  1. Here's the almost complete Deusy engine. So glad I decided not to glue the bonnet shut!
  2. I'm working on an auction purchase Monogram Deusenberg that unfortunately is missing the top part of the engine, so after a few hours, 12 pieces of styrene and 13 pieces of brass rod I have this - good enough for me!
  3. I can feel your pain. Same happened to me after 15 year's marriage, life was tough at times, but I survived some very deep lows. I sincerely hope that things work out for you.
  4. Yes, the 1/16 kit was released as a '34 Ford Phaeton and also a Tudor Sedan.

    Seems to be working all the way down here, too. Many thanks.
  6. Wanna race? Here's my 1/24 Tamiya MX5 built as a Global Cup car, with scratchbuilt rollcage and window net. Paint is Tamiya spraycan, TS95 Pure Metallic Red and Metallic Black over grey Tamiya primer. Decals are from Plamoz, and the wheels/slick tyres are from the UT Models Calibra I built recently. A superb kit from Tamiya, the drivetrain consists of 15 pieces including the propshaft which assemble without incident, which then fits to the floorpan and all seven mounting points line up perfectly!
  7. And yet shipping from Japan to here in New Zealand is far cheaper than from the US. I have all but stopped buying kits from the US, preferring to buy from the Far East or Europe.
  8. Thanks Jim. I have decals to do this car, but it won't be an exact replica. This is the concept car, I have since found out that the actual MX5 Global Cup cars used a different rollcage. I have already built the kit as a road car, it is a superb Tamiya offering.
  9. My first ever attempt at scratchbuilding a rollcage, for a racing MX5. I should be able to build the interior around it.
  10. This is the UT Models 1/24 DTM Opel Calibra built as a street version, i.e. no roll cage or race car instrument panel, parts box bucket seats and Pegasus wheels/tyres (which had to be narrowed) instead of the kit slicks. A lot of surgery was required to remove all the electronic modules etc. from the interior. Paint is Testors' Emerald Green Metallic.
  11. Just seen this thread, amazing work!
  12. Thanks for running this Matt, it was a fun, cool quiz.
  13. First completion of the year, it's the 1/25 Trumpeter 1965 Ranchero built box stock apart from slight lowering and parts box wheels and tyres. Paint is Tamiya Metallic Red with a Transparent Red clearcoat. I know this series of kits got slammed in the US, but it looks cool in my display and was a pleasure to build.
  14. Excellent, both of them.
