  1. Nice work, its hard to chop a bug and keep the shape, you managed it
  2. An unfortunate brand placement on a van. The van is a long wheelbase mercedes sprinter. The brand is The Ace Horse. It has a sliding door on both sides and one side is fine, the other would probably earn me a ban, lol
  3. with the older stuff your probably going to have more luck on the larger wheel sales sites. I know theres one for aircooled vws but i dont think i've seen one for muscle cars. There was one for tri 5 chevies that might have been the same guys as the vw one. you'll probably have more luck just typing the car and wheel into a google image searches though
  4. that a type 4 engine. you would be better starting with the engine from the revell t3 camper/bus kits
  5. https://www.mototechnique.com/ferrari-250-gto a google search for farrari 250 gto chassis brings up a load of bare chassis pics in various stages of dismantling/reassembly
  6. Theres around 40 tracks, but some have more than one version. The tracks that have been carried over have a few changes to them as well and some are gone completely. There doesn't seem to be as many cars this time but maybe the missing ones will come back in one of the updates. The biggest change is the gameplay, its much improved and wet has got more realistic. driving through puddles will make you aquaplane sometimes but not others, and it wont necessarily send you the same way each time. Theres a lot less german cars this time but again they may come back, or even appear in the second hand section. Theres more modifying/tuning set up options too. The biggest downside is having to be online to achieve anything, if your not online it doesn't count and the online multiplayer needs an extra cost playstation membership which is pretty poor on a seventy quid game. If you can swing a second hand ps4 and a copy of gt7 I dont think you'll regret it
  7. Just wondering if any gran turismo 7 players want to set up our own races? I have the same user name on there as i do here. It works on both ps4 and ps5 so either console can be used
  8. It looks to be a 53/4 chevy. The top of the doors are a little different at the front edge than the olds, having a more pronounced widening below the window. I think the revell 53 chevy delivery might be a good starting point and less work than the olds around the headlights and grille area
  9. our tow trucks dont lift the cars, we mostly flat tow so the tow eyes are needed here. although most recovery companies use sliding flat decks now
  10. around here we're aflicted with the most dangerous and oblivious form of pedestrians. we call them wombles but most places call thm tourists. they dont have any sense of self preservation instinct. they will happily step out in front of cars for that one perfect photo. they'll walk into businesses like its a tourist attraction and their allowed to be there. to stop them getting on my work boat, we use a wet paint sign cos the staff only one obviously didn't mean tourists. theres a liner every day this summer (270 carrying at least 3500 each) and at least 4 people a week will get hit by cars
  11. Its not so much about driver ability, how many times have you seen some idiot pedestrian paying more attention to their phone than surroundings end up one or two steps away from a darwin award. it doesn't matter how good a driver you are if someone steps out a couple of feet in front of you
  12. The audi is available for pre order now, i have a couple ordered and i can see the e90 ending up in the stash too
  13. I saw one of the 2022 hyundai ioniq 5 in the supermarket carpark today. It stood out from the other cars without having to put an ugly grille on the front. It was quite an attractive futuristic looking car and even in gray like every other car it stood out for the right reason imo. I had to go online to find out what it was when i got home. obviously this is just my opinion but its been a long time since a car stood out for looking good different or even just standing out
  14. just pump a little out of the pen and use a brush, it seems to work better but it dries fast so only put a little out at a time.
  15. It looked like it did Snake also, what are the red flashing lights in the background shots. They dont seem to be car lights as they aren't moving
  16. Just watching the episode now. the noises tricia was making inside the car were awful to hear.
  17. My worst was bmw e21 3 series. it looked ok until i put it on jackstands and they went through the floor. If i wasn't out from under it to answer the phone i wouldn't be here now
  18. that other burt movie, with the red trans am about a stuntman. the name is slipping me just now.
  19. I find the 2mm seems to be easier to control but mostly i just pump a little out of the pen and use a brush. You have to work quick with it but i think it works better with less chance of missing little bits. If you do miss a bit with the pen or brush you need to leave it for a week before touching it up or else it'll no look right.
  20. The cat finally did a pee. He is very lucky he did as he was due to be put down in the morning because of not peeing. Its all due to some nerves that run through the cats pelvis that control peeing and if its not working they just dont go and die painfully from poisoning so it was the only kind thing to do. thankfully he's going ot be ok and they can oporate on his pelvis on monday. I think he's used a more than one life this time.
  21. netflix should be in the app store
  22. I think its down to hand done art having flaws that somehow add to the art. digital tends to not have those flaws. maybe the flaws are what gives it flavour. I'm not sure if flaw is the right word but I'm sure you know what i mean, its something intangible. sorta like an extra layer to the art that was unplanned
