  1. Aoshima Countach

    Turned out really nice. The interior looks amazing.
  2. Smer 1/24 Alpha Romeo

    Vintage racers/cars aren't really my thing, but this is a nice little model. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Ferguson petit gris

    This is looking fantastic so far. My first "real" job was at a garage and the owner had an old tractor (too young and daft to be interested in what it was), but it may have been one of these or something of a similar age. I remember it starting up on petrol and then being switched over to paraffin once it had warmed up.
  4. Wow, not a massive supercar fan myself, although I do like a Porsche!! Very nice looking model & an amazing finish. Huracan in digital camo sounds good!!
  5. The longest build i've undertaken

    This looks like a really nice model so far. Looking forward to seeing more.
  6. Tamiya vw beetle 1966 (1:24)

    Like this a lot. I'm a big fan of full sized air cooled VW. Always think ratty looking cars can be way more interesting than a full resto. All the dents, rust and patina tell the cars story.
  7. 1/12 Italeri Mefistofele

    This build is truly awe inspiring. Beautiful.
  8. 1/700 USS Zumwalt - Dragon

    Great looking model. Have to admit, I'm not really a maritime model fan, I was looking in this section to see if anything would inspire me to have a go a a ship of some sort. I also hadn't heard of this boat until I spotted this. Looks great, might even have a go at one myself, although I'll probably struggle to finish it to such a high standard. cheers Paul
  9. AEC Matador recovery vehicle (AFV Club kit)

    Excellent work. Sounds like an interesting build too.
  10. Thanks for the input Matt. I had already read your very helpful painting guide. I think I'd rather use the Tamiya primer, save having to faff with smoothing aftetwards.
  11. Thanks gtiffsrw, I used to warm the the aerosols before painting my banger shells. Is there any advantage to using Tamiya Fine Surface Primer over standard Halfords plastic primer?
  12. Gran Turismo Skyline R-34

    Another great model brought to life from the gaming world. Brilliant and well executed.
  13. I'm not so sure I'll be brave enough to post it, I can't imagine it'll be up to much!!
  14. All very good advice Ash. Swaying towards the Tamiya MX5, nice looking model. Although Mini's appeal, as I had one myself years back. Plenty of B&M and Home Bargains. I also work in the motor trade so have access to cheap primer, used to use it on the ABS shells for my RC bangers.
  15. Thanks again for all the ideas. Certainly given me some options to consider.
