  1. . You can contact Glenn Polkinghorne on : Who is very helpfull. All I need to do is cut a piece of clear plastic for the front & rear windows.
  2. Well done, love the Liberty Walk extra's!
  3. Although no camera, again, A BMW i8 in red going into the car park of our local cottage hospital, here in Buckingham UK. Sleek , has engine sound, expensive, but how many miles to a charge?
  4. Two more kits ended up on my front door mat this afternoon. Firstly a Heller Citroen 2CV in large scale 1/43rd! This version is the grooved bonnet design of 1938. The other was a resin kit, sent from Oz on the 16th May landing here in the UK today the 24th May, only 8 days on economy shipping! This kit is of the '60's custom Uncertain 'T' produced by Monogram many moons ago. Now cast by ResinBlob64 or Glenn Polkinghorne. So a complete kit, not a transkit with other parts to source.
  5. Yes a great, great shock to all involved in motorcycle sport. As an Airfield Marshall at the Silverstone Circuit just 5 miles from here for nearly 30 years I'd met all of the Hayden family, a happy, friendly, respectfull crowd who always travelled together. Nicky's siblings were also in motorcycle racing of one form or another. His accident happened only a few days after our Sky Tour De France winner Chris Froome was knocked from his bike by a car whilst out training in France, thankfully not sustaining any serious injury! The cycling community showed their respect at the start of yesterdays stage of the Tour of Italy when they was a minute's silence for Nicky. I understand that he trained with some of the riders in that race.
  6. Thanks very much Hamden.
  7. Thanks guys, yes retro buggies and decal printing is my bag!
  8. A very nice 1/32nd kit......................... Realising that it was a reasonably old kit, I scanned the decals to my PC and sized them on a Word page. Although I gave the decals a couple of coats of gloss clear they still collapsed when trying to lay them onto the body. So I printed the Word image onto a new clear decal sheet, then after drying gave them two coats of gloss clear and used those in the build.
  9. Well done Tim, superb, stance,paint & decals, Yes windows to me are always a pain, whether they are a one-piece or seperate, very difficult to get right and painting around them is my problem. that they never look right. But you've done a grand job on this one. I watch sportscar racing and this Lambo is becoming very popular both in National Champs and World Champs.
  10. AMENDMENT, someone has caught me out, putting the rear wing on, UPSIDE DOWN! So here it is the proper way up, all sorted!
  11. Thanks eddiesolo, yes I love the long coloured decals. I had no bright red, so went to my local car servicing and bodywork garage and they had a car colour rattle car display, that they are running down as there are now too many colours to stock and it's an acrylic! The 206 works factory cars never looked as good as these customer cars!
  12. I originally chose this 206 against the factory ones for it's bright colours. It's been on the shelf for a few or more years, the Tamiya decals still being perfect. This is one I kept back from my sale of 30+ kits............ I made two changes to the build....the roof camera alongside the fresh air vent wasn't used on this particular 1:1 car but as it was in the kit I included it, and I changed the grille to alloy mesh.
