Hi all well the bonnet is done (I must say I'm quite pleased with it)(not sure whether to put a few small dents in it here and there)

Hi all well I got £100 off my boss for xmas so ordered some gold leaf for the infamous ship a 1/16 revell VW Karmenn Ghia and managed to find German 1/8 machine gun for this dio 29.99 (bit pricey and it's not even a kit) I figure the effort I've put into this and the cost of the kit it will be worth it (yes it's a German machine gun but I figure they could have stolen it)

Coming together brilliantly KP. I knew it was big but didn't think it would 'dwarf' the Titanic LOL.

I have to keep reminding myself that this is a model and not an old rust bucket of a car. Super work.

Hi all I've pretty much had it with car kits, Ive been told I'm ruining a classic kit, feeling pretty deflated now, I thought this was some of the best work I had done. will stick to ships in the future.

Not sure who told you that you are ruining a Classic Kit, but that is only one opinion. I think you are doing a fine job on this build. Kits are kits and how they are built is up to the builder. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Hi all well this will be my last post on this one till at least next friday as off for the funeral in Scotland tomorrow.
I broke and lost part of the steering last night so had to make a new bit







gave the bottom another coat of muck and added a bit of grease








also (although my art days are way behind me nowadays)(and I never could do portraits)this is supposed to be Rene from Allo Allo, he will be behind a dirty window in the dio so I may get away with it, if not there's always plan B.
