Hi Everyone. I just discovered the forum. I suspect that I know many of you on this forum. I have been collecting and building for longer than I want to remember. I have sold some resin 1/32 bodies under the "qm models" label. I have been busy with my regular work and so have been out of touch. But will be producing some bodies again, in very limited numbers, with the help of John Warren. We have just completed a "redo" of the Ferrari 860. The rear on the original was "off" and we have corrected that. I have a few Ferrari 290s available. I will be sending some Borgwards down to John come the new year for some finishing and casting. A'52 and an Hansa '57. I will be posting in the scratch builders section with more information.
My other major projects at the moment are building some Lago Talbots T26s and also, using an MMK Ferrari transporter as a base to build the 1/32 transporter, closer to the original. These things take me forever.
In any case, it is very nice to find this forum. My favorite subjects are sports racing cars from the 1950s and this seems to be the place!

Hello Charles, welcome to the Sports Car Forum.
You might care to look back over the past threads where a large number of excellent builds are to be seen.
As well as a thread now and then on the stuff which you are actually doing/just finished, you might also care to add to the 'Past Sports Car Builds' board; anything from the last year or so to cars built decades ago.
I'd like to apologise to those who had the original, but I was given what looked like a half decent die-cast to measure and use as a guide. So that's what I did. I have just built my own copy and find on scrutinising the pics I've since found that the back end is right, just too low, so I cut the (10mm of) arse end off, jacked it up by about 3mm and then Milliputted all round and especially under and cooked it in the oven. Quick file up and a thumb of wet'n'dry and all is well. No extra Milli required, just some primer, but it's raining. MRRC chassis fits like a glove with Mitoos p/e wires.
