  1. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    its neep and tatties mashed together (turnip/swede with mashed potatoes) I'm not surprised with the haggis though, its not allowed in the us, (apparently its classed as offal) yet you can purchase chicken thats been washed with bleach for some reason, lol. And haggis is awesome IMO. If you are ever in scotland you should try it, as long as its made with a sheeps stomach cos otherwise its just a lie/fake news, lol (Thats just a joke before anyone gets twisted over it)
  2. 1960 Impala lowrider

    Wow, thats a work of art
  3. I have to agree with 89AKurt, the tamiya is the one you want
  4. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    haggis and clapshot with a creamy peppercorn sauce
  5. Very cool, I'm surprised no-one has kitted this era of the vw commercials
  6. What did you see on the road today?

    The cord that andy saunders customised (it was very rusty) was found in yorkshire too.
  7. What did you see on the road today?

    saw a nearly immaculate foreign registered (if it was local it would have returned to dust by now) volvo 240d estate on the way home from work. It had either been really well cared for or a recent restoration
  8. Kids today...

    Some of that is down to the younger generation being priced out of the older cars. How many younger people can afford to drop 20k on a project car that needs a lot more money spent on it just to be drivable, when they can pick up a running/driving civic for 5k and have an on the road project just like the guys did with their customs and rods in 50s and 60s. They will probably put just as much time, effort and cash into them in the long run but for the majority of them they need to be able to drive to work on monday morning. On the modelling side a lot of the warhammer/citadel type builders are now moving towards the more kit like figures and the products they have for them are great for weathering out type of builds. I know I've been stocking up on their paints
  9. Not had any time to build this month, hope to have an update next month
  10. This is my entry for the build off. My plan is to make the trailer a flatdeck and change the tyres for italeri's nice rubber ones in place of the 2 piece plastic ones in the truck kit. I think it will be mostly box stock with some weathering. I'm not sure yet if I'll use the roof spoiler. I do know the first thing I will be doing is repairing the front panel of the truck cab as it has broken at the lower windscreen corners but both bits are there so it should be a simple enough fix. I'll get better pics of the boxes once I return home as these are pretty bad even for me
  11. Cool, it brings to mind the hippie bus vw are restoring
  12. Karmann Ghia Tamiya

    Cool, it was 80s cal look vw's painted like this that got me into cars.
  13. The Pantera WILL have an engine!!

    How about an audi v10 from the r8? it should fit since it was designed to fit in the space of a v8 and its already set up for mid engined.
  14. Karmann Ghia build.....

    sweet
  15. unusual question on dust

    I've recently purchased some ak enamel dust coat stuff for aircraft. I haven't had the chance to try it yet but from some builds i've seen it looks like it works well. Its in the aircraft landing gear packs. You might also find something in the warhammer/citadel type paints or model railway detailing washes
  16. The Charger Squad - Post Pics of your Chargers

    The recent revell kit with a set of aoshima wheels and clearly scale pro charged 528 hemi, slammed as far as it would go. I used the hood with the cut out for panels under the stock hood, then had to cut a hole to get the engine to fit but i kinda like having it barely peeking through. Paint is duplicolour blue pearl over white primer, and some gold detail on the grille and wheels
  17. Z06 Fresh off the drawing board

    Cool, until the last pic i thought it was a drawing
  18. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    got this a couple of days ago so only 2 vw kits left to find, then its on to resin vws
  19. Speaking of smart cars

    I'm not sure of this is the same smart car but when i was at college the cops in aberdeen (scotland) had one as a patrol car. It was probably more for visiting show and schools than any practical cop use. It always made me laugh (with not at) when 2 big cops got out and one road cone filled the boot (trunk). I cant find a pic that will let me share it here
  20. 1966 VW Panel

    thanks folks
  21. I built this a couple of years ago from the hasegawa van. Other than the slight lowering of the front and the paint it is box stock. It is just a simple curbside build but fits in with my Vw collection,
  22. My parent's 1960 VW Beetle

    wow, beautiful work
  23. Taxi!, Toyota NTP10 JPN

    It may be like london where gas/diesel cars have to pay a charge to drive in certain areas, while electric get free. Also the japanese trains are extremely punctual and appologise for being even one minute late and give you vouchers for employers to confirm the train is late (unlike most of the rest of the world where you expect the trains to be late so catch an earlier one). A quick google search on japanese trains will show some surprising facts about them.
  24. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    This arrived this morning, i think it may be a tamiya release of a revell kit as the wheels aren'tlike any of my other japanese kits being 2 pieces opposed to the usual one piece
  25. So it's not a model... but....

    You'd probably be better using bmf instead of the molotowe pens. The first thing thats going to happen is he'll give it a clean and the molotowe will just be ruined
