Incredible work on the canopy. You seem to have really captured the feel of how one should look. Can't wait to see it under some paint! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Kind regards,

Stix

Stunning job on the canopy. It was well worth doing the vacforming.

Hi Richard

 

Had a serious mojo block when I dropped the Bedford TM last year at Dundee ! Just got around to putting it back together again so I am about to get started on the KFS Bedford MK and hopefully scratchbuild an UBRE pod for the back of it !

 

I have a lot of info compiled and just have to get my bottom in gear again !

 

Loving your amazing attention to detail

 

Nigel

Well, what can I say....!!! Super work, looks just perfect to me. Loving the canvas bow clamps and the tiny chain on the bow brackets.

Glad the photos were of use. You've certainly done them justice! Can't wait to see how the hood clamps turn out...

A magnificent job Richard, could be photos of the real article instead of a model.

 

Thank you very much Julian, screwed up on the painting of the canopy, :sad: so out came the oven cleaner, removed what I had done now it is back getting primed again :smile:.

Holy S**t  I would probably have serious mojo block as well Nigel, glad you were able to put it back together again, man you spent alot of time on it.

So you are going to do a KFS Bedford, he does some great work hope to see a WIP

Thanks for your kind words on the Jeep hope to have it finished by the weekend.

Hi Keith, thanks very much again for taking all those pictures it sure did help, glad you like it, have tried to get as much detail into it as poss, could have done more but need to get on with the Matador, you say you cant wait until you see the hood clamps, I would like to see them to have had mental block on how to make them :headbang: , could you give me some dimension will be making them out of brass

 

Not much to show but have been doing a bit of detail under the hood

Such wonderful work ... every time I check the updates I'm left with my jaw on the floor in a pool of dribble. Love the canopy and the method used to create it.  I was wondering if you was going to make on, and thought you may whip out some canvas and a miniature sewing machine and whisk one up ..... but this looks as good if not better :D 

 

Keep up the astonishing work :popcorn:

 

Cheers

Chris
