  1. What a joy! She's looking fantastic coming together! Very impressive work!
  2. Another resin challange, good to see! The late 80s to early 90s saw many lovely looking F1 designs, and some of the very best of course carry the name of Adrian Newey.
  3. Nice to see work continued on this one! Looking fine as always. I don't know UK sources, but what I have done on several occasions is to spray a piece of clear film in the colour I need, mostly using thin laquer or acrylic. It has worked very well even over quite complex surfaces. Might be worth a try?
  4. Very sad news indeed. I understod Codger was fighting a bit of health issues, but not like this. I came to know him through this forum as a very nice gentleman and a very skilled modeller, and not least someone who would always speak if he a good tip to give to improve something in a build. Always in positive spirit. He will be missed around here. R.I.P Chas, and good motoring where you are now.
  5. Fantastic work and a very interesting version of the 917. Very well done!
  6. A great save of the old bashed up kit, really nice progress. And a well worthy investment in the resin tyres. Good work!
  7. Alpine A210, 1296 cc, driven by Cella and Grandsire, 3 rd placed "index of performance". A210 made in 1/24 by Heller long ago, and Le Mans Miniatures more recently.
  8. Thanks a lot! It's virtually impossible to catch everything interesting...
  9. Many thanks! If the thread gives you inspiration, it makes it very worthwhile having made it.
  10. Thanks a lot everyone, you're comments and most kind and much appreciated. As I'm afraid you have already noticed I have to admit defeat to the GB expiration date... it's too bad, I don't like it, but that's how it is. What's happened is what usually happens over here when spring and summer approaches, just a little bit more of everything... We live at an old place out in the countryside, and this time of the year our land and houses need attention, and with some extra land recently bought that meant more work than usual this year. Then the 1/1 scale cars need to come out of their winter sleep, and one of the ongoing restoration projects is now being worked hard on to make its final trip to the body paint shop before summer is over. On top of that two major work (paid work) projects surfaced in May that must be finished before fall, and that effectively seized the vary last modelling time for a while. If I live long enough, I may learn a more sensible approach, some day... As winter comes work on T14 is planned to resume, and I will ask for the thread to be moved to the maritime section of the forum. Thanks for all support so far.
  11. I just stumbled on these very sad news, I'm very sorry to hear this. I never had the fortune to meet Nigel in person, but besides following each other's builds on this forum a couple years ago, we also exchanged many interesting PMs about various aspects of life beside modelling, and he was always a very nice person to chat with. And he was a very skilled modeller too. Not to mention his cooking, that slipped through quite often in his postings early on, and was very enjoyable. RIP Nigel, you will be remembered.
  12. Amazing work, the painting mind blowing. Fantastic!
  13. Most impressive work on this beautiful racer, I have difficulties grasping how small it actually is. Very nice.
