I have no problem with a race team entry, and I doubt Fred will either,
you could do the pit if you wanted and I'd consider it a single entry.

Mechanical stuff I can, but I'm limited with architecture.  ;D

Thanks for the judgement.

Architecture? I was looking forward to a grid girl or two.  ;)  :wacko:

Funny you should say that, I found a Fujimi set of 1/24 figures in The Loft and there's two girls in the set, one 'wearing' a swimming costume by De Vilbiss.............  ;) ;D

I'm good with a whole team being one entry.
And tobacco sponsorship is fine despite my vehement hatred of smoking (i'm the worst sort of ex-smoker - the zealot  ;D )

Thank you kindly, I'll get on with acquiring the various bits, but I have most of it in The Loft anyway.  ;D

I know it doesn't start for 3 weeks plus, but when can we start posting pics of 'the ingredients'?

I canít speak for Fred, for myself Iíd say feel free to start your build threads at any time,
just not the actually chopping, twirling back kicks etc. until November 1.

Go for it.  Post away to your hearts content.  Just don't start anything.

Knowing what you are planning Kit you're going to need all three weeks to lay everything out... ;D

I haven't got all the bits yet either.  ;D

I hope the postmen are on top their game this week.

Waiting on my Valom 1/144 Texan/Harvard kits to arrive, they're due around the 16th.

I've always wanted to put an aircraft engine into a car or truck. With my collection of 1/24 and 1/25 cars in need of restoration an idea is forming in my head.
There have been many racing Austin Mini conversions, as I have one in the stash there should be enough reference material on line .
 Which leaves the Jaguar E-type and Ford Crown Victoria as whiffs. The other cars are in storage boxes stacked in a cupboard. " Break glass when spares bins are empty".

Many years ago I built a drag racing Chevy van with a Merlin engine in the back, driving the rear axle through a boat V-Drive and with the exhausts going out through the roof.

It for comprehensively broken when we moved from one end of the Forest to the other in 1983, but I still have all the bits. I'll try and take some pics soon.
