Hi all starting the range rover(given to me by polux) the exhausts are moulded into the floor pan so I've tried cutting them out to make them look more like pipes than how they look now.

Love the theatre neons; it's that the so called neon cable from eBay?

like the theatre it`s coming along very nicely, i also like the way you have done the exhausts and painting the stripe looks a lot better than any decals doing a splendid job well done

Hi all more done on the theatre I'm contemplating adding lights above the STALLS and upper CIRCLE doors, unsure yet soon have to actually start the base as nearly all the car models done, still a long way to go though all the street furniture, which reminds me of another problem, I was going to have all the buildings and fountain removable to make for easier storage as this thing will be huge but what to do about the traffic lights and whatnot.
That is going to be one very big problem.

I can only agree with the others - that theatre is a great piece of modelling, KP.

Hi all I need some help here I bought some printer transfer paper to make my own decals I've printed off some police decals for the range rover. The ink seems to not soak into the paper (almost like rain on gloss paintwork) the first pic is the best of 6
Image
Also the decals when applying them are very stretchy

I think the decals won't notice when the car is applied to the dio but I would like to know where I'm going wrong.

Hi all nearly finished the range rover next up will be the transit van, I've still to make the police sign for the roof and assorted sundries like the wing mirrors and wipers got loads more work to do on the buildings not even started any street furniture I'm hoping the finished dio will be an impressive site. I've realised I've got to make loads of figures for the street as well (not something I'm looking forward to. I reckon I must have been on this one for a yr by now and I can easily see it taking that long again.
