  1. as i remember the only thing to worry about the Kat kit is not making a mess when you attach the screen
  2. one snake out of the paint shop, mounted on the chassis
  3. i dont see how the smaller shows would work either.....ones like sword and lance at darlo, or the northern model show or the one at southwell come to my mind as they are ones i frequent........how could you introduce social distancing in small venues?......even one way systems wouldnt really work..........would punters, or vendors, or even people displaying want to wear a mask all day?........and it would only take one selfish twunt not to for people to turn on them......its hot enough in these places as it is

    no, no and no 😁
  6. I spent time in the RAF..........dislike building aircraft (i shot them down for a living lol) i worked in the automotive industry for 10 years and love doing cars currently work in a train manufacturing plant and hate the sight of the bloody things! lol
  7. now this is the sort of thing manufacturers should be doing........not endless spitfires/me109/panthers/shermans/etc etc love to see more modern stuff too.....and things like construction machinery....there is very little out there
  8. yes.......and no cos as this is a S/C it came with just the over rider brackets for racing, but a lot of the S/C were converted for road use so never got proper bumpers/overriders added anyway ive seen plenty of pics where theres nothing.......been removed so theres just a hole, looks quite clean

    so since the spit is on the back burner, and elsewhere ive been roped into a BoB GB id thought id start this
  10. just realised its a series 1............want one even more now
  11. bought this kit ages ago, never got round to it cos i never fancied tackling the decals of either of the options but i thought it was time to have a go but i was looking at the sprues and spotted something.......theres parts thats not required to build the racers on the box.................windscreen surround and number plate holder........so i figure it must be possible to build a road going version.....the usual trick of one basic kit makes for multiple boxings.......ive looked on scalemates and the only cobra kit that Revell made with a windscreen was a dragster type with a hard roof, but its different to this one...............however, Monogram did a road going car that looks very very similar, so i expect there was a swop over that dosnt show up on scalemates..........and if im not doing a race car i dont have to use the decals..........or do it in blue or green! this might all go horribly wrong....we shall see

    well......its on hold to the time being......considering its 'new tool' its not the best of kits.....people have told me of its faults and i have found all of them!......nothing joins together nicely cos the locating pins are too big for the holes (simple fix to just cut the off but this sort of fault shouldnt exist) and the canopy/screen fit is awful! been carving at it to reprofile it but still not happy......ive actually ordered a replacement so waiting for that before progressing
  14. whats the kick off date for this GB?
