Bentley 4.5 litre (altered version) by kpnuts 1/12 Airfix

Recommended Posts

I didn't realize that the whole back-end of the car would turn in mahogany, I thought it would be the upper side only.

And with respect to the wheels: as the respoked ones are so much better than the originals, I don't beleive you when you say you are never goibng to do that again. You will be doing it, as it is worth the time and nasty words.

Not Ducati Blue? And now a RED Bentley! I must say you're doing a fine job. Is it a replica of a real car or a little whimsy?

The wheel rims would look cool in chrome/nickel with the centres red and black spokes.

Wonder what Airfix will want for the re-release?.

Here I am, driving a proper car!

KP, your model looks fabulous. You have a bit of Wingrove in you.

So, do you have pictures of the real car? Or where can we find it?

Have you seen the Youtube video from 'Plazmo'? He wired up a set of these wheels in a jiffy, using monofilament fishing line; worth checking it out.

Hi all well I've made a big decision (I thought there was too much back end on it) so I've decided theres enough room for rear seats. There were lots of coach builders in those days and you could have it built anyway you liked if you had the money, so whose to say it wasnt like this.

The only thing now I've bitten the bullet is should I stick with a single seat or go with a double and have I gone back far enough.

Started on the seats (I will be adding padding to the edges where the red paint is when I find something suitable) I didn't do too much weathering to the seats as its supposed to be well looked after.

Hi all, done a lot of work on it over the weekend.

I've got big ambitions to make the throttle linkages up (we will see how far the ambition gets compared to how much skill and patience I have) I must say I'm quite pleased with how shes looking at the moment.

Ps look what I just ordered (cant wait for it to get here)

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.
