    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.

    I think I've cracked it.
    It's not what it appears to be at first thought!

    After much more work, I think I've cracked it.

    I give up, can't possibly work out what this one is.

    Great work. Looks impressive.

    I just finished Revell AG 1945 MG TC. To keep the Revell AG theme going, I dragged the Jag out again. Started building this at least a decade ago, and put it away in frustration.
    So far I've cleaned up the body, opened the doors on each side, opened the boot (trunk in USA lingo). The doors have prototypically correct hinges made from brass plate. The interior panels also had to be cut once the doors were opened.
    The opening doors also meant I've had to cut recesses into the chassis or floorboards where it's recessed at the door areas, and build up the panels at the front and back of the door jambs. Consequently, the underside of the doors have been built up to the correct profile.
    Pictures to follow in a later seperate thread.

    Real for me too.

    Great driver and builder, and a modest man. Sad loss indeed.

    World Rally Championship.

    And welcome to the OP from another ClogWog living at the other end of the world.

    That's the car from the remake of the movie, not the original Gone in 60 Seconds.

    I think I've cracked this one.
    No hints from me.

    I say it's real.

    I know what a real RR looks like, as I'm driven to golf every second week in one by one of my mates.
    The other week I drive him in my Subaru.
    I think I have the better bargain here.

    I voted MODEL, but if that's wrong, then I think it's REAL.

    Ah, Bathurst. Was actually interesting and worth following on those them thar olden days.

    Totally ruined with the bogan v8 supercar crrapp today.
    Might slightly improve now that Nissan and Mercedes are joining the circus from this year.

    Nice work, nice car.
  15. warra48 added a post in a topic Why do we smoke?   

    I quit cold turkey back in 1975, and haven't smoked one since. That was when mrs warra and I were married. She's never been a smoker, ever.

    I can smoke the occasional Cuban or pipe, and it doesn't create any cravings.

    Now, I do love my pint of beer every day, as I have a home brewery in my garage, but I can limit myself to the one pint a day. Maybe I just don't have an addictive nature.

    OK, here's an old joke:
    Question: Do you smoke after sex?
    Answer: I don't know, I never looked.
