  1. Lovely paintwork Giorgio, looking v.nice indeed! Keith
  2. Actually, I think you could be onto something there Nick....!! Keith
  3. Same stuff I use Tony; I think that could well be it, been a while since I've done any moulding but I'm thinking I tend to make the dam just above the level of the top of the wheel mould. Cheers for that Despite you saying it's a crafty photo angle, the glazing on the gold car looks really good, and miles better than what probably came in the kit. And a good bit of scratch repair on the blue machine! Keith
  4. You'll soon have a bigger stash than Hannants....!! K
  5. That won't stop him, he'll just build an extension on the extension....!!! K
  6. What Andy said! And I'm sure whatever you come up with it's going to look cool! No idea, would never even have thought of that! Keith
  7. I like the second set up better - looks sleeker...!! Can I ask how you do the moulds for wheels Tony? I can never seem to get them to stay round, always end up more of an oval shape... Still love that colour! Keith
  8. Cheers Pat, many thanks for your kind comment Keith
  9. Thank you both, I really appreciate your kind comments Keith
  10. That is beautiful, the finish is outstanding and it's difficult to believe it started as a Revell kit! Top modelling! Keith
  11. So have I, but it doesn't stop me wanting the Alpha models 992 911 that Hiroboy has in new products today! But I'd be living out in the garage with it if 'er indoors caught me buying it!
  12. Says the man who's not going to buy any more kits until 2025...!! They've also got the Revell G series 911 that desert falcon did those really nice renderings of in his thread yesterday for £6 off. Just saying.... https://www.jadlamracingmodels.com/revell-07688-porsche-911-g-model-coupe-1-24-plastic-model-kit/ K
  13. Absolutely no contest - and it isn't that bloated German thing next to the pretty Toyota! Looks like you could park the MR2 in its engine bay! I thought someone's nicked the badge? Keith
  14. If you're still looking for ideas Ian - wood decals? https://www.scalemodelshop.co.uk/1-32-1-48-woodgrain-decal-aircraft-fine-aircraft-interior-textures-uschi-van-der-rosten-1016-p17556 There's different varities available. Keith
  15. Fine idea, a man after my own heart! Oh to have the money to do a real one! I like!! Although personally I'd be tempted with orange decals too - or white wheels with the white stickers, as a sort of homage to a 73 RS. I've got a stalled 'in progress' Tamiya 930 Turbo in which I've removed the 'bellows' at the end of the bumpers (sanded and filled them) and also sanded off the raised black rubber trim pieces on the bumper, and left off the rear 'over-riders'. Gives the car a 911SC RS look. I think that would look good on a standard body G model, especially without the rear spoiler? https://www.supercars.net/blog/1984-porsche-911-sc-rs/ Looking forward to whatever you choose! Keith
  16. Superb...!! The rest of the work aint too shabby either! Keith
  17. The Escort Cossie took on that role pretty well though Gary, though I agree the RS1700T would have been an interesting Grp A car! When I first really got interested in rallying the Mk1 Escort had just been introduced - and led to my life long love for those and Mk2's! Other favourite cars (among many others!) from those days are the Avenger/Sunbeam, Firenza/Magnum, Saab 99 Turbo,Ascona/Manta, Fiat124/131, Minis and oddities like the Skoda 110 and Morris Marina coupe!! What I really liked at the time was that they were all really just modified road cars - ok the works teams had far better budgets than privateers, but with some talent (sadly lacking in my case!) a clubman could build a competitive car on a pretty limited budget - especially as the sport was so popular back then there were plenty of second hand parts available and the base cars were cheap - I never paid more than £450 for an Escort Mexico!! Unfortunately those days are long gone! Keith
  18. That is brilliant, absolutely stunning modelling! Love it all and it all ends up as a lovely serene diorama - which totally belies its true purpose in life! Top, top work! Keith (off to read the wip thread to see just how such lovely models are made! )
  19. And I've just been looking at the pics again and still think it's excellent that you got such a super finish on them with a brush! Brilliant work! Keith
  20. Whatever do you mean, how could that possibly happen.... (they really are a pain to polish out of clearcoat !! ) K
  21. Just like Le Mans - until they went to play with those fast milk float type things! I do agree with you about them killing off so many favourite classic rally cars though Steve! K
  22. Adrian, are we talking about flocking powder or static grass? I use the latter on my bases and agree you do get a lot more loose fibres after sticking it down. I may well be wrong (nothing new there) but think the flocking powder I use in car models and static grass for bases are two different types of materials? Keith
  23. Have to admit I've never had that happen (famous last words!) As I said I use wet enamel paint or varnish as the adhesive. Apply the flock with a tea strainer over a box lid to catch the excess flock and make it easier to return to its container, Turn the flocked parts upside down and tap the reverse to remove any loose fibres. Repeat process on any bare patches. Again famous last words, but once dry I've never had loose flock floating about Keith
