  1. I will check where I got them from (was quite a while ago will have to go through my emails. There are quite a few screws missing from the detail up kit.
  2. Remember the weird bit before anyone got any ideas. Bit of work done on the hoist
  3. Next update working on the rear wheel this is what pocher would have you use. So for the horrendously expensive price of £7.50(including postage)I got these. Money well spent, the eagle eyed among you will notice I even put the yellow paint on the allen bolts to show if they have loosened. They would even have you attach the rear sprocket with Phillip's screws.
  4. Did some work on the engine (as I said at the start because this kit was designed to be built complete I had to overcome some problems firstly the carb intakes were blanked off so I had to drill those out. Then of course I had to bung the hole up with some rag to stop the dust getting in there. Of course all workshops need a bench.
  5. I think you're justified to have an ego on this there is some excellent modelling skills being shown here.
  6. Thanks Mark I've built loads of these fantastic tamiya kits. Well all garages need a spray boothe so I had a go at making one.
  7. By now I couldn't resist putting together what I'd got.
  8. No guesses oh well. On with the build. Joe likes a cup of steaming coffee.
  9. Hang on what on earth is this, how could this have anything to do with Joe's truck.
  10. Well I've spent most of tonight working on the exhaust (it goes down and under the car on the original version) it has to come out through the side panel on this version and on the actual car would have nuts to undo in order to move the exhaust and open the side panel. On this I obviously cant glue the exhaust to the manifold as I wont be able to put the side panel on and I cant put the side I've managed to figure a way to do it similar to the way it would have been done on the real car (will post pics when I've painted it all)

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
