    Yup, that looks very nice.
  2. Hi Mark, can you share the name of the vendor in germany for the case?
  3. MFH Where to buy Canada/USA?

    Thanks everyone!
  4. Hello, I''m looking to purchase a couple of MFH 1/12 kits but am having a hard time finding a place that handles them. Hoping someone on the forum knows a place/person or a reputable seller on EBay? I had an order placed with a gentleman in Florida, but he passed away unexpectedly, and his son had to refund my payment. I am located in Canada and can also pick up parcels in the US. Thanks, John
  5. BUGATTI T46 "Surprofilée" 1:8

    Dan, thank you so much for posting the pic of the T46 with wire wheels, and the web page links. Many years ago I started on my Pocher kit and built a set of wire wheels for it. That is about as far as I got, but your posting is starting to get the interest going again. And I would be honored if I may borrow your ideas and methods. The steering wheel build is simply superb and brilliant.

    Where does one check out or order "Roy's DVD"?
  7. I'll echo Vandellyn - great work and awesome photography. Do you mind sharing your photography lighting setup?
  8. Wow! this is an incredible build - and even more so because of the 1/24 scale. Learning a lot - love the idea to use shrink wrap for the joint boots.

    Roy, Thank-you for going so in depth on an all aspects of this. As someone else mentioned in different words - you're helping everyone by sharing your thought processes for solving problems, and deciding on various courses of action. Must say I'm also happy about the switch to 1//8!
  10. Damn that looks good! Can't believe it's 1/24.
  11. The Mini Lathe Thread

    Glad I found this thread. I have a Sherline lathe and mill. Self taught and feel like I'm just just scratching the surface compared to some of the experienced members here. I Initially purchased a lathe and mill because I was so unhappy with the quality of Pocher wire wheels once I was finally able to buy a kit. I had an adult dream of assembling the wheels, thought the rims were one piece and were actually chrome plated. I was quite perturbed once I found out how they were made. But it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as It made me start down the road to learning a new craft. Wire wheels are very complex items, which I soon discovered. I believe I finally was able to make some decent replicas. However, I wish there was a way to easily dimple rims, which I could never figure out how to machine in (without CNC). Now I have some ideas but they would involve a press of some sort. This was all some time ago and now I'm starting to get back into modeling. Looking forward to this new chapter!
  12. Pocher Ducati

    WOW! this is incredible. You'll need to get out the old Fluke multi-meter to help figure out the wiring! Amazing work.
