sauber C30- 07

And the sauber C30 is finished!
The last things I did were glue the front wing, add some antennas and some bolts on the body and finally put the wheels on their place. I also hand-painted the L and R marks on the side of the wheels.

It is a very nice model, quite easy to build (it must be curbside because there is no engine on the kit) and also to paint. As I told in preview posts, the most difficult part is to build the front wing.....

About the next model...   
Well, one of the reasons why the sauber was finished quickly is because we will move from our house in September.... We will leave the apartment where we all live now (it had already outgrown) and go to the home of my parents-in-law until we have our new house finished, I hope that it will be later this year .... 
Meanwhile I will bring the modeling table in my office (luckily I have enough space there) and try to go there some evening to work on my new models.... so maybe I will take some time to post again but we'll see what will happen! 

The idea is to build 2 Brabham at the same time, BT46 from Tamiya and the (wow, one of my favorite cars) BT-46b from Fujimi

As always, thank you for the patience and best regards to everyone!


sauber C30- 06

Hi again, in the last post I said I would try to not take six months to publish a new one..... well I have "only" taken three......
I applied three layers of 2K clear (from Hiroboy) to  the body, the rear wing and to the separate parts of the front wing (I thought it would be easier to apply first the clear coats and to fix the different parts after -I still don't know if it was the best choice-).
The clear coats went pretty well so I decided to don't sand it. I really like the finish of the dark grey color of the car.
The next step was glue the elements of the front wing..... I must say that this is one of the most difficult moments of the building progress.... The result was not perfect but acceptable enough.
Finally I glued the front suspension and the rear wing to the main body
