    Hi all here is the next installment       superb kit, you have to watch the instructions though they would have you install the front suspension back to front also the rear suspension too high, its ok if you are aware but the stearing is a bit of a problem if you follow the instruction ( its ok as its all held together with screws so you can change it, but if you know in advance you can avoid the problem, the detail on the engine is simply superb I highly recommend this kit, as has been said it is one of the best packaged kits I've had (they have released a new 1/12 Fiat 800 its on my get list but at 143 quid will have to wait a while)

    Hi all well here is a tiny update I think I've hidden the damage from the masking fluid with a couple of strategically placed hippy flowers

    Hi all well here is the next offering I, have had a bit of an accident (trying to cut corners) instead of masking it up with tape I used masking fluid and its reacted with the paint (I think when i put the light bezels on and the VW badge on the front it wont notice much)

    HI all, ok so I sorted the chrome out but putting the candy colour over the top seems to have changed the chrome effect (I think in a quite pleasing way) I'm going to do a couple more coats of the cherry red candy then remove the masking then mask up the cherry red and do the chrome and then (cant decide on orange or emerald green candy on the top) personally I'm looking forward to see how it looks, I think It may be better than I visualized originally.

    Hi all well here is tonights update, to all you Alclad 2 experts out there whats hapening here (it looks more like matt silver than chrome and it rubs off with your fingers) (the few small areas which do look like chrome are hard and dont seem to rub off) I used their black microfiller primer then their gloss black base coat then used the Chrome, do I need to give a second coat of the chrome or what?

    My builds are only good reference of how not to do something, sad but true.

    HI all my next bit of light relief after the Citroen
    this kit has really strange build order in that the body is built round the interior which is ok if you're spraying it normally but the paint job I intend will have some feathering so I need to make sure it will all line up correctly when put together so( I'm hoping this will work ok) I've tacked all the body together so I can spray the body as a whole, thus making sure it will all line up. I will be trying a couple firsts on this kit Alclad 2 and candy colours so wish me luck.
