Busier than ever!...

I know I'm supposed to be taking it easy after a heart attack, but I have friends all asking me to knock out a model or three for them for their slot racing habits.  And doing so, makes me think of what I want for me, too.

So I find myself Delaying the Capri I was doing for one chap, because he suddenly wants a V-16 BRM!
Here's both of them.  This was taken at about 2 pm. yesterday.  At 12-30 I was still trying to find a suitable photo-copier to do my drawings to size.  I can still get a wiggle on when I want to!  Today, at 2pm., it's finish-shaped, but needs all the details done, like a LOT of louvres.

Of course I've also been busy on my Bloody Mary model, but have had to stop to do these other shells.
And because I can never get anyone interested in my kind of cars, I may just have to make these for myself in the hope that when someone sees them done they'll want to produce a few as shells.
These in particular:-
My Trident Venturer V6
the beautiful Morgan SLR
the simply stunning Rejo-Climax, a car which makes even the pretty Lola Mk 1 look like a pram!

There are so many others too, but these'll do for the time being.


  1. The shells are looking great, Martin. Good to hear you are keeping busy and still making a mighty recovery. I have to admit that for all their shortcomings I still love Capri's...a wide boy's car for sure without much class...but sweet all the same. That Rejo-Climax is something else...what a beaut!

  2. Thanks, Iain. Yep, a well looked after Capri is still a good looking car and a Mk 2 Cortina platform is an entertaining car to drive. I loved my Cortina GT! You know you are the only person I know who has ever felt the same way about the Rejo as I do!! It's the artist's eye for sure.

  3. I've never seen that Morgan before but what a stunning car!

  4. Phil, you are far from being the only one. I phoned a Morgan dealer yesterday to start my search for a real SLR and the guy had no idea what I was talking about! I think if you represent such an important and iconic marque, you should know of what you speak! BTW, I found a real one not too far away. Hope to be measuring it soon.
