  1. Mercedes 300SL - Tamiya

    Beautiful job.
  2. I have just received my order of a 1:43 1933 Mercedes 710 SS cabriolet, the same car I’ve been researching for years in order to build the 1:16 Revell/Academy kit. It is absolutely exquisite, totally accurate in every detail, down to the thinnest photo etched pieces I’ve ever seen. It’s one of an amazing array of classics and exotics, including larger scales, made in France by a craftsman named Ilario. Not cheap at $300, shipping included, but it’s worth the price to me. Sorry I can’t post photos, but there are plenty at: www.Ilario.com
  3. Your work is amazing. You might be interested in looking at some exquisite 1:43 handmade die casts of this car and similar, made in France by a craftsman named Ilario —- www.ilario.com
  4. Bugatti Atlantic

    Also sold as a kit, so there’s less dismantling to do. Engine needs lots of detailing. PS: As I recall, the car in the video is a replica by Koux.

  6. Revell Austin Healey

    Outstanding job. The multi piece body totally defeated me when I was a kid.
  7. Revell 1/8 Jaguar XK-E

    My favorite E-Type color combo is a dark gunmetal with a crimson red interior. I believe they called the color opalescent gray.
  8. Jaguar XK 120, Revell

    Spectacular job. Your work on the windshield frame is one of those little details that makes a big difference.
  9. Bentley

    I saw one on display at a Gilmore show in Michigan. I wasn’t prepared to see how big they are.
  10. Bentley

    When the repop of the 1/12 Bentley came out with the revised registration number, I contacted Airfix to see if there were any other changes to the original kit. They wrote me back that this was the only difference, and the change was dictated by a Bentley executive. I believe Lauren still has 6571 in his possession.
  11. Bentley

    Using the registration number shown in your photo, I tracked down this car at vintagebentleys.org. It’s a 1930 6.5 litre Speed Six, driven by Steed in several episodes from 1967-68. The interesting part is that Macnee couldn’t drive it, so they always used a stunt driver. If it’s a blower, it’s not a typical Bentley supercharger in front of the radiator. Lots of photos at the site, but I can’t copy and paste the url.

  13. Lotus Europa

    Wow. Beautiful work.
  14. Bentley

    As I recall, the Steed Bentley was a non-blower Speed Six.
  15. Revell AMG GT

    What’s up with the right-hand drive? Does the kit also offer LHD?
  16. Revell 1/8 Jaguar XK-E

    In the kit, there is a distinct panel line horizontally where the upper body joins the lower body. No such line on the 1:1.
  17. Monogram Classics

    You could probably even build the Tom Mix Cord using the 1/12 AMT kit, which was my plan. Though it’s a 2-seater, it shouldn’t be too hard to adapt to a cabriolet with a back seat and smaller trunk lid (they have the same wheelbase).
  18. Revell 1/8 Jaguar XK-E

    Your biggest issue will be how much you care about the body seam that runs along the bottom of the doors. I don’t have the link, but fixing it has been covered on the forum.
  19. Jaguar XJ-S H.E. TWR - Hasegawa

    Has anyone built the 1/16 version? It’s been gathering dust on my shelf while I’ve gathered stuff like the Haynes manual and BBS wheels.
  20. Autoquiz 362 - Finshed

    Based on your Africa clue, I Googled Madagascar SUV truck, but nothing close turned up.
  21. Harry`s Models

    Harry and I conferred on that one together. I sent him the curbside Aurora Stutz Bearcat and the Lindbergh Stutz Racer with engine, which he added.
  22. Autoquiz 360 - Finished

    The roof also resembles an Avanti.
  23. Photo-etch mesh

    Google Amaco WireForm mesh screens, which are available in a wide variety of patterns and densities. I have several that work well in different scales. www.amaco.com
  24. Airfix Bentley Blower in 1/12

    What we know to begin with is that the original kit and registration number are based on a car currently owned by Ralph Lauren. When this version of the kit with new registration plate came out, I contacted Hornby/Airfix to see what was different. They e-mailed me that the only difference is the registration number change, which was dictated by a Bentley executive who owns that number for his car.
  25. Autoquiz 353 - Finished

    Just another picture of the same car at the same car show. https://www.flickr.com/photos/93207294@N04/36793013605/
