It's time to start this project.

Model disassembled, paint stripped, rear part of the body removed with the Dremel ( because the new engine is a little bit bigger than the original BMW 0,3 L )
Putty here and there and the chassis is already in progress.

Thank you guys.

I try to work at least 4 hours everyday on this project.... stuck at home and nothing better to do than this and working on a capricious 1/1 race car....

Anyway, i'm still working on the body, removing the manufacturing defects,... the molding lines inside and outside. ( if the chassis looks good i could display the model with and without the body ) It's almost ready for the first coat of primer.

Big progress on the tubular chassis ( i'm waiting for some evergreen tubes to finish it and it should be ready for the primer paint ) The next step is to build 2 or 3 supports for the rear wing and the parachute and finish the rear axle in metal.

Teasing pics with the chassis.... as you can see the model will be a little bit longer than the original
