Well the Tecno is almost complete I just need the decals after which I can fit the windscreen and mirrors. The decals - Phil has been fantastic with his offer and delivery of help but its not certain they will arrive before we leave for NZ so it looks at the moment that the Tecno will be going Down Under to be finished in my daughter's jewelery workshop and then shipped back to the UK for the races. Sounds a bit like the Tasman series in reverse! Anyway here are a few photos of the car in its pre-decal state. Incidentally it does go round my track well although I suspect the gearing is a bit long (8:23) and its 85g weight doesn't help. Oh well I guess I wasn't really focussing on performance!!

The Tecno is finished!! Well as finished as its going to be and it has entered the Royal Mail system on its way to Andi. The decal problem was solved just in time as Phil's replacement set arrived yesterday and excellent they are too as you can see in the photographs below. Many thanks Phil - a real example of camaraderie on the Forum and of international collaboration. I put the decals on the Tecno yesterday and then fitted the windscreen (with miniature rivets) and mirrors today. However there was no time to clear coat the car before posting. I'll let the pictures do the rest of the explanations. I know some things could be improved but on the whole I'm quite pleased with it.
