Yeh, the Audi looks the business.

What colour did you use to paint the Alfa?

Thanks guys.

The Alfa was sprayed with Tamiya X-7 i believe but i can't take the credit for spraying it as it wasn't me. I only built it and applied the decals ;)

Thanks for making the Alfa for me Matt, it looks great but it's just ashame that the Royal Mail didn't take he same amount of care over it as you did. :(

You are also correct with regards to the paint colour, it was the Tamiya red paint X7, according to the sheet you could also use Testor paint 2719 (Fiat Red 130)

The Audi looks great, looking forward to making one sometime in the future.

No problem at all, pleasure making the model for you. Just need one for my collection now :D

With some more Muller decals, the correct window decal, names and the number 7s with backings all included in the 1997 Audi BBR sheet am i right in thinking with some cutting you could make the 1998 Bintcliffe car? I think it's possible and no reason why it couldn't look as good. Only thing i'm not 100% about is the font of the number '7' plus getting the cross on the windowshield on to the new one.. Maybe Peter could clarify?

Love the Miller Audi 8-)

The cross on the windsheild was on both cars throughout the 1998 season.

The race number font looks the same as the previous years.

Thanks. That was what I was saying about the cross which as I see it is the only obstacle in making the 98 Bintcliffe car. Not sure how you could transfer it or maybe buy some pinstripe decals.

For the cross you could always use a fine tip Sharpie pen. It's worth trying it out to see if it's gonna work before you do it on the model.

Another model which arrived this morning.

Wasn't feeling very hopeful when i held the package as something was rattling inside but turned out that only a wheel had fallen off!

Could do with a few little touch ups here and there but to be expected with a model this old.

Another Racing Replicas Mondeo i managed to get last week and i have finally got around to fixing my 94' Mazda Xedos. Painted the trim around the windows, sorted the windshield decal out and swapped over the headlights to correct clear lenses and the yellow ones are now on my 93' Watts car.

That does look very nice but too far out of my price bracket. I'll just have to make do with looking at yours.

Thanks Schuvo for your kind comments.

Steve, what model would you pay £75 for? :)

I do agree that it's steep and the most i'm willing to pay for a top notch 1:43.

Getting back to modelling now after my break so expect a few surprises in the upcoming months.

Watts Pug looks very good

And somewhat envious of your Audi pairing - nice

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Nice new additions JP, can you tell us where you sourced the 2009 VXR decals as some of us i'm sure would love to do these ourselves and the maker might make some decent cash from a well made set (by the looks of them).

I'd like to know where you got the decals and do them make them to order as I need Andy Jordan's Pirtek Vectra decals for when I do my conversions.

Looking at the way they are laid out on the sheet. And there seems to be only one person fanatical about vauxhalls. It can only be one person?!

He's just fanatical about the Vectra isn't he?? Would mind a set as well but I've spend my money on other things now!

Love the Pug, wish I had bid on it now as it's so much better than my home built version. Good luck with those kits and I'll get the others sent soon.
