    Hi all well the engine is nearly complete, I've added a few more details to the engine bay ( these are purely to add interest and not based on any car) as I said I need an engine bay to add the connections to the engine.

    Hi all here is the next update (those opening doors were a nightmare) there are 2 tiny pins with corresponding holes in the inner door skins which have the hooks for the hinges in the door posts thing is if you put the doorskin in those pins the chrome trim won't align and the door droops so what I ended up doing was using liquid cement on the joins hanging the inner door then putting the outer skin up to it and using clamps to hold them in place till the glue sets.

    Hi all I don't have access to a big American car so have had to loosely, and I mean loosely base this on the biggest car I have access to ( my bosses 340sl merccedes)( would have preferred his rolls royce) I've had to be creative with the measurements and this is very simplified, just a framework tho add suspension struts to and stuff. It is purely to allow me to add some of the many engine connections a couldn't add with the supplied stand. I may not even use this, but and this is a big but, if it looks ok and I can find plans for it maybe I will try to scratch a full 1/6 car to put it in.

    Another update It's really hard trying to make plastic look like metal, all my usual tricks don't seem to be working, need to try some more washes.

    Bit of a catastrophe on this one missus knocked one of the sub assemblies off the bench, i can't find the pe range finder also can't find the bit the crane is held between on the 2 bits that both broke off to say I'm annoyed is an understatement, i was going to try and finish the Oerlikons this weekend, also some of the pe mast stuff is missing or bent (hopefully I can straighten that out. Not sure what else is missing I'm hoping anything else won't notice.
  11. An astonishing amount of detail going into this. Truly outstanding.

    Made a start on the card model They are incredibly strong considering they are only cardboard. How do you weather these card models?
