I built the Matchbox kit many moons ago and had no problems.

I agree!
But then I have a few woody projects that stalled in this stage too so... I have no foot to stand on.

You're right Jairus.  This project came to a grinding halt when the woodgrain vinyl paper panelling started to delaminate!  I put it away, thinking I would get back to it and re-do it with real wood......  but got sidetracked into other builds and dioramas and never did.


My workbench is currently covered in a bunch of other unfinished projects... and I keep starting more new ones!  Sometimes it's just the challenge of finding ways to do things and, once that's achieved, finishing the build gets put on the back burner......


Maybe the recent interest may bring it back out again?  Who knows?

Nice work..... but you may want to consider a handrail around the loft.  It's a long way down!

Looking forward to this one......  Beside building in all other scales (mostly 1/32 scale antiques and classics), I've recently been collecting 1/43 diecasts of unusual cars not available in plastic.  I also have a number of the AMT 1/43 scale kits in my stash, but haven't got around (or got up the courage) to tackle them yet!


Keep us well posted on progress....  I'll be following with great interest.


Love those example pics of built up Torinos... especially the green one.  WOW!

Excellent work..... where have you been hiding up 'til now?
