  4. A BIG Rolls Royce

    A fitting home for such a masterpiece!
  5. 1930 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, Airfix, 1/32

    Thanks, Keith... the colour is Tamiya rattle can TS-11 "Maroon." It varies in apparent colour depending how you use it! This is intended to be a dark wine red, after a very cool looking Alfa 8C I found online. But put it on a 240Z and it's a perfect match for the "Chestnut" colour (I think it was actually brought into the Tamiya paint range when they released the 1/12th 240Z...) best, M.
  6. 1930 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, Airfix, 1/32

    Cracking job M, really nice finish, & I love the colour! Can I ask what paint it is? Lovely stuff, the three car line up would be worth a few bob in the 'real world'...! Keith
  7. Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

    Looks good, and big !!!! Will watch this. Quick bit of Google foo says best price of @£480 and then it could do with an £80 upgrade set, blimey
  8. Hi, Thank you ! Few more pics of the car undressed. And others with "clothes"! Voilà. Pascal
  9. One of Airfix's excellent 1970s new tool 1/32 cars (not to be confused with the Highway Pioneers style brass-era oldies, or the slot-car derived 60s racers)... Left to right: the Airfix M K3 Magnette, another one of those mid-70s vintage sportsters (along with a Bugatti 35 and Vauxhall Prince Henry); the Alfa; and Matchbox's Aston Martin Ulster. Now, on with a Jaguar SS100 and MG TD from Matchbox... best, M.
  10. A BIG Rolls Royce

    This is really amazing, and I have enjoyed every minute of this build. Bravo and congratulations on an exemplary build- beautiful, just beautiful....
  11. A BIG Rolls Royce

    Perfect for gazing and enjoyment on a daily basis. It's too bad that you can't resize down the background that you made for the pictures! A great accomplishment and now in a place of honor; happy viewing my friend!
  12. A BIG Rolls Royce

    That says it all in my book. Congratulations on not only a museum quality build....but now a museum quality home for it. Bravo my friend
  13. A BIG Rolls Royce

    A permanent home... The absolute last bit of the project is now complete. A glass case for protection and easy maintenance. Glass is preferable for easy cleaning and clarity; plexi will show rag or towel scratches immediately. And things this big collect a lot of visible dust and handprints. As well as curious pets and mischievous children... The previous plexi cover was temporary until the model was cleared off the bench(es) and room was available. The plexi came in 5/16" thickness, way too thick and heavy. This time I sourced 3/16" clear glass. Assembly was with pure, clear silicone and much fussing to get square and clean edges. You will use many razor blades, scalpel blades, mineral spirits and all your patience but for me, it's all worth it. There are currently many museum-quality models being built here just now. I encourage all of you builders, especially of larger scales, to make your own, exact sized, custom case. A bespoke case adds a certain presence as well as protection to your hard work. C

    Great job, never seen this kit before, Metal Flake paint job is great and looks in scale too. Well done, thanks for showing!
  15. I agree with the above, that looks real.
  16. Lovely job mate, it looks like it's 1:1 stood in your lounge! Brian
  17. 1/12 Tamiya Suzuki GSX1100S Katana

    That is so achingly beautiful it puts me off building the one in my stash as it would never look that good.
  18. King Cobra TTH

    Wow. I mean, just...... wow.
  19. That looks straight out of the pages of Superbike magazine (anyone else remember that)? Ace model.

    Oh yes, shades of yufe remembered. Back when cornering was all about muscling a huge great big lump of engine wrapped in a spaghetti frame around the bend in the road. Posters of 'real' bikes on the wall - I coveted the BMW R100RS - and then the sixes came along with the Kwak 1300 and Honda's CBX following on from Benelli's Sei. That's not a just a great model, that's a time machine taking me into my past.
  21. Dodge Sidewinder

    Based on a Chrysler concept , Dodge Dakota .1997 concept Pete. Dodge Dakota Sidewinder is the official name.
  22. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Yesterday afternoon on the A17 heading West, A red Cox GTM minus the engine cover. It used a roundabout for a U turn & went East. Today in Sheffield, on an H reg plate, a VW Transporter in full green & white German Polizei colours! (No roof lights) This evening a mid fifties Oldsmobile (I think) on the A15 going South.
  23. Hi all well it's arrived man it's huge here is a pic of the box And just for size comparison here it is along side a calor gas fire The instruction manual It's really well packaged And here is the Paul Koo upgrade kit I'm not allowed to start it till my birthday on the 26th of next month though (although I wasn't allowed to open it then)
  24. Dodge Sidewinder

    Nice, Can't remember the designer though. Was it a Coddington? Or a Dodge concept?
