Hi all, well I'm making a start on the Bentley today, first thin I notice that I'm a bit disappointed with is, when looking at the box art the front mud guard has not got much detail at all 
 
as you can see I have a load of rivets and nuts to scratch.

Hi all I've had a brilliant idea I have the Airfix 1/12 London icon pack and I'm going to hack the life guard about and have him either getting into or driving the Bentley what better than to have 2 British icons together.

Good start and this looks like a huge model Ken, great detail on the engine
Just one question though
Will you be doing a step by step when you start scratching your nuts ?

This used to be THE model that every kid wanted for Christmas.
Does it still have the rubber belts to tie the engine cover down ?

Ok guys enough about my nuts scratching or otherwise, I'm very sensitive about my nuts peanuts are my favorites.

Hi all here is the progress so far I've put a 1/32 airfix kit and a 1/12 scale tamiya kit with it just to show how big this beast is.

Hi guys and I need some advice my boss has said he would buy this model when finished and I am going to use the Airfix icon set with it. There is a reason for this as he makes the boots for the household cavalry, among other of the Queens guards. This is the background I am going to build for it.

I figured using other British icons like a telephone box or a post box obviously the post box would be easier but not sure how to incorporate them, I don't want to get this too big, so don't want to to get too elaborate. I will have the guard in his box the beefeater either standing by the door of the Bentley or getting in and the other one standing by the drivers door or also getting in. Suggestions please?

Hi all I am so cross(mostly with myself for not testing it first) I received some humbrol acrylic chrome in a spray can today, and, eager to try it out I did it straight on the bentley engine, it clearly says acrylic on the can, and I primed the engine with humbrol enamel so there should have been no problem, anyway I started spraying and thought this smells very much like celloluse paint.
now that is exactly the effect I would expect spaying cellulose on enamel not when spraying acrylic.
so now its getting the oven cleaner treatment, so take this as a warning.smell your paint first.

I think humbrol put the wrong paint in the can there is no way a water based acrylic paint should do this to plastic.
 
Now I can believe cellulose doing that.
