  1. four words getting multiplied
  2. Does anyone have access to this document or plans? I have the Mick Bell plans 006. 007 and 166 but thy only shows the bodywork and not a detailed view of the chassis and transmission arrangements. It would really help my project if someone could scan those plans from the manual for me. Cheers, Mike

  5. Hi Dave, Ah! I remember that model from decades ago and seem to remember it being a bit hollow and flimsy. Nontheless, that could be a workable option; cheers. If you, or anyone else, remembers where the magazine article was then I would like to hear about it. Hello John, I hadn't even thought of that and it could be a very good idea indeed. I shall make some overtures to AA and see if anything similar can be done. With regard to scratchbuilding parts, such as the chassis etc., I have just seen a manual online that contains the two pages of diagrams below, which is just what I need. The manual is a bit expensive for me, at £34 + shipping, especially for just two pages. Does anyone have this book? If so, could the plans pages be scanned please? I'm quite happy to pay for that service and it would really help me to get started on the scratchbuild. cheers, Mike
  6. If not a complete model, does anyone know of someone that produces the cab in 1:35? I could probably scratchbuild the rest. cheers, Mike
  7. I am trying to find a 1:35 scale Bedford RL but the only one I can see is the Accurate Armour version. That does look to be a beautiful model but it is way out of my price range. Anybody know of any other producer that does this vehicle to 1:35 scale? cheers, Mike
  8. True, the only really good finish is with the setting at Best and Glossy Photo paper. Like you BK, I've had very good results with those settings. I usually seal the printed decal sheet with Decal Bonder Spray. it provides a nice, level protective cover. cheers, Mike
  9. If you enlarge the image, you will see that they are at a T junction, note the last guy on the left is running out from the street on the left - the pavement/sidewalk stops just short of the guy; signifying a junction. Also, note the traffic lights. Mike
  10. Hi folks, yes, not being an avid aircraft follower, this looked like a new design and something, hopefully, that might get produced in kit form. cheers, Mike
  11. Up, Up and Awwwwwaaaaaaayyyyy
  12. I think it just member's replacement for "I'd rather not say". Or, they have put a cryptic clue with the intention of us trying to identify where they live? I'm still trying to work out where "south of La La Land" and "in the target area" are. Mike

  14. I've just seen an advert for the Takom 1:35 scale BV.206S and would like to know if the track assemblies, of the front and rear cabs, are the same for the earlier BV.206 and possibly the previoius BV.202 versions? I'd like to do a build of the earlier version. I should be OK scratchbuilding replacement bodywork but the track and wheel assemblies could be a problem. cheers, Mike
  15. I haven't reached the stage where I can distinguish a Discover from a Defender yet; however, I am looking forward to when I progress onto those. I get even more confused when I see WMIK and Snatch etc, they all look like Defenders to me. Mike
  16. Hello Mark, I have only just come across your thread on the Land Rover, mainly as I have only recently taken an interest in building Land Rover kits, and the finish on yours is something I would like to aspire to. Great work! Mike
  17. You could add an enclosed cab, as in this view. There is a heavy haulage version as seen here Mike
