    This is my latest completed project. It is the March 761 as driven by Hans Stuck in the 1976 British GP, built from a PKAA kit purchased off of Ebay a number of years ago. The kit consists of 137 parts crammed on 2.5 pages, 1 page of written instructions (in czech?) and 1 page of illustrations with part callouts.
    I couldn't read the written instructions, so I built from the illustrations only.
    I added fine wire for plug wires and spring coils, also used aluminum tubing for the axles.

    Looks good. Nice job on the tires, still building 10 to get 4 acceptable ones myself.

    One of the best examples of F1 cars I've seen. I can't remember where I've seen better either. Clean and crisp lines. The plug wires and springs and he kind of details that throw a build way over the top, and the Red color, as the British would say are "quite right!!".
