I know you've been away for most of the summer but having seen your Ferrari "in the flesh" and had the pleasure of driving it on my home circuit I must say what a great car it is and it would be great to see you finish some of the other bodyshells that you've already started carving.
Looking at the first picture in this thread I can see how you've done the hard work of getting the basic overall shape of each car so you are almost there in creating another little gem.
Thanks David, I was pleased with the overall shape of the car and how it ran, it will be interesting to see how it goes in competition as I only race against the clock at home. Whilst in the UK I picked up some ferrules so I will be able to finish some engine details on some of my other cars. I appreciate your encouraging words. How did you enjoy your Goodwood trip this year? Best Regards Nigel

Goodwood was fun. I only went on the Saturday, I was offered tickets for the Friday and Sunday but had other family things to do. As you know, you can't do the meeting justice in one day as there is so much to see but we had a good look round the paddock for an hour or so and then spent the rest of the day walking round the circuit. I particularly like the fast section from Madgwick through to Lavant with the undulating sweeping corners of Fordwater and St Mary's which is where I watched the races from.
Thanks gents for the support, my finishing touches on the bodies are still lacking, but driving them on my circuit they look pretty good as they speed along.. The Station hairpin at Monaco is one of my favorite corners in Grand Prix racing so I was very pleased to find a photo I could use as a background. It was such a shame they took away the old station at Monaco as it was so picturesq and the abomination they replaced it with such a carbuncle, another reason the 60's era looks so good. The Honda exhausts were a challenge and I have the same to contend with the Ferrari, and Cooper Maserati when I get round to them. Regards Nigel
