Austin FX4

Just trying to get a feel for 1/24 scale and yes, this is the shambolic revell london taxi kit a.k.a. Austin FX4 (it's basically a re-release of a '60s toy, there is still the box for the battery and on/off switch molded under the rear seat. Shocking I know, but then it is a cheap kit.) That's the interior done, all of it.... Attached File  image.jpg   117.22KB   31 downloads Attached File  image.jpg   122.41KB   30 downloads


1/16 30s Morgan Threewheeler Minicraft

So here goes, this is how far I've got. Not built anything for over 20 years. Got married to my wife in Malvern (England), that's where these threewheelers are still built, which is why I went for this kit. I also like the fact that details like the frame and engine etc will be on display. Also there's not many decals for me to mess up. I'm going for a not so glossy look, an aged instead of a weathered look.

Constructive comments welcomed, but I appreciate those kind of comments probably aren't likely considering my lack of skill. That said any defects are down to the lack of my skills and obviously not down to the quality of this kit or the tools used. :)[attachment=34270:image.jpg][attachment=34272:image.jpg]
