  1. Beautiful build, Craig. She looks really smart. 10 out of 10 from me. Cheers Richard
  2. Very nice! It would be interesting to see a picture of the original "glue bomb" if you have one to hand.
  3. What a beautiful model! Excellent scratchbuilding skills.
  4. It's not easy to see in the photo but the ladder is on the pavement behind the fire truck. They might have a problem however as it's not going to be long enough - so they will probably need to resort to the idea of tempting it down with a nice bit of Wensleydale! I put the ladder on the ground as it was hiding the tool set and I wanted people to see the various bits and pieces.
  5. Hi everyone International Rescue is the theme for the IPMS 'Beyond The Box' SIG table at the Nationals in Telford this year. The idea behind 'Beyond The Box' is to take a standard kit and turn it into something other than the manufacturer intended, ideally with a fun factor built in. For my build, I decided to take the Airfix 1/12 'Wallace & Gromit' A35 van and turn it into a fire engine, similar to the Morris Minor fire appliance at the Gaydon Motor Museum. This was my starting point. I chopped off the roof, filled in the rust holes and gave it a nice, shiny red courtesy of a Tamiya rattle can. The wiper blades and A35 badge are 3D-printed parts sourced through Shapeways. The bell used to belong to a Lindt chocolate Easter bunny. The stuff in the back is a combination of Tamiya's 1/12 F1 Racing Tools + children's toys + scratch built items. My twist on the International Rescue build theme was to have a cat stuck up a lamp post - in other words, Domestic Rescue. The cat owner is being interviewed by the local press reporter. Wallace is on hand to oversee the rescue operation. The cat like its owner is scratch built using Milliput. If you would like to see the model close up, it will be on the 'Beyond The Box' table at Telford over the weekend of 9/10 November. The table is close to the Airfix stand. Cheers Richard C
  6. Great result - a model with real presence.
  7. Really nice work, Andy - a fantastic result! Cheers Richard
  8. Nicely done and an interesting scheme too. The Matchbox kit still holds its own.
  9. Very nice work, Craig. I do like the colour scheme - the green and red of the Bangladeshi roundels look great against the two shades of grey.
  10. Well done Craig for running an interesting and motivating group build. I enjoyed taking part and building a subject I had not tackled before. Cheers Richard
  11. Very nice work, Fabio. I really like what you have done. The front aerials and the mirrors are an impressive finishing touch.
  12. She's really looking the part, Nigel. What an attractive colour scheme! I agree with Craig (MM), the PrintScale decals aren't the best - I personally wouldn't buy them again. I would like to do another early Canadian machine but in the blue, white & red scheme. There is that version on the PrintScale sheet but I would rather use a sheet from Belcher Bits,
