It all started with a model I did as a Birthday gift for Peter C - thanking him for all his help with our car. People saw the model and liked it, and asked for models of their cars.
Bob's model is based ona 1:18 scale Kyosho die-cast model. This is not a kit, so the first thing to do is dissmantle the model. It is then reassembled, adding detail where required, and changing all the features to match the customers car, such as engine type, seats and colour. When have you ever seen two caterhams alike?!
Richards models are based on the Tamyia 1:12 Kits. The detail in these is amazing, but I try to go one step further with more detail! With Richards car I soon found that just about every component was different from the kit. These take a huge amount of time,and I must thank Richard, and indeed the other customers who are patiently waiting for their models. they have all been very understanding in that at the moment earning 'real' work must take priority. I started making the models when I was in a period of redundancy and had far more time. They WILL be finished eventually - thanks for your continued understanding!
