  1. The Prisoner Lotus 7

    Great build Phil, I too loved The Prisoner (Patrick McNee by memory). Hope she appreciates the thought!! Dave B
  2. My Chaparral's & GS Vette

    Tks all. Gary , yes Fujimi is the Modellers 2D. I have the disc, it's a pity one of the current model magazines couldn't do some articles in a similar vein as those that were in MRRN. Regards Dave B
  3. My Chaparral's & GS Vette

    Just a couple of group pics of my Chaparrals. They are, front to back, left to right: LS 2C; Monogram 2D, considerably modified and with resin wheels/tyres; Fujimi 2D; Fisher 2F; Slush resin 2H, body and wheels & tyres are based on Mini Exotics and the rest is scratch built; scratch built 2J, courtesy of plans from Model Racing Replica News, miss that mag!; and Accurate Miniatures GS Vette but with correct bonnet (lower bulge and no vents). I also have the Cox 2, 2D and mag frame 2E but as these are slot cars have not included them. Tks for looking Dave B
  4. Ferrari 250 gto fujimi

    Nice build Benito, looks a little like Ulf Norinder's Swedish racing colours. This is how 3445GT is currently painted Regards Dave B
  5. Lister "Knobbly" Jaguar and Chevrolet

    Tks folks, your comments are appreciated. Dave B
  6. Great build Ismael. Love Fords but will probably never build that kit, just a bit too modern for me!! Dave B
  7. Lister "Knobbly" Jaguar and Chevrolet

    Hi Bernard, no, I did a lot of work to the plug and put it into silicon. See " on the work bench" Dave B
  8. Well I've finally finished my two Lister Knobbly's. They're only curbside but sit well with my other 50's sports racers. Having started with a single ratty fibreglass slot car body I'm pretty happy. The green and yellow car is my interpretation of Archie Scott-Brown's last win in a Lister before his first ever loss to another Lister, driven by Masten Gregory, then trying to stay ahead of Masten at Spa and crashing fatally. The burgundy car is a fictitious Chev powered American racer. Both are finished in auto acrylic. Tks for looking Dave B
  9. The Rodder's Journal first Deuce Coupe

    Nice build Phil, I have one to do, they say copying is the sincerest form of flattery. Hope you don't mind! Dave B
  10. Roadable Indy Roadster

    Love the concept & build Brian, definitely out of square. Dave B
  11. Shelby Honda S800

    Looks great Larry, reminds me of a bugeye Sprite I saw up here a while back. Dave B
  12. Monogram IMSA Zakspeed Roush Mustang

    Very nice build Chris. Dave B
  13. Porsche 904 GTS Carrera

    Looking good Bernard. Dave B
  14. Porsche 550 Spyder

    Nice build Larry, your 550 looks great Dave B
  15. Done a little bit more to these. The bodies are not exactly 'square' but neither was the master!! Although they are curbside I am building one supposedly Jag powered with Dunlop wheels and the other Chevy with exhausts both sides, side louvres and kidney bean Halibrands. The Jag version will be a tribute to Archie Scott-Brown and the Chevy a fictitious American racer. I have removed the Weber bonnet scoop from the Chevy version. Hopefully they will look OK on the shelf. Tks for looking. Dave B
