I’ve completed painting these figures in the last few days; the Niki Lauda figure is a fine resin casting in 1/18th (and one of my favourites from the Racing Dioramics stable). Continue reading “Recent completions from my painting station – (updated 16th March)”
I’ve had this Phoenix metal figure in my stash for some time, and over Christmas/New Year I eventually got to paint it and I have to say it was a “fun” experience. Continue reading ““Killer Heels”!”
I eventually got Vales Inter Milan shirt sortedÂ – and curiously enough I gave him number 46 – what else??Â The paintjob went fine but the decals were a nightmare. Continue reading “Celebrations all round for; Number 46!!”
Highly unlikely – but “what if”?Â Continue reading “Valentino Rossi lines out for Inter Milan………!!! (7th Nov)”
A sight which brought a smile to a lot of faces in the parking area in Silverstone at the Moto GP (a couple of years back), was the sight of a pink Ducati entitled â€œThe Nurseâ€ â€“ Â what else! Continue reading “The Doctor’s secret weapon!”
