    I have made contact with Gill. seems that there was some glitch in me not receiving his emails, but that has now been resolved and my jig is on its way! Very pleased to have everything resolved in a friendly and efficient manner, Many thanks to you all, and especially to Gill who responded quickly. Terry

    Thanks Charles, I have left a couple of messages for Gill on his web site, funny that you mentioned him going skiing, as somewhere in the dark recesses of my mind do I somehow remember his passion for skiing coming up before, I will wait Thanks again

    Not a dicky bird Mark, I'm very patient, I need to be, hopefully Gill will be able to get back to me Thanks for contacting me Terry
  5. Timely comments John! I suppose we are all a little guilty, my builds of late have slowed down, probably in keeping with me slowing down at the same mediocre pathetic slumber, however, i do have builds in the system, (see my posting today regarding my chassis jig) I do have some superb 1/32 resin bodies of yours John which have been sitting on the shelf for way too long, the Maclaren F1 car awaits.....

    Thanks Mark, I was fairly sure of his christian name, didn't want to embarrass myself by getting that all wrong. Thanks for your help, hopefully Gill will see all this and make contact Terry

    I'm hoping some of you may be able to help me in contacting Hobbies Plus, I'm in need of a chassis jig as mine has just turned its toes up ( me being a little bit too heavy handed I'm afraid), I did notice that Hobbies Plus has that same jig on their web page and I'm very keen to get one ordered. I did leave my details on their web page but as of now they have not yet responded, and at the risk of being a right pain in the ****, I'm keen to pursue and get the deal done. Thanks for any help Terry
  9. thanks for the "heads up" on the clear finish, I'll certainly give it a go. lovely work on those cars
  10. For some reason I've had these cars for way too long to not have done this before now, maybe, as my racing time is slipping away I seem to have more time to get these little projects done. Each car has its own story, something we could all relate to so finally all of the Lotus projects are done............... 1/24 scale Tamiya lotus 40 I got this car from a fellow Newcastle slot guy who was having a few issues with his track and I volunteered my services to see if we could fix the track,it happened to be on surely the hottest summer day just before Christmas around 2008, he just said to me during the day "you might be interested in this crap,my uncle gave it to me and I have no interest in these bits" Amongst all the assorted mess was this beauty, body was badly knocked about( sorry no pics) but most of it was there, I think the actual time taken for me has been about 3 months or so, the car is 99% original,( I had to get a repro screen.)

  11. What clear coat are you thinking of using?
  12. I should have done this before now but you know how it is.... often thinking "I'll use that one day" and I haven't, so time to move these on, Just a brief description on what we have; The Good Year bridge can be used to span a 3 lane tracks (my old track was), has rarely been out of its box. The spectators are as displayed 21 characters all up, these ,I believe, are from Scalextric. The "grandstand" is new old stock, bought way back from Roland at SlotCar Shop in Sydney, still has its original bag and is as shown. Not including postage, I'm looking for anything over $100 which I reckon is a very fair price for all this lot, I will have to calculate postage costs but I'm thinking anywhere in Australia should be around $15, but I can only confirm that once you give me your postcode, I can post overseas no problems. Just to get this lot moving I'll pay for postage within Australia, Thanks for any interest please contact me through Auslot bump Terry
