Hi peeps,
Nigel here.I moved to england last year just before suffering a stroke.. getting better now but it still afects me,my right side is messed up and I can walk with the aid of a stick.My dexterity is dodgy too! I lay in hospital and wondered how this would affect modelling. :aah: Well it does and badly too,anyway I am doing a mk2 Mustang at the moment.

It is a pro stock vehicle so most of the mods are done for me.

Sorry to hear about that Nigel, I'm sure your doc will be impressed that you're not giving up the hobby as it is probably great therapy. That build doesn't look at all shabby, keep up the progress on all fronts.

Yeah sure, I'll mostly be hanging out at the L & C/Splash tables. If you need a break, come and find us for a sit down. We'll be in Hall 2, Row F, opposite end to the Revell trade stand.

Cheers Andy,it is.... :thumb:

Paul,I will take you up on that offer of a seat s my balance is shot to hell plus the general level of fatigue I expect to kick in....Sleeping on sat night wont be a worry! :whistle:
Made a bit of progress,the destructions call for the subframe to be fitted then engine in followed by the headers....The headers are tricky to fit so.... Deided to remove the suframe and fit the engine to it,then came fun... with... the... headers!!!!!
I had to spread the headers between branch 2 and 3 to get it around the subframe which I found somewhat tricky!!
Posted Image

The dizzy had to be shortened to it then the inner wings went on,not a fantastic fit but that is my fault.

Well decided to have a crack at the 'fake Ferrari' I see every kit that I do as therapy but in different ways. :D
Not finished the Mustang yet but I often have several on the go at the same time...

The Boranni wire wheels were given a wash to bring out the detail and then given a couple of coats of gloss clear to help protect the chrome.
Posted Image

The chassis (a Corvette chassis btw) was masked and detailed as best as I could do.
Posted Image

Likewise with the engine,nect here will be drilling the heads etc.
Posted Image

The shell,I am thinking of electric orange over a white base.

On the 'vice' car the suspension has been fitted to the floor.
Posted Image

A slight change of plan with the wheels,the Monogram style wheel I found to be a real pig o fit to the vinyl tyres even after heating the tyres,so these are going on instead.
Posted Image

Mustang time,got the floor and shell together today.

Well got the foil done today - not sure on the screen but it was easier than masking it and risking Mr Murphey turning up LOL.
Posted Image

Did the vents on the scuttle black.
Posted Image

Did the Pinninfarina badges in foil as well as the lower edge of the sills/rockers.
Posted Image

Then cleared it all.

Back to the Bugatti,
Decided to have a go at the bulkhead and dash today,it is supposed to have a wooden dash so...the dash was covered in tammy tape and then using wood markers (scratch repair pens really) built it up - there are 3 shades so you can have some variation..
Posted Image

Posted Image

Then it was given 2 coats of clear,it looks ok in real life.
Posted Image

Then I built up the clutch,it sits half way between the engine and the gearbox which is attached to the rear axle.Also attached to the clutch is the starter (naturally!) but also the electrical generator...

There is an exhaust manifold shroud and it was in creme plastic,so I decided to foil it.It is a proper aloy and pretty tough but in this case it looks great to me as it actually looks like an alloy sheet that has been worked into a shield.
Posted Image

Before stitching the dash together I decided to give the dials a wash - but decided to give them a modern touch in blue..
