*** A really enjoyable thread, thank you.

Superb from start to finish - and wonderful precision in plastic scratch-building! The underframes and drive train structure are truly works of art and miniature engineering too.

Overall, they really capture the prototype look beautifully!

I am looking forward to seeing the final roof detail and windscreen wipers when they are added...

*** It certainly does - I really enjoy watching these models evolve from nothing.

They are all a pleasure to look at - creating such things from flat sheet takes time and it needs seriously good judgement to turn 2d images and drawings into 3d items - plus your workmanship is excellent, consistently well done and finely finished, even before the paint coat arrives.

Thank you for sharing the projects.

*** it is a real pleasure to see the photos of your modelling. The quality and attention to detail are inspiring.

*** As always with your builds - Wow!

Detail and quality of build are both exceptional. A real inspiration to look at.

regards, Richard
