  1. Spotted this a little while ago. I have a suspicion it’s not real, but it really put a smile on my face
  2. Sorry for your loss Oliver i was enjoying your thread until the sad news at the end. Nice for you to dedicate this build to your brother
  3. I do have a soft spot for Morgans (probably like most in here!). That one looks like a beauty
  4. Haha! The best way to sort out the seats after so much effort to get them looking right
  5. Nice to see how this goes. It’ll be a while before I start mine, but do both front and back bumpers need to be added after fixing the interior in place?
  6. The Hyundai? Or the band? (I saw them in the 90’s, still one of the best bands to see live) This is the kind of engine that needs to be on show. I’d love to see a comparison to the original
  7. Give it a good clean? Looks pretty good underneath
  8. Some really nice spots. Why is a 2 door Rolls so cool, when a 4 door just makes me think wedding car?
  9. Wow, that makes me jealous! I’ve always felt I’m better off seeing classic cars at the shows & let someone else take on the troubles of ownership. But to be able to drive the museum pieces definitely wins spot of the day!
  10. Why yes it was! We’d been looking at stone circles all day & this was the highlight for me
  11. That’s interesting. The BMW Mica paint I used, the flakes were tiny compared to a Mercedes metallic I’d got from Halfords for a previous build. That’s about the only comparison I can make. My Lamborghini Oracio Metallic from Zero Paints also seemed to have scale appropriate flakes. this is is what Zero say on their website: It doesn’t say they scale down all their metal flakes, just the paints where the original has large flakes
  12. If you can get the paint code from Peugeot, then Zero paints will make it for you, airbrush ready. They use smaller flakes scaled for modelling & pre-thinned for an airbrush. I’ve always had good results & got them to make me a BMW Stratus Mica which was delivered before I’d finished preparing all my parts
  13. Visited a sleepy village that time forgot & saw one of these parked up outside A little cottage selling home made jams with an honesty box. I’ve never felt more English
  14. So sad to hear. I didn’t know him & I've only been on this forum for about a year, but in that time I’ve enjoyed his pocher thread and every post was encouraging, helpful and full of enthusiasm. RIP
  15. What a fantastically period colour! I’m sure I saw one of these before with a gold coach stripe instead of the chrome beading on the sides. Not sure if it was a factory option or a Halfords go faster special great work, I’ll be watching with interest
