  1. Thank you .PhilX I have 5 or 6 brass era cars. If you are interested look back on posts think you will find 3 others.Still got 2 more to post.
  2. Thank You Homer. County Durham lad myself, till they messed it up & I became Tyne Wear.
  3. Thank you for the kind comments & likes.Much appreciated. It was a good build.Shame there are not more 1/16 scale auto's around.It would be a nice scale using today's manufacturing technology
  4. You say so much missing.Hope you can ignore or scratch it to completion. Would be a shame to bin it
  5. Coming along very nicely. Hope the missing parts do not prevent finishing the kit. Checked up on one on Ebay but the price was OTT
  6. I look foreword to following the build of a unusual car.Sure you will do a great job.
  7. Great build Well done.Love the colour.Got one in my collection but not of that quality .Couple of years ago I was in Monaco just after F1 race & a little 2cv was circuiting with all the supercars. It held it's own against all the wedges.
  8. The variation of the cab colour is just my photography. The nearest to the true col is the second off last one. Thank you for looking
  9. All in All quite pleased with this one & looks good in display cabinet
  10. Finally done after a 3 day break while I repaired & restored my laptop after the dreaded blue screen of death. Multi talented or what Ha Ha. This was a thoroughly enjoyable build. A late-ish addition to the chassis which I gather is to do with the bed lift. also finale engine assembly & the instrument panel,which I was not entirely happy with,looks Ok with the roof on. All in All I am quite pleased with this one & looks good in display cabinet
  11. Fine job Well done. It will make good display.
  12. Hi JeroenS Quite right it was me who made comment re painting & gluing.Have taken the plunge and got a 1 /35th kit (civilian B type Bus) & I think a tractor will follow. Most impressed with quality of kit, & your building skills.
  13. Main cab body painted & test fitted. Getting close to finishing this one.Will post when done.
  14. Looking good & doing a great job assembling it. Seems quite a complicated model .
  15. Great work Jeroen That looks to be an incredibly detailed model.Will have to give 1/ 35th scale a try. Just been to Specsavers so should be Ok.
  16. Completed cab interior Scratch built white box on floor which I gather is the bed lift control. The instrument panel was copied & embossed in computer program, not sure it has given the effect I was after,but it will hardly be visible when cab is on top. Also a clean up & primer coat on cab itself.So coming along OK.
  17. Oh I like the look of that. Unusual subject. I have only built one tractor & that was just a load on a Blitz truck.Will follow with interest Not done a 1 35th scale kit
  18. Thank you Jeroen. I get on with them pretty quick,being on my own now, & in the covid situation I can spend as much time as I wish modelling.Got to admit I have not got the patience to wait weeks for paint to dry, or other time intensive procedures I like to move them along. I also only do one model at a time.I have tried two before but it just does not work for me.
  19. Thank you folks. I have over the last 3 or 4 years really enjoyed building these great kits.
  20. Latest & probably last addition to my Emhar 1 24th scale trucks
