    I'm struggling to see how they'll be combined! Are we looking at a James Bond style vehicle/aircraft hybrid?

    Made a tentative start to this one. There's not much detail in the cockpit at all so I think I'll need to scratch some.

    But the Bedford is looking a better kit.

    I've been slowly working on the cockpit for this one. Like I said in the last post, there's not much detail so I made this up.

    Looks like how I imagine the cockpit of a power boat racer to be :)

    Oh come on Joe! Ian's already hinted he's gonna put this thing onto a truck chassis. Please don't give him the idea of fitting it with a hull as well! He'll never get it finished and I'm dying to see what he's going to end up with!

    Got the cockpit/cabin painted up and decaled just needs some weathering, then I can seal it up.

    Gotta be semi-automatic whatever it is! Only two pedals.

    The two pedals are the clutch and accelerator, the brake is the leaver on the left hand side of the seat Dave.
