All finished now.
I actually started this one just before I began on the Ligier but it got sidelined while I was bashing the awfull Heller kit into shape.

A nice, straightforward build. I added a load of plumbing and wiring at the rear of the cockpit which frustratingly can barely be seen with the engine in place.

I will say that I personally think it's one of the ugliest F1 cars of all time...LOL LOL LOL

Nice job Roy, looks great, well done! I agree, it does look ugly with the later flat wedge shaped nose - kind of conflicts with the nicely curved main tub - but it looked much better with the earlier, more rounded 'dam' shaped nose?

Great build, nonetheless, well done! Cool ThumpUp
