Thanks for sharing this great build with us Ian, it brings back memories from many years ago when I built one. I think I may have to have a look and build one again.

Just an outstanding build. Your paint is silky smooth with a high gloss, and no orange peal.

I did notice that you wired the engine and added fuel injection lines. I'm about ready to start a 1/20 scale Ebbro Lotus 49 or a 72E. The kit doesn't come with any detail wires or lines. Did you purchase yours (if so what sizes and from where), or did they come with the Tamiya kit?

Nicely done. I built the 1/12 version back in 1992. There is just something about the P34.
