  1. Well she is finished. And she is very robust (let my grandson have a go) he's 2 got a lot of crashing and rough handling but there is not a mark on it.
  2. Hi all got this for my birthday ( not built an rc car since I was in my early 20s, over 40 yrs ago) Things have changed a lot (detail wise I don't think for the better)
  3. I've got to say watercolour is not the medium for cars, you have maybe 30 seconds to blend stuff before it just becomes a muddy puddle, I think this is the best I could do in water colours, I should have used oils where I could have spent weeks blending the tiniest detai, that said I'm pleased with with the final result, maybe if I'd used masking fluid to mask the lettering I would have got a better result, but then I've heard of masking fluid tearing paper when removing it.
  4. Well its done.
  5. Hi all bit more done to this.
  6. OK so far the Revell kit is far and away the better fitting kit, the Airfix kit is lucky it's not taken an unscheduled flight across the room. Airfix kit. Revell kit. So far Revell is wining.
  7. Hi all not a model but a wip just the same, hope you're interested.
  8. Hi all going through my stash I've discovered I have these two kits of the same subject so I thought I would build them both at the same time so we can all see the differences between them. First thing you can see is the colours are different on both of them. I have no idea which is right (if either) but I don't really care I will paint them both as per instructions. The dark brown is the revell kit The whiter coloured sails are the revell ones. At first glance the revell kit is the better detailed of them.

    New arty stuff

    Hi all just got all the new art stuff and had a little play with it. Thats the grandchildren by the way.
  14. Well I'm calling it done
  15. More done to this and a question would the primed bit be going too far also is it better with the end bit or not.
  16. Thanks for the info, I'm sure when I get it there will be loads of questions.
  17. Hi all I know very little about rc cars (built several ships) I've convinced my missus to get it for me for my 65th birthday jadlam do a bundle which includes everything to get it running for 196 quid, are there any problems with the kit, will it be too fast for a complete newbie, how easy are cars to control (ships, or the type I've built tend to be slow and so very easy to control) how robust are they (ships tend to be quite fragile)
