    Hi all here's today's bit, first non perfect fitting bit (where the bit beneath the bonnet just won't stay glued I think I will just have to take it off and shave some off the front chassis) it's still an amazingly engineered build.

    Hi all, well the bus is done 








    Here are the cars for it (I've realised I didn't put the lotus in it) I think it's looking quite busy.

    Hi all next update, started the London taxi, I must say I'm a bit disappointed (not the kit it's good enough) it's just I could have knocked it out in a day easily, it is a VERY simple kit, yes it looks like a London taxi but maybe if it had a full engine or maybe the door handles were separate parts, I don't know what they could have done but it really is a simple kit.The kit is rated skill level 3 personally I think it should be level 1.





    Anyway I've also started the Italari phantom 2 rolls royce (I've spent the same amount of time on this so you can see the difference) the taxi only needs the glass and body on half an hour, let dry add decals done in 2 hrs

    Hi all well the taxi is finished (definitely not skill level 3 as the instructions suggest) I could easily done it in a day.

    Also started a paper model of a classic London Police box (never done a paper model before and it's a strughle)

    Nice police box. Paint on the taxi is a bit rough.

    Hi all here is the next update, I've got to say this is THE very first kit I've ever built with no decals, not even for the dash a kit with a few disappointments the colours have codes at the start of the instructions but that is the only mention of them so apart from the box art there is no mention of what colour anything should be. Anyway here is where I am now.

    Hi all well the roller is finished, going to shelve this dio for a while as I'm starting to just chuck them together just to finish them and I'm not giving it my best so will come back to it when I feel more like doing it justice





    Here is everything I have for the dio so far.
