  2. more progress on the TN6C2 - the cab is nearly complete and the main colours are on the passenger compartment (minor issue meant I had to reopen the passenger compartment- this kit is fighting me all the way)

  6. Resurrection time...... I had coveted this since first seeing it in Beatties Birmingham when I was 13 - 40 years later I brought one on eBay as my get back into modelling project spent 2 months building then got distracted and shelved it - 5 months later and the cat decided he didn’t like it on the shelf so sent it to the floor - it’s sat there now for 15 more months dejected and unloved - it’s time has come though and it’s now back on the workbench first job was to repair the cat damage which got me back to this Over the last couple of weeks I’ve
  7. Signed up and ready to go with that ........... when I say ready I mean I haven’t actually decided what yet - probably what randomly comes up on eBay the week before it starts a bit like the Heller GB
  8. Taxi de la Marne ICM 1/35 Finally finished after 18 months on and off It’s been a challenging build - slightly misaligned molds meant every part had to have work to get them to fit along with the usual ICM over engineering (why use 1 part when we can use 5 on something you won’t see when it’s finished anyway ) Happy with the result though in the end
  9. I have 4 stashed away in the garage somewhere ............ I have no idea why however
  10. I’m missing it already my first GB but I suspect not my last - it’s been challenging, entertaining and a learning experience all rolled into one. thanks to all the mods for a good clean fight .........
  11. C'est fini First one of my 4 builds started last one finished - it fought me at times but quite happy with it in the end
