    I'd imagine that stuff is far too thick to be useful?
  2. dublin boy added a post in a topic LHD v RHD USA   

    Sweden went LHD literally over night in 1967 as far as I remember.
     
    The UK, Ireland, Australia. New Zealand, Japan and a few other countries still have right hand drive, or correct hand drive as we call it

    Is that Tom Walkinshaw Pat?
  4. dublin boy added a post in a topic Car modelling in the UK   

    It's much the same this side of the Irish sea, but I can get some amt/round 2 and Revell US kits in Dublin.
    I asked the owner of Marks models here why no selection of car kits, he simply said nobody buys them, it's mostly Military modelling.
    As Jim mentioned above Widgetman aka Al always has current revellogram kits listed, he's a good guy and a mate of mine up in Newcastle.

    You couldn't really be further away from me! LOL
    What are you looking for?
    Marks models have a good selection, they have Aoshima stuff recently too. Google them.

    I have the Merc with the hardtop.

    Nice model.
    I agree with JC, the pace notes look great. Any chance of telling us how you made them?

    LOL, no harm in trying!
     
    It would look good though, the V6 in your Opel GT kit might be a better fit, six injector stacks coming through the bonnet.
     
    Crank up your Skype later on Geoff.

    Tamiya Candy lime green Geoff, and a V8, tubbed rear end, slicks and wheelie bars.
  12. dublin boy added a post in a topic Amazon Prime sign Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May for exclusive new show   

    Apparantly Amazon is small but growing in the UK, but still not available in Ireland for some reason.
     
    It makes me laugh because Northern Ireland is in the UK and only an hours drive from Dublin. Go figure...

    Will you have the four spot lamps?
    I think it looks better without them, just my opinion.

    I always assumed you could drive an MOT failure home or to a garage for repair in England Pat? Maybe this is something new.
     
    We have the NCT (National Car Test) for years now here, much the same as the MOT, but you have to bring the jam jar to Official test centres, while you can get your MOT almost anywhere in the UK and at short notice, we have to book for weeks in advance.
