    thanks for your interest ..

    Well nothing much has been done since my last post , although it is a good magnet for the junk I seem to collect....

    In a low period I was all for offering it on here free to anyone who wanted to collect it and sell the bits with some value ?

    However I realised this just needs to be looked at in the long term , it is in a dry garage so only rusting slowly and once I can no longer cycle in Holland for 2 weeks with my camping gear [ visit 5 this year ] then the car can be used as a cycle replacement ?

    I am getting back into the " Old LSR " vehicles , loved them since I was a nipper ... and saw this one on the Scale Auto Mag website . Its a strange irony that a 1928 Stutz Blackhawk ( thank f**k its not the '70's one !) is being CNC'd from a CAD 3D drawing , but I love the thing regardless !

    Good luck with your build . and .. , on the beach VS Medusa !

    Dont loose your mojo, been following your build with interest, so much so I had to buy a sherpa truck for myself to rebody !

    Loss of mojo, re-doing stuff, needing a break, reckon we've all been through that!

    Looking forward to some winter reading

    Thanks for asking.

    I made a couple of bad pieces at the end of the last building session which sort of disheartened me , I knew I could not live with them as they were but seemed unable to accept I had to rip them apart and do them better ? strange really ?

    So I have been enjoying the summer with holidays/cycling/cycling holidays you get the picture...

    However I have not been idle in the brain department and a recent visit to the VSCC meeting at Mallory Park has me fired up with enthusiasm again.

    So I must assume this will be a winter build project till finished

    So now I will just get stuck in and have some progress in a couple weeks , when I have re-felted the summer house and built the new wood store [ honey do list ] oh and laid some more turf ...
