      This is a new build of a "Tamiya" Chatham Super Seven right out of the box. Paint is not necessary but I had to add something. Glue is not necessary as the super detailed model assembles with screws. The instructions are perfect. If you think that something is wrong, rest assure, it is you, not the model. It becomes an exercise in trust.

    As you can see the screws are small so those extra strong reading glasses will come in handy. The Steering case and Tie-rods are operational with rubber boots at the ends. I painted the Shock absorber Dampers yellow to add a little color to an otherwise dark undercarriage and yes they do work.

    Please excuse the name error. The name of the car is Caterham not Chaterham.
    The engine is not finished but is ready to be installed. Note the serpentine and alternator belts. The engine is propped up for the photograph by a lug wrench. Not only are the wheels mounted with removable lug nuts but you can just about disassemble the entire car after assembly. I have never built a model like this before. Even the oil filter is removable.

    As an after thought the carpeting is not quite to scale but still looks good just the same.

    As I have said before this model was made for assemble / disassemble. The brake, clutch and gas peddle assembly was just to dark so I was able to remove the two screws that held it in place, paint the assembly an oily-steel color and reinstall it.

    The seats were painted with water base POLLY Scale Panzer Red Brown and washed with super thin black Enamel 1:12 Caterham Super Seven .

    Before applying the black gauge decals to the black dashboard I applied a drop of white paint to the gauge face. There is not much to work with here but I think it makes them stand out a bit more.

    This was a great kit-model to build. The fit was dead on and you had to look hard to find flash 1:12 Caterham Super Seven . There are other variants of this car that can be found on ebay.

    The display case is finished. I made it from leftover bamboo floor material and scrap plexiglass. In my stash there is an AMF 1937 CORD in 1/12 scale and I plan to make it my next auto project. I have also been working on a WW2 Zero Type 21 in 1/32 scale so I will finish that first. See you soon.
