March FW14B update

A small video clip of the build so far. The cockpit is almost complete. Just a few more details to add then onto the steering and pedals and running some brake lines and the accelerator cable. Once this is complete and the top is all glued in I can clear coat and polish down so I can get the suspension and the rear of the monocoque detail added.

Murray Walker passes

Over many years of following f1 dating back to the 80’s for me this mans charisma and voice kept me glued to the TV and radio. I’m so sad that this legend of a man has passed. What a wonderful person. I’d loved to have met him but never did. I will always remember the addiction to f1 the way he kept us on the edge of our seats with his amazing commentary. God bless him and thoughts are with his family and friends. RIP big man

March FW14B update

March has been a mixed bag. I haven’t had much time in the workshop doing the Williams build due to work and weather. Things are slowly getting there. I’ve had a few dramas but on the whole things are looking good going forwards. This next week I’m hoping to get the side pods and the under carriage of the monocoque completed ready for detail and Clear coating. Keep an eye on the wip. It’s the main objective to get this done before anything else then back to the 1/20 fujimi MP4-6 them a MotoGP bike.

FW14B update

If you are following my wip you will know that things are going smoothly, not a great deal of issues but a lot of scratch building going on in preparation for paint. There is still a long way to go but once the hard arduous parts are out of the way the fun bit of detailing will begin. I have started doing the cockpit detail but have put it on hold till after the weekend. Monday is a new start to a new week and full steam ahead to get the bulk of the front end and monocoque done.

The FW14B rebuild has started

The other day I started the FW14B build or rather rebuild. Every single step, every single nut and bolt will be shown as I travel on this second fw14b journey. So please follow on my home page the link to the build. In-depth discussions around the build how I’m doing it what I’m using. The good the bad and the ugly. Hope you will follow as it’s going to be the most complex build I’ve done yet.

Fw14B Top a studio Side Pod & ECU set

So Top studio have released the latest 1/12 Tamiya additional detail set. The FW14B side pod and ECU kit. Cannot wait to get my hands on this. Hopefully the Engine set by Easter. Awesome kit by the looks of it. Including a much appreciated and needed fuel head system set up. As for price I have no idea. I haven’t seen it advertised on any site so far as this is hours old. So keep your eyes and ears peeled. Set ordered on pre order to be released on the 23/01/21. £48 inc carriage to the UK. Cannot wait
