  1. Wow! Just as I remember them in the day at the festivals! Super job on this well done!
  2. Thanks Cooper645, yes I've built the Mater as well....
  3. Well RichM that is some superb bike, I'd say the build is a great Triumph!
  4. As a snap kit it's well detailed, chassis, engine/gearbox, both axles/propshaft, brake discs and opening bonnet, but no interior. With the kit you get two pages of logo's one stickers and one of decals. I thought being the cartoon images of a Nascar I thought of trying to find some decals in my left-overs and having a kit on the shelf for some time and the decals being still perfect I'd size them up. The roof numbers are much larger (as the body is slightly smaller although still 1/24th)but still fit at a push I decided to use the kit ones from a Revell 2006 Dupont Monte Carlo, so after some trimming up of large blocks of smaller decals...................
  5. Superb work, now that's a real rallycar!
  6. Superb! As a rally marshall in the day these were invincible on the stages. The Irish (Eire) rally championships are rife with these now as they build new ones each year to compete in the series. Narrow tarmac lanes, just wide enough for one car. Exciting!
  7. Thanks guys, for the info as well.
  8. My second one of these Dave Deal creations. Bought as a glue bomb over ebay UK, with some sort of glue holding various parts together. The wheels had the axles broken after being stuck in the wheels backs and not matter how much enamel thinner was used I had to drill out the axle stubs. Seeing the original artwork from Dave on the box in yellow I chose that colour after sourcing various bits broken or missing, one of which was the aerial missing and the bendy exhaust broken (get out the candle to bend another). The aerial was made from copper wire wound round a small diameter alloy tube. Showing the difference in tyre diameters and 1/24 tyre decals at the front to 1/12 at the rear.
