  1. Well I am gobsmacked went in to work today and I was expecting Rolf to offer about 50 quid for the Bentley well he must really like it because he asked how much I spent on it and I told him, with the figures and extras about 130 quid and he gave me,,, I can see it in my hand but still don't believe it 260 quid yes that's right 260 then asked was that enough

  2. Well its out of the spares drawer and put together again. My missus told my boss it was finished and she told her husband so he insisted on seeing it, I told him I was not at all happy with it but he insisted so I fixed it up and showed him, he loved it as did my boss he wants to buy it, I don't know what to charge so have left it to him, he asked how much the kit was and said he will have a think and decide how much. That's fine by me as whatever he pays will go towards another kit.

  3. It certainly is, another British icon I was hoping it would detract from the rubbish build, so it seems it had the desired effect, I was going to try a reflect a London bus or a taxi in the window too but I thought that would be to much.

  4. Hi all, well finally I'm calling this finished.

    I know it's a bit of a let down and a bit disappointing, but its not down to the kit, its down to my modeling, so there it is, I cant do any better so I should be happy with it but i'm not.
  5. Hi all another update, not long left on this build.
    The trouble with all the sprues being in one bag together is that when they knock against each other bits fall off the sprue and you end up with a box full of loose bits. I have discovered that one of the mud guard stays is missing so have had to make one, being a reverse of the one I have it was quite confusing to do but I have managed.

  6. Well I fixed it I filled my revell precision glue pot with super glue then I made a little hole in the air bubble and squeezed the superglue in the hole, then I gradually squeezed the excess glue and air out of the hole. I fixed the decals with a hair drier, I put it on maximum( I figured I had ruined the body anyway so nothing to loose) I heated the decals up then squeezed them flat with some tissue.

  7. luckily he has not paid for it yet, I bought the model and when I showed it to him he said he would buy it when finished. Just makes me look stupid.

  8. Well thanks for following along I dont see my boss's husband buying this now, and I've gone and taken a commission from my boss now I feel guilty now she's paid for the models and I've bought them but I've obviously not got the skills to deliver, I must have been mad to agree. I've ruined the Bentley , I will finish it but it certainly won't be on display anywhere.

    These next three pics show whats gone wrong(yes I know I could get a new body from Airfix and some decals) but to be honest I cant be asked I've lost all interest in it now, I will finish it but just to say its done and get it out the way.
