Hi all next update, started the London taxi, I must say I'm a bit disappointed (not the kit it's good enough) it's just I could have knocked it out in a day easily, it is a VERY simple kit, yes it looks like a London taxi but maybe if it had a full engine or maybe the door handles were separate parts, I don't know what they could have done but it really is a simple kit.The kit is rated skill level 3 personally I think it should be level 1.

Anyway I've also started the Italari phantom 2 rolls royce (I've spent the same amount of time on this so you can see the difference) the taxi only needs the glass and body on half an hour, let dry add decals done in 2 hrs

Very well done, the detail painting is very cleanly done.

The taxi kit might be simple but it looks good after being in your hands!

This is all coming together very nicely KP. The police boxes look good - I've never built in paper or card - and is the theatre front scratchbuilt?

Hi all here is the next update, I've got to say this is THE very first kit I've ever built with no decals, not even for the dash a kit with a few disappointments the colours have codes at the start of the instructions but that is the only mention of them so apart from the box art there is no mention of what colour anything should be. Anyway here is where I am now.

That looks to be nice vintage Rolls KP. Just a small point, but is the rear wheel tyre on correctly? It shows up because your builds are usually spot on!
