Thanks all for the kind words :)
Recognise the buildings Paul? ;)
Cheers Mark :) Actually the kitbash you refer to is a DH 9 heavily modified with bits of a Bedford truck, I call it the Bearco :D And you’re right it does have a ‘realworld’ feel to it, intentional,the MGs are actually  in scale,period flimsies etc.

The 'Bearco' is exactly what I have been looking for to spark my enthusiasm for MM 34. As much as I delight in the cars of this era, THIS is the look I have been chasing without knowing. Big, damn tough, believable. I can imagine that surviving the roads of the Australian outback, but not a Bugatti Type 59!

I'm off to Google 1/48 DH4's! Oh, and Brisfits, now I think of it.

And SE5a's... and...

oh dear...  ::)

Funnily enough I’ve seen a couple of Bugattis race,still going strong at Wakefield Park,in addition to plenty of ‘specials’. Very Mad Maximilian  :)

Unfortunately Mark it’s a bit far,that’s Western Australia,I’m in NSW. However if I had the right car...wonder what my wife might think? I could do with another classic without seatbelts*,and a straight six :D
