  1. It does look interesting. It looks like the Egyptian ones where a desert yellow (who'd have guessed?): I suspect that the Egyptians just sprayed over the factory finish green. It doesn't look like a showroom paint job so personally I'd spray over the green rather than start from scratch.
  2. That should keep you busy for a week or two. No. probably just a week.
  3. You don't need to worry here matiepoos, it all looks remarkable to us. Ignorance is bliss.
  4. Oh yes, that's what proper racing cars should look like*. Good things do come out of Coventry. (And they usually stay out. ) * To old farts of course.
  5. WOW! That is remarkable. I've been thinking about making some figures so it's interesting to see the process.
  6. You can't post that and not expect me to investigate further: https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2-italy-corni-half-track/
  7. Had a quick play (have I ever said how fantastic this retirement lark is? ) and there's only a couple which I think work... The photos only really work if they are from ground level and have a natural looking background, otherwise they don't look believable at all. This is the colour version of the last one: Thanks for the suggestion @Vaastav.
  8. Thanks very much everyone who has commented. I've just remembered about Vaastav's suggestion of black and white pics. I'm off to do some playing.
  9. Looks good to me. What don't you like about it?

    I like the Hampden and remember building that kit when I was kid, so looking forward to this.
  11. The seat looks better than some of the kit seats I've seen.
  12. The Jag and the Aston look excellent.
  13. There's quite a lot more detail than I thought there would be.
  14. Very nice finish on the paint work and lovely build overall.
  15. I thought I commented on this build but apparently I didn't. The tonal variation looks really good.
  16. Thanks muchly matiepoos. The b&W photos is a good idea. If I get some time I might post some.
  17. Been stupidly busy doing other stuff, so progress has been slooooooow, but they are all finally done. I won't bore you with the process because it was exactly the same as before – times three….with one small exception. Evergreen do an assorted rod and tube set (item no. 217) which I would recommend for anyone considering doing any scratching. The 3mm tube I used for the road wheels was from this set as it was ideal as the inner diameter was 2mm and the two together looked just about right. When I bought a load of scratchy stuff recently there was a new 217 set included a
  18. Looks a good colour match to me. This one has been a particularly interesting restoration.
  19. Some of those are fantastic! I love the last one.
  20. Hi GWN, Is this the step you mean? If so I'm not sure which wires you are referring to. It does look a bit of a complicated monster, here are some engine photos for other peoples builds in case it helps: https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/builds/it/build_it_4701.shtml https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=61676&p=albums&album=56335 https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=28880&p=albums&album=38113 And some real ones: And finally a video of a build: Hope some of that helps.
