Good morning Gentlemen!!!

What are your modelling plans today?

I want to spray most of the components on Tamiya's WRX, and visit a Model shop further from Town to see if I can get a Tamiya R34 kit for the body.
And post Ales' Merc DTM car!

I like the last item on your agenda veryt much!

I'll be doing some bits and pieces, and will try to find the letters for the police car... not too sure if I'll be able to though...

nothing today...just got out of the fart sack and off to work at 11pm

Off to the model shop later today......i'm going to have a go at a truck of same kind and paint it up as a "Race car team" that can be used to carry a T/F Funny car etc.
I'm searching around the net at the moment to see what i can get.
If i cant find anything i'll just do a trailer to go on to a car to carry a BTCC Car.

The weather here isn't anything, sort of a cool, cloudy day!
Should be good enough to spray in though!
I have to go into work at 4pm and finish off a network installation!

I have done a few Trucks over the years....
I have a Peterbilt and transporter trailer set to build one day!
I just need something like 7 road cars to go on it first!!!

This one has to sit out of a case, and so is getting dusty! I really need to get a big display case like yours Warren!

Funny that you should mention trucks.

Does anyone make 1/43 European truck kits? I mean stuff like Scania, Volvo, and especially Iveco? I'd love to assemble one of those, but the 43 scale is necessary.

I have a number of Kamaz trucks in my collection, but these were not kits, but models.

NO, trucks (large ones) are in 1/50th scale!

A company called Gamme makes 1/43rd paris Dakar Trucks though, the race/support ones.

Well, my trip to Kettering was a big waste of time because the shops were CRAP!!!
What used to be a Beatties is now a Toymaster and it was full of kids stuff!
They had 5 Tamiya car kits, 5!!!
The only 2 decent ones were the Porsche GT1 and the Toyota GT-One!!! The Porsche I have got anyway!
The only one I had to think about was the Fujumi Garage set as I already have the tools!
I would rather use them in a rally stage scene anyway so I didn't bother!
What a waste of an afternoon, and this country is getting CRAP!!! It rained all afternoon so I didn't get any spraying done!!!

The place I visisted today had the Revell Mercades truck and Race car trailers sets for sale. These were in both Ferrari Challenge and Scuderia Ferrari colours.
Nice looking, but a BIG project!!!

I am happy now anyway as I just won the Mazda 787B 1991 LeMans car in Gran Turismo 3!!!

I'm going to try to buy a used Traxxas Nitro 4-tec, maybe I'll get another body and make it super detailed.
