Mclaren MP4-23

Postby Copramen » Sat May 10, 2014 6:10 pm

Hi guys
So I finally got a few days to work on my macca MP4-23.
Thanks to Toshiba & a dead HDD :evil: :evil: :evil: all I'm left with, is some iphone photos :angry-banghead:

I'm still trying to rescue my data :evil: :cry:

This photo is from before I fiddled with the rear suspension.
For some reason it was preventing the engine cowling from sitting properly?!?!

The decals are not perfect :oops: :oops: :oops:
I was out of decal softner, so just "winged" it :? I might get a new decal sheet from HLJ if I can be bothered to fix it.
Some places also shows "battlescars" from being roughed up when I moved and being repaired with super-glue :o

Some more pictures are on my photobucket :D

Nice work. Came up a treat.
I also like the combination of stash and display shelf. Ingenious!

Thanks Morrigan :D
My wife calls my display/stash for "cluttering junk" so might have to change it :mrgreen: (she's been offering for a while now, to help "arrange"it :P
Best Regards

Thanks guys, you are too kind :D
It's a basic OOB job, with some :superlglue: marks here and there where parts were broken off.
I managed to break apart the front-wing no less than 3 times :angry-banghead: so heaps of :superlglue: worts on that now :|
I asked Deag for the older issues to replace the front wing assy but they dont have them anymore :( so stuck with it :oops:

Casper, I ordered the GTR also but cancelled it again :roll:
Can't decided between that or the Pocher Lambo :think:
Also as nice as the 1/8 scale is, they dont fit very well with my 1/12 die-cast's and the GTR would have cost as 4 diecast 1/12's :shock: (not to mention the 1/18 diecast :roll: )
Available space & $$$$$$ (sadly) is not unlimited, so have to choose :think:

Next up; Deag Lambo Countach :dance: :P
Already up to issue ~30 so looking at starting that soon :dance:
Best Regards
Kris
