    Well that's a proper introduction!

    That kit, its subject, never boring! -I have been collecting information, on and off for years, reviewing other peoples builds, photographing the actual car many years ago, and a amassing a small library of reference books. Someday I'll tackle it, but for now, I'll take inspiration from your work!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you for the comment. When I started building the model, I had no idea what I would have to overcome during the construction. I had everything I wanted to adjust, but I gradually had to deal with the inaccuracies of the kit and the absence of details. Even so, I had to compromise on some things.

    Nice model Rolfi. That old Bentley kit certainly leaves a lot of scope for extra detailing and corrections.I
    It first came out about 50 years ago. Airfix changed the number plate in a re issue but never got the badge in the right place on the radiator shell.

    Thanks for watching.
    Yes, the sign on the radiator ... It's still wrong ... I watched some buildings that tried to move it, but it didn't convince me ...
    You just have to come to terms with it ... it was fun anyway :)
