  1. New 1/24 DB5 from Revell?

    Agree about Doyusha, and it says that Heller and Airfix tried and this form is from the same era. Are you sure it's not this one? https://www.scalemates.com/kits/243032-revell-dune-buggy Rich

  8. Hello Rich,


    I made measures on the drawing 2, reference drawing for accurate reproduction of the 806, and I would need you to make these measures on your model, so that we can compare. Could you do that, please?


    Very friendly

      Hi Oliver, presuming that you haven't received an answer from Hannes, I will measure for you when I return from Scale Model World.



      Olivier even, sorry

    Ref the advertisement colour picture, the steering wheel is on upside down? The same image is on the black and white instruction manual for the meal kit. Rich

    John is quite correct - Humbrol 220 - Italian Gloss Red (ironically) over a grey (metal) primer. The grey is sufficient to take some of the brightness out of the finish which is what I was trying to achieve. Being a gloss enamel it will also achieve the level of sheen required as opposed to the "wet look" that modern single or twin pack laquers achieve. Rich

    Olivier, my model is the original Protar white metal bodied kit, out of the box with no modifications. VT copied one of the tyres for his resin versions. loving this exchange Rich
  13. Mpc general Lee

    In the TV show show where the General was built, Cooter refers to it as engine orange. This has lead to the conclusion of Hemi orange. In terms of consistency, this illustrates your options: Rich

    Hi John. Go back to the pic I posted from the Locomobile levers, the knob is on the GAS lever. Maybe as you say it's associated with the ignition (?) lever? Rich
