  1. Autoquiz 378 - Finished

    Let me research this in my book on these. I'll get back to you.
  2. Ah, if only I still lived in Doubleview, I'd be there but, alas, I'm in Port Stephens these days, so it's geographically a little difficult.
  3. Hello from the Netherlands

    Welkom Hermann, van een andere Nederlander vanuit Australië.
  4. CBR 2018 - Packard powered Jag.- DONE

    Love it. Great work.
  5. Autoquiz 371 - Finished

    I've taken a guess at this one. Interesting.
  6. Bentley

    I have the Heller kit, only partially built at this stage. As usual, other things have got in the way. I think it's a nicely detailed kit. Might make it my next project to finish once I get one top of my current Jaguar Mk2 project. Just one thing to remember for anyone building these, you'll notice in the image a couple of posts back that from the bonnet (or hood for our US friends) back, the finish is flat or satin, and not glossy. I believe they were all like that originally.
  7. Autoquiz 369 -Finished

    I think I have an idea I might know this one. Rather obscure, for sure. PM sent.
  8. Love it! Very nice work.
  9. Modeler Survey

  10. Fantastic build of a great looking car. You did a much better job than I would ever do. Excellent photography too. Contrary to what is generally said at present, the original kit was not released in 1973, but 2 or 3 years earlier. I built the original one before 1973, as I moved from NZ to Australia in Feb 1973, and the kit was finished well before that.
  11. Real or Model #236 FINISHED!

    Another vote for real. The shadows under the car just don't talk model to me.
  12. Auto ID #180 Finished

    Got it, but my lips are sealed !
  13. MG TC 1946

    Revell Germany kit No. 07392. Lots of detail work, including opening all louvres, separate and hinge bonnet with scratchbuilt hinges, wired engine, hand laced wire wheels to correct pattern, dash board painted to resemble timber, radiator louvres opened up. Not perfect, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Not a factory correct colour, but I liked the look of it. Too many other models already in red.
  14. Royal Bug Typo 41 Chassis # 41121

    Very nice build. I built the Napoleon version of this car quite some years ago, not sure now whether it was a Heller or Italeri or some other manufacturer. Unfortunately, it got damaged beyond reasonable repair over a couple of house moves.
