They look good to me. Replacing the pics is tedious, but it will be worth it

Thanks Roy
A few photos added each day and I should have it done in a few days then on to my MP44 thread. Still working on the Bentley and collecting bits and bobs to do a sealed diorama in the shape of an old workshop.

Thanks Morris, very kind of you to say.
It’s still a work in progress I’m afraid mate, I have been unable to continue due to home improvements and my son has claimed the spare room for his Lego city so the Bentley is in a plastic tub awaiting my attention. :whistle: :roll:
My MP44 needs a little work to complete also so should get sorted and carry on with this and other projects.
Think it’s just the windscreens and roof covering to do, oh and the steering wheel.
Thanks for your kind comments and for looking in.

Had a quick look on fleabay for the Bentley kit and was surprised to see how much people are asking for it :o
I come across a French builder who sells the laced wheels, They look really nice. I have thought in the past about having a go as i have a second set of wheels and tyres spare, I wonder what size the brass is he used :think:

Those wheels are cool! - Where did you get your mesh from or what was it you used on your build....?

If I remember right I used some mesh from a car body repair kit for the tank and smaller mesh for the screen is from a food strainer of all things :lol:
The wheels are not too bad with the kit and look good enough for me but I'm sure with a lot of patience someone could do a more realistic set with brass wire.
The hood was proving to be a little tricky to mod so I really need to get it out and look at it with fresh eyes.
thanks for looking in Morris :)
