  1. I think it should be 90% the same as the Tamiya 25… some suspension changes and wider wheels and tyres are what makes it a 33… best, M.
  2. Seconded.... and it's clear that it's impressed the heck out of Dario Franchitti, who knows a thing or two about fast cars. And that's despite only being able to drive the engine development mule flat out, and the prototype T.50 at half revs... best, M.
  3. Thank you @Eric53 you want the 15” three ear spinner inserts RS1512 if he has them, RS1507 2-ear if not… best regards, Matt
  4. 100% agree that being able to find and buy one is a “big advantage”… best, M.
  5. Seems like it never came to Europe: China and the US as a “global car” because they like saloons more than hatches… best, M.
  6. Later Hurricane in 1/48? Or two-seat Meteors? Bond Bug and Porsche Carrera 6 Vintage Classics…? best, M.
  7. I’m jealous… been in the new house about six weeks now, and itching to get back to the bench… except I too have to set up the new workspace, and there are still a good few jobs around the house to do first! The Blu Lagos is a super rare special edition, with 205 built, five going to Japan and the rest sold in Italy. The interior is actually a pale creamy beige leather, not yellow, though the fine stripe down the side IS genuinely yellow. The metallic blue and cream combo is classic Ferrari, so it’s maybe not as tasteless as it might seem at first glance at the instructions. The wheels look accurate for that edition, too. best, M.
  8. Thanks to the handy Harleyford "Book of Miles Aircraft" on my shelf: Master 2 Download full size here: https://cmatthewbacon.smugmug.com/Family/General-and-family/i-bDX4c4b/A Martinet Full size: https://cmatthewbacon.smugmug.com/Family/General-and-family/i-HVf5NgL/A HTH, best, M.
  9. Firefly, Blackadder (3 and 4) and The West Wing… best, M.
  10. Forgetting the best is the enemy of the good arguments for a moment, that means the B-52 (and in some cases, the SAME B-52s) will have been in front-line service for a century… Wow. best, M.
  11. Too slow on the draw for a picture, but walking the dog this evening in Whiston (S60) I was passed by a Triumph Toledo in glamorous mud-brown. One of 160 on the road, according to HML… best, M.
  12. Good scores… the DB4 is definitely the same series as the Maserati, and probably the most accurately shaped of all of them (the E-Type and 250 GTO are pretty approximate). The DB5 is the Doyusha kit, also available in Bond form with resin 007 and Oddjob figures. The original Airfix Bond DB5 got turned into a DB6 and then disappeared. best, M.
  13. I’ve got a Turbo Commander flying north-south racetracks at 5000ft between Chesterfield and Wakefield, heading slowly east. N980AE, but no idea what it’s doing… whatever it is though, it was doing it in France last week… best, M.
