Halfords or any motor factors have clear coat that's acrylic,if you don't like rattle cans you can decant it.and spray it without thinning. Promatic is great if you can find it. Do a test to see if it suits your base coat though.
Well no Mk2 Lotus Cortina ever left the showroom floor with 150 bhp to be fair, but you could build the Falcon to 1960's UK saloon car racing spec when alloy wheels have been used in period. A GT40 engine be fantastic too, but don't let me change your mind to option 3! LOL Always a pleasuse to watch your work JC.
This is only an idea JC, I didn't have enough time to look for a Falcon, but in British Saloon car racing, (at least in 69), they were all running lightweight alloy/mag rims. Maybe you could search that idea? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwIjhL1J2eg&t=40s
UK to Ireland costs about 6 quid Sterling Leslie, even for one of the newer Revellograms that are full of styrene, it's a bit cheaper for me the other way round. Most of my kits and bits get posted from and to the US, so I've no idea how much it would cost to send a kit to Germany for example, but I'd imagine it's much the same, I did sent a Jiffy bag with only a wheel and tyre to Croatia once though, it was as much the same price as if I was sending it to the UK, or even within Ireland.
The problem is going to be the lack of model car builders over here compared to America. Tanks and Planes etc. are much more popular for reasons I'll never understand! lol.
Yep. Fluent Irish speakers and fluent Scot's Gaelic speakers can converse quite easily. Now where they got Welsh from is beyond me...lol Irish whiskey has to be better, we have an extra letter in it for some reason!
Anyone else? Only made it to Scotland once Leslie, up to the Jim Clarke museum in Duns when I was visiting a mate near Newcastle. I could have been in Ireland except for the accent, the people are much the same really, I can even understand bits of the Scot's Gaelic, it's very close to Irish especially in written form.
Your Dad also had a great sense of humor, he pm'd me a long time ago about some minor infringement, so I pm'd him back with a cheeky response. The pm's that went over and back ever afterwards were really funny. That's how I remember him anyway.
