From the bay earlier this evening perhaps?

 

No, this one was Amazon's Black Friday sale and took about two weeks to get here.

Yeah right...  😁

 

Absolutely - my credit card company told me that my reward points were about to expire and I had to get them spent before January. What else was I meant to do with them? :coolio:

Early Christmas present... I want to do a street version of this. I already have different wheels, just need an interior as there's only 1 seat and it's the race seat. Unfortunately I don't have a large spare box for cars, so maybe I'll scratch the front and rear seats.

Noticed yesterday on Spotmodel that USCP are doing a full street car interior for it.

Go on, let the moths out of it....!! 🤣

 

Seriously, if nothing else I think that the photos of the parts will give you really good references for scratchbuilding an interior, as USCP have done the staring at pics of real cars for you!! :)

Hey @JeroenS, that's a nice purchase and a good kit.  Nice idea to convert it to a street version.  I would like to have a transkitranskit to convert into a station car

Just went into town to pick up some supplies (we have a good little shop in town), and before I knew it this was in the bag as well.

I think this will be my entry for this year's BlitzenBuild, should be fun.

Noticing that it's Level 5, I think you're going to have a very busy day. I presume you have a way of locking all family members out of your modelling room? 😉

I have a few tricks up my sleeve, not to worry!

I got one a few months back . It's a rather simplistic kit , having the same amount of detail as a normal 1/25 kit , just 3 times bigger . With a few details added though , it should look pretty impressive when built .

Yes I had done my research so the lack of details did not come as a surprise. As you say adding the missing details you want shouldn't be too difficult at this scale.

 

I was mostly worried about the bonnet. I have seen other people get a pretty badly warped one but mine was not that bad.

A friend had real one. Dark blue with blue pin-striping. It was 'blue printed' and it went like stink.  I was allowed to drive it occasionally

So I thought I'd like to try the Airfix 1/43 Jaguar E-type and I found one on ebay, packaged together with an Airfix 1/32 Aston Martin DBR9

I bid on them and won them for £15.49. (inc post) Not bad for two kits

BUT . . . before they arrived I was in my storage unit and I found I'd already bought the 1/43 Jaguar and I have two of the AM DBR9!  :doh:

Bad record keeping

Something I can't understand...

I don't have one model more than once...no kidding...(kiting🤣)....but I wonder why I can use so many identical same parts for so many models...

😇...especially wheels and something like that...and...ok, some Minis and other icons...but that doesn't count...these items were purchased for plans,  ideas, madness, or....

Don't laugh.....
