I just started the build of the Mc Laren M1B for the upcoming CanAm proxy race. In the first step I'm working with a piece of PU foam and some putty to generate rough the outer shape of the body. Sometimes it is critical to get the 3D shape correct and find the correct proportions so I decided to acquire a 1:43 resin shell of Marsh Model which is on the photos as well. This will be kind of benchmark for the 1:32 model.
Hello David, i always use a fine standard two component putty which is used normaly for 1:1 cars. Quick hardening within minutes and without visible shinkage. The only downside is the intensive smell of the polyester resin. Best regards, Thomas
David, Thank you for the kind words. I'm feeling better already. :-) I found and bought the RR body on the wellknown internet auction platform in UK. Wasn't too expensive. I learned from the German Scratchbuildforum today that the RR body is based on an Aurora body. Best regards, Thomas
