  1. Thanks guys. Yes you take out the luggage box and remove the engine lid and crouch on the cross member between the rear hubs!
  2. Another purchase through ebay UK, but with parts of the engine missing as described! So as I had, had experience building kit cars and a friend bought refurbed and sold one of these I knew that the size of the engine block was about the area of the Twin-Cam cylinder head plus the depth. The rest of the engine ancillaries were still in the box so added to the block plus a resin cast VW Beetle gearbox, slightly shortened to fit between the rear hubs. The luggage bin.. The engine lid.. And the steering works a treat!
  3. Superb all of them! My favourite is the Mercury.

  5. Has anyone out there bought from BNL Resins? I've sent two emails about buying goods and shipping to the UK, but they don't answer emails it seems!
  6. Well after seeing in the press and on TV here in the UK about the Tesla that crashed and burned on autopilot with two guys supposedly in the back seats at the beginning of their journey, found in the front when it crashed into a tree on a tight bend. I'll hand my licence back if the government here allow these non-driver cars on our roads.
  7. From my dear old ebay UK.. at a reasonable price But this wasn't.. It went for an eye watering £102! I want one but not at that price!
  8. This started life as an army stretcher carrier in 1/35th scale. I wanted a beach bound surfboard carrier. Camo dotted decals and homemade Boogie and Surf Boards.
  9. Thanks guys I enjoy building something different, great kit by the way!
  10. Superb work! It must be great to have the tools and knowledge to build like this. I've at last found a 'Milk Trike' kit here in the UK, but I'm still uncertain which set of decals to use as there are so many options, Milk, Pop, Ice Cream etc! OR even Monster Energy!! Keep up the great inspirational work!
  11. Well Pat it looks to be two bodyshells at least, brilliant! I built a resin one a couple of years ago, as I couldn't find a plastic one!
  12. from ebay UK, a cheapy with a couple of bits missing.. and a few days ago whilst shopping at the local supermarket.. Lethal Diesel.
  13. I bought the Gecko ATMP kit (Army Stretcher Carrier)in 1/35th, but I thought it would transfer to a beach patrol/surfboard carrier! Just putting the chassis together: It has scooter type steering. Yet to fit seats/ rollcage etc. and make surfboards in scale.
  14. Just superb! I wish we could get more of this type of kit in the UK.
  15. When I was 17 in 1965 my family didn't have a car and my wages in my first job was just £5 per week, from that came a portion for board and lodging at mum & dad's house plus £1 for my first of 20 driving lessons. You weren't allowed to request a driving test unless a driving school had put you through 20 lessons! Our local driving school had 2 cars one Austin A40 Farina and an 850cc Mini. So I signed up for the Mini.

    Thanks slusher/Carl. Yes the old coffee sticks come in handy.
  17. My pleasure Kinnon. Yes the idea of an old Mobilette is just right for Brittany and or Normandy. We go to Le Mans (24 Hour race) now and again and still see the old Mobilette's on the streets especially in the small towns and villages we go through!
