Hi John,

Excellent work. As an avid collector of French cars both model and the real thing, I'm very impressed ! Welcome to the group.

Cheers,

Kris.

Welcome to the group.

Absolutely brilliant ideas and modifications!
Love the night-time shots, very lifelike.
The Smurfs diorama is priceless!

I make my own reg plates etc using pinched GIF's & BMP's using a combo of Photoshop & Coreldraw. I print them onto self adhesive A4 paper (available in packs of 100 sheets) from Staples. I even did a 00 scale model bus in an over all advert using this method. If I can find the photos, I will post them up in the Northcord section.

i find bBurago models quiet hard to work with this one was my second attempt at a stock car (the first being the 504 on the flatbed) one seat, rollcage and the catches, ropes, plates, etc, took a while to build but i think it looks the part.
