Hiroboy order :- Isuzu Bellet GTr , some fat '70's style wheels 'n' tyres (4 spokes) and a bag of turbo's !

£1,500 out of 2 1/2 g. gone already . OOPS !! ( not ALL  on cars ... )

I also brought some old dinky / matchbox 'wrecks'  Baja bug/manx etc - found a Ford GT70 ??! I never knew existed  & all in the 50p box as well !! Smile, Wink & Grin 

Modelmatic (1:64 fine detailed like greenlight & M2 ) got a £65 order too .

Some specials have swapable wheels , I have a '50 Merc with painted - or chrome- steels , flipper caps & chrome moon style caps . Three other cars got the wide whitewalls & caps now . 

OH! & a Catilac Deville  50's caravan with awning too . Cool for a diorama . 

Started on the Alfa . Naff casting & incredibly basic .

Need to find some suitable skinny wire wheels ..... 

Toying with the idea of turning it into a flathead V16 saltlake modified . 

Might upset the purists again Mu Ha ha ha !MischiefWhistling

 

 

Hiroboy can be dangerous to your health!Laugh

First ever attempt at turbo-ing the Pro Stock T-Bird was a fail . Exhaust from rear turbine against the cylinder head . 2nd go covered the A arms . 3rd attempt look like airhorns on an trans-atlantic sleeper train ! Might glue the hood down & put the 705C.I. into a model T . Moo!!!!!!! I'm a fish !

You're throwing an awful lot of money at the hobby (I'm jealous!), why buy the crappy old AMT gullwing when Tamiya have a stunning, state of the art kit available?

It's the memory of building the kit as a youngster (OMG - I used the word 'youngster'!), that's important. I enjoy building Monogram 1/48 WWII aircraft. They were fun to construct BITD, and they're still fun. I'm trying to track down all the USN war era planes RM put out, just because. First car model was AMT's 39/40 Fjord sedan. Now I'm looking for the coupe, sedan, delivery, convertible, whatever.And to be honest (never too late to start), my skills are more Monogram/AMT than Tamiya. Maybe that's why I'm holding off on my Heller 4.5L Bentley. Too good of a kit for me. I am not worthy. LOL

Someone once told me that there were engines other than the Chrysler Hemi-but thats just crazy talk!
