The 1/12 Mustang I sold to Andy J has been replaced by something much smaller but with considerably more wheels.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

At the car boot sale this morning I picked up an Airfix Quick Build VW Beetle.

Ready built (It's a Lego clone basically) the rear bumper was missing so I got it for just 1.50 GBP.

The plan is to rebuild it as aย more interesting Beetle.

Tamiya 1/12th NSR 500, got it completed but screwed up the decals๐Ÿ™ so it won't be getting posted on BM.ย 

That's a real shame can you get aftermarket decals for this kit ๐Ÿค”

It was my first attempt on a model bike, I'll just keep it as it is to remind me where I went wrong for future bike builds. Wasn't too expensive so no great loss.ย

To be fair to you the NSRs are really tough ones to do, especially as your first. So many decals...

Out of all the kits I've built I'd put that in my top 3 favourites.Ease of build, detail and looks are all high.๐Ÿ‘

Lovely model. Got one in the stash so hopefully I can do it justice like that. Getting around to doing it is the problem at the moment.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Well I've found and purchased a Ducati kit I hadn't seen before.....it just sort of whispered to me...teased me if you like till my resistance was broken. Just shows what can happen when you innocently go looking for a certain type of kit and this pops up ๐Ÿ™„

Ok it's not a Ducati but unusually for me i succumbed to temptation. Still it's a mighty fine looking kit methinks ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘

The Chancellor made me buy it."Model Shop To Help Out" or something like that.๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜€

ย 

Upon opening looks a nice simple, quick build type of thing. No engine or super detailing. Any nasty surprises awaiting me?

Bought my 2nd bike (Yamaha VX1000 Virago which hopefully I can do a better job on than my first attempt on a NSR500.

I've sat on this bike in a showroom and TBH if I was buying one now this or something like this is what I'd get.

ย I can get both my ย feet flat on the ground comfortably instead on tip toes. Suits my wee short legs perfectly, alas at 70yrs old I can't see me getting one now so a 1/12th scale will have to do.๐Ÿ™„

Not kits but Nail Art decals. I have used these in various builds as they are about 1/24 to 1/25 scale size. Ice Creams/Palm Trees and soda/lemonade, Pepsi/Coca Cola/Fantaย logo's. Ice cream Truck/Cream Cycle Trike.ย Priced around ยฃ1.35 to ยฃ1.75 on ebay UK.

I finally managed to get the Doyusha Aston Martin DB5 and for what felt like an absolute steal of a price.
