    A special and a hotrod here are quite different animals.
    No-one who wants to stay this side of the daisies would attempt to hotrod an Austin 7,

    no, no no, ...........cars for car forums, aeroplanes for aeroplane forums and never the twain shall mix, ..............unless its an Aerocar,

    Thankyou for the welcomes

    Thanks for the welcome guys.

    I'll certainly share any photos I have with anyone. I'll add any to the 'walk-around' reference section when I think they'll be useful.
    I must get used this forum first and see how it flows.

    This is no1 son playing in our vintage racing car; a 1930 Austin 7 Ulster;

    [posting the picture is also a bit of a check to see if the way I do it on other forums does here too]
    and Yes; plans are afoot to model this is 1/32 and 1/24th

    My preference is caustic soda solution. Takes 'chrome' and varnish off in about 5 to 10 minutes, occasionaly and rarely perhaps 20 minutes max.

    Greetings from the Far Side
    I found a link to this forum on the modelling forum 'Britmodeller'. I thought I would come along and join in as I find I'm doing more and more cars and fewer aeroplanes. Amongst the first models I built were a number of cars, so I'm sort-of going back to the beginning.
    I've choosen to model cars in a most unusual scale - 1/32, however i have been known to do the occasional 1/24 [1/25] and down to 1/87. Whatever scale suits my mood or needs.
    I prefer the old type cars, Vintage we call them, Antique to you. Why? because for the last 25 years I've been in a motorcar club which races & competes in pre-WW2 cars, and for over 30 years I was a journalist/photographer specialising in pre-1972 cars.
    Presently I live in a small seaside town called Donaghadee, in County Down, Northern Ireland. I was born in Chicago and my early years were there until I moved to N.I. nearly 50 years ago.
    So, thats me and what I model.
