Slowly my car is starting to look like something.
I once painted the monocoque, but it looks like (think very nasty words here) so I won't show that.
What did work was the rear suspension. It is now fitted to the engine.

The kit is from Tamiya. They make the best kits at the moment. They cost quite a lot (up to 50 euro here) but they are absolute quality. Where other marques have problems with good fitting, Tamiya is spot on.

The monocoque looks good too now. A few thing have to be painted of it, then the engine and the interiour can be hang into it. Will make pics of the process and post them here.

Right - I just bought a 348ts kit by Testors, on e-bay.

All I need to do now is get around to building it!! Bearing in mind we've just moved house, and there are a million and one jobs to do, that may be a while!!

Can't wait to see more of the "enzo evolution"

You having a good time, Dr Bob.

I used to love doing it, but don't have the time now. :(

Well, I do it a week, and then it goes onto the shelfs again. It always stucks at the spraing. My models attract a lot of dust, so they never look good then. I have 2 models lying that only have to be painted. I have to find a way to finisch them, because they are quite good. My Enzo is better, but that is because I get better at every model. This is only my fourth by myself. I did a Lotus super seven (it sucked, due to me) I got a F40 (Red/Red) and a 360 Spider F1 (Black/Tan) lying around, that only have to be painted, those look quite good. The Enzo is better. After this I have a F1 car, and then I want to start a conversion to a racemodel of the 360 or the 550.

Ah, looking good!

Sounds like some ambitious projects you've got.

Once summer rolls around, I think I'll be able to get to model building again. School has really siphoned my time away from any liesure activities. :(

Question: are you using an airbrush extensively? I've got the same model kit, and I stopped after painting and assembling the engine because I figured that I should look into an airbrush before continuing with some of the larger parts in the model (i.e. seats, monocoque, etc).

No, I do everything without a spayer, except the body itself. But I'm really not that good at it, so that is why there are still 2 models that only have to be sprayed.
