      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I got some 4 hole dually rims with tires as well as a couple of 'used/junk wheels' and an ivanhoe lampshade from Dan and was blown away by the quality. the parts and service were top notch. thanks again Dan

    Well corrected, Geoff. I had not considered the inner boot lid skin... hiding the inner lid details. cheers!

    Anyways, it's absolutely outstanding and has inspired me to get back to work on mine, as well as my (non-existent) modelling skills so i can maybe one day worry about the inner boot details at scale myself

    This is fantastic! the work on the door and boot hinges, and the inside of the boot is absolutely amazing.

    The boot board is perfect, the fuel tank looks to be a later model 9gal (common upgrade), but the only thing missing is the details on the inside of the boot lid... there is this type

    and the double skinned (this is what I would go with on the mk1)

    I've been lurking these forums for a couple weeks - just getting into scale models again. I had done a 1:24 (fujimi) scale replica of my 1:1 Mini (I have 3 1:1 minis - one driver, one project, and well... the remains of another).

    I'm building a Mini speedster right now (similar to the minispeed/vmax car) and a stock cooper s from this same kit you're building (edit- oops, no mine are the tamiya kit).

    I am absolutely blown away by your model, thanks so much for sharing
