Gave the new airbrush a very quite try today, will leave the proper test until tomorrow when the weather will be quite a bit warmer.

Bought a new airbrush, a Neo for Iwata, which arrived to day.

This should have been a car update as I had intended to give the MRRC Lotus Cortina and the Vanwall their clearcoats today and at the same time try out the Zero Paints 2k Diamond Clearcoat which I bought a little while ago. However it turned out that my airbrush needed a full strip down clean and while doing this I managed to loose a bit the the floor monster, so no painting today.

Received a Revell Shelby Cobra Daytona today, runs on battery test but the tyres look a little loose.

Changed the rear axle for a MRRC rear axle that already has the crown gear fitted as I would hope these are the correct crown gears for the motor offset. I have also had to slightly shorten the front mounting post as the car was sitting slightly high. It still doesn't look quite right but any shorter and the front wheels will be to far inside the wheel arch. I have also done some final trimming to the interior plate so that it fits around the mounting posts and iit just needs painting now and a drivers head.

Printed a set of my adjustable body mounting posts and after trimming to just under length I have epoxy glued them in place. Once the glue was set I then fitted the adjustable caps and screwed the chassis in to get the correct length and after fixing in place with super glue I then after removing the chassis set them with more epoxy glue. Have already trimmed the rear of the chassis I found that this had not been necessary as I had to trim the rear body valance anyway to clear the mounting post caps.

As I'm using a MRRC chassis with this body I won't be using the normal interior tray which is also the chassis of the car as all the parts clip or screw on to it, I could cut these off but there is not a lot of detail anyway. The body kit also came with a vac formed interior that fits over the original tray and has quite abit of detail but this is also no use for this build as it's for a rally car and has the co-driver moulded in. As it happens I have a vac form interior tray from Pendle's that is just about right, the rear seat back might be a little bit to far forward but other than that I just need to find a suitable drivers head.
