Andi, you should have the standard reply asking you to prove you're a truck modeller. As you say, Gordon slipped through and I have told Steve (admin) where you have come from. We have a wide range of interests but there is a bias towards the older stuff. No pressure to post, just as and when you f...

Make that another plus from me. Great subject, and with a lot of character. Some nice scratchwork going on too. Paint colour choices are decidedly period and the weathering and patina gives it added provenance. All round well done from me. PS - I've made the effort to sign up on the 1/24SMTF and loo...

Great builds ................... and visually rich!

I'm drawn to the Surrey fringed teapot! I could see something like that at the T...

Great project - and frightening speed of assembly. I am very enamoured with Ian's suitcase project and this strikes with the same timbre; and I would of been drawn to that case/box too ........... very handsome. I could live without the photo' in the lid myself! I don't think it needs it as an "...

Some excellent scratch-building going on there - and you're starting to capture that look of your original pretty well.

A great start to a really interesting project - marvellous stuff - keep posting your progress.

Another hard won update it would seem?

Andrew............... thanks for the link, I've been using those already as there's some great little detail pic's amongst them - trouble the better the reference the more obliged you are to duplicate what you can see!!!

So, thanks - I think ............... :?

That looks the part Ian. Just a small enquiry - those weeds? Are they produced with a "crafters" punch? Or are they an off the shelf item [ I suspect not as you seem more inclined to do rather than buy!] - in that case - have you fashioned them yourself - and if so - How! [remember that pr...

Looks really good - and it shows a lot of potential too. The amount of thinking you put into this is already apparent, and the grouping of the buildings is particularly charming.

Great dioramic focus with plenty of play possibilities.

No problem Gordon ................ I thought exactly the same thing, but being pretty sure there was no mainstream kit of the E83 in 1/24:5th I didn't pursue it.

Michael is this one you're referring to?
