Hi all, I haven't posted on here for ages as I've been really busy. Many years ago, when cars were cheap, I had a Trident Venturer as my daily driver. Latest research says that only 45 were built! I did 18,000 miles in mine over about 20 months and loved its looks and utter reliability, but not it's performance (OK, but not great). But on the drive it was delicious.
I started doing the master in balsa wood to prove something that I have since forgotten and true to form it proved to be a pain in the arse as balsa grain is too open, the wood too soft, etc. etc. So, after making some shapes on it in Milliput filler I gave it to my son to mould in resin so I could do all the detail.
That's now done and it is waiting for something more than 3 degrees so I can paint it. It's going then, with the Piper, to Colin at RS Slotracing, who will make some copies for me and then as many as others require, but officially, as this is a free pattern from me because I just want one, it will not be in his main range, but if you ask him nicely and buy his chassis and wheels/tyres, I'm sure he'll flog you one. Same deal on the Piper GTT and the Morgan SLR, which he already has.
