  1. Afternoon All My first real proper job was a Motorcycle Courier for a medical samples company. You know the type of outfit. You have blood tests etc and the bike picks them up and takes them to the labs. Nice bunch of blokes but the day manager was an absolute A hole that took a disliking to me because I liked Heavy Metal. Did that for about a year until I could take the A hole no more and quit. Went for a coffee with a mate and no less than an hour later I was working for another bike courier firm, much better place, better pay and no more hospitals Did that for three years, and the last six months was as the day controller until the company was taken over by a big courier chain and our 'safe' positions weren't..... Wasn't it just so much easier in those days. You had money left when the month ran out
  2. Hi Steve. AK Extreme Metals are excellent Have you thought of looking at the Tamiya Range? Their Acrylics are excellent and the quality is 100%. Always guaranteed that the colour you buy in 2 years time is the same as the one you are using now. Worth a look. Mad Steve
  3. Morning Chaps This all smells a bit like bullpoo doesn't it... I've been using Gravity Paints EU for about 4 years now, have ordered multiple times, they have all arrived within a week and have never had an issue with any of the colours. I've never had grainy paint, I've never had to thin it down and actually never had any of the issues that people are talking about, and I still have some of the first colours that they issued. In fact I'll go as far as to say that I still have yet to find someone that does have an issue(s) that have been mentioned. I had one small issue, and that was a broken lid, and a new bottle of paint and a small gift was sent as a replacement, again within a week. I do like using Zero paints, even tho they are hard to come by here, but I prefer using Gravity. They seem smoother, and as said before the flakes seem to be to scale and they just seem to be easier to use (my opinion) I'm sure this is not the last we have heard of this battle Mad Steve

    The Weather,

    its a whopping 15.5 Degrees C Biggles That's the temp it was at 06h00 this morning here
  5. Afternoon Chaps To be quite honest, I use nothing but the 'chinese knockoffs'. I started on one of those badger single actions in the blister packs, which is ok, if you want a paint thrower (just my opinion) but it taught me the basics. The el cheapo's here are sold by a company called Air Craft. Spare parts are available and I have only had to change o rings on the trigger on one of them. They really do work just fine, perfect for me. I have four of them (all gravity feed) and the oldest I bought probably 8 years ago. I was also given an Iwata HP-M mini airbrush which is quite natty, but only really use it for touch ups or 72nd scale as its a single action. The thing I like the most, If one does pack up, Its cheap enough to just buy a replacement. Mad Steve
  6. Morning Chaps Why scratch build when those awwwfully nice chaps at MBdesignart are going to make a kit of a Moke It just wouldn't be cricket would it....
  7. I do have that already thanks TGA. Looking more for a front, back & sides view with dimensions for scratchbuilding
  8. Ok, cannot for the like of me figure this out, but I type M o k e and Mike comes out (obviously It will work now and I will continue my proud run of looking like a complete prat ) Edit - what the hell, is M O K E a swear word now?
  9. Afternoon Everyone Does anyone know of a source for 1/24th scale Mini M o k e drawings, or maybe has a set that they wouldn't mind sharing Many thanks Steve

    The Weather,

    Well, half hour ago it was like 32degC and 90% humidity.... Now it looks like we are going to have a biblical downpour and rain forecast the whole weekend - woohoo Oddly tho, no snow forecast
  11. Hellooooo Chrissy, there is a Tamiya Racing Mini (green one on the box), that has wider racing wheels in it. As for a Transverse replacement, cant actually think of anything at the mo.... Golf engine too big?
  12. Hi Matt The Tamiya Nismo Z Tune is quite nice, (As is the normal V spec II), but The Aoshima Top Secret version has quite a few extra's included in the kit. I cant recall one that actually has an engine, but there's a crowd called Eighty-One that does a full resin engine, as does Hobby Design.
  13. Hi Cratecruncher. It is being released as both pre coloured and normal assembly
  14. Yes, Yawn you'll say.... Been there, done that... Is it better than the Tamiya one.... Well for one thing, its bigger
