    PT Boat 109 in 1/72 scale.

    Looks very nice. Love the bow cannon and other details too. Atb, Steve.
  4. Picked up the Italeri 1/12 FIAT Abarth 695 SS last week, it looks really superb so far. Hope it builds up well. Thinking about the colour scheme at the moment, I don't get on too well with white and the decals are only supplied in red so I may go with pale grey. Atb, Steve.

    Spitfire 22 "Vintage" Build

    I'll keep an eye on this as I have a Revell kit in the stash. I got beaten by this kit when I was about 13/14, it was the wing roots that wouldn't go right and it ended up in the bin. I built another a few years ago with loads of added detail but no real corrections. I honestly think it makes a good looking model oob, I suppose it depends on how much emphasis you put on accuracy? I also converted one to Seafire 47 with the Freightdog set. I thoroughly enjoyed the last two builds at least. Good luck with it Peter, looking forward to the progress. Atb, Steve.

    1957 Triumph TR 3A

    Your Triumph is a triumph !! Splendid work and a marvelous tribute to the best looking of the early Triumph Roadsters. (IMHO) Atb, Steve.

    Honda S600

    Nice work, glad to see your bonnet issue was resolved easily. I wouldn't worry about Tamiya tyres melting the wheels. The only problem I have seen with Tamiya tyres has been on the older issue 1/12 racing car kits. With those the tyres seemed to shrink and disintegrate but I've not seen any melt styrene on the way to their demise as yet. Looking forward to seeing this come together. There are a lot of classic Japanese cars that I like and the little Honda's are amongst them. Atb, Steve.
  12. Very nice build Scott. I have heard there are a few 'challenging' steps with this kit, yours has turned out beautifully though. Looking forward to building the one in my stash later this year, will be Navy though. Atb, Steve.

    Phantom XT864 public unveiling

    Wow, that is just beautiful. Atb, Steve.
  14. Looking good. Well done on scratching up the missing cockpit parts, great save. Pity these kits are so rare, I would love to get hold of another one to do as a Suez aircraft. Atb, Steve.

    FIAT 806 - Test Flickr account.

    Hi Colin, although it looks to be OOB, there are quite a few changes. Wheels are laced with fishing line to give correct number of spokes at a more scale thickness, seat is made from balsa and filler, body louvres remade, ignition wiring replaced, steering wheel 'roped' with cotton thread, plus many other minor improvements. Atb, Steve.
