Here is a nicely detailed kit. 

The engine impeller and turbine wheel. I played around with alclad burnt iron and pale burnt iron to give some tonla difference to simulate the temprature differences in the BMW's hot section.

Then all closed up, lucky most of the detail can still be seen

Very nice!

I don't recall having seen this one 'built up' too often. Looking forward to your progress.

Cheers

Just using the build moejoe before it runs low again :-(

I still need to sand off the locator pins on the inside of the front inlet and redo the alclad.

I wish I had all the extra resin and PR bits for it but my budget does not allow it :-( 

I will have to spruce it up with what ever I have in the sparesbox.

I like the look of that. Took me several attempts to get it how i wanted.

Adding the PE is a nice extra, but just some wire will make some nice extra detail.

Great job so far, theuns! Don't forget to use the brick as your background when taking pictures!! Propeller

I built the Tamiya 1/48th version of this about 8 years ago, and it was/is a great build, too. Luckily, Tamiya provides nose weight for it. Does this kit come with it?

Hey Gary, that brick is outside when I take pix in daylight LOL

No ballast supplied with this one, I wil have to fill the nose with lead and hope the nose gear strut can take it.

I'm sure it'll support the weight. Probably wouldn't take much to make it sit on the nose wheel. Good Luck with it!

Very nice start Thuens.  I love the way you modulate the colors on the engine.
