    Thanks Dann, yes the dio is pretty handy being able to take various sizes. I've ordered an early Heller Citroen 2CV kit, with the corrugated bonnet in 1/43rd! We'll see if that's too small for the French Backstreet Garage!

    Two of my latest builds, one is a rare 1/32 Dune Buggy, and the other with superb decals....................

    Thanks Tom, yes I'm a bit carefull after it happened once, and have scanned all decals when I buy an older kit, just in case.

    Aurora Dune Buggy
    A very nice 1/32nd scale kit....................

    Realising that it was a reasonably old kit, I scanned the decals to my PC and sized them on a Word page. Although I gave the decals a couple of coats of gloss clear they still collapsed when trying to lay them onto the body.  So I printed the Word image onto a new clear decal sheet, then after drying gave them two coats of gloss clear and used those in the build.

    Cheers Leslie for your heads-up.
  11. PatW added a post in a topic What did you see on the road today?   

    I've seen (no camera with me at the time) quite a few new Jaguar 4X4's and two McLaren 570S supercars, but we are just 5 miles from Silverstone so it's not surprising!

    Yes this Subaru Wagon 1:1  seems to be pretty rare in the UK. But plenty of Impreza's as the Prodrive factory is 18 miles away and quite a few rally WRC replica's as well.

     Although going against my recent selling spree of all car kits of 1/24 & 1/25 due to lack of space my youngest son has always wanted a 1:1 of these in this colour to carry his mountain bike a gear around in. He does cross country on his bike, wereas the eldest son does more downhill.

     
    He was looking for a decent reasonaly priced second-hand one, but he bought a BMW 3 series touring wagon in the same colour!
