      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

512TR.

If I had to have a Ferrari, it'd be a white 512TR.

Funnily enough, I can't afford that. So, I'm setting out to create the closest

replica I can.

Winter is coming, which means it's too bloody cold to work outside on the Golf.. so it's model time :)

I'm gonna open and fabricate my own boot in the front, first time doing anything like this so it'll be fun.

So, a bit of progress. I stuck on the tunes;

and set up the model desk for workin'. iPad with reference pics at the ready!

So, after seeing this picture;

I saw that there is a line that isn't there beside the slot under the light. So, I scribed my own line in;

Then after scribing it over a lot, I got it off.

Then I got a start on the painting process:

This also shows the colour scheme - White with Tan interior.

I'm going to London for my first holiday in years on Monday for a week, hopefully I'll have more progress before then. If not, blame the GTI! :P

Thanks for looking, all comments appreciated.

Looks like a great project. Good luck with it. Are you going to make the luggage, too?

By the way, as coincidence would have it, I finally got both "Animals" and "Vol. 4" on compact disc in just the last couple weeks.

Thanks! Maybe not that specific luggage, but I'll be making something to put in there for sure.

Two great albums. Volume 4 is definitely one of my favourite albums ever!
