  1. This evening I have mostly been wondering why the badword anyone would want to assemble a car using red threadlock. Aaargh! Bought this on eBay earlier this year, and I thought it was about time I treated it to some love. Kind of wish I hadn't. :-/
  2. That’s the ones. Excellent resolution, but just not useable. I’ve used MCI before and been very impressed :-)
  3. *Finally* managed to sort the paint and fitting of this Avante 2001 shell onto my Egress (I've never liked the Egress shell). Made a new wing mount to get the wing into more or less the right position. Not happy with the repro decals I bought though - adhesion is good, but they're far too thick, so they don't conform at all to the shell. I've ordered some from MCI instead - I've had good experiences from them in the past. Still, quite happy with how it looks - need to run it now!
  4. A Mid to go with my originals, a Dynastorm and a Jamie Booth Egress please 🤣
  5. They're very good - yes, a little too pink compared to the originals, but they work very well - no leakage in mine so far, and they're nice and smooth :-)
  6. I restored my brother's old Terra Scorcher for him this summer - a great thing to work on, and a lovely car to drive afterward
  7. You can fit a 24t in there too if you need more top end...
  8. I know what you mean, although my collection is small, and they're all runners - even if only occasionally in many cases, and usually on a track. I built a couple to race with, and I've got a carpark basher, but the power of eBay means that spares are never too hard to come by - sometimes the internet is a wonderful thing. Personally I can't understand keeping things NIB (they were meant to be built after all) and runner bodies are cheap and available for most things these days. But hey, YMMV :-)
  9. There are some trestle tables and a few chairs IIRC. No food though, so bring your own (Blyth isn't far away). I haven't been for a while; really looking forward to next week!
  10. I run a set of these wheels on my rere Avante too (I keep the box wheels and tyres for shelf duties). When I built mine, there was a little yellow slip of paper that fell out of the manual that suggested you locktite the centre diff. I've - er - lost this bit of paper, but nevertheless it's worked for me on both my rere Avante and an original Vanquish... I've just used Kimborough servo savers (and if you can find one, the racing steering kit gets rid of a lot of the steering slop) :-)
  11. Great collection so far! My first car was a Ranger - that might be next on the list when the right one comes along :-) Oh, and awesome name, Barney ;-D
  12. I guess that as there's so much crossover with other kits that even if they don't rere the TerraScorcher it's not impossible to find the bits you need. I recently restored my brother's one, and it was pretty straightforward. You can also get a metal plate on eBay to fit in front of A5 which should help a whole lot when it comes to surviving crashes :-D
  13. Hello all Does anyone have a rear Mid diff case in good condition they'd be willing to sell me? Or I can trade it for a ball diff case in good nick :-) Thanks :-D Barney
  14. Cheers for that! Can you recall what pinion you used?
