Whilst working on the cockpit, I thought "This would look better with lighting".
So now I'm waiting on the arrival of some LED's and Optic fibres.....
Cockpit lighting, periscope lighting, wingtip flashing beacons, Landing Lights in the nose wheel & wings........who knows where else?!?!?!?

That's a very good question! My endeavours on this project (and any modelling, really) have been severely hampered by one thing - WORK! - I have also extended the scope of this project, in that it now will include a diorama base, with a couple of trucks - I have started work on the "German Fuel Truck".
Sorry about the lack of progress, but thanks for your interest!!

This is looking like it'll end up being a remarkable model. Lets hope it doesn't take another seven years. ;)

I built this for a bit of fun while getting back into the hobby - probably going to make this a "What if?" Australian version - dont think it ever got to Australia! Might get some decals on it in the next day or so. Glad you like it!

Has anyone got a copy of the English instructions for this Otaki, Doyusha, or Entex kit.
If you do, please scan them accurately, and contact me - Thanks - Roger T.

Just Love Minis, wish I could afford one - I never thought they'd become so expensive, you used to be able to buy them for pocket money anywhere.
17. June, 08:08
Roger Trewenack
Thanks Chaz - my first car was a Mini, not a Cooper S, but a 1970 Mini K with the 1100 motor, and it was pretty quick. Never could afford a Cooper S, either. Closest thing to it was my 2010 VW Golf GTI Adidas, really miss that car!!
17. June, 08:16

I had a 76 Mk3 that never got on the road, but came with a 998 Cooper engine that I put into an 83 Mayfair, instant Flying machine, Wish I'd kept it

My sister has a '69 Mini K and one of those BMW Cooper S
17. June, 11:32
Roger Trewenack
I noticed you said "has" - that'd be an interesting combination, especially swapping from one to t'other!
18. June, 22:37
Chaz Gordon
It's not easy switching between an original Mini and most other cars, not many vehicles have the control offset of a Mini. I seem to recall the Pedals AND the steering wheel being to the left of the drivers seat centre (right hand drive) and the wheel being at an angle more common in a truck than a car.

I also remember driving the Mayfair over 120 miles at a time, and as I was on my own, adopting a cruise driving position that involved my left arm on the passenger side headrest, and my left foot in the passenger footwell. I have the feeling that at some point I may have managed to drive the car while sat entirely in the passenger seat.

Who knew that the Mini's controls would be closer to those of a revolutionary supercar than anything else on the road.
18. June, 23:10
Chaz Gordon
Build is coming along great. The kit really shows why they took so long to put servo assisted brakes on the Mini, there really isn't anywhere good to put it, and I believe they had to use a remote brake pedal linkage on the LHD version. The original could be converted to LHD in a couple of hours by moving parts, and changing the steering rack and a couple of brake pipes (you could flip an RHD rack upside down, but the wheels went in the opposite direction to the wheel if you did that. All of the mounting holes were covered with plates that could be switched to cover the now empty holes on the other side.

Yes, has both ATM but might sell the BMW because she just bought a Golf GTI

Ohhhh! Sold my Golf GTI Adidas nearly 2 years ago, and still long for that feeling. Great car!

I did a couple of turns without any throttle changes, then headed back to Duxford. The pilot took over when we got to landing approach & landing - probably a good thing!
Have probably had the controls in 4-5 aircraft, including a tandem glider - Now that was Fun!! Definitely a must try!

Hi Wilky, Steve from Ronin Graphics will be re-releasing them via facebook soon (allow a couple of weeks, I guess) His website is: https://roningraphicsaustralia.com/ - I'm gonna search for the Facebook presence.
He's just helped me out with a 1:32 Mirage set of decals, so I'm very happy with his service!!! !;^)}

No worries.

I'm not going to write here what I think about Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg.
Suffice to say that I think my data belongs to me not some greedy so and so.

fair enough!! - I'll keep an eye out for you, if you like? I'm in FTG, Vic, by the way!
13. May, 06:00
wilky
I'm in Victoria too but the other side of the state.
I couldn't work out where that was so I had to Google it.
Now I know.
I've bought some kits off of you.
I'd appreciate if you can let me know when those decals are available
13. May, 06:06
Roger Trewenack
can do - no problems!
What were the kits I sold you? Hope they were to your liking?

Ah the M1, what a great choice, they just look so damn good, especially in Rossi livery ;)
Those jigs look excellent, I think I'm sold on one now.
Is there a good amount of adjustability for different scales? 1/12 is a minimum for me & up to 1/6
13. December 2019, 10:27
Peter Hardy
It can be used for 1/9 Monkeyface. I haven't used it myself for that scale as yet but I have seen posts where it has.
13. December 2019, 22:38

Cheers Peter!
I'm assuming that 1/9 will prob suit some 1/8 & that covers most of my Heller & Revell stash.
