  1. I'm with you all the way Rob. Anything I can do to help? Sorry, I still haven't sent you my Totip decal artwork. I did come across a problem, I hadn't planned it with the stripes, I was going to mask and paint for those.
  2. Sounds like an excellent plan Rob. Interested as ever.
  3. brilliant Rob, can't wait for you to produce these. Very keen indeed.
  4. Vesa, Andrea R and Rob. I'm still very interested in any of the model canopy improvements you produce and also anything for the front wheel arch vents. I am looking forward to your continued progress.
  5. I think your photos are pretty good actually and a very useful resource. Personally, I thank you for posting them.
  6. Useful information Rob, as always. Thank you.
  7. Thank you NFR, that's the greatest compliment to say you are inspired. Good luck with your 197, post progress on here.
  8. Ok, It's such a small thing but I took Camo Viking's advice and have added a retaining lip to the battery shelf. It is the only thing I can find in all the reference I have that shows any evidence that the battery is held in place.
  9. I can only add my admiration for your build to the other comments already here. I bought this 1/8 Heller recently with a view to future proofing and the probability that my eyesight will continue to degenerate - the bigger the bits the better the build (probably not!) May I ask how you determined the RAL colours that you state. I'm at the paint stage of a Citroen DS19 body and having trouble matching a light blue.
  10. Thanks Camo Viking. Hmm, interesting. I have to admit that with all the reference material I have there is no evidence of a restraining strap or any other mechanism. There should be a small lip on the bottom plate actually. You are right I should adjust for that, although I can't see that that would hold the battery firmly. Mind you if the real thing is anything like the model the fairing is extremely tight to get on and off, perhaps that would prevent any sliding out?
  11. I'm very interested in this Andreas. I'm watching carefully. Can you tell me if if the side windows will also be 'vacuformed'?
  12. Hello Andreas. I'm very interested in your proposal. as I said previously in this thread, I have designed 'Totip' decals for this car. If you decide to go in to production for a cockpit and body please consider selling one to me. One question, and I'm not sure if you already considered it as you mention vac-forming, is how you would produce the glass/ windscreen, windows?
