  1. Hi all more work on the Cobra.

    I decided to ditch the carbs (too much wrong with them )

    The kit comes with fuel injection as an option I thought I would go with that, tbh a don't know which is worse, still I'm stuck with it now, hopefully I can improve on what the kit supplied (still won't be anything like accurate but maybe look interesting.

  2. OK 2 more coats of stain (one more I think would do it)

    Got the inside stained, got the electrics in.

    And importantly somewhere to hang the dressing gowns

    Our friend is coming round tomorrow (he owns a flooring business)

    To put some 1/4 inch ply on the floor and half way up the wall then cover it with vinyl. 

  3. Well they're done, given time I could have spent ages on them but they've got to fully cure then I've got to pack them back in the game and wrap it up.

    I'm pleased I got them done in time and I think to a standard an 8 Yr old will appreciate (even if she is a real brain box and way ahead of all the other kids in her class) seriously you should see her school reports (I'm especially proud of the statement of her school head saying "Megan's manners are impeccable"

    That girl is awesome and so kind.

  4. This is as far as I got before rain stopped play, looking forward to tomorrow.
    There was a bit of swearing involved doing the door frame, I was holding 2 bits together and screwing at the same time (with a cordless screwdriver) and I mast have had so of the skin of my finger in-between the 2 bits of wood and when they pulled together they squashed that skin (that was very painful.

  5. I could really get into this, I have to keep reminding myself this is for an 8 year old and she won't appreciate subtle shading and weathering, oh how I would love to go to town on those wolves (I'm calling them wolves I don't know if that's what they are) I could take the seam lines out but I'm on a tight schedule, and anyway they are cleverly molded where the creatures are stitched together (a lot of kit manufacturers could take lessons from the way these are molded I've only found 1 release pin mark and unless you were looking for it you wouldn't see it.

  6. Hi all well I'm quite enjoying this. In the game play and the instructions there are pictures of the 6 main characters but not much of the protagonists which is why there are so many different colours of the other characters (other people are having the same problem as me) so I've decided any I can't find official colours of I'm going to do as colourful as possible. 

    I've got to say it's quite a morbid game the characters (even the goodies) are quite gothic.
