      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Decals are beginning to happen.  Absolutely no problems so far.

    Thanks folks, really appreciate the comments. At the moment I'm focusing on the 911 GT1 and AK's '92 Season T'bird, than I'll have a wee break and go build an aircraft or two just to keep the 'creative stuff' (we'll call it Modelling Mojo, eh ?) fresh. Have to say the mid-nineties/early 2000's kits really do  fall together with the minimum of fuss - definitely more to come.

    It's a superb kit Jeroen, whenever you see one, don't hesitate, it really is that good.

    Thanks Michael - Good 'heads-up', I'm mainly an aircraft modeller and have to do that sort-of-thing fairly often to open-up access panels and the like. Should be ok but I'll keep it in mind.

    Hi from across the ditch !
    Hope to be picking-up this kit at the weekend, will be my first GTR/R34 series project. Looks like a superb model, Michael, hope mine turns-out as neat as this.

    Finished on Friday: Revell kit with JWTBM decals (a gift from a mate back in UK), Tamiya 'Italian Red' straight from the rattle-can for the body and Xtracolour & Tamiya enamels everywhere else.

    Didn't realise I'd not posted completed pics... so here they are !
    Great Powerslide decals really made all the difference on this one, absolutely superb to work with. Easily my best NASCAR build to date. Thanks for all the encouragement along the way, folks. Lookout for a 'Beer Car' posting in just a few minutes.

    Finally got around to applying a couple of coats of Tamiya white on the body...
     

     
     

     
    As usual instead of drying full glossy white, it's dried somewhere between gloss and satin - no matter I've rubbed it back with a 3200 Micro polishing sheet so it's smooth like a mirror now and ready for decalling at the weekend. Hey remember all that beautiful detail on the block and transmission...
     

     
    This is all you can see now !! - more after next weekend - we have a show here and I'm taking the Porsche with me to do a decalling presentation.

    Thanks all, appreciate the comments. Hey Terry, you aren't too far from Lake City, got some good friends there. Already started on my next two projects - both very well known cars, as usual will take around a month to six weeks before they're ready. Thanks again folks.
