  1. Whole underside black? Is that to cover up the numerous welds of the floor for the MOT the smother it in underseal?
  2. Ahh yes Brookes and Broad. Usually chasing Jimmy McRae
  3. Saw that 😁 I meant in the thread I said I was in the land of oats and whiskey when we hit 15😁. I love it up there and as a works team we had the best night out for about 8 years in Glasgow last week
  4. Not by me mate I've been thinking there's a problem for some time now
  5. To be honest it didn't look overly busy Duncan from the photos they've just shared online?
  6. I've just had an online discussion with Duncan on this very subject and I think the problem is three or even fourfold 1, there are some people who are club members but have traders accounts and use under the table sales as an income source. This MUST stop. Its not fair on traders. 2, too many shows there is generally 1 show a week from about March to October, and I get that clubs want to hold a show but this saturated calender isn't good for anyone, traders this year have had to choose which shows to attend which will in the end force some to disappear. 3, as a result of what is above people only have so much A, time and B, money and with the average cost of a newly released tool between 40 and 50 quid only so much is going to to be sold, this isn't the traders fault as they have to pay market prices but people aren't spending as much The answer? I think clubs should get together and hold bigger but fewer shows, then traders would get a bigger footfall kit swaps could be organised and people would spend more. Just my thoughts
  7. No. I didn't look back at the Sci-fi group build thread

  16. twin 45's Mate, running through a works exhaust with bilstiens and a Jamex handling pack and Tar-Ox discs with mintex pads. Time for an update as well and I have to say that belkits are about as good as tamiya for fit and finish, flash is non existent and the plastic is so smooth so I started with the interior floor which was painted with Tamiya TS17 Decanted and thinned with Mr levelling thinner then the various bits were done for the floor and foot well, and Belkits give you the choice of LHD or RHD depending on what you want to build (you just drill the holes you want. As the car is French, its left hand drive but there is a different dash, and heater hose for RHD as well and different instructions for this also. then I started on the Dash, Painted flat black with switches and Lights picked out in silver, red or white, I then moved on to the fuses, using a picture from a dutch restored car I got the fuses I hope in the right order either white, red or yellow. with relays picked out in grey. I then used Decals for the dials which performed faultlessly and then used a drop of tamiya clear varnish in the dial faces to simulate glass. onto the seats these are different for driver and co-driver, the co-driver having a grey back and driver in semigloss black. the cushions were then sprayed flat black , and the steering wheel has a semi gloss frame with Matt black rim
  17. This maybe one of special hobby's less well fitting kits? I have found a trend appearing in that their canopies can be a bit interesting fit wise
