Hi Ken,

It's all looking rather splendid, the base is fantastic mate ! Fitting those spokes can't be an easy undertaking, but it looks like you have got the measure of it using a jig, very clever idea, the Bentley is coming together nicely too, the cloth on the body is very authentic

Awesome build! Don't envy you with those spokes Ken, but I get why you're doing it. Nice backdrop too, the first photo I saw I thought it was your backyard or something. lol Very nice work.

Well thanks for following along I dont see my boss's husband buying this now, and I've gone and taken a commission from my boss now I feel guilty now she's paid for the models and I've bought them but I've obviously not got the skills to deliver, I must have been mad to agree. I've ruined the Bentley , I will finish it but it certainly won't be on display anywhere.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
These next three pics show whats gone wrong(yes I know I could get a new body from Airfix and some decals) but to be honest I cant be asked I've lost all interest in it now, I will finish it but just to say its done and get it out the way.

Well I fixed it I filled my revell precision glue pot with super glue then I made a little hole in the air bubble and squeezed the superglue in the hole, then I gradually squeezed the excess glue and air out of the hole. I fixed the decals with a hair drier, I put it on maximum( I figured I had ruined the body anyway so nothing to loose) I heated the decals up then squeezed them flat with some tissue.

Fantastic save Ken ! You have got those decals to snuggle down tidy mate, I'm so pleased you stuck with it, you have done so much work to get to this point, it would have been a real shame if at the end you were disappointed with the build. I love the fabric effect you have added to the bodywork, it's very authentic to the pictures I have seen of the real Bentley, did you use felt to achieve the look ?

Hi pete no it was the bottoms of a pair of the missus bikini (it was the finest material I could find).
I know I've not posted on this for a little while, but I am still working on it but the stuff I've done doesn't really notice so not much point in posting pics.
Just to let you know I've not given up on it.

Hi all not much of an update (these wheels I wish I hadn't started, still I'm getting better with each one, By the time I've done the last one I will be pretty good at it).
Just to show I am still working on it.

I was wondering when you were going to have time for an update. You seem pretty busy with your commission builds.

By the time you're done with those wheels I think you'll be qualified to build them from scratch Ken. [smile]

Although I'm anticipating the completion of this build, I know you have been busy with real work. [smile]

Build on, my friend. [smile]
