  1. Formula one last season 2018

    Aren't F1 going to have their own streaming service for 2018? I expect it to be expensive, though, as even their iPad app is over A$4 a month just for live timing plus a few extras. Netflix is $12 a month for hundreds of tv shows and movies. if they get the pricing right, they will win back a lot of viewers. Maybe they could do a deal with Netflix or Amazon Prime?
  2. Nuremberg Toy Show 2018

    I bought the Caterham when it was originally on sale. It cost me over $500 Australian, which even now is a lot of money (about what the remaining Enzo and Porsche GT are going for). Good to see it coming back, shame I can’t afford to buy one any more. Must get around to finishing the old one! Only had it 15 years or so! I built a 1:1 Westfield in less time!
  3. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Mark @mbdesignart asked to see pics of my “track” car, a 1997 Lotus Elise that I use for sprints and hill climbs here in Western Australia. I’ve had it almost 10 years now and it has about 70,000km on the clock (43,000 Miles) and has been very reliable despite the large amount of time it spends on track. I have fitted a new cylinder head, flywheel, exhaust, shocks, seats with harness, wheels (got some genuine Lotus wheels from the UK a few years back), track tyres and I also put the stripes on it. Last year I won 9 out of the 10 events I entered for my class, but there wasn’t a lot of competition! Here it is with the newer wheels. Latest upgrade is a home made front splitter, and I have a carbon fibre rear spoiler on the way. Next upgrade is l.e.d lights.

    Love it! Fabulous job, Mark. Have enjoyed following this build. Have you seen this? http://www.bikeexif.com/ducati-mh900e-cafe-racer
  5. Fujimi decal help

    Would using fairly hot water to soak them in help?
  6. Yamaha Niken

    I wonder if it’s going to lead to single-sided front wheels on 2-wheeled bikes? Can’t really see what the point is, though.
  7. Great work. Awful joke! I parked my Hypermotard next to an MV Dragster this week. They have amazing single-sided spoked wheels, and I wondered what they might look like on my bike.
  8. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Indeed! Some pics from the latest Speed event, a hill climb. Nice selection of cars from a very tuned mini to a nearly new Subaru STi, big V8 Commodore, Mazda RX7, Westfields, a BMW 2002 with a Toyota engine, several MR2s (one turbo, one supercharged), and several Ford Escorts Mk1 and Mk2. Plus my little Lotus. Edit: Sorry, tried using OneDrive for photos but it won't give me the correct url. Will find an alternative. Thanks to Photobucket for screwing up the internet.
  9. Spot of the Day Part 2

    I compete in our state sprint series, and there are always interesting cars, from original shape Minis to Mitsubishi Evos and WRXs, Open wheelers, Porsches even a V10 BMW M5. I believe a couple of the minis this weekend had a Suzuki Hayabusa engine and a Honda Type-R engine! Sorry, didn't take pics of those. Here are a couple of interesting cars from the sprint this weekend at Collie, a coal mining town in Western Australia. Ford Capri Perana. A Mk II Capri with a huge American V8 And a Holden Torana. A bit like a Vauxhall Viva from the 1970s, but this is the GTR with (I think) a 3.3l straight 6 And if anyone's interested, here's an in-car video of me doing a personal best lap. It was a long day. 250km (155 miles) drive, racing, 250km drive home.
  10. What a fabulous idea! Love it!
  11. Italeri, FIAT 806 ... 1/12th

    Best model on here for a long time. Love it!
  12. Lotus/Caterham Super 7

    There's a BAC Mono die cast from Auto Art. Not a kit, and quite expensive. When I have lots of time (and increase in talent) I would love to scratch build a 1/24 or 1/12 BAC Mono. Fabulous cars. As for the Caterham/Lotus 7 - Tamiya made a 1/12 kit in various versions including cycle wings, long wings and a JPE version. @roymattblack built one a couple of years ago. I have one almost finished. It has been almost finished for well over 10 years, and I even managed to build a 1:1 Westfield since starting the Caterham! I think someone on here also converted the 1/24 Tamiya kit into a Westfield... Here it is:
  13. Just ordered two of these babies that have been re-released:
  14. Another Tamiya Mercedes Benz 300SL

    The body paint looks beautiful, definitely worth the effort! Such a lovely kit.
