You have got on well with the project so far Ken, and some of those pieces are not quick builds. I would include the 'Cardis' in that group as you found out having to build two to get the second one spot on. A change is as good as a rest as they say:O)

Hi all here's the next update I made the break and fuel lines out of stripped network wires


I much prefer larger scales, I mean look how small this engine is

Compared to this

Those window blind slats are 4 inches (approximately 100 mill)
How you guys add so much detail to 1/24 kits I take my hat off to you.

Hi all here's the next update


Don't know if anyone remembers them but made the cable that used to run from the door levers

And started on the next building

I have seen the lanyards in period promotional films and wondered how easy they were to accidently tug whilst the car was in motion causing the door to open  :((

My mums first car was a Mini Countryman the one with the wood on the outside.  Its registration number was 773 EUK and it had the pull cords in the doors for opening them.

Hi all starting the range rover(given to me by polux) the exhausts are moulded into the floor pan so I've tried cutting them out to make them look more like pipes than how they look now.

That is a good start Ken. I salute your efforts on those hidden areas that you know you have done well.
