      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  1. Gas pumps #1, #2, #3, Pop and Ice machines

    Hi Bill, thanks for this, I've got the dimensions from your Need Help post. One of the guys in our club does some pretty good resin casting, such things like WW2 aircraft bomb bay interiors and he's goint to try some pumps for me. I'll probably go for a kit of parts type approach with some flat panels first.
  2. Gas pumps #1, #2, #3, Pop and Ice machines

    Absolutely superb Bill, clever use of materials too. Would you mind sharing the pump dimensions? I'm looking at some simple resin casting of various styles of pumps. I'll be following this thread with interest.
  3. Autoquiz 381 - Finished

    No idea, but I see many different styling influences in that body shape.
  4. Hooper & Co Diorama

    You look as though you could get used to that! I notice a Dresden registered car (an S3?) in the background of one of the shots. That would be a really good drive in one of those.
  5. Sizing Questions

    Good advice there. I'd also recommend you build something, anything really to find out what materials, techniques and tools will suit you best. Even quite small buildings take a lot of effort if you want a decent level of detail.
  6. Hooper & Co Diorama

    Looking good David, hope it gets the recognition it deserves and you enjoy the weekend.
  7. That's a really nice job, nice paint too, At first I couldn't figure out what was going on with those tail lights.

    Good choice, PM sent
  9. 1971 THUNDERBIRD

    Interestmg, these little compacts really do seem to work much better than anything else in 1/25. Your diorama set up is perfect right light, all the shades of green. I love it.
  10. 1971 THUNDERBIRD

    Nice build, that green really suits the car. Good photography too - what did you use for the photos?
  11. 1956 Chevy Bel Air-Badman bash

    That interior looks really good, a very neat build.
  12. Autoquiz 377 - Finished

    I thought exactly the same thing! I can just see it entering the ring, doors falling off, steam coming out and the horn sounding. I've no idea what it is though.
  13. Autoquiz 375 - Finshed

    Wow! Never heard of that one. It looks like a fairground ride.
  14. Foreign Objects Import Auto Repair- WIP

    I did a test shot on an offcut of foamboard to glue some DAS clay. I used spray on carpet adhesive and it worked okay with no effect on the foam, and quick drying time.
  15. Former coffee house in a 1894 Queen Anne

    That is impressive! How tall is the model? Any issues with warping etc?
