  1. Does anyone remember John Chatham sportscars? They specialised in Austin Healeys They used to be based in Bristol. Now sadly. long gone... Cheers, Alan.
  2. I have always had a hankering to build a hot rod kit. This might just inspire me... Cheers, Alan.
  3. Love this car. Apart from a few aberrations, Maserati have created may beautiful cars. This is one of them. Cheers, Alan.
  4. I have this kit in my stash. So far (About 15 years ago), I assembled the front axle and that's all. I have a few of these 1/16th kits: Lotus Esprit Porsche 924 Jaguar XJ-S Duesenberg as well as the Pendle Princess. One day, I'll get started on it... Cheers, Alan.
  5. Gotta love the 'Made in GT. Britain' on the model. When was the last time Corgi die-casts had that on them? Cheers, Alan.
  6. Those square lugs also appear on a number of Airfix 1/48 military stuff as well...
  7. Maidstone and district - originally Green & cream, My bus company when I was at school. Cheers, Alan.
  8. I agree with Spiny and Redstaff. However, sometimes tedious little jobs like this can be therapeutic. The mindless tedium of the job allows me to think about other tings, like; "What is the meaning of life?" or "What's for tea?" And you get a sense of satisfaction when the job is done. In my experience, for some materials (Vinyl, for example - Monogram/Revell seem to love this material for tyres!), you may need a coarser grit. Anyway, other than that great build. I love the Tamiya F1 cars, though I don't have many in my stash. Cheers, Alan.
  9. That reminds me. My uncle Barry had a Mini van in the 60's. He was in a band, and he used it to lug his gear around. (Cool uncle. In a band!) He had fitted an anti-theft device that when activated (mechanically, I assume then) caused the door handles to hang down vertically all "limp-like" I remember it being the standard Mini Green. Cheers, Alan....
  10. I agree with that advice. Cheers, Alan.
  11. They did look so advanced in the 60's. Just imagine what it must have been like when it was introduced in he 50's!
