    Not a bad start, interesting idea to swap the cars between the drivers. Guaranteed level playing field.
  2. The actual tyres were painted through a stencil so they would have been a little fuzzy in places.
  3. Yes, the stencils only really work with an airbrush or spray can. Tape the stencil to the tyre with masking tape, making sure to cover the rest of the tyre and a couple of light coats of matt white will make the tyres looks fantastic. Regards, Stuart
  4. It looks like they have got wet and then dryed out leaving some with parts attached to the backing sheet. The spray masks available is probably the best way to go. Something like this: https://www.hiroboy.com/120_Goodyear_Eagle_Tyre_Stencil_Template--product--7786.html
  5. Very good result, sort of a super dreadnought.
  6. Please excuse me if I'm stating the obvious, but do you know the Goodyear tyre decals are printed backwards and applied completely different to normal decals? The decals should be on the thin clear sheet and applied to the tyre dry, then wetted and the sheet removed leaving the decal. Apologies if I've got the wrong end of the stick. Cheers, Stuart
  7. The modified airframe does not require a brand new type certificate, most aircraft types evolve like this over time.
  8. The last show was a bit of a damp squib on the public days, a lot of the military and civil aircraft had left by the weekend. I think the trade says have been driving the show for the last few years.
  9. The body really came out great, glad to see the decals were still usable even after 40 years or so.

    I was pretty gutted to hear about this, I've listened to Jeremy for years on radio 4 in shows like the Newsquiz and I'm sorry I haven't a clue. You will be missed Mr Hardy.
  11. Just spotted the pre coloured version on Hobby Search for an eye-watering £111. Once import is factored in around £150, perhaps a bit too rich for my taste. Cheers, Stuart.
  12. Really interested to see the reissue of the Protar Renault RE23 and the new Alfa Romeo 8C, both very welcome releases. Stuart
  13. Yeah, these Entex/Eidai/Grip Porches are a real Grail kit these days, they go for around £600 on ebay. I’ll be watching with interest and I’d be interested to see if the kit decals are still good after all these years. Cheers, Stuart.
  14. Interesting, bigger is better in my book.
