Oh yeah I also got the Pit tires and a Novak 21.5 stator to convert my 13.5 motor to a 21.5.

I picked up one of the MP4/5 bodies from TQ. Check their site to see they still have them in stock.

They did not release them as "bodysets", you have to do them from individual parts.
But I have the Lotus, Ferrari, and a couple of McLarens in stock and ready to ship. While we are on the subject, the wing mount for said bodies is not available at the moment, I have asked on multiple occaisions what the deal is with no answer to date

True, you have order the front wing and rear wing end plates. Both have their own part numbers. I still don't have the actual chassis to wing mount.

Boiling water and a flat surface worked.

http://f1paintlab.com/zencart/index....ex&cPath=10_12 They are there, although I just realized that the Ferrari is not, but I will fix that tonight.
Lots of new decal sheets coming in the next week or so, I know I've been saying that for a while, but the artwork is just about finished on the following
Mercedes GP W02
Renault R30
Ferrari F150th Italia
Benetton B188/189
They will be available through my store and TQ as well
Beyond that are
Buzzin Hornets Jordan
2011 Force India
2011 Sauber
2011 Virgin/Marussia
And starting after Jan 1 I will be releasing at least 1 new sheet a week, all the way through the season opener

Ran a B188 in the UK Eurocup series back in the early 1990s. And Nannini was a great driver to watch race, so easy choice for driver figure

The Buzzing Hornets Jordan would stand out really well on track. The Jordan guys brought a lot of fun to their F1 racing and still have a pretty good fan base. The less said about Eddie Jordan's choice of shirts on the BBC F1 coverage the better

I sure hope I get to make it down there in March. I'll just look for the guy with at least 10 F1s ready to run with all different paint schemes.
