  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 thr
  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,

    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 qu

    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

  21. Apologies but it appears the format went a bit wollobly on a couple of the entries and I don't know how to fix them. I have given myself a good talking too for being such a doosh at computery things and biscuit rations have been cut for the morning...
  22. Morning Chaps and Chapesess Well, there it was, gone! It wasn't until I started getting all the pictures together that I realised how much I had actually built this year.... 22! So, Are you all sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin. Tamiya Kawasaki H2R The best Tamiya bike I have ever built. The detail is incredible, the fit is fantastic, just a pity that there is no fork set for it really. If you've built the 1199 Panigale, this is better Took me 18 months to finally build it, but fantastic! Added the Studio 27 carbon decals, which is why it
