Belt assembly glued on but as I mentioned earlier in the thread, this end buts up to the firewall so I'm pretty sure it won't be visible

Hehehe !

This is definitely not a show car that's for sure, wait until you see what I'm going to do to the interior and bodywork. This will be a ride fit for apocalypse when I'm done with a bit of luck

Ive got a ton of pics that I'm ( loosley ) using for reference ( like the one bellow ) I'm not concerned with being 100% accurate but they are good for helping me add details without me having to make it up and fill up the empty spaces.

In this one there is a pipe that runs along the front of the engine


The mounting points for this pipe are moulded onto the cam covers but no pipe is supplied in the kit. You can see one In the top of the pic and I have drilled a hole in it


So out with the aluminum tube and pliers again
Also glued pins into the ends of the tube to go into the holes mentioned above

This tubing is a little bit too large for scale and it kinks when bent but the thinner tube is used previously is too small and wouldn't look right so I went ahead and glued this one in




Added the little branch that a hose will connect to

Then used black paint to replicate the rubber hoses on the ends and used the airbrush to dust grey over to tone down the shine and blend with the rest of the engine



I've still got a few more pipes and wires to add but hoping to get that out of the way tomorrow and then I can get working on the engine frame

looking good so far bud,
the ignition wires look better for the dirt pass, less shiny and plasticky [smile]
as for the scale thickness, doesn't look that far off to me, high tension ignition leads are pretty chunky in real life,
up to half an inch thick on big engines, that's about 12mm so at 1/12th scale that's 1mm thick which is about what you have there it seems to me [smile]
but if that rational doesn't satisfy you how about this ad hoc (post hoc ? [biggrin] ) rational....

The year is 21?? and spare parts are hard to come by due to a post apocalyptic world etc. etc.
and "Mad Baz" had to make do with chunky cables to get the engine going again, ta da !! it's like magic haha [biggrin]
put a tool box on the back seat (or roof rack) to lend a clue perhaps ? 
... just in case anyone looks at it and thinks "my my, those ignition cables look thick" [wink] [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]


Anyhow, here's an after thought, so to speak ..
seeing as it's a post apocalyptic world one would need to go whilst on the go and pragmatic solutions are a must !
So I reckon this would be a popular addition to any self respecting road warrior from 21?? [smile]
Post aPOOcalyptic one might say [wink]

Cheers ! [biggrin]

Now you've seen it rewatch Mad Max and try and tell me something aint missing from the back of all those cars [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]

@ Paul

Hahaha ! Yes I can see that being a very useful accessorie to have during the apocolypse ( Deffo better than the sh** hitting the fan ) but alas I don't think I'll be adding it to mine as I'll be trying to stick to how things work in the movies and you rarely see anyone using the toilet lol.
I'll maybe stretch to a bumper mounted BBQ grill but that's as far as I'll go

I had a bit of a dry fit with the engine cover to see what's what and with all the bits in place it looks like this

No visible engine


Removing the centre cover shows a bit more but a lot of details will still be hidden


And with the whole lid out of the way


I'm thinking that I will keep the main lid but cut away the mesh detail as this should keep the lines of the car but also allow most of the bay to be seen and the mesh is moulded solid in the kit and doesn't look quite right to my eyes but I'll see what happens when I cut it and decide then whether to keep the lid or not

There is a muffler that goes in too and I'd quite like to paint and weather this in a similar vein to the pipes on the engine but as the rear grill is moulded solid in the kit none will be visible ( see pics of the rear of the car above ) so I'm thinking of cutting the grill out to allow this to be seen

There are just a couple of wires that I need to add the the engine but I'm going to wait until it's fitted before I do these for a couple of reasons, the first is it will make it easier for me to see where the ends of the wires need to fit to the chassis and also due to the fact that the manifold joint is quite fragile due to dodgy location points and I keep breaking them off ever time I handle it know and it's doin me bleedin ead in lol.

So I'm moving on to the interior
Here's the tub out of the box


I cut off the top of the centre console this will enable me to add some wires or water bottles etc


And made some holes. this is loosley based on some pics I have of a Testarossa being stripped and will allow me to have some exposed wiring

Cut some thin styrene sheet to match the shape of the centre console and to hide the ragged hole I made


Warmed it under a lighter flame and made some damage


And fixed in place along with another bit of sheet on the centre tunnel ( again based on referenced pics I have )

I can have some wiring poking out of the openings


Then everything got a dollop of primer


I used a brush to apply it to the floor and also scattered on some fine while it was wet and then airbrushed over the whole thing
