Yes i have about 6 models for review. i have taken the pictures but i just havent had time this week to write the reviews. there is a king and a pannier tank and a 14xx on its way and a couple of others.
I have seen the finney rover on the flesh and it really is THAT good!!
I look forward to the reviews, but have to admit that I was hoping that the Rover was not quite as good as it looks. Now I really wish I could afford it.
What I can't imagine doing is painting over such a beautiful thing.
It's the mixture of different metals that I find attractive, but on re-reading it transpires that some of this is plated - the model is a mix of brass, nickel silver and plated pewter (?). It probably tastes horrible
(memories of nickel silver cutlery that the silver plate has worn off...)
I'd go for lacquering on that particular model, but agree that brass painted with transparent or semi-transparent paint is really stunning.
