It's been a while with an update but I have finally finished a conversion (I was waiting for replacement door handles as the donor model didn't have any). I used a Fitzpatrick Trofeu model to make this version. Dave won class B and came second in the championship.

This model is the 1971 Broadspeed Ford Escort 1300GT driven by Dave MatthewsImage

And with the sister car of John Fitzpatrick which was a RS1600, both cars drove with these numbers at the first meeting at Brands Hatch.

It's been a while completing this next set but I have finally finished them (apart from changing 2 sets of wheels for the correct ones when I can get hold of them)

This set is the Prodrive BTCC BMW's from 1992

Yea. I know what you mean!!

Trying a couple of different techniques, found the best solution for me was using a sharper black pen (Menu car)! Will use this method for the Windows in future rather than paint.

How come you didn't use the supplied black pinstripe decal for the trim? It's very fiddly i know but gives the required finish.

Finished a couple of models last night, not entirely happy with the silver detailing as it ran a little when it dried (need to find a thinner silver pen!!)

1966 Superspeed Conversions Ford Anglia's

Number 78 is Mike Young with Number 79 being Chris Craft (these numbers were used at the Oulton Park race)

They look kind of cool as racing cars. And team cars always look better together. Nice job.

Thanks, I bought a couple of these Vanguard sets so you may see some more in the future!

Here is the latest addition to my collection which I had pro built.

1993 Will Hoy - Toyota Carina

Cracking model which i've never seen a model of before. Very jealous!

One thing i would say for £110 they didn't do a brilliant job with the decals. I know you didn't pay to have it done but if i had forked out £110 i would be asking for some money back. Seems they had trouble fitting the red decals and doing the black trim especially at the front.

Is this actually a Formule kit? Just i have never seen a kit of this car, nor a completed model.

Two more models to add to the collection and these are thanks to Matt (Jasonpotato) for repairing (Hoy) and building a kit (Bellm) for me. As you can see he did a great job of them.
I've even used his photos!

1991 BMW M3 E30 - Will Hoy & Ray Bellm

Thanks Tom, a great period indeed!

As promised my next update

1993 Vauxhall Cavalier - Ian Ashley

This time I used the Vanguard as a base rather than the Racing Replicas

Here is the RR version made a while back

The second car is

1989 Ford Sierra RS500 - Robb Gravett

I am quite happy how this one turned out as it was my first attempt at making a 2 tone colour model. I used a White IXO Rally car to make things a little easier, I also changed the wheels on it as well. The only thing that is annoying is that it's LHD but for £17 all in I can't complain too much!

Never seen the Gravett car, great job & the Ashley car looks alot better on the Vanguards base.
I'm not addicted to models, an addict admits their problems & I don't have a problem.

They all look great - nice job. One tiny comment (not a critcism at all) but by using a rally base fir the gravett sierra i assume you realised it is a cosworth rather than an rs500 base?

How did you get such a clean spray line on the two tone paint? I always fail miserably when i try?

Thanks for you comment regarding the base, yes I knew it wouldn't be correct but as this was my first effort I didn't want to spend at lot of money on a correct version then cock it up (the Minichamps still go for high money where as this model only cost ten pound). I have a couple of sets of decals to make both cars twice so I will see how I go a second time (for the Smith car) before I move on to a better base, but it will do for now.

As for the two tone I just used Tamiya masking tape and ensured it was well stuck down with no gaps, there were a couple of area where it did but not too badly.

Thanks
Chris

Tamiya masking tape - maybe that is the secret - I've just been using normal masking tape. Will order some up!

I must admit the versions of I have seen of this Vanguards Cavalier of non-white cars look better.

The second car is

Chris, RHD RS500 Cosworth rally cars are readily available from £6.99 if you look for them.. I have a couple.
