    Please tell Paul that he can still build in his mind because as someone said before here building is 80 ./. solutionning and planning in the mind and the rest is execution. The cars Paul built are beautifully crafted and meticulate. Codger and Ron are a great choice to finish the work and honour the quality of Paul's builds. This tells me that Paul is doing very well in his mind. Wishing you courage and good luck to you Zoe as well and of course to Paul Sam

    Happy Birthday dear Harvey, what a feast in model making you are giving us, bless you. May the Almighty always give you the eyes, brains and power to do what you like for many many years forward and may you enjoy each of them with your loved ones, including your cats.

    yes indeed Jano had already left.... also i think the 806 s innovations clearly influenced all the others and not the other way around. being distracted by the beauty of these cars sometimes make me forget how cutting edge they were and how fierce competition was on the technical side... like today but on ugly cars ( by the way indy cars are now more beautiful than F1 i think... what s next ? covered wheels and a tank bumber ) cheers to all

    definitely amd definitely enjoying this as Harvey says. i also agree with you Roy that printing 3 d pieces should be only when it is not possible to scrtach them easily for an average modeller. Like for castle nuts. of course this does not aply to you or our scratch builder friends here....hehe am sure you all would find a way to cast a castle nut below 1 mm in metal even if only lead. gee these are interesting times for modelling great subjects great tools great consumables great softwares great members on britmodeller great communication tools and accessible museums
  15. fantastic Klaus Ludwig and The Zakowskis would be v happy!! martini 22 ?
