  1. To give you an idea of the size, here she is with a standard reference size paint jar! And with a Bandai Vehicle Model Falcon (bottom) and the Hot Wheels Falcon at the top.
  2. Some surgery... This was scary as it’s a one-way trip! Managed to slice my finger. Doh! I have found a replacement net. Just need to work out how to fit it. Then fill it with scavenged star destroyer parts.
  3. I would love to build a kit of this, but it doesn’t look likely that there will be one, so I took a punt on getting the Hot Wheels die cast Speeder from The Force Awakens. It’s pretty poor in many ways, but I’m going to have a stab at making it a bit more realistic. No idea of the scale (1/35?) This is how it looks to start with. The net is awful, there’s a big join and the colour is wrong (I can see that and I’m colour-blind!) Still hoping for a Razor Crest kit. Maybe I’ll see how this works out and get the Hot Wheels one.
  4. I received this Hot Wheels Rey’s Speeder from Amazon. I’m a bit sad that there isn’t a kit version of this (or the Razor Crest) Planning to make it look a bit more realistic. I’ll get a wip going soon.
  5. I agree! Not sure I could afford one (or do it justice)
  6. I noticed that Hiroboy is selling colour-matched paints for the Britten V1000 motorcycle. Does this mean that there’s a new kit on the market? I know that the old metal kit is incredibly rare, so it seems odd that they would make paints for it. Anyone got any theories?
  7. Thanks, I’ll ask a mate to print one for me. It will look good with my Bandai Star Wars vehicle models.
  8. Does anyone know if there’s a kit of the spaceship from the Mandalorian available or planned? It looks like it would be fun to build, and a chance to try out some bare metal foil. Please make one, Bandai!
  9. That’s weird! I’m sure I copied the Lotus link. Sorry!
  10. About £66 from Japan... https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10407651
  11. I agree with both choices of music. I’ve just ordered the updated 2019 version of Eno’s album (with an extra CD to commemorate 50 years), and played The Race for Space today while at work.
  12. Yep, K2RUM. I’ve known Arnie for years (since before he built his first Seven) but don’t see him often as were on opposite sides of the world. I now NEED 300bhp in my Elise! I can do without the brutal gear changes, though!
  13. Hi folks, I have just rescued a Tamiya Lotus Seven that I made at least 30 years ago from my parents loft when I visited the UK this month. I’d like to mod it to make a replica of the Westfield that I built. I fitted a Nissan SR20DE engine (NA) from a Silvia S13 and would like to fit one in the “seven”. All the kits of the Silvia have no engine detail. Does anyone know of a kit or a resin SR20 I could use? IMG_4873.JPG by injidup_auto_art, on Flickr
  14. I was back in the UK recently and went for a quick spin in a Caterham with a Ford EcoBoost and paddle change gearbox. That was fun! He was on the way to have it tuned so I only got the 250hp version, but after the tune it was up over 300hp! From 1600cc! I’ll post pics if anyone’s interested?
  15. Loving your builds (including the Mossie) - keep it up.
