Hi all some of you may remember this





Well I did it originally purple and gold but the sun turned the gold to chrome and I hated that sooo, I thought I would try and give it a second chance.

It's going (if my skills are up to it) get this in it





It means a LOT of work (gearbox tunnel to say the least)

Encase anyone has not seen this beast before on top is a 1/32 humber snipe I'm working on.

I can now remember this one Ken, nice to see you bringing this one back to life. A great idea, and some great work so far.

Hi all been messing about with wheels just can't decide does this look ridiculous


I really like the small wheels at the front but the rear (although bigger) I think don't look right in the wheel arches (of course I could remove the wheel arches)
Or if I mix wheel rims what about this

Or keeping the same rims (Still smaller at the front)

There is surprisingly very little difference on ground clearance at the front considering how much bigger these wheels are

Hi all well my soldering is world famous for being abysmally poor so here is my best effort at the headlight bar.



I've installed the engine and radiator also done the wheels with the large at the front and small at the rear. Loads of connections still to me made to the engine and got to figure out the exhaust system.

Hi Ken just caught up on this one. some great work on the engine. I really like the look of the wheels on the next to last photo's of the Saturday 14 April posting. Although this post may be a little too late form that question. Great work and keep it up.
