  1. Hi Roy

    im building the Pocher Star of India Rolls and have found your build log very informative.

    would you know what size the 72323-519 screws are as there was not enough of them in the kit and I need to obtain extras.

    Pocher Rolls Royce Phantom Torpedo

    I bought all of my Pocher kits - about 7-8 of them in all - on UK Evilbay except for the Merc (in my stash still) which I bought from Pocherparts which is also UK. Roy.

    Ferrari 250 GTO #3505 Brands Hatch 1962

    There is a photo in the Haynes 250 GTO manual on page 28. It states the car is at Brands Hatch 6th Aug 1962. The number is 76, on a white roundel. Roy.

    Absolutely mind boggling stuff. It's going to be a masterpiece.

    A big Jaguar - again

    Eyeballs starting to go fuzzy now. Throttle linkages and more wires etc added. Time to look at bigger bits for a while methinks. Roy.

    E Type Jaguar 1/8 partwork - RESUMING

    If you subscribed originally, you should have had an email about the upcoming release - now March 15th nationally. If you still have your original sub number, call DeAg and say you still want to get the kit. You will get the first 5 issues FOC. Here's the new DeAg page - contact info is there. https://www.deagostini.com/uk/collections/build-jaguar-e-type/ Roy.

    A big Jaguar - again

    I glug red at times too Pete... The engine is now in, and some of the wiring and plumbing has been connected. Lots more to add, but the front 'picture frame' needs to go on next. If anyone wants to know anything, please ask. Roy.

    Yes - confirmed on the DeAg forum. April 2017 for the US.

    Alfa Romeo Coupe Elegant 1/8

    Under red, I only ever use white primer. It gives the red a real 'punch'. Mind you, whatever you decide I'm sure it will look great.

    A big Jaguar - again

    This particular C Type is one of the earlier cars with enormous H6 SU carbs. The inlet manifold is equally peculiar so I had to scratch it from tube, flat sheet, small nuts and filler... I nobbled the SU float chambers from a Revell kit and made the mug-sized bowls from tube and sheet. The plug leads are in and the engine will be fitted to the car next. Roy.

    BTTF DeLorean 1/8 (Eaglemoss Partworks)

    It's part of the fun adding exta bits though. It makes the end result more personal and individual. However detailed any kit is, there's always room for improvement even if its just weathering, adding washes to the engine area or whatever. Mind you, even built OOB, these things are pretty amazing.

    BTTF DeLorean 1/8 (Eaglemoss Partworks)

    If you build them totally OOB, they aren't 'too' challenging. However, there's scope at this scale to go potty with extra detailing. I've built a couple of these huge car partworks although I like to save up all the parts and then build it at the end. Depending on far you go with extra's they can be very immersive. My Aston DB5 received a full leather interior, carpets, loads of engine detailing and new hand made Borrani wheels. Like any kit, add what you wish.

    BTTF DeLorean 1/8 (Eaglemoss Partworks)

    It's actually 1/8 scale - around 24" long. Yes, they are mega-expensive in the long run, but they are also awesome superbly detailed kits. I'm currently subscribing to this one, the E Type Jaguar and the Shelby Mustang. If you're tempted - jump in! Roy.
