Since I posted the start of this build on here I feel obligated to keep it going on this thread. I copied my post from the F103RM thread below. Just incase someone is watching.

Well with the nice weather we had over the weekend I did some more painting. I worked on four helmits and painted the interior of the Williams FW18. The other three helmits are for future builds (Sauber C12, McLaren MP4/7, and a Williams FW-16. I still have to add some decals to the driver (crossing my fingers it works out) then I think I'm done...almost.

First step, glued and screwed the helmit together



Sanded down the edges



Mounted it for painting. I taped it down to a small bottle of paint. This helps too when I'm stickering, it's a little easier to hold on to. I used a clothing hanger to keep it away from my hands.





Added some primer and resanded. Then more primer.




I used the Tamiya polycarbonate paint (PC4) on this helmit so it matches the blue on the car.





Then repeated the process four times. I used gloss acrylic on the yellows and polycarbonate on the white.




I used the Jacques Villeneuve stickers supplied in the kit. The only problem is Tamiya wasn't so accurate with these (probably a licensing thing). His helmit has a pink line going around it. So this had to be painted free hand. I also added the Rothmans stickers, these where sort of thick and didn't lay down so well even with heat. That sort of bummed me out.







I painted the interior with flat acrylic paints and set the helmit in to snap off some pics.

Hey Michel, I'd love to see the MP4/4. Let's get it going...come on...what's the hold up. Just kidding. Seriously, I would love to see that car. I've been on the fence about order that one. I have the decals but I'm not the wings. Paint one up and post the pics.

rxsevengt: Thanks man! It's nice to hear feedback from other enthusiasts. I do appreciate it. I'm really trying to step this one up to prepare for the Williams FW-16 that's on the build list. I want my Senna cars to look good.

I'll post up some more pics as I get the other stuff done. I was lying in bed last night after the Giants/Browns game thinking of a couple more little details. I think I should start writing it down so I don't forget. You know, being all old and stuff.

Ok, for those following this thread heres the latest update.

I finished up the interior and mounted the helmit. I used some of the extra stickers from the various sheets to put on the driver suit. I think I'm going to hit it with some flat to knock down the shine of the stickers. I also used a fine tip brush to add some accents to the gloves and suit. I put some pics below. All I have left to do is the rear wing. Then I'm done!

Hello,

I still have a F102 chasis but the upper deck is missing.
It's the carbon deck that has the body posts and the battery straps.
Can anyone give me a part number of this part or maybe a copy of the manual because i never had it delivered with my car.

Hi, I hate to be the second first post in a row, but, I have an older F102 I am in the process of restoring. I used to race a 101 and a 101/102 hybrid at a local club. I was cleaning out some old Rc stuff and spotted the parts box, I was amazed that I still had enough parts to put a car back together. The problem I'm having is that I can't find the old rubber tires anywhere. I have a set of fronts in good shape, but the backs are foam. I'd really like to find a source of rubber tires...a new rear wing would be nice. Oh, and I saw some bodies on ebay but before I get one of them is there a better place I should be looking?


Thanks, and sorry for the noob questions.

Once again very nice Vyger, neat and clean.
With the helmet visor I find using a chrome vinyl and spraying is with a subtle candy colour to colour it results in a more realistic result.

many of the parts are the same.The biggest differences are the main chassis plate and inner mounting for the front suspension arms.Some had different wings too.Hope this helps.M

Thought I'd add my two cents - F102 painted just last weekend:
