This is me back to the modelling. Not done a great deal tonight but as per my WIP on the MP4/6 1/20 I have been doing a bit of juggling between my daughter and the front suspension. I have a full day tomorrow to get really into the swing of it so there should be some updates daily from now on.

Cleared bench

Posted on Updated on

So the bench is cleared for the next kit to be started. Before I do i’ll be completing the MP4/4 1/20 body work that I never got round to completing. Once this is done I was going to get on and finish the F2002 as it’s been at the forefront of my mind for some time. However, i’m still in limbo over the drive and steering system at the front end so will be getting on and finishing the Lotus 79 from 78′ that I started a while back. Onwards and upwards to the next model journey. Please keep watching and i’ve also decided to get some videos done. I’ve had a few emails relating to this so that’s something i’ll be adding to my you tube channel that i’ve never used and on here.

Model room 90% complete 

Posted on

My office is almost complete. Just need to hook up my monitor and do a few bits here and there and it’s fully functioning. Getting all giddy. Once the Mp4/2 is complete I was going to finish off the F2002 but i’ve had second thoughts between that and the Lotus 1/20 79. Not sure as yet but have a week to think about it. The Mp4/2 should be done by sunday evening. I’ll post on 365 and f1m.

       So off the back of the move and a long time setting up the room to work in i’ve managed it. Just need to put my monitor up and my spray booth which i’m collecting later on and i’ll be able to get back to my builds as of this evening. Been a long time out of this game and really lookig forward to it.  

       What to start back with is going to be hard. I’m not really one for starting something and not finishing it and i have a few on the bench. I started the Mp4/2 so will probably get back to that and the f2002. I still have some parts to get hold of for this (f2002) so need to send some emails. I’ll be dedinately updating with pics later so watch this space. 

Happy modelling 

       I ripped out my old room and luckily the spare room in my new place was decked out similar to my old one. So basically this has worked out really well. Just need to fit the spray booth and im ready to go. Really looking forward to getting on with some work. 

      All ready to go. Off to get the stand from the old house to put the spray booth on and we’re ready to go. Very excited indeed. Tonight i’ll be back on with the MP4/2 1/20 and update the appropriate thread/WIP. See you then…..

The big move

Posted on

Recently I’ve not had the chance to do much other than live look after my daughter and my day job. Getting the opportunity to do anything modelling related has been impossible till now. My hearts not been into anything F1 wise but have been looking through some forum stuff and seeing some of the amazing work being done on FB has inspired me to get on and finish some kits. So tomorrow I’ll be bringing the last of my stuff to my flat and making a space to do my work. So bare with me and I’ll update as soon as I can.

Spraybooth update

Posted on Updated on

Just managed to get a light strip for the spray booth and added it. Just need a few cable ties to pin into the ceiling of the booth and run the power cable out of the box to the mains and it’s done. I’ll be running a bit of ply or hardboard across the front to stop glare in my eyes and it’s finished. Considering what i’ve made it from and the small cost I’m very happy with it. And it functions right……..

Spraybooth is now complete and compressor and light all linked up ready to get to work.

New compressor

Posted on Updated on

I’ve had to invest in a new compressor due to the lack of power my old one was producing. Having said that it’s been a work horse for me since 2005 so has been a good piece of kit considering how cheap I bought it for.

Here’s my new one with dual air flow and a reserve tank wich is going to take a bit of getting used to.
