    ...my 1/8th builds !

    .....Fleeting visits, I’m afraid.
    As some know, I was a prolific builder of 1/25th scale, but after a dire eyesight diagnosis, I gave it all up, left the forum 3 years ago and sold most of my models. But, it’s not easy to give up a hobby that has lasted a lifetime, so after a while I started building in 1/8th scale, larger parts - but need small detail, however taking my time and not compromising my sight.
    I have finished eight cars now, and for a time I was showing them on Facebook’s Large Scale Models forum, but the rolling pages of the internet gave me sight issues, so I had to leave there too.
    Here are my 1/8th’s....lots of scratchbuilding....more images to follow.


    ...old enough to know better !!

    I’ve owned this ‘32 for over 20 years, and has been altered to reflect that period,
    it actually fell to bits after picking it up one day, but I kept the original colour, when
    pastels were in vogue.



    ....on my drive a couple of years ago !
