  1. You'll never guess who was silly enough to relace the wheels in the correct pattern to the correct diameter.
  2. Very nice work, It's a beautiful car. Your colour scheme works well. But yours, and mine, and all have I have seen completed appear to have the same very unlike Tamiya fault, in that the front wheel well sides don't clearly match to the body, and leave a gap. The result is that the car sits too high at the front, because the body won't drop down far enough. I don't know what the answer is, really, I've tried a number of things and failed. You might have better luck.
  3. Great topic. I have this kit, and it's moved well up on my list of projects to tackle next. This thread will be very helpful.
  4. The wood are decals. I'm building this myself at present.
  5. It's an ugly beast, but I think I know what it is.
  6. Having lived in New Zealand through the 1960s, I'm well aware of Vauxhalls, which were common there. It helped in tracking it down.
  7. I recognised the brand immediately, but it took me a while to come up with what I think is the answer.
  8. Ugly doesn't even begin to describe it. No idea what it is.
  9. Whatever it is, my garage isn't long enough to house this ugly monstrosity.
  10. Will follow this, as I'm currently working on the exact same kit. Mine will be in Arctic White, but backdated to a 1963 model, as I'm building mine as my very first car. The seats in mine were a deep red with cream on the sides and backs. The kit hubcaps are the later flat type, but the hubcaps on the 1963 were still the deep dish ones, which I have on hand, salvaged from a diecast model I improved for a friend of mine some years ago.
  11. I believe Beatle Ringo also owned one at some stage.
  12. Got the make straight off, but it took a bit of a search to get the right model and year We'll see if I'm one the the ones to get it right.
  13. Let me research this in my book on these. I'll get back to you.
