  3. Some more from the archives... The Mercer was completed at the start of 2006, and the Bugatti that summer. Both were built straight from the box and I still have them although a few repairs are needed due to their size and several house moves... The Mercer went together very easily, but painting all those black stripes took a lot of care and patience. The Bugatti however was an utter pain, as the floorpan / wings wouldn't sit in the right place on the chassis, and also the bodyshell was badly warped which caused issues with both the fit of the doors and also of the body to the floor / wings. At one point, just when the body and doors were all fitting correctly, the model took a plunge and rolled off my workdesk. The impact then snapped the already much straightened and thus very delicate B pillar as well as one of the C posts around the wheel arch. I managed to repair them, but the joins are quite visible. I nearly gave up on this body, which is the Binder Coupe de Ville (a poor copy of the Coupe Napoleon) in favour of turning it into the Esders roadster... The Mercer is not a small model - however it is dwarfed by the Royale! Compared to1:24 models... And completed. In addtion to all the doors opening (hence the body rigidity problems) even the trays on the division are hinged... In this pic, the door hides the mangled B post - once cemented in place, the division was holding that area together. Unlike the Mercer, which was a pleasure to build (& thus why I bought the Bugatti kit from the same series) I think the Royale was one of the few models I was really glad to finish & just have out of the way. It turned out ok in the end, and certainly looks good as shelf model in the display cabinet but I'm not sure I would want to build another.
  4. Having been on here for a while now, I thought that I should actually post up some of my models. I had built a few kits as a child and some as a student (only two survived intact, but several have found useful homes in my spares box). However, these two date from 2005, when I got back into the hobby as I recovering from surgery for a series of operations for skin cancer and needed something to occupy my time. Whilst I have listed them as Heller, both were Airfix reboxes. Both built straight out of the box, bodyshells spray painted with Halfords rattle cans (although the blue on the Bugatti's body was actually the bare plastic...) and Humbrol enamels used for the rest. No BMF used - all that chrome trim on the Mercedes body was included in the kit. I don't have any better or more recent pics, as both are a bit damaged now, following several house moves and so are awaiting repairs. At the time, I had not found any scale modelling forums or magazines, so a lot of novice mistakes were made with both (e.g. fogged headlights, which will also be fixed at the same time). Heller kits often seem to get a lot of flack, however I really enjoyed building both of these, and the experience did not put me off building more models, or from buying pretty much the rest of Heller's classic / vintage car range! Anyhow, I hope you like them, and I'll try to dig out some more pics of my other builds.

  9. Probably one of the hardest kits I've ever built. The level of detail is fantastic, especially around that complex engine bay, but sometimes it's more ambitious than the toolmakers could live up to. The body shell out of the box is pretty flimsy, with "working" front bonnet and engine cover, so I glued them in place to help straighten out the main body piece. Full build WiP, with all the gory details, here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234977163-bugatti-eb110-revell-124/ bestest, M.
