nah, I might have mixed up messrs walkinshaw and tullius -
of course the group 44 racing roadster is the correct car...





so far...... :mrgreen:
but I haven't bought a single cat in the last few months,
even not the one that tempted me very much (a yellow mint kit that had a missing bonnet) and that went rather cheaply...

and NO, I won't be doing the hearse :? either

whatever status they have paul,
the list contains 5 - more would require buying more...

besides, these 5 + 4 astons is by far enough for the near future,
not mentioning the rest of the list in my signature + some 190 other aston kits that need to be built :shifty:

Hum Aston's,

We'll have to check with Mark as to how long your signature can be then, as I'm sure that you'll add a lot more in the new year (well hopefully!) :)

well, paul, you might have been right,
another e-type (at least most of it...) surfaced here, lost count of the numbers and need to see which variations could be possible -
a group 44 v12 image is on the wall...

the bleach works on our e-types as well - around 2 hours on most parts - a quick brush with soap will remove the rest...

hehe, try soaking the metal parts :mrgreen: I thought I'll give the plastic parts a try before I remove the spokes...

and on an e-type matter - I need to make up a device to remove the spokes...

now, pay attention JB,

as it was fab weather and bbq on the schedule, what else could be done in the garden than this:

Image Image
cut out another hatch which is almost a boringly easy task in the meantime - you will also see that I've been busy with the bonnet ->
cut off the brightwork as I'd like to fix a chromed fillet onto the painted part rather than putting up with the foil,
also there'll soon be some drawing and planning + etching going on as the holes will be filled with etched louvres...

you thought I'd be without any work while waiting for vital db5 parts to arrive? :mrgreen:

more micro news on the e-type:

Image Image
as you might recall, original plastic part has been cut out - far too thick though to be of any use -
so a new piece has been made from 0,2 mm nickel silver - like it much more, should make a hinge as well...

Nice work astons :clap:
Petrol flap looks nice, is the nickel silver nice to work with astons, is it fairly soft.

thank you and yes casp, it's softer than brass - the piece is actually a part of the "sprue" of etchings which I always keep for "recycling",
you'll see that once I've made up a thread on etching...
