  1. Ah! Man! thanks for that link buddy. Lot's of great ref pics there. Top man.👍
  2. I have two of the AM kits. The first one I b*****d up the engine tring to get the engine stabilisers/braces throught the headers, something that even AM say is nigh on impossible and can barely be seen even if one achieves it. But not one for being put off I gace it a go anyway bt after a solind eight hours of trying, I finally had to admit defeat. The second kit will be built without the braces. It's a beautiful kit but I feel it is somewhat over engineered. BTW..... the MPC kit was a recent wedding gift to me by dublin boy. Thanks me owld liddle leprachaun. Thanks for the info. Do you have a link to that site please? 😅 🤣 Thanks for the HU guy. The originals look in good order but's handy to know where I can get replacements. Pattos Place in OZ also does them. https://www.pattosplace.com/home.html Dealt with both of them in the past and both are good IMO .
  3. Having been away for several months due to moving house, I now have my new man cave and bench set up and running. 😀 My return build is going to be this one: Considering it dates back to 1971, there is remarkably little flash............. ........... however there is way too much chrome which will have to be stripped
  4. Thanks Bruce. I'm sure your's will turn out just fine. It's a great kit.
  5. Thanks Trevor. I'm moving house at the end of June so I'm afraid this one is going back in the box, just way too much to do to carry on building. Catch you guys on the flipside in September. Take care all and stay safe.
  6. Thanks guys. When I finished it, I promised myself I'd build another but this time with a lot more added detail................. it's still waiting to be done!!!!! 😄
  7. Sorry I'm late to the party John. It may have taken a long time, it may have a lot of hoses and it may have had it's problems but my word you have made a cracking job of it and you should give yourself a pat on the back. If mine turns out as good, I'll be a happy chappie indeed. Well done!👍👍👍
  8. Thanks all. Your kind comments keep this old geezer going. 👍
  9. Hi Bill, Ah! I hadn't noticed that the box art I posted is the recent Tamiya/Ebbro colaboration. Mine is the original Tamia kit: Glad to have you on board.
  10. Thanks Jim. I had real fun doing this one.
  11. Welcome to the forum Mark. mI'm new here myself. Show us some of your work.
  12. This 'Thing' was borne out of a completley failed Tamiya Porsche 962c kit. Nothing went right on the build and it seemed like everytime I touched it, something else went wrong. So I tossed it back in the box and chalked it up to experience. Then, an idea formed in my warped brain cell. It's a wacky sort of Mad Max meets Dick Dastardly, in the wake of a nuclear apocalypse, 'defend' your self against the mutants' vehicle. Nothing was measured, everything was 'imagineered' and left a little 'rough around the edges' to get the effect I wanted. This is the kit:
