Hi folks, been quite on here for a while, having gotten through a divorce, messy settlement, buying a new home and have my daughter and girlfriend come live with me, I have started up with the models and bit the bullet on this one.

Wish me luck!

Divorces are not nice things to got through, but there is life after a divorce. I've been through 2 and wouldn't change my past for the world as this all led me to where I am today as well as made me the person that I am.

It's great that you now have your daughter and new girlfriend living with you.

You can now look forward to a better future and I look forward to seeing some of your builds

Yes Casper, I got the complete kit In one of the sales they had.
Got to finish building the building area, ie man cave, and as soon as that's done modelling will resume.
Really want the Mustang as well, and do an Eleanor conversion on it.

Great Idea for the Mustang conversion, engine upgrades and fibreglass ?
I received a replacement rear wing last week for my MP44 after damaging the one so hopefully dig it out and get it finished
