Cheers - smol Transit now stewing in a foamy corrosive soup as I type. Will retrieve it later this afternoon and report back on progress!


Right, well... hmmm.

I'm going to guess that I either need to use more squirty foam (I had it in there for a good five hours) or that I shouldn't trust Home Bargains' finest 99p oven cleaner...

The old paint is coming off, just quite slowly. But it is coming. Rinse and repeat, I guess.

Yes, it can take weeks to come off, but it will come off and the body will be unscathed.

I had rare American annuals in the sauce for half a year until all the paint was gone, but they were pristine in the end.

Cheers for that - wasn't sure whether a single application of oven cleaner was all going to bring the old paint bubbling off like Nitromors, or just soften the top layer. Now I know, I'll keep going at it to get the rest off.

 

I'm impressed how smooth the original plastic below seems to be - many years ago, my cackhanded efforts to rectify messily painted Airfix/Matchbox kits using white spirit or thinners just seemed to warp the components, and turn clear plastic bits opaque. I really didn't know it was possible to remove enamel so cleanly.

 

I may well paint this one again, though... maybe in white, maybe in light blue. Still thinking about it. An airbrush kit may be on the cards... kinda wish I'd bought one years ago when I worked in the model shop, we stocked Revell starter kits for £notthatmuch.

 

I'm thinking of this as a dry run for my bigger Dinky LWB Transit, which will likely need the caustic soda treatment to bring it back to bare metal.

 

Stay tooned...

 

(Though, as far as plastic Transit kits go, I reckon this one is unbeatable)

The best thing is, it was built based on pics of 'Purdy', a real-life Transit that appeared on the Autoshite FB page.

As far as I know, the real-life van had some shiters involved in assisting the owner with a sympathetic restoration via crowdfunded bits after a fairly serious MOT fail, though I think that's gone off the boil a bit of late. One day, hopefully...

I normally go later on when it's a bit quieter. I went early on the last one and it was pretty busy! It's only down the Lancs for me...

No, mine was a darker blue, but anyway I never took it to Haydock.  I did that one in my lovely 820.  Which was also a much darker blue.

It's about time I posted some of my miniature shite. In particular my taxi rank.

IMG_4952.JPG

IMG_4953.JPG

The Plymouth driving away is quite rough but I still think it could be improved just by touching up. Discussing technique with Eddyramrod, Junkman and Conrad, I would like to do one of the Plymouths as a Yellow cab, and maybe do an Impala with the red roof. You guy's enthusiasm has affected me.

IMG_4954.JPG

Speaking of Plymouths brings me onto the next, as they are one of my favourite Dinky models. These are my best and favourite colours.

IMG_4955.JPG IMG_4956.JPG

Now, why is there a random transfer on the side? Because ages ago I bought the taxi and the Montreal Plymouth together as a lot on eBay and they were filthy. The pictures really made them look rough (as indeed at first glance they were) and consequently they sold for little. This is after I washed the car but still with its transfers which I believe were from a railway freight van.

IMG_2198.JPG IMG_2199.JPG

I left the car soaking in warm-hot water and the transfers were able to be removed without a trace. But for some reason I left the 'Intigo' one on, I guess it suits the car in a 1960's stock car kinda way.

What a great film. I can't say I have a favourite scene because they're all action packed with cars. I had no idea Peter Falk was in it but yes, now I can see! But if I had to choose a favourite moment it would be when Russell and Terry Thomas were trying to shake off Sylvester and that '58 Caddy bellowed its horn as it swerved off the road.

Primered up a Fiat Panda... This is going dark green.

Next project is the Lada 110 I recently acquired. Stripped it and lowered it. This is being made into a civilian car in deep red.
