    of course, what i do to the real one, i try to do on the mini-me version too, so once again it was taken apart and the interior removed.

    the black carpet was scrapped off, and replaced with nice new green...




    then all back together.... and the green mats replaced!!!


    (with all the updates i've done today, (ok, bored at christmas!!) it's like a Britlude takeover with the 'new posts' button!)

    Looking at the last photo the next project simply jumped out at me .... Seat belts! If they are anything like mine then a replacement could be on the cards for both safety and cosmetic reasons ... Green belts anyone?

    seems photobucket continues to be annoying, firstly removing hosting, then re-authorising hosting, but with a photobucket legend, then now changing their rules again, now decide to retrospectively impose a storage limit below the number of pics i have on their site, and fogging all the associated pix!!! gits! anyway, i think you can click the pic and it takes you to a clear version, just a clicking faff.... anyhoo


    as we were... matching wheels....

    unfortunately i purchased new ones, so it simply won't do... so after learning how to use a 3d printer....

    pop the old centres out of the aluminium rims...

    a quick bit of paint and mock up.....

    after a sand an repaint they were mostly there!!!

    finding the limits of the 3d printer, and after 5 aborted attempts, and salvaging parts from the previous incarnation that melted in the summer heat (!!!!!) i got to this....

    i know its 'steppy' but it is less than 7mm tall and 27mm long.... i could sand it, but no! no-one noticed the previous one was a mercedes that had been tweaked with a porsche screen on backwards, so a little stepping is fine!!

    The only problem I can see with it though is that the "mini" model needs definitely to be on your rear engine cover not the dash.

    Good point Jon, so this coming year I will try my best to do the same hence putting my 1/150 on the front of my 1/12 NSR-R dash too.

    Unlike your own work of art NSX model making amazing modifications my models were all pre-made resin models and to be honest the hardest job was placing the car on the dash.

    I hope you bring it along to one or two of our gatherings next year, it would be great to see it in the flesh.

    Well done.
