Did it already arrived? How is the condition? :)

Hi Martijn... Yep!
It's arrived and I'm very happy with the kit. I've spent a lot of time this week inspecting it and the damage. The paint job on the bodywork top is beautiful and the detail done on the engine is excellent. It looks to me as if the model was dropped, causing considerable damage, I thought maybe he lost interest in the build, so decided to give up and sell it. On closer inspection I don't think it's a complete write off. There might be a couple of rear suspension parts that need replacing and maybe a sheet of new decals to be able to finish off the decal work on the lower body. There's a lot more to the kit than the photo in the listing alludes to, there are a lot more parts that were not included in the photo. All in all I'm a lot more impressed with the kit and the work done on it than I was when I first saw the listing. So much so, I contacted the seller and thanked him, he told me the Red paint he used was Zero Rossi Red 70 formula. He also said:

" yep! I lost interest and did some really silly things, if you fit the lower body to the car and fit them etch side skirts they are funny, the car needs a nut to tighten the join between engine and tub, spoiled decals, broke rear right suspension, it was alright but not the best, I asked mfh for a decal set and never got reply so I just stopped. "

I've looked at what he said and I agree with him, it does look funny!!! But I've looked at pictures of the real car and it looks very similar, so I'm going to say it looks funny on the real thing also!!!
As he said in the listing, the wheels alone are worth £35 quid...

Wow I'm very glad to hear that the condition is that good!
But are you keeping it for spare parts or something, or are you gonna build it properly?
I'm very happy for you that it worked out that good ;)

Hmmmm!!! that's the question??? isn't it. I have several ideas, options or possibilities... :S
I might use it in a diorama, with Mechanics working on it, with the bodyshell leaning up against the pit wall, thus displaying all the inner detail of a beautiful MFH kit. Or completely repair the damage and display it as the car. Using it for spares seems a waste and somewhat disrespectful to the original builder, but of course is an option. Personally, I like the idea of the diorama!!!
5. July 2015, 21:24
Martijn Kuijpers
Yeah that's a great idea, should be a lovely diorama!
Is the damage good repairable? Otherwise you can build this as the car with body panels on, and the other T4 in your stash as a full naked car, what are you usually doing with full detail mfh kits, leave the panels of and show the details or just everything on?
I ask that because I'm doubting about it, clothes on, or clothes of....

People look at a display, you get comments like, that's nice is it Corgi or Dinky??? I've seen these Toys in shops thought of having one or two myself!!! TOYS, toys indeed :O
Some people really know how to rile me hummmph!
I display MY models fully clothed, if the viewer shows her respect, I will unclothe her and reveal her naked beauty. Otherwise tough ((( :D )))

Yes I like the dio' idea too... I was thinking that, where there's damage, like the rear suspension, I'd leave the wheel and suspension off and to one side, with the mechanic or mechanics working on that area of the car... with the the other two cars ready to leave the garage, as in those days they had three cars ready to race. One was the spare car or T car, as it was also known as!!!

Martijn Kuijpers
That would be a wonderful diorama when ready, 4 of these beauties together!!!!!
Ooooh Steve, don't tell me about it, what can I say about people who call it TOY, it it ART!!!!!!!!
Or ' what a nice little car, are the wheels turning?' Arghhh........
I'm always doubting about that, clothes on or off.. As a former mechanic ( just for one year at a certain German car manufacturer with a star on the hood) I'm always very interested in the technical aspects, I always try to buy and build at least two kits from a model, so one with the cowling on, and one off.
But for example the Tamiya T3 isn't the most easy kit to do in full detail, the kit is 35 years old and without mayor engine details, so I I'm probably gonna build it without a visable engine, although it's a beautiful flat twelve in there....
But you even close up a perfectly build MFH car?

What I'd do in situation like that, is build the car curbside, then display the engine next to it on stands!!!
You could even have a mechanic working on it, or discussing it the with team Princible...
I'm not a skilled mechanic with certificates etc, I'm self taught. Never did it as a living, as such, but I've restored two Triumph Spitfires, a GT6, an MGB, Hillman Minx, Triumph Vitesse 2 litre, Triumph 2000TC and a few Mini's including 2 Mini Coopers and some others along the way... I fixed cars for friends, family and neighbours but with an understanding, that if it was specialist work I found they needed doing, I or they took it to a specialist to be done properly!!!
Last thing I needed was being held responsible for an accident :S

Martijn Kuijpers
Wonderful to hear that you have the technical skills too, and you did the restorations of these cars just for hobby and fun?
I wasn't the best mechanic to be honaust with you, therefore I only did it one year, I understand all the mechanical things pretty well, but don't talk about electricity.... If there's something I really don't like it is certainly electronics technic..
I like your idea of displaying the engine beside the car, not shore if the T3 engine is visable from all sides, or that it's molted to the rear suspension...
Nevertheless, I was thinking of doing this with the fujimi F248 as well, the MFH version without clothes, and the fujimi curbside with his engine on stands.
May I ask what your current project is Steve, I'm very curious about it ;)

Besides my household chores :S of which I get a list every morning, today the Gas Man's coming to service the boiler, I need to go to the Vodaphone shop, as my new phone arrived yesterday and I want to keep my old mobile number, it says they do it at the store. Whilst out I'll visit the local craft shops etc. But it's not my mundane daily chores you're wanting to hear/read...
I'm currently building, ( strictly OOB), a Tamiya Clear View 312T3. I want to compare it with a Tamiya 312T3 built using aftermarket anything available, wheels, trumpets and other turned parts, any etch I can get and replacement decals. The comparison is to see, if there's visible difference between the two builds, are all the aftermarket parts worth the cost or just some, is the OOB build just as good, better, worse or just simply passable, as my teacher used to put on my school report, " tries hard could do better." Lol ((( :D )))
8. July 2015, 06:41
Martijn Kuijpers
And how do you like your new phone Steve? ;)
If there is EVER a site who still sells these 312 T/3 wheels, please let my know :D of course for a reasonable price (you know what I mean ;) )
So and does it make a huge difference in your opinion to build the T3 without all the extras?
I was again thinking about the engine thing tonight, show it or not.... I'm gonna make a silicone mold from the engine and casting it in resin, so I can build the car including the engine, and can show the other on stands, and I can even re-use that engine for different 312T models :) totally happy!!!
And you're certainly a happy men with your new 2008 baby I suppose ;)
