    Hi folks,

    Now the Lammie's turn for paint. Opted for a duck egg blue ( Vallejo Verdigris) with whitewall tyres and cream for the seat. Still lots to do!

    Some more progress on my Lammy TV. Chrome areas under painted in dark grey, then a silver base coat. When it's dry, I'll go over it with a Molotov chrome marker, the a coat of Tamiya Smoke.

    That's brilliant, all shiny and polished like it should be.

    As a little aside I remember shopping in Petticoat Lane and there was a stall with a man selling cans of "instant chromium".

    Of course we all bought a can and it made the sides of our scooters look amazing until the sun got on it and it disappeared.

    Not one of us twigged that when he was demonstrating on a sheet of copper he was then removing it with a blow torch and starting again.

    Oh to be young and naïve.

    Decals added and the lights and mirrors are done. The TV decals will have gold centres painted on. Still the side panel beading to add and the silver adding to the leg shields. a lot left to do before getting on with the riders....!! (y)

    That is a beautiful rendition of a scooter, really good. I don't see them that often but around here (Farnborough) there is a group who have organised rides on their scooters every now and then.

    Brighton Museum had (and may still have) a large blown up photo on display which purported to show 60s rockers. In fact, photo was obviously taken in the 70s- all long hair, beards and Japanese bikes!

    I've made a start on the figures. The faces aren't quite there yet, so will need working on more, but I'm fairly pleased with the clothing, so far...!(y)

    Finally finished my "Little Sawdust Caesars". Just some pics prior to basing and making a dust cover. 1/18 scale diecast bikes, heavily modified and original figures sculpted by me!(y) 419852995_2234560183541690_7141534100491300832_n.jpg 419999438_2234560770208298_2431472708669803234_n.jpg 420018071_2234560650208310_8082314707709063892_n.jpg 420008680_2234560693541639_2546483033324647755_n.jpg 420033667_2234560836874958_8391105961547216488_n.jpg 420001407_2234561090208266_8362793656515929579_n.jpg 419994078_2234561243541584_5575857007248224501_n (1).jpg 419992074_2234561636874878_4404637975852085362_n.jpg 420023032_2234561156874926_6589901871012745921_n.jpg 420040170_2234561443541564_7200168085279830935_n.jpg
