And an hour or so later....

There we are.  The basic essentials of the C6 Amilcar are all there....grille shaped and recessesed, panel lines and exhaust outlet done, cockpit dug out and seat backs done.
Next is the chassis work, forward of the  grille, then the louvres and that'll be that.

I heard from the Swiss geezer for whom I made the Invicta master in, believe it or not 2013.  he still hasn't done anything with it and now claims there are problems with the model "according to an expert".  Ha!  Oldest trick in the book.  He's obviously run out of money and is looking for a face saver.  Well he's picked the wrong guy.  Why, pray, would he tell me he was happy with the model in September 2013 in a mail if there was something wrong with it.  He whinged about the front axle after a while without ever explaining what he wanted done. Now he's offering the master back for the same he paid for it!  Cheeky sod!  A second hand master goes, at best, for half price, used or not.
I am so keen to see an Invicta in the world of slot cars that I will make another one! double quick and offer it to a friend to produce.  Let the Swissman go mend a cuckoo clock!  Damned fool!
                                                          See?  Nothing wrong with it!


  1. Just what you need after a heart attack - someone trying it on. Ho hum.
    Anyway, shouldn't you be taking it easy rather than knocking out high quality work at an alarming rate?

  2. Trouble is, Paul, what's taking it easy? Sitting around just bores me. I find it more stressful than churning out the goodies! I managed 3 days after I came out of hospital, but then was back in the harness. But modelmaking is hardly taxing, is it?

  3. You are of course absolutely right! What better way to unwind and relax than with a little modelmaking project. More folk should try it.
