Bought my Litlun a radio control version of the prototype, about 1/12th scale. Considering how cheap it was it's quite an accurate rendition. Tempted to detail it!

Still awaiting a package from Japan with the GTi & CRX. :evil_laugh:

I was pleasantly surprised when opening this as it is NOT a kerbside and has a nice V12!

 My order from kitsforcash.com turned up today and I was plesently surprised as the tamiya porsche 956 Rothmans car I ordered came with a set of speedline decals to make the marlboro car from 1983 which works out really nicely as I have a spare 956 in the stash which I didn't have a plan for

I have just acquired the 1/20 Tamiya Tyrrell P34 with the etch bits, which look like they'll make it into an excellent model out of the box. I had another F1 project in mind (Camel Lotus 102B) but that needs modification so it seemed like a good idea to do something simpler first.

 

I'm also eyeing up the Bimota Tesi after seeing Pappy's build of it, and some on-line pictures of naked bikes. Phwooar etc.

Ken Miles' 1966 GT40 (well chuffed!), 2005 Raybrig NS-X plus Zero blue/violet and the recent re-pop of the Revell BRE Datsun 240Z. Pretty pleased all round really!

There's some mold flash on some of the pieces but overall I think it looks good for an old kit. Nice rubber tires but the instructions are kind of crap, but it looks like an easy kit to build so it is not a big deal. How everything fits together I have to wait and see until I build it (hopefully soon).
