  1. Top 1/8 kits of all times

    Careful pal - you'll be moving to the next larger flat...
  2. Top 1/8 kits of all times

    Another job of excellent research and presentation Roy. Quite a few more examples than I thought existed too. Thank you for the kind comments about my Rolls. Yes, most all the Pocher classics can be considered art, each with varying degrees of difficulty. Several examples of the Bugatti and Mercedes have been in progress here and a few, sadly, not brought to completion. I got completely taken-over by mine and developed a great affinity for the 1:1 examples. You appear to be headed in that direction with your magnificent scratch build of the Delage. Deep involvement always produces outstanding models. I'm so glad you switched the build plan to 1/8 scale. Waiting anxiously for you to begin the build presentation. I will warn any of you that most all models in this category require a great deal of space to appreciate them properly. Plan wisely if you're contemplating more than one or two.

    In good time my Good Man - check with the various Gods to make sure you're good to go. -And I never forget an outstanding model...

    Wonderful to hear of your rally Paul. May the Surgical Gods and the Modeling Gods hasten your complete recovery! And get you back in action here. You still owe us the completion shots of the Maserati 450, which I personally am waiting for! C'mon man ! C
  5. Another molotow thread

    Thanks Shaun for this informative work with a popular paint treatment. My tests with slightly lower pressure but similar coats look best to me with no clear coat. This may work well for large sections of high-polished aluminum like the 188-PY of Dave Cox, which has been vacuum plated.
  6. A last bit of open air motoring before the harsh weather closes in. Stopped at a friend's lovely estate for a cordial drink and good company. Arriving home, the Sedanca will be treated to an oil change, detailing and then under the flannel cover for the winter.

    You boys have got your research down to the atomic particles - way ahead of me. If I squint and it looks like what I'm after from across the street - I'm good with it.

    I go with your previous thought Mr H that those indicate holes - lightening holes in a stiffening brace. Why would louvers or vents be in a crossmember?
  9. H's 806 1:12 scratchbuild

    Well Mr Harvey, you certainly win the Crazy Man of the Year Award for hand-whittling your own bolts - among all the other wizard things you've made here. MDF, brass, steel and Lord knows what else - ingenious use of materials. Inspiring work for all to enjoy. A sincere thanks for the clinic on how to do such things and the pleasure you give us as we follow along. You will have a spectacular model and most satisfying journey.
  10. Delage 15-S-8 Grand Prix (1/8)

    Dan you have provided magnificent pictures and I'm sure Roy has a vast reference collection. The view of the timing gears that drive the cams is to die for. Sheer mechanical excellence everywhere on this vehicle. Thank you for sharing with us. Roy, I support and salute you for the foresight to select such a fabulous subject. I know you will make this a visual feast and capture the total beauty of the prototype. I hope you can soon turn your full attention to bringing this to fruition. I will anxiously await its development.
  11. Jo- wonderful job, a true race car look. Love the natural metal hood finish and the sparse nature. It's almost a bare chassis which is beautiful. Please continue and post updates, we need more Pocher classics !
  12. Delage 15-S-8 Grand Prix (1/8)

    Roy, I feared I had angered you with my decal suggestion but I didn't wish to drive you away. Several of us have interest in a solution or choice, as Dan has suggested, on your part.
  13. Keith, I am quoting myself here because it reminds me how impressed I was with your work on this at the time. You last posted in July that PB has killed this thread. It is true enough that they ruined all our threads among those who used it, but surely it did not halt your work. Please take a picture of the car today and post; we have all easily found suitable alternatives to host our shots. If you have posted updated work please advise where it is as I must have missed it. The same is true of the other classic Pochers in the works at the time of disruption, by Kennerly, Poul and others. Gentlemen, please bring back the Pocher classics you had in progress. Surely Wayne Boutsas and I can't be the only ones to have completed a classic project. You work is sorely missed... C
  14. Tip: to eliminate frayed cut edges on your carpets, go to fabric or craft store and get 'FrayCheck' liquid.

    Glad you're doing well after a big scare Mr H. Continue to delight us with your skills now that you're back in action!
