not got much done due to stupid shifts at work

but been drilling out the brake discs.....nearly done!....i actually find this quite theraputic lol



going to be facing a problem soon............my airbrush has gone u/s and i cant afford a replacement at the moment..........and i dont think i have any rattle cans the right colours.......so this might grind to a stop for a short while quite soon

I like the Silver/Blue combo more as it was not as common here as the black/gold.

now im at a point where i can start putting bits together!

spent the last week painting and applying decals............i think red is going to work with the gold decals

the decals have been a bugger, not gone down as nice as i would have liked dispite copious amounts of microsol



the motor is going together




and i got it in the frame tonight
