  1. They look gorgeous, so much better than the kit parts! Karl
  2. That’s a stunning looking Wurger! Loving the weathered look. Karl
  3. This looks interesting! Great to see a forgotten element of WWII getting some attention. I built the Mirage 1/48 PZL 24 about 12 years ago. Lovely little kit, but requires a bit of care. Karl
  4. Lovely job on the splinter scheme. I always find myself using acres of Tamiya tape when doing these schemes though. Karl
  5. Those decals look amazing! Lovely progress on the rest of the build as well. Karl
  6. FHeather great progress on the 111! I built the subject of your inspiration about 10 years ago from the Hasegawa kit, again nacelles and bomb doors were as awful fit. I dealt with the dismember by spraying on a coat of Tamiya acrylic NATO black using Tamiya thinners rather than my usual cellulose thinners, as it is less grabby. I then let it dry for a short period, probably not more than 30 minutes so it didn’t get a chance to cure, then went over it with a 3600 grit Micromesh cloth and plenty of water, scuffing the black particularly around high contact points on the airframe., before giving it all a coat of flat. Finally managed to add pics! Karl
  7. That looks truly stunning! You’ve done a great gob on the fuselage mottling. Karl
  8. That looks amazing! Love the NMF. Makes me want to finish my 1/72 iteration. Karl
  9. Interested to see how this develops. When I saw reference to printing I immediately thought paper! D’oh! Not very 21st century of me. Karl
  10. Looking forward to seeing how this one builds up. Spotted the kit when it came out, and fancied that immediately. Karl
  11. An absolutely immaculate Tatra 603 in gloss black on a trailer this afternoon. One of my all time favourite cars, so cool. Karl
  12. I spotted an XJ6 coupe in full 70’s purple on the back of a recovery truck. Didn’t look like it had moved in a while as it was covered in green algae. In much better shape was a Mk2 Capri alongside an early Mustang on someone’s drive, and shortly after a very tidy Volvo Amazon saloon. My mate had an orange Toledo as his first car back in the late 80s and decided to Armorall the interior..... .....no seatbelts in the back, so guess who slid from side to the other every time went round a corner! Karl
  13. Three classics on the M25 and M40 this evening: Original Lotus Elan Late model Alpha Spyder Jensen CV8 And this morning on the M40 an MGA, and not forgetting the Volvo P1800 in the office car park! Karl
  14. Must have been McLaren day today as I saw 3 MP4s on the M25 and M40, along with a Lamborghini Huracan. As long as the moderns, a Rover P5 and a Hillman Super Minx convertible. Karl
  15. A white Citroen Traction Avant in Sunbury this afternoon and a Lamborghini Miura on the M40. Karl
  16. Aston Martin Volante, the 60s one, in immaculate condition in traffic on the M25 this afternoon. Karl
  17. Henri Chapron Citroen DS decopatable, or convertible on the M25 this afternoon. Karl
  18. Loads of classics out and about today despite the gloom: BMW 3.0 CSL in full racing get up. Jaguar E-type convertible Dodge WC54 WWII ambulance Bull Nose Morris on a trailer Lamborghini Huracan Lamborghini Espada Ferrari 275 Me thinks there may have been a track day at Silverstone up the road to me. Karl
  19. A couple of German classics today: BMW 2002 convertible Porsche 356 Speedster Both on the M25. Karl
  20. A trip out to Reading this afternoon to drop eldest son off at the station for his trip back to university in Falmouth, so trip down the M40 followed by a trundle through the south Oxfordshire countryside, during which I spotted: Alvis TE1 convertible, immaculate in deep red. XK120 Coupe, again in deep red, and equally immaculate. Fiat 600 on the M40 resplendent in mint green. Karl
  21. Mad Max’s Bentley Coupe in Banbury this afternoon. https://www.carscoops.com/2017/03/this-bentley-continental-gt-off-roader/ I kid you not! Karl
  22. Today appeared to be Landie day in Banbury, with no less than 4 series 1 & 2 Landies out and about, but bizarrely enough, they were all the same blue? Also spotted was a very tidy 1987 Fiat Uno outside of Wickes. I can’t remember the last time I saw an Uno. Karl
  23. Bumper haul today: Ferrari 275 Series 2 Land Rover VW Mk1 Scirroco Citroen HY van Karl
  24. Out shopping in Banbury saw a Vauxhall Calibra, haven’t seen one of those for years, and a split screen crew cab VW bus. Karl
  25. Citroen HY van on a car transporter this morning on the M40. Karl
