM
THANKS for that info, i guess i never seen a bolt with a Phillips screw head

it seems that the common pitch for 3M bolt is 0.5, that would be the tap pitch needed if you use 3M bolts

have not be able to find the M2.6 bolts nor the 2.6 tap

Flyboy47
02-02-14, 09:47 PM
Yeah...not sure about that 2.6 one.
maybe the 2.5 will work ok.... point 25 of a mm on each side is very small.
I don't know if the tolerances are that tight.

Sorry if we hijacked your thread a bit yochinpapa

Once again, for the lettering and the lines on the air intake, there is a trick that will do the job perfectly in 2 min (even less). Get yourself a paint marker in silver color. Here in Germany, I can recommend the ones from Edding (The 751, for example).

Do not take the fine ones, as you will basically use your pen like a flat brush, perpendicular to the part surface: gently brush the letter and the lines with the tip, and voila.

I'm not sure if M 2.6 exists. 2.5 for sure...I may be wrong, but I believe that there are M 2, M 2.5 and M 3. Probably Google will know for sure!

If you take a look to real pictures, you will see that the original paint is not that shiny like chrome.

Might be the case... As most of the engine is built out of aluminium alloy, it might fit with the "polished alu" color :)

An assembly of a steering wheel. I used not water dacal but the metallic logo dacal.
The center of an air back module is sticking dacal, after painting flat black.

Attachment of small water dacal was the most difficult work.
A left-hand side switch is sticking dacal, after painting flat black.
It is because white dacal cannot be clearly seen.
The form of an air bag unit is corrected.

I believe the stitching is on the inside of the steering wheel... So using the backside of a No#11 blade...you can scrape XXXXXXXX pattern into the steering wheel....then fill in "stitches" with paint...just like the seats. Tedious..... yes.. respect from fellow modellers.......priceless........

Also the perforated leather wraps around the steering wheel...If you lose the detail from sanding the seamline...you can add the detail back on ..using a rivet wheel...or a pointed tool. Another option is to mask these areas and spray textured paint...to give the steering wheel "suede" accents instead of the perforated leather.

I customized the steering, when Nissan GTR was assembled.
It is writing freehand using the thin brush.
It worries about whether the steering of Aventador customizes.
It is because it is very difficult to often write by my hand.

Ton
02-12-14, 03:51 AM
Yochanpapa did a great job with a steady hand on the GTR. But IMO sometimes the quality of a model is better of without extreme detailing than with extreme detailing. You simply cannot reproduce a 0,5 cm in 1:8 so you always have to compromise between reality and quality. 1gramps11gramps1

I agree with Ton. Sometimes less is more, especially working with leather. Even the finest goatskin can't be matched to complex curves and plastic parts prepared with care and a skilled paintjob can look more realistic than real leather. Just my 2 cents.

Cheers

To make fine stiches, you can also use what is called "pinstripping tape". Here is EU, there is a brand called "Finesse" which produces a large set of width and lines. It basically works like masking tape, except that it has already pre-cutted lines "in" the tape.

I have ordered the F-28 (double lines of 1/32"), and I will try to make the orange stiches on the central console + doors using it.
If it is working well, I will post some pictures :)

Yes its a Rivet Wheel....used mainly on scale model planes....though they are more like tiny dots..I think is closer to scale....it would work on the dash and center console....a sewing needle in a pin-vise for the tighter areas.

Sorry, I don't quite understand this and I hope you can explain more.
Am I to understand that the 2 copper strips are the positive and negative feed of power to the EL sheet. and the EL sheet is cut to fit the daylights and then put under the Pocher "daylight" parts.

I see you added glassfibre to the daylights and I assume you use a LED to light them or is there more work involved?

Are you testing 2 different methods of lighting the daylights a) via EL sheet or b) via glass fibre + LED

manufacturer of the spray is Asahipen.
The shop is in Tokyo, Japan, Harajuku.
The foreign countries do not know whether they sell it by mail order.
Possibly it may become the discontinuance of making.

There is much time when a lot of these products can cut an article because they do not sell.
However, the feel of a material of the painting is splendid.

Has anyone else had any trouble with that, and if so, and suggestions on how to best mount the doors?

Thanks!
