    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. What a fabulous idea! Love it!
  6. Italeri, FIAT 806 ... 1/12th

    Best model on here for a long time. Love it!
  7. 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:
  8. Just ordered two of these babies that have been re-released:
  9. Another Tamiya Mercedes Benz 300SL

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

    Thanks very much, Mike. Looks like they only ship to Europe, though. I'll wait until some come into stock at my usual suppliers - I really should finish a couple of other cars first anyway!

    Is that why Hiroboy has now sold out? 😥 Cant find anyone else who has them apart from Plamoz themselves, and I tried ordering from Plamoz but the website can't calculate postage - possibly means no stock?
  12. MFH Brough Superior SS100

    I'll take a wild guess and say it's MFH and 1/9 Edit: Check the tags on the post title - I've not noticed them in the past!
