Hi Fernando.

Yes its great, have most things within reach for the bench. Still have to vent though the end studding for the spray. .Found a perfect fit for the vent hole using an piece of 100mm soil pipe. Will get that in place over the next few days.

No sign of that canopy, I keep expecting to see it on the floor. Ive cut out some clear plastic, but gluing the angles is going to be a test. Had a play with some tape and made a harness, should be able to jfit that without too much swearing .surprise Going to have to leave off the instrument panel, just can't get it in. Should have put it on the frame before I put the body on. Not really bothered as It can't be seen.

Still need to play with the camera.

Hi Peter.

I have decided to go that route with the darker back ground .I shall go though some of my photos and see what the wb settings were. Oh if things were simple nerd.When I tried to alter them in Cannons Photo programme they were not too bad.

As for the build, yes its ok, just taking my time.Have the body together.

Hope you painting on the project is going your way. PM sent

Hi, men.

Steve, that made me really laughface 20 and two eyes left !!!!!!!. Yes then engine came out well , now you can't even see it .teeth 2

Sjors...... Cheers for that , I have two cameras , one Cannon EOS 300D and a 5D . I had a play around this morning, I think the problem is the new LED light . its around 5000 K I really wanted pure daylight at 6000plus. I kept getting a grey background as you can see. I will have another play, seeing if I can reprogramme the WB. I had the color set to RGB .I remember doing the white set up years ago, will have a go at that again, so you might see some changes.

Buddy .

I know I only have one good eye, but those decals look fine to me. I go for a wash of a light brown, just to reduce that starkness of the red. No way can you crash it after all this effort. Behaveteeth........................face 11face 20

Michael .

I had real problems with the paint last year, added more bearings to help, and made a jig to fit onto a long series jigsaw blade. Works a treat on a low speed. Certainly beats hand shaking
