More progress.

Engine work has begun, drilled out the spark plugs with 0.5mm drill.



Turbos mocked up to begin headers.


Engine pinned with 0.8mm brass rod to make connections for intake and exhaust.


Exhaust manifold made with 2mm styrene rod heated and bent.


Inlet manifold made so engine can be seen when hatch is open




Primer is dry, so had to have a mock up for motivation



Thanks for looking

Re: Tamiya Ferrari F40, not for the purists

It's getting better and better with every update. I think F40 is my favourite Ferrari but I'm not a purist and I like your version, maybe not sure about engine, but keep going anyway! Can't wait to see it finished!

Exhaust piping continues. Wastegate plumbed and mufflers scratched built and PE welds from Top Studio started.

Thanks guys.

Exhaust manifold is now wrapped with masking tape and to be painted to replicate Kevlar wrap.




A test to see how it fits with the subframe fitted


Intercooler piping being made


Of course another mockup to check



Cheers

Still in the primer stage. I'll be adding a splitter and canards to the front. As for colour, I am waiting for Khyzal's render to work to. I think we will be going with either German grey or medium-dark grey.

Very cool! I did a Testarossa with some crazy mods a few years ago, this reminds me of how much fun that was! Ciao!
