  1. Bugatti T 50 resurrection: Thread deleted mistakenly

    Hi Thierry....... Wishing you well with your recovery, and try to stay positive ( that's easy for me to say, I know ) I have the utmost admiration for any scale model car builders that take on a Pocher kit....... and you WILL get there my friend !!! David
  2. '58 Impala

    Anders.... this is a really interesting scale model motor car, and I do like the colour combination. This turquoise and white '58 Impala and also a blue and white '55 Chevy that I've seen on here recently are just the best two-tone colours for the '50's period. Your build is very nicely done indeed. David
  3. 1956 Citroen DS

    Paul..... I had seen the high price for these Ebbro Citroen DS19 kits previously, and now I know why they are a bit pricey... good quality and accurate. Your build is excellent and I can see why you are so pleased with it. Beautiful scale model motor car! Well done. David
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Geoff in Solihull.... You have got yourself a very nice resin kit of the Morris Minor there, and I would be very interested in a Lotus Cortina MK1 resin kit in 1:24 scale. I have built a 1:24 Morris Minor Traveller as a resin kit, which I gave to my cousin because it was a replica of his late father's motor car. Currently I am building a 1960 Ford Anglia 105E which is also a resin kit, and I would like to build a 4-door Ford Cortina MK1 which used to be my late father's car, but the Lotus Cortina is a 2-door of course. Thanks for posting a photo of the box for the kit and I shall have a look at The Motor Museum in Miniature web site. Here is a photo of the Morris Minor Traveller for you.....

  5. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Sonny..... There might well be a build thread for this one, but I am not only a slow builder, but also not great at keeping up with the build by posting regularly. However, having said that I will try. The build is going to be a 1932 MG F Magna as driven by Kitty Brunell successfully in major international motor races and rallies of the period. The 1933 MG K3 Magnette is close enough to the Magna to be accurate, in terms of dimensions and specification generally. Thanks for looking! David in Derbyshire, England
  6. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Yes, it was quite lucky Gary...... and this will be my first build of a white metal kit, so I need to take it slowly. Not sure yet if super glue or epoxy is best for assembling these kits. David
  7. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Picked up a really nice 1:24 Wills Finecast Auto-Kit today, which is a white metal kit of a 1933 MG K3 Magnette Open Tourer. The original box is in very good condition, especially considering this kit is 46 years old or more. I managed to bid for this kit on Ebay and got it for £9.99, which is around US $. 12.73 and I can see built versions of this kit on sale for £150.00 ( US $. 191.28 ). The wire-spoked wheels have to be wired by hand, but they include a wheel winding jig and plenty of wire in the kit. I shall be building this as a 1932 MG F Magna which is very close in appearance to the K3 Magnette of 1933. David
  8. Revell 1/25 55 Chevy

    Bruce...... I have just been studying all four pages of this wonderful topic, and as a builder of British and European scale model cars in 1:24, seeing your incredible work on this '55 Chevy makes me want to go out and buy the Monogram kit and build one myself! Maybe this will happen, as a direct result of your inspiration. In a few weeks I shall be taking delivery of the excellent book by Tim Boyd ' Collecting Muscle Car Model Kits ' that everyone is talking about. If there is a 1955 Chevy in there like yours Bruce..... I may well go ahead with it. ( no way am I going to achieve your paint finish, and I love the two tone look of the'50's David
  9. Just placed an order for your book Tim on Ebay UK and although my field of interest regarding the building of scale model cars is not actually American Muscle Cars, there is sure to be a wealth of fascinating knowledge among your thousands of words and hundreds of photos! Having studied three pages of brilliant reviews here on MCM forums I simply had to order a copy quickly, before they are all gone! The Waterstones website was stating ' Currently Unavailable to Order ' and ' Publisher Out of Stock ', while the Ebay website only had 2 copies available ( One of which I reserved ). Good luck with your whole publishing experience Tim...... I just have to wait 3 weeks to get my copy of your book! ( I can wait ). David Watson, Derbyshire, England, UK
  10. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Gary..... I like the Econoline van and Don Parker trailer combination, and the Ford GT40 sits nicely on the trailer. The black and white photo of the 1:1 outfit alongside your diecast models goes together well. Today I received a delivery of some nice 1:24 scale cotton flags, comprising one pack of two France Tricolour and one pack of two Union Jack. David
  11. LHD Gulf Seven

    Mark..... the engine has fitted into the engine bay quite nicely by the look of it, and your detailing continues...... detail, detail and more detail! David
  12. The birth of the Cobra article

    That is a well regarded article Gary, and as we can see it is providing continued reference for members of MCM even after 16 years since you wrote the article. David
  13. Who Needs Decals?!

    Nicely done badges and scripts Steven, and all done using foil and paint...... as D Spencer said, does look more realistic than decals. You must have a steady hand and good eyesight Steven ! David
  14. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Richard.... the 400 ml aerosol can of cellulose was ordered from Autopaints of Brighton, in Hove, England UK David
  15. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Just like Michael of South Carolina. I was really impressed with a very fast delivery today...... I placed an order for a rattle can of cellulose Ford Imperial Maroon paint to build a 1960 Ford Anglia, which was yesterday 3rd January and by midday today, 4th January the paint had been mixed to order and delivered to my home address. This is so fast I cannot understand how the company did that? Sent an email to say thanks for a brilliant service! David
