1/12 MFH Lotus 79
Posted by wards model builder on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 12:05 PM

Hello all, this is my new topic which is going to be for one of my all time favourite kit builds. I was delighted to except this commission build and thought it was definitely one to share, I will try and keep this as up to date as possible given that Im very busy at the moment with several builds on the go.  



The model is going to represent Ronnie Peterson's final drive to victory at the 1978 Austrian GP.  


After spending a good long while organizing all the parts, I made a start on the engine block. 



Very early stages but the engine is coming together nicely, still a lot of detailing to be done. 



Thats all for now, back to the bench to start on the chassis, and the thousand of rivets that need to be added!!!

I've always wanted to see a MFH kit put together so I'm really looking forward to this.

Did you paint the raised “FORD” on the engine?  If so, how?
