detail up started with air intake manifold. i made holes on top


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/143.jpg


i put some metal electric plugs instead

(i've found out later that those plugs were nothing electical but just holding screws for cables)
















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/144.jpg






http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/145.jpg


after painted with engine color, i attached small hex nuts btw manifolds and applied chrome tape-> sand it lightly with fine sandpaper to make it look like stainless steel fuel rail


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/146.jpg




http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/147.jpg


i made fuel-injectors with duct spring and insulated wires


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/148.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/150.jpg


with the engine part . bending thin wires in similar shape was not easy at all

this build was done about 2months ago. now i've changed the material of feul injectors and the position of cable

i'll update changed pics soongringrin

i dont know what it is called... but i made it with plastic rod and metal part

in the small picture, the left one is the original part.. (sorry for rough pic..my phone is not good at close up photos)

rear sub frame was painted with tamiya's metallic grey..




















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/176.jpg

double wishbones were made of white metal parts... painted semi gloss black


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/177.jpg

i was thinking of changing rear axles to metal rod... but the original parts look fine to me

so, i just painted them by the manual.




















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/178.jpg

hobbydesign's brake disk set..


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/179.jpg

comparing the original part with nice shiny p/e parts





















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/180.jpg

painted with gunmetal and matt coating..






















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/181.jpg

i was looking for disks and found this pic... brake caliper looks different from supplied part


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/182.jpg

of course THE tamiya provided nice detailed calipers... but


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/183.jpg

i cut some out.. and left some for brake pads on each side

cuzing
03-27-14, 07:39 AM
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/184.jpg

see those things inside red circles? they are caliper mounting bolts..

and how is the caliper supposed to be mounted on that position??

i thought i assembled wrong but..


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/185.jpg

if you look carefully... even the manual shows the mounting bolts in the front.

it's quite disappointing that $300 premium kit has this kind of flaw..


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/186.jpg

so i cut the caliper out without thinking how to put it back on... http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/2.png


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/187.jpg

yes.. this is how it is supposed to be...


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/188.jpg

then i started trying to make calipers more realistic.. using side of p/e sheet, i made caliper springs..


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/189.jpg

90% satisfied.. but need more adjustment


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/190.jpg


http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/191.jpg

connection pipe was made with metal pipes, plastic rod and brass line




















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/192.jpg

painted and applied decal...

cuzing
03-27-14, 07:41 AM
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/193.jpg

painted pads and put mounting bolts on


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/194.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/195.jpg

the spring has some tension.. so no glue is needed


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/196.jpg

i made valves by the side.. they don't look like real ones but i'll just let it be that way
















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/197.jpg

caliper is completed.. http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/2.png


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/198.jpg

hand brake caliper is done as well.

those pins at the bottom are for rear caliper.. and i cut out part that holds upper wishbone because..


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/199.jpg

looks no good..


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/200.jpg


http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/201.jpg

the door problem took me so long..

here's the 1/12 enzo's most disappointing problem...


http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/212.jpg

it is tamiya's engineering problem.. the upper part of the door is too thin to make the right shape

i tried kind of everything i could.. reassembling.. regluing..

this thing had to be done so i can work on the monocoque.. it was pain in the ass!












http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/213.jpg

holding doors with metal rod, i could finally make it look normal..

i took doors and panels away now to work on the monocoque..so i'll explain it later with detailed photos..

cuzing
03-27-14, 07:47 AM
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/214.jpg

the biggest part of the kit, filling up some seam lines and some modification..

i am thinking of full-carbon monocoque but i'm not sure i'm capable of it


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/215.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/216.jpg

holder from hobbydesign's p/e set - 7 pieces of part on each holder


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/217.jpg

there's strange hole on each side for door fix but i filled it up with magnet and covered with glue

that small magnet does not have enough force for holding door so i will add bigger magnets later


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/218.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/219.jpg

after priming, i found some flaws and marked 'em for correction later

it is time consuming and boring work but i think those small works make the model with better quality


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/220.jpg

brake booster.. cut the part out for painting


















http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/221.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/222.jpg

thank you guys :) just small update


this is the part i built earlier..

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/244.jpg

i found a real car pic(below) from google and found out the cable should have been lowered (to be fixed with screws in circle)

26467












http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/245.jpg

so i lowered it down











http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/246.jpg

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/247.jpg

fuel injectors were replaced with 0.6mm black spring










http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/248.jpg

wrap the injector with thin cut masking tape

i hope i can see them after covered with airbox :)









http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/249.jpg

i'm trying full-carbon monocoque - pain in the ass!!

enzo's monocoque is made of many different types of carbon fiber patterns. so i'll use several cf decals









http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/250.jpg

i cut the front subframe out for better cf decalling and some modification. this pic was my third try ready for clear coat

since it was my first sms decalling, i just wasted a sheet on getting used to it

i used 1/12 scalemotorsport decal for front and rear and 2 types of 1/24 ka models for door part and interior.

i heard both decals are cartograf made.. but huge difference on softner reaction










http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2014/03/251.jpg

rear is done as well..

i will post some more pics soon with other carbon patterns on door sides

thank you for looking

I'm impressed with what you've done - my skills aren't there yet.

Is the "corrugated" pipe part of the kit or did you make that yourself too?
Oh, and you mention T2M parts - I googled it but no good results. Who what is T2M?

I usually get parts from china(I prefer hobbyeasy) , there are tons of aftermarket parts and they do international shipping - ofcourse they provide english pages
the corrugated pipe is from t2m -the fullname is tuner model manufactory

Hi,
Very nice job. Please can you tell me where i can find these beautiful mounting bolts? It seems that you used the same on other areas of the kit. I have a 1/10 Enzo DeAgostini to build and these bolts are absolutely perfect!
