    And of course we'll need a video of it driving!

    I don't have a whole lot to show for this weekend, the small stuff takes the most time. And I did some trials with the piping as well. Turns out that using Tamiya's X22 to fit the piping works brilliantly. Only not on Vallejo paint, as I already expected the X22 eats into the waterbased acrylic quite nicely. Tried to fit the piping using Vallejo's varnish next, but that stuff has no glueing powers at all, it's just too thin. Sooooo.... decision made: I'd really like to add the piping as it's quite obvious on the real seats and it's a nice detail as well. So I'm switching to Tamiya paint for the seats, I have to work out the right colours again but that's ok. I did think about fitting the piping with the X22 before painting the seats with the Vallejo paints, but painting the 0.2 mm wire afterwards is not going to be easy is my guess. I'm going to try it out on my piece of scrap though, who knows. Anyway, I have 2 finished seats, ready for paint at some point (delivery is in April, I have some time). I fitted the headrests and added some knobs for changing the seat angle. Also, I made a start with the headrests for the back seat. I cut some pieces of tube and filled them with putty, and made a little dimple in them. After a bit of sanding I think I have something to work with. Cutting these bits into the required shape is the next challenge. Thanks for watching.
  3. That looks the business. I like how you've managed to fiddle the Audi logo on there.

    These pics are great! I love the ambiance. You should turn this into a coffee table book!

    Thanks Harvey, that is a good tip. If I follow you correctly, would that mean painting the seats and the wire separately, then finally glueing the wire to the completed seat with the X22? Btw I plan to use Vallejo paint on the seats, my guess is that it doesn't much like the Tamiya clear. Could I use Vallejo's varnish instead, you think?
  8. Very, very well done! Looking at the final result you wouldn't know that it gave you so much trouble. The slightly dusty look is perfect.

    Still working on the front seats. Just a bit more smoothing of the "extensions" of the side and back cushions and they should be good to go. Also, I have refitted one of the headrests using 2 pieces of 0,5 mm brass rod. It looks way better then the solid block of plastic with which the headrest was originally connected to the seat. I'll say one thing and that is that I'm quite happy with the Optivisors I got a few weeks back By the way the grey streaks are from a light coat of primer I brushed on to check for "leaks". I am now going to try to fit some 0,2 mm wire to represent the piping on the cushions. I'm curious to see whether I can do that without getting glue all over the seat...

    At first I misread your post and thought you said £100 ... but no the price is indeed a lousy $1475 hahaha You've just invested in early retirement

    No problem! I hope you can find something to your liking. Scratching one of these would be a serious challenge

    Or maybe there are https://www.scalemates.com/kits/fujimi-011967-hino-super-dolphin-tractor-and-car-transporter-trailer--963687 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mitsuwa-model-313-car-transporter-ts1023--311345 You've probably already seen those as well, availability must be an issue.

    Ah right, the big stuff. Like this? https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-85-1509-auto-transport-trailer--940581 It's 1/25, not what you would like. Apparently no 1/24 kits available.
