  1. Hi There, This one was built for the wee fellas roof. No nose weight and undercarriage to deal with.... Yeehah. I haven't strung the aerials yet and not sure if I will as their absence will make hanging a lot simpler. Primed with UMP Grey Painted with Vallejo Chromate Green, USN Blue, Tamiya Flat Aluminium, Nato and Rubber Black Chipping by Sivikrin Finished with Windsor & Newton Galeria Satin Varnish. As al
  2. Just a thought but they could make a rather spiffy mobile for over the cot.
  3. Excellent progress on the build but more importantly great news on the wee fella. Cheers, Alistair
  4. Hi There, Many thanks for your kind comment. The cars then certainly had an individuality about them that caught the interest. Cheers, Alistair
  5. Heartfelt Congratulations to you all. Cheers, Alistair
  6. Thanks very much. As for the camera yup been there. Cheers, Alistair
  7. Hi There thank you so much. The chrome parts were soaked in Mr. muscle oven cleaner then painted with AK Xtreme metals. There must be something about Genesis and exams. I travelled down from Dingwall to Dundee the night before my English Higher to see them at the Caird Hall. Wasn't a pretty picture the next day in the exam hall. It had to be Gilles he could make a Prancing Horse dance better than anyone. Cheers, Alistair
  8. Hi there, I can't take the credit for the red/white borders as I ordered the option with the white decals but thanks very much for your kind words. I'm going to get started on the Ebbro's soon and am actually looking forward to it. I, too, miss those years of F1 what I would call the Cosworth DFV years when we had drivers who could race and not just drive quickly but in saying that the safety of those drivers needed to be addressed. I grew up with Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Francois Cevert as my heros and remember them fondly and well. Cheers, Alistair
  9. Hi there, Good choice of kits that man. Hopefully it's something nice and simple and relaxing. It's supposed to be fun. Enjoy it. Cheers, Alistair
  10. Hi There, I managed to get this for a really good price at the Scottish Nationals last year. That's not been an option recently but keep looking you'll get one eventually. Hi there, Thanks so much. I'm sure yours will be a lot better. and a wave up the hill from here. You're not far away at all. Cheers, Alistair
  11. Hi There, This was picked up in Perth at the Scottish Nationals last year with the idea that it could be a test and learning build for the 3 Ebbro kits that I have lying as I want them to be as good as possible. I originally built the same kit in 1980 in my last summer in Dingwall during a Summer holiday from college and so I thought it would be a helpful test subject. Painted with Mr. Hobby White Primer, AK Extreme Black Base, Aluminium, Polished Aluminium, Chrome, Humbrol Italian Red. Finished with Alclad Aqua Gloss II. Decals from Indycals as the kit ones wer
  12. Eek the aftermath of the masking looked sapping. Well done with the recovery. They certainly look more than good enough for display. Well done after all the trials and tribulations you've endured. It gives hope to mediocre meddlers like me. Cheers Alistair
  13. Those are looking really good. Cheers, Alistair
