    I would prefer BMC Almond Green GN-37 for the body and BMC Old English White WT-3 as the original cars.

    Nice work, Geoff. Do you paint almost all your models with an airbrush?

    In the April 2013 of Mini Magazine, there are 7 pages on "The story of Belgium's Seneffe Plant", place I knew well when I worked for British Leyland. Building and parking are still there.
    Is there any BL factory extant today ?

    Superb work, Geoff. I got another Revell Mini in Ireland. Will start soon.

    I got the Revell Mini Cooper kit today. Looks great.

    Geoff, I worked for BL Belgium in the seventies, almost ten years. Different jobs, first as computer dept. manager, then Sales Promotion Manager and finally Racing Team Manager. I initiated with my friend Christian de Jonghe the return of BL on racing tracks, against the decision of Management in UK. We developed the Triumph Dolomite Sprint with Bill Shaw and Ralph Broad, winning the Belgian Champ in 74 and 75 and French Champ in 75, 76, ... I had the chance to visit many factories and assembly plants, such as Seneffe, Malines South and North (Belgium), Cowley, Longbridge, Coventry, Solihull, Abingdon-on-Thames, Browns Lane (UK), Innocenti (Italy). Pity to see many of those places gone today. I met also many great names of those racing glory days.
    Today, I am living along the sea in Finistère, France and back to model cars. I am sometimes working on full size cars, actual project is a Jag XJS 12 V12 for a good friend of mine. That keeps me busy for a while.

    Happy New Year to all Modellers.

    Hi Geoff,

    It's always nice to follow your blogs with Mini models.

    I am an ex-British Leyland boy, so it refreshs my memory.

    I hope to post soon a Mini Wip.

    Cheers,

    Michel

    Hello to everyone,

    I am back to modelmaking after many many years and I love the VW bugs, my first driving experience( and my first crash at 14 years of age) and my first own car (an oval with hydraulic brakes).

    I ,would like to start the building of a Hasegawa 1966 beetle. I would like to know if empinut could help me with the rubber-chrome for windows.

    Thanks to all for a great forum.
