Hi all well this is going to be left for a while to let me cool off (I came sooooo close to throwing it against the wall) went to fit the wings and complete radiator as you saw I did in the last update and with those in place tried a fit of the bonnet (no chance 6 mill gap at the front, or back depending on where you want the gap) after several minuets of scratching my head I figured out what the problem was there was a gap all around the top of the firewall of about 2 mill, lift the front of the car a bit gap disappears and the bonnet fits perfect (I think the floor pan is bent) (I know the back part is but thought I would sort that when I finally glued it on) so lifted the front of the car glued the firewall to the body let it dry, released the body and the bottom of the firewall came away from where that was glued (too much stress I guess ) after a very fidely application of glue to that area, mahoosive amounts of taping to hold it there, let that dry undo the tape all fits perfect, just start applauding myself for sorting it and ping gap at the top again. How I stopped myself I don't know, but I didn't throw it, I don't want to come that close again so having a break for a little while.

Hi all well I've figured it out, On the ladder frames which you slide the subframe on the sub frame was about a mill away from end of the ladders which through everything else out unfortunately that part was stuck with a capitol S but with a lot of jiggeling I've moved it the mill required so now back to work, I've added the inner roof lining and weathered it.


for some reason the weathering is not showing up in the pics very well, trust me it looks very grubby.

Really happy to see you back on the horse Ken !

Glad to see you manged to figure out what was impeding the fit too.

I can see the grim on the headlining mate (looks great too) the vac formed lining really does look like an upholstered lining ! If you had said it was fabric I wouldn't have disbelieved it

Simply amazing work, Ken. Just mind blowing effects! It's already looking as if it's been parked beside a garage for a while. May I suggest that you dull some of the paint in random upper areas. When they've been sitting long enough to rust, the paint usually oxidizes pretty badly as well.  [wink]

Hi all well the bonnet is done (I must say I'm quite pleased with it)(not sure whether to put a few small dents in it here and there)

If not for the background clues to the scale I would swear this thing is in your garage, Ken. That carpet looks amazingly real!
