    Hi Roger, Please do. All viewers welcome. Cheers, Alan.
  2. 1/24 Oldsmobile Aerotech

    I think I know which one I prefer... I think that I will stick with the silver for this one. Cheers, Alan.
  3. Hi All, This is another one I have rescued from the 'forgotten in the mists of time' shelf. I had kind of started this a loooong time ago, not sure when. Must be over 30 years ago, I think. Anyway, I have rescued it and plan to work on this as well as all the other stuff I am working on. So, pictures: This is the box-top: Looks quite aerodynamic. Hopefully, I can make a good stab at it. This is where I have got so far: There's two choices of version. A short-tail and a long-tail. This, if I recall, is the long-tail variant. There's an awfully long way to go with this one. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  4. That's true. I think my Mini did that. Cheers, Alan.
  5. Hi All, Just a small update. I have got all the transmission in and am about to install the suspension and brakes. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  6. Hi All, Just another small update on this guy. I have managed to attach all the fiddly bits of chrome-work and most of the side-lights. All that is left to do is the back number-plate, the rear lights and the roof furniture. So, pictures: Since taking the picture, I noticed that the door-handle on the nearside was a bit skew, so I detached it (it was fixed in with strong PVA glue) and re-attached it. We are nearly there with this one. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  7. Judging by the way the vines and tentacles are going, this guy is toast.... Alan.
  8. Hi Steve, Yes the TS colour for the blue was TS-15. It's an exact match for the Tamiya Decals as well. Cheers, Alan.
  9. Hi All, A small update. The front transmission and axle are installed on the floor-pan: Hopefully, I'll get the rear transmission on tonight. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  10. Hi All, Another 'Mini' update... I have most of the chrome-work attached now. Forgive the crap pictures: I'm not sure what happened here. The light was lowish, and I was hand-holding the camera AND crouching and wobbling... Never mind, better luck next time. Just a few more things to attach, like door handles, auxiliary lights and rear number plate. More soon. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  11. Hi Steve, Thanks for the info. I'll keep an eye out for these/ Cheers, Alan.
  12. Hi All, Well, after 2 and a half years, I have resurrected this beauty. The body shell is missing some of the markings due to decal 'rot', for want of a better term, but rather than leave it on the shelf of doom, I have decided to finish it, missing markings or not... So, pictures: I have started on the under-pinning's, and will hopefully be publishing those shortly. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  13. Hi All, Another update. I'm really on a roll with this. I have applied all the decals, and it now looks like a Rally Mini... I noticed that the Rally Plate was skew, but only after the thing had set completely. Not sure how that happened. Anyway, why not make the picture skewed as well ... Actually, it's just poor camera work... There still some more to do. More tomorrow, I hope... Thanks for looking, Alan.
  14. Hi All, Just a bit more progress. The roof is on. It begins to look like a Mini... You can just see the ignition leads lurking behind the oil cooler here... I have already assembled the headlights and spotlights, but not installed them yet. I think that some decaling is required first. Then I will reduce the risk of knocking them off while trying to apply the decals... Thanks for looking, Alan.

    Amazing bit of heart surgery! Looking forward to see further progress. Keep up the good work. I think that you would need shares in Exxon or Shell or BP or .... Cheers, Alan.
