    Airfix 1/12th scale Blower Bentley
    G'day all I don't post on forums much these days but thought I'd show my latest finish model. It's about 60% scratch built. The biggest amount of work involved was the brass wire wheels and replacing pretty much all of the chassis in brass as well as the kits parts were just to delicate to hold the weight of the added detail.

    I was asked by a long time Customer to build this model over a long term period approximately 2 years ago!! I lost interest as I'm not as a rule a plastic kit builder but have since had a new urge to have another go again.
    To date I've completed the chassis and wheels but not much else since. The plan is to build a very detailed model but I won't be incorporating all the chassis details which are hidden under the floor. I will be detailing the engine ,supercharger and firewall etc. Some people may have already seen this project on other forums so bare with me through the boring stuff already seen until some fresh updates start happening.

    I machined and spoked new wheels from brass to replace the terrible Airfix wheels.



    A new dashboard was fabricated from 1.4mm Aluminium plate and given a machined finish,Individual gauges were machined from Brass and will eventually recieve Bromide printed faces with polycarbonate lenses


    Jumping ahead I put a coat of "number 5 racing colors British green (without clear coat)




    As it stands now fenders riverted and fitted to the chassis now I can make a start on the detailing of the engine /blower etc! All the boring work is done !!

    Hi Geoff I haven't found any forums apart from this one worth posting on and I'm still working on the big Airfix Bentley.
    Thankyou all for the warm welcome!
