Wild willy 2 20th anniversary

Thanks - I used Tamiya AS-19 Intermediate Blue (US Navy) - it drys nice and quickly. Thought it went well with Willy's racing suit which is AS-20 Insignia White (US Navy).

Thanks Steffen, I used the Mk2 SRB Main Engine from Knight Customs and it fits in the Buggy Champ without any modification and I found it a joy to work with. I’d forgotten to mention the dampers - I used Tamiya primer which is pretty good on metal and then TS-47 Chrome Yellow.

... indeed, the other two in my showroom with drivers certainly have a bit more ‘fun’ about them.

Painting the holiday buggy interior

I found a Vallejo Game starter set for a reasonable price and they seem really easy to use - the only time I feel comfortable using a brush (when mistakes can be wiped away with water!)

Avante tribute

Really appreciate the feedback; certainly took a few extra hours with the design work but the whole project was a labor of love borne out of respect for Tamiya.

Painting the avante interior

I made it out of thin plasticard. My trick was to make two at the same time; holding them together I’d sand a side and then flip one over so that I had a template to sand the other side to. After a few flips both were identical and symmetrical. (Might not be the clearest of explanations but hope that helps!)
