  1. I'd go with one door open, one closed - as long as you can beat the closed one into submission and make it almost fit....!! As to the hinges if you close one door you'd only have one set to worry about! I think if painted black they'd be fine. Very nice paintjob - cracking colour! As opposed to the 5 year old that does mine...!! Keith
  2. Simply lovely! Beautiful build of a gorgeous looking race car! Top job! Keith
  3. And that's a good choice G, nice classic Tamiya car kit of a lovely car! Only thing you might want to address if it were to bother you is that the kit has a join line where the rear spoiler is attached that doesn't exist on the real one so needs filling if you feel inclined. Look forward to seeing it built! Now back to the latest episode of the Man from U.N.C.L.E....!! Keith
  4. I agree, very nice engine! Interior looks relly good too! Excellent progress! Keith
  5. - doesn't matter, it's still a really nice thing to do for Patch! K
  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one that notices that, none of my model club mates ever seem to! Keith
  7. That was about the average when I looked recently Pete - I couldn't believe it yesterday when someone's asking nearly £50 for old AMT kits - but I guess they're trying to match the prices of re-issued AMT stuff on Hannants...!! Keith
  8. That's excellent Steve - superb build! If it was a bit bigger I'd happily move in! Keith
  9. How kind is that - you're a lucky cat Patch! Keith
  10. Saw one of these things mixing it with all the HGV's and other traffic on the M4 yesterday - it even looked scary from inside our Focus....!! Keith
  11. TBH though thinking about it, I'd like them a fair bit cheaper given most aftermarket decals are now close on £20 a sheet - that would be good!
  12. Tamiya did do a release of the Escort Cossie without decals. It is a good idea - as long as a good selection of aftermarket decals are produced! I don't often use kit decals either! K
  13. Just watch out for custom's charges. I don't know what the rules are now on the amount you can bring in but they used to be quite low. Just always hoped they wouldn't pick up on the parcel! That's always my 'plan' too! Keith
  14. I sold off most of my NASCAR kits (actually to Carkits IRC!) but still have a pile of decals. I recently decided I'd like to build some of the subjects on the sheets so had a look on ebay UK, there were a few AMT and Monogram kits listed but I didn't buy any at the time as I had a few too many other kits 'in progress' at the time. There are some AMT's listed now, but the prices are a bit ambitious IMO https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/220/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=AMT+nascar&rt=nc&LH_PrefLoc=1 There are some better priced Monogram 1/24 here; https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/220/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=AMT+nascar&rt=nc&LH_PrefLoc=1 There's also a more recent manufacturer, Salvinos J R models who I think both rebox other manufacturers kits and also produce their own moulds, but I'm not 100% on that. They recently produced a new generation Mustang. Hannants stock some of their kits; https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?adv=1&product_category_id=&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=363060&product_type_id=&code=+&scale_id=&keyword_search=&setPerPage=25&sort=0&search_direction=0&restore_search=&save_search_active=yes&save_search_name=&save_search= Also on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313&_nkw=salvinos+JR+models&_sacat=220&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=monogram+NASCAR&_osacat=220&LH_PrefLoc=1 Again, prices are too rich for me! It's worth setting up a search for those manufacturers on ebay UK, as there's a fair chance cheaper ones will get listed now and again. HTH Keith
  15. Well, there go your bragging rights....!! K
  16. I didn't even notice that! TBH once I saw what the cars were I didn't look any longer, but I agree, very naughty! I was just relieved there wasn't a Mk2 Escort there...!! Keith
  17. Phew - absolutely nothing of interest there for me, excellent! Keith
  18. Think that's an email address Gary? Keith
  19. Probably the only original bit on ours is the rust....!! Keith
  20. Strewth you must have been shifting...!! Today's spots on the way home from Hampshire after visiting daughter and family - in Alseford a beautiful cream colour with red interior MGB roadster with the shiniest wire wheels I think I've ever seen, shortly after going the other way an immaculate black 1950's Bentley - not really my type of car but it did look stunning. On the M4 all heading the other way - some ugly modern Ferrari, a very bright orange Lambo Huracan and also orange - a Bond Bug! Finally an industrial 0-4-0 loco in Central Electricity Generating Board livery on a lowloader. Keith
  21. Beautiful little Porker, top job again! Keith
  22. Was the central speedo dash used on the last classic Mini's? Or does it and the 'motolita type' steering wheel suggest earlier versions may be planned? K
