Hi all well I've not actually started building it yet but I couldn't resist comparing it to the biggest scale I've built so far (1/6 bikes) these bikes are huge but putting the ducati crank case and gearbox along side it this is going to be enormous (baring in mind there are no cylinder heads or fuel intake on it) by the time I add those the engine will probably be twice this size.
I will probably being upsetting the purists among you as it won't be the box colours it will be a custom job.

Hi all well I won't be here on my birthday so I got permission to start it today.
I decided to start on the exhaust as it has been noted as the worst fitting part of the whole kit, this thing is huge the bit of the exhaust I've started is the length of a 1/24 car and that's basically just the down pipe. So here is the start of this massive kit, I must say I'm buzzing with excitement.
Posted Image
I've plugged some of the screw holes
Posted Image
Then decided to add the first missing detail, the welding seam on the curved outside and inside section of the exhaust (i will add the weld seam round the other side when its finally attached to the rest of it)
Posted Image
Posted Image
I've not glued the two sections together yet to make drilling of the holes for the oxygen sensors easier.
Posted Image
Posted Image
There's loads of detail you could add just to this part and I'm going to try and add it all, I did say TRY.

Hi all well after an update on my samsung tab s2 it has made it totally useless for posting on forums so I'm now stuck with this incredibly slow and clumsy laptop so here is the next installment. i was following silver911 build of this and decided to emulate his enhancement of the exhaust joins and copied his use of aluminium foil on them.
Posted Image
also I've added the thickening where the oxygen sensors go
[IMG] Posted Image
(its made from the phillips screw covers from a bedroom unit)
made a start on the engine too. Added some weathering as well. Put a rule in the last pic to give an idea of the size of this beast.

Made a start on the exhaust valve and made up the spring hangers soon be ready for priming.

Hi all I've started weathering the exhaust I'm using Uschi metal powders and a combination of copper and blue grey dry brushed on, still more to do but it looks promising
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Added some more engine details like the generator wires

Hi all well here is the first disappointment with the upgrade kit he supplies the steel beads to make the banjo connectors for various connections but then tells you to use poacher 2 millimetre bolts for the head of the banjo connector (there are none supplied in the kit only cross head screws) I realise Paul has built loads of poacher kits, this is my first so I don't have any poacher 2 mill bolts, what I do have though is these.
Posted Image
So onwards and upwards
Posted Image
I've made the springs for the exhaust too.

Hi all well (despite the gorgeous paint job on the kit parts) I've primed it ready for the new colour (I intend to leave this for at least a week to cure before adding the first coat of the two pack paint I have)
Posted Image
Done some more to the engine

Hi all here is the next instalment.
I got fed up with taking longer to find a part on the many sprues in this kit by looking for the small tab on each sprue with the letter I needed (I'm surprised I didn't think of this the 2 times I built the Traction Avant kit) I've written a large letter on each bag for which sprue is in it.
Posted Image
I've made the starter motor terminal from a piece of whittled down sprue
Posted Image
Added the oil cooler with the added layers and the banjo connector using Paul Coos detail adding info
Posted Image
And the finished starter motor.
Posted Image
Bit more weathering on the engine.
Posted Image
All in all I'm quite pleased with the progress (even if it's glacially slooooow)

HI ALL I made this connector with some sprue, Paul Coos CD really is a mine of information (loads of reference pics of the actual parts, that's where I got the seams on the exhaust from)
Posted Image
This part is like a little kit in its own right

Hi all i wanted to try and show you all just how big this is so, this is a 1/24 lorry engine.
Posted Image
Now put it on the engine and you get an idea of just how huge this is.
Posted Image
I just couldn't wait here is base colour (No clear lacquer yet)

Well we've been away for the weekend at our friends caravan and I came back to a bit of a disaster
Posted Image
All the plastic parts are fine I couldn't work out what had gone wrong but now I have
Posted Image
No primer, I assume the plastic parts were primed hence they are ok.
I've removed the paint
Posted Image
(Another chance to see how big this is its nearly as long as my thigh)
Now I just have to 're prime it, I'm just wondering if I have enough of the blue left this thing is so big it took nearly a whole can to paint it(admittedly I did both sides of all the parts as I was not sure if the back of any parts could be seen) hopefully no more problems will occur.
