I'd love a Val.  A Charger for preference.

Just one of the pool cars.  CEO has one of those 6 wheel Fuhrer Mercs. :mellow:

Bit more done today.

Drilled and grooved Monster Disks?  :o

It's certainly going to stop, even if it is an engine-less kerbside.  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

They are the kit disks.  Painted with silver enamel and then washed with black.  Came up pretty well if I say so myself.
Shame the wheels mostly hide them.

As it's a kerbside model, you could forget the wheels, put a few bricks under the car, as if someone had stolen the wheels... ;D

They'd probably nick the discs too, they're sooo shiney. :mellow:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Or use different wheels.  I have a number of sets of Aoshima aftermarket rims and as they all use the same mounting system they are easy to swap.  Some of them are more see through.

I've got some 1/25 besser blocks (=breeze blocks in UK & cinder blocks in US) in an AMT kit in the stash.  Can't remember which one but they are in there somewhere.

Just checked the rules to confirm what I thought - the one week GB lasts 9 complete days (seems we can't even leave standard concepts of time un-whiffed!).
Meaning I still have 36 hours left.
At risk of putting the mozz on myself - I should finish this...

It's so classy and subdued that I don't recognize your style, Fred.  :rolleyes: ;D
