  1. Count me in. I've got plenty of choices for this one., mostly American cars.
  2. I'm still in. I was disappointed that this didn't get through this year.
  3. I bought a few things at Telford over the weekend. A member of IPMS Northern Ireland posted a list of kits he wanted to sell on another forum that I'm a member of, so I bought these, which included a rare Aurora 1/32 Rover BRM.

  4. I'm not sure what 'Selection model' means but the kit includes figures of the girl, a robot and a teddy bear.
  5. Although I had a few candidates in the stash already I picked up a few more at Telford. P1060028 by timothy jones, on Flickr
  6. Unless anything's changed in the last few minutes there are six GBs covered by four votes fighting for the last four places.
  7. There hasn't been much progress since the last update but I've got the body primered. P1050988 by timothy jones, on Flickr After wet sanding the primer the inside of the body got a couple of coats of Rover Vermillion from a Halfords rattlecan to replicate the colour of the interior of Dale's car. P1050989 by timothy jones, on Flickr At this point I thought I'd try the decals, so I painted the bonnet/hood and tried the Bass Pro Shops logo, which broke up into several pieces. As I had a spare set in the kit I coated the other sheet with some liquid decal film and, after giving it time to dry, I tried again. This time it sat in the water for half an hour before it decidedto come off the paper.... in several pieces. So now I've got an aftermarket set on the way from Mike's Decals in the US.
  8. I've added my vote as I picked up an Airfix Beaver at Telford over the weekend.
  9. That would be a Tragedy. At the moment four out of the six GBs that I voted for are above the line so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they get through.
  10. Time to drag this up from the depths of page three. So far I've got the basic hull together and assembled the base, which has been given a coat of grey from a Poundland rattlecan. P1050960 by timothy jones, on Flickr P1050961 by timothy jones, on Flickr It's gone together well so far so hopefully this'll be a quick build.
  11. This was built from the box but instead of using the supplied paints I used Tamiya Mica Red and black on the body and Hu62 Leather and satin black on the interior, which is very well detailed. Everything fitted well with no fettling or filler needed.

P1050943 by timothy jones, on Flickr Modern hypercars and 1/43 scale aren't my usual go to subjects when it comes to car models but a new car kit from Airfix doesn't come along every day so I thought I'd see what it was like. I'm pleased that I did as it's an excellent kit and hopefully Airfix will add more to the range in future.
