I've got that same bike, Al, but with different box art.

This just arrived today.



A little history on the Brough:
■George Brough started the motor cycle maker “Brough Superior motocycles” at the United Kingdom in the year of 1919. It is famed for the superior quality of the products, as all motorcycles are totally hand made and it was called “Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles”.
The Brough Superior motorcycles company stopped production in 1940. However, some “Brough” maniacs in the modern age start to reborn the motorcycle under the name of Brough.
■Among all motorcycles produced from Brough Superior, the SS(Super Sports)100 was famous for its 1000cc air cooled V-twin engine, and the British military officer T. E. Lawrence (a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia) was the owner of the first batch production.

Last additions of this year,



Managed to get me one of these at last for a reasonable price, offered the guy £30 for it all in and he wouldnt accept, in the end I bedded for it and it was less than £25 so very happy indeed

I cant remember if theres loads in this mate I built it about 6 years ago.. Though this 06 Stoner version has a hell of a lot more than the 03.. Wowsers I have never seen so many its gonna put me off bike building at this rate, which is not good considering another one was delivered yesterday and I now have 15 left in my stash

Paul you got some nice kits and that balsa airplane will be fun to build but it does have a different style of building than a plastic one but you can fly it when done  

Clay you got some good kits and I'm waiting to see what you do with them  

As soon as Photo bucket starts acting right I'll post what Santa got me this year

The Fiat has very delicate suspension, as I think was mentioned here a while back.  I had one when it originally came out and suspension parts snapped.  Large scale Hawaiian and 'Stang (?) will be good for any collection.  Best of luck to everyone!

We had to go pick up our new contact lenses and glasses today, so it was a good excuse to look for the right color paint for the Wolf. The hobby shop was a bust, then Michael's was a bigger bust, BUT Hobby lobby was on the way home and it was just right. I looked at pics of the real car and found that the dark blue was so dark it looked black in a lot of the pics and that it was a solid color not a metallic. What I came up with was a color in a line of paints I had never used before. Its a line of paint called Wicked Colors by Createx. Its 061 Cobalt Blue and appears to be a really dark solid blue. So I will call it good no matter how it looks when its sprayed. The other thing I found was a 1/8 Honda Trail 70. The first motorcycle I ever rode when a neighbor was teaching me to ride when I was 9. I have since owned a couple of my own. The one the neighbor had was an H model in the bright green metallic. So I picked up the appropriate color.

I also looked up the Hobby Lobby website on my smart phone and saw that there was a 40% off coupon that expired today. That was the clincher.

Don't want to rain on your parade Sam but that blue doesn't look dark enough.

If you can get it, Zero paints sell the correct shade. I know someone here or on the other site recently got Zero paints over there...... I think it may have been from Canada.
