    Hi all well i figured since i seem to be ruining everything i touch lately i thought maybe i should try a new kit, if i make a hash up of this im going to take it as time to hang up my modeling tools and give up all together i decided to do all the chrome on this gold i was having trouble getting the gold leaf to stick to this but now is sorted the gold leaf sticks now but I couldn't get a good shine on it (its too soft as soon as you try to buff it (however gentle you are)it rubs off) so I've had to settle for imitation gold leaf (it's a bit tougher) I think it looks much better.

    This is the main colour I'm doing it (not even sure if I will be adding another colour yet) I think the gold looks good with it,  opinions please?

    Opinion, i like the gold but not the green. It looks like its an undercoat somehow.

    Hi all well i was looking at a poacher build of this car and (although it's a 1/8 kit do twice the size of this) I thought I could add more detail to the engine so I've removed a bit moulded to the engine (not sure what the part is) but I've seen it in a lot more detail on the poacher kit and I think it is a fairly easy bit to improve (I'm not saying this will end up like a poacher kit but I am going to try and add what detail I can)

    Hi all revell put the location tab for this part but for some reason didn't make the part.

    I've fabricated it also the other bits which are attached to the sump (don't know what any of the parts are) but they help fill empty spaces, they are not exactly right the black box thingy with 2 nuts on the top should have 3 but I've not got any small enough, but I figure it's better than having nothing there.

    Hi all here is the next update, progress may slow down a bit as I'm waiting for some alclad gold (hoping I looks shinier than the gold leaf)

    Hi all I was asked by a few people how I did the leather so incase anyone is interested here's how I did it.

    First I primed it 

    Revell 1/16 Rolls Royce Phantom 2 continental  16itpy1

    Then a very watered down coat of yellow ocher (I only used vallejo as I didn't have any yellow ocher in enamel, but enamel should work too)

    Revell 1/16 Rolls Royce Phantom 2 continental  24qmg50

    Once that's dry a very thin coat of humbroll 62 

    Revell 1/16 Rolls Royce Phantom 2 continental  Spyuc3

    Then a normal coat of humbroll 63 then whilst it's still wet, scrunch up some clingfilm film and dab it on the paint till you get the desired effect.

    Then a coat of satin varnish

    Revell 1/16 Rolls Royce Phantom 2 continental  280r608

    If I wanted to take it further I could scratch the paint then rub some buff coloured pastel into the scratch, brush it off then varnish it again.

    I could go on and pluck holes in it put oil stains and all sorts

    It's dead easy .

    Oh well I've got another problem, we're baby sitting our daughters puppy (I can't be angry he's such a sweetie) being as how I've not had a dog for 20 odd years and my missus not  had one for even longer, we're a bit out of practise, the dog is tiny it's a sausage dog he's 16 inches long so imagine my surprise that he can get parts off a 30 inch high table. The fuel cap is missing a few other bits are chewed (not too bad they can't be fixed) ( some of the ship parts I don't want to think about (gulp the Soliel may end up shelved) I made a concerted effort to stick to just this build to try and get my confidence back and although I can't get a good gold effect on it so far, I'm pleased with how it's going, I may end up just spraying the gold with gold paint or doing it high gloss black, it's funny I would be so cross if a human had damaged these kits but I melt when I look at frankie, I do love dogs, I look at this tiny animal and I just can't understand how some people can hurt innocent little creatures, I look at him and my heart melts

    Hi! all, well not to change the habit of a lifetime here is the progress on another ruined kit. I tried to use gold leaf but could not get enough shine on it, so I then tried alclad, which turned out rubbish, I've now tried ak real gold, the results are the best so far but still totally rubbish.
