Thanks, gorby. Step 12 slowed things down dramatically but I'm back on the wagon or should I say coach
Well impressed with your progress so far mate - it looks amazing!
When do you start building the horses? 😉
Thanks gorby, horses would probably be easier than what I'm doing ATM.
I've never worked with brass rod before. Currently trying to flatten 2mm brass rod enough to drill a 2.1mm hole in it.
Apparently brass is work hardened, this would appear to be true because I broke my flat pliers while trying to hammer the brass rod ends flat
If anyone wants to see a more detailed run down of the construction check out my videos on Tinman's scale models YouTube channel
Well done for sticking with it mate and making such a good job as well. The brass work looks excellent!

Does anyone know when this kit is being released

They have some cool stuff
It looks like the Hachette Build the Spitfire is an Agora Models product.
I guess no one has heard of them because I had to add the company to the database
They also have an E type Jaguar
They do look good, but much too pricey for a tight git like me.
Yes, very expensive

Started buying this in July 2020.
Already ten issues behind.
Currently have 27
May 24, 2021
When I receive the next lot of these I've bought I'll have seven parts to find
5,7,8,9,98,99 and 100
This is a partworks model of the Fokker Dr.1 released by Hachette in 2004.
I started purchasing the editions but was soon out of work and ended my subscription.
I purchased all 100 editions on ebay for a good price.
I am in the process of purchasing a significant amount of the editions so I can have a second one to eventually construct
So these were 3.99GBP, $10.95 for me each.
100 parts that is $1085 total with about $10 off the first two combined.
I purchased twenty for $178 and am getting eighty seven soon.
Which will leave me with seven I don't have because six are in the lot of twenty I bought

There is an Idea boxing of this kit and three have recently been listed on ebay in Australia.
Bidding has gone absolutely crazy on them.
With one sold for $140 plus $12.20 post and another currently at $143 plus $15 post with two days to go.
The third I purchased for $300 because it was two kits in one box.
I want it for my collection but also to take a picture of and upload to the database.
I also discovered a rebox of the Hobbycraft version that's not in the database
So I've just purchased one of them on ebay from the States for a heap of money too
Second kit listed sold today for $259 plus $15 post.
So I did alright buying two for $300 post included.
I'll be able to sell one reducing what I paid
So my ebay listing of the one kit minus box ended today at $178.50 post included.
In a truth is stranger than fiction scenario the guy I purchased the two kits off of purchased the kit I listed. Apparently he had seller's remorse.
So I'm relatively happy

I bought a parts box kit. It's Aussie made, would have been rude not to
I don't think you'll regret it
I've been trying to clean my cavalier kit. I think its been sitting in its own melted tires for too long. Whatever the tires were made from, its attacking the resin in the other parts. Some parts have turned soft. The steering wheel is soft like cooked spaghetti. One of the wheels has swelled up.
If you have one of these, drag it out and clean it up before it turns to mush!
That's no good Rod.
I have two of these kits and one had soft parts.
I just thought it was badly made resin, didn't even think it could be a chemical reaction between the resin and the melted tyres but you're probably right.

Am I a total idiot or is this not a picture of a Corvette?
As i searched the web, there are some kits outside whoe had a stamp on the side of the box called "1959 Corvette"
That's one expensive kit
Yes Wilky, thats nuts

How many times is this incorrect picture used?
They used the same Box for:
1959 Ford Galaxy
...only had a different stamp on the side of the box with the Model inside.
Correct in my view is "3 in 1 Customizing kit" - no brand, no make from the model inside.
The same was made in:
-> 1960 "3 in 1 Customizing Kit" (Mercury, Corvette, Buick, Chevrolet, T-Bird or Galaxy)
-> 1961 "3 in 1 Convertible Customizing Kit"
-> 1961 "Compact Car Customizing Kit" (Comet, Falcon, Ranchero, Corvair, Vaillant, Tempest)
Problem is, that they used the same box. On one side, there was shown the different cars that were available, on another side in a white field a stamp what kit was inside.
