Very impressive. Are these hand painted Jim? How long does it take to make one, is there any machining involved or are they simply push assembled?? In other words if somebody like me who wouldn't know a left handed screw driver if he were handed it, be able to build one?

Noel, All you need is a steady hand and LOADS of patience. Each model takes me about 5 weeks to complete, spending a couple of hours most evenings. All parts are hand painted and there are about 250 -300 items per kit. There are very good, numbered build diagrams with each one. All parts are glued (they call it cement) and I`m certain you`d have no trouble producing something that looks great when it is completed.

Crumbs, that's 70 hours on each model. All the more credit to you, I don't think I would have the patience.
Correction, I Know I don't have the patience.

Hi Noel, This photo will give you some idea what one of the models looks like half-way through the build. The twin rear axles and suspension took almost a week. The detail (even down to the bolt heads) is astounding.

Maybe one day Jim.
At the moment I'm still engrossed in trying to produce a DVD from my camcorder tapes. Unsuccesfully so far I should add.

That's a good one, Jim. I would post my drawing of our model (in a red dress, I hasten to add!) playing the Breton harp and singing if I had the knack of photo posting......... this image is about a mole long!!!!!
