  1. MFH 1/12 FERRARI 315

    Even the trestles (I assume a temporary construction aid) look immaculate !!
  2. Kawasaki H2R Hobby Design detail set

    Thanks Andrew, but I weakened and ordered it anyway. It arrived a couple of days ago, and looks quite impressive. Mind, the instructions look like they leave something to the imagination !
  3. Its a stunning looking model. Great work !
  4. MFH Brough Superior SS100

    You're too kind Andi. Exhausts on now. Just the saddle to go now. As said, I'm trying to replicate this in leather, so it may be a month or so before I finish that as I'll get the leather in the UK during my summer holiday. Still, I can always put the kit part in place for now. It'll probably take me that long to touch up all the chips !!!
  5. MFH Brough Superior SS100

    More progress with the fiddly bits. Everything is done now, apart from the exhausts and saddle.
  6. Thanks for pointing me to the existing thread. I agree with the above - it's little more than extortion, and I hope they put themselves out of business. Perhaps this thread should be locked now ? 1 thread is enough.
  7. Not A Model- Unable to Post Due To Photobucket Changes

    Imageshack went to a pay only service a while ago, and now Photobucket following... it's kinda worrying. The only reason I use an image hosting service is to post pictures on forums, and I guess they can't get adverts in front of the people viewing on forums. It does make you wonder if others are going to follow. Google photos can be used, and I guess they are safe from moving to a pay money model. However, it's a bit clumsy getting links. If only there was a way of linking to photos in my icloud account.
  8. It seems that PB are changing their t&cs and will no longer allow direct linking unless you pay for a Plus account. Does anybody know anything more about this ? im not sure if this is posted in the right place. Perhaps a mod can move it if necessary Below is copied from their web site.

  9. The Big Red Lo

    Just stumbled across this thread. It's stunning work Steve. May I bore you with a couple of possibly daft questions. Did you spray the metal flake straight from the can, or decant and airbrush, or would it just clog the airbrush ? The bolts on the engine case are incredibly realistic. Are they kit chrome, Alclad chrome, or real metal parts. I've been tempted by this kit, but the Brough Superior won in the end. (to be followed by the Black Shadow....) At least I can enjoy your build.

    I'm thinking of replacing the rubber seat that came with the kit with a leather one. However, I'm struggling to come up with a way of making a former that I can cover. The supplied rubber is too soft use as a former, and I want something a bit thinner anyway. Also, I don't want to risk messing up the kit part, in case my efforts fail. Has anybody got any suggestions ?
  11. Halford's car primer. Sticks to most things, including brass. Not tried it on Zamac, but it's worked on everything else ! Sadly I can't get it out here in Hong Kong
  12. I've got a Hubley Duesenberg sitting in my stash, so I'm looking forward to learning from a master. Im not a lover of Dremels, but perhaps justified for this model ?
  13. Ducati 1199 Panigale S - Tamiya 1/12

    Very nice. The chain is stunning !
  14. MFH Brough Superior SS100

    A bit more progress. Handle bars done. The speedo bezel was a right pain to fit ! The body is too big and it's a real pain to file a ridge for it to fit over. Headlamp Headlamp and pedestrian slicer fitted. Rear number plate Finally, the gratuitous overall shot, just to show off the overall progress. Excuse all the clutter in the background - I'm too busy making models to waste time tidying up !!
