  1. Yes, this was a 16-still a mint condition classic car worth upwards of 13-15k on the market today I'd guess. Considering a new Fiesta ST or Polo GTi would cost you 18-20K depending on spec, and a fast Mini or Audi A1 getting to 25-27k now, I still think this might be a bargain if I was braver. I'm tempted. Really very very tempted... Who needs dealer warranties, parking cameras, bluetooth and satnav anyway...?
  2. The guy next to me in the office drives a 205GTI- let me give it a spin around the (private road) country estate I work on today- speaking as a millennial who has only driven various 2000s hatchbacks, including a 2016 Mini clubman, this was an AMAAAZING car! I was laughing like a maniac. I WANT ONE!
  3. spot on, thanks Mike! Will
  4. Looks like Norman Court has been becalmed! Day after day, day after day, We stuck, nor breath nor motion; As idle as a painted ship Upon a painted ocean.
  5. 4mm represents 1ft in scale- or 1/76 Will
  6. There was a little known short wheelbase 7V conversion done by Allen Taylor for the RAF- used as aircaft tugs, but kept a short load bed too. There's a solitary picture in the Tankograd British Military Trucks of World War Two. http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?53674-Raf-allen-tailor-convercions Bad news is I think they were mainly employed on the roads bringing newly imported aircraft from the docks.
  7. Cool aircraft. Modelsvit continues to impress- just wish they'd release them a bit slower so I have a chance to buy them all! Is there any way of easily displaying the VK-1 engine, it'd be a shame to close it up completely. regards, Will
  8. Crickey, just realised how long I spent looking at photos trying to find a match! John is right- 68ft British Power Boat Company ex-Langermark. And here she is... http://www.bmpt.co.uk/what-happened-to-minxy_topic343.html http://blog.through-the-gaps.co.uk/2012/09/sapphire-sails-saturday-sees-empty-quay.html There is another 'Battlefield' survivor built by Thorneycroft, presumably the more or less the same design (?) - http://www.nationalhistoricships.org.uk/register/1337/amiens-rasc
  9. sorry, couldn't resist...
  10. Crickey Bob, sounds like your drawing of Algol was not quite a labour of love... Will
  11. Is this her? http://www.lardex.net/joomla/index.php?option=com_sobipro&pid=198&sid=3373:DAGLI-Ex-OcelotAlgol-1977-Cammell-Laird-2&Itemid=0 http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=585026
  12. I have a real love for the Hawk 75, and yours is very nicely done indeed. (Best served with hot Dijon mustard on the side?) Will
  13. Hi all, does anyone know of a source of fine 'chain' type ships railings in 1/700 (i.e the type with a sag between each stanchion) thanks, Will
  14. Oh my! Beautiful as that is I doubt I could manage it- I assume those brass masts are made of a gazillion pieces that need soldering together!?
  15. If I references like that i'd never get round to doing any modelling at all- I'd spend all my time working out a kit's errors and the potential to add details! Will
