A new project, bought a resin kit from Resicast and jumped into WDLR and all the related stuff.

But first, build some motive power.





The box.





The power drive.





And the start off the build.

Hi Cor  :wave:


You have been bitten by the 1:35 bug ... for sure !  :old dude:



You diverted me onto Google Images for a good HOUR !!  :time:

Lookin' at Simplex historic funky junque !  :pimp:





T :cool: :cool:   many   C :cool: :cool: L   photos to look at.  :shocked:

I now have a folder full of them, which I'm pleased about !  :thumb:


The Simplex catalogue pic. with the kinda old-skool 'airbrushed look' was a favourite.  :old dude:


Good luck with the build.  :pimp:

I'm sure it's gonna be a great model.



:)

I also like Simplexezzz.

I'm impressed with a 1/35th simplified 3D print I picked up.
