Your work is really magnificent as always and your sense of humor shines through... the Rolls Royce camper and now the Batmobile hearse... and wasn't it you who also made a Reliant Robin in Batman-livery with Robin at the wheel some time ago?
 

 

I did this one back in March 2012...

Very nice work, as usual. I really like the Corgi Thames and the Dinky Artic truck. Your Dinky box looks good too.

and the last one for August 2012 was another Bat~Hearse...







I've started to use screws on my Batmobiles now... makes it easier to re-assemble

and saves clamping it up waiting for any dummy rivets to set when glued...

They look real good. Especially the players graphics.

in Sept 2012... 2 weeks Holiday and just the 2 customs finished...

the 1/43 scale Oxford Damiler Hearse as a "Checking Out Cab Company"

(I did a 1/76 scale one a year or so ago and alway's wanted to do the 1/43 scale... so I did...)

stripping the modern diecasts down is harder due to the amount of plastic trim, Lights etc... on the models... some thing get damaged when taking apart... I replaced the grab handles above the rear window with silver plated wire, the plactic chrome ones were stuck in and melted in the paint stripper (which was my intention to get rid of them)

same with the side lights at the front... I used Micro Scale clearfix to make new ones









 

 

Matchbox Foden Steam Wagon was the other in Sept...

"THE FODEN BEER MONSTER" Truck....

Pontiac was a North American Indian Chief. From the Ottawa Valley here in Canada,


Pontiac or Obwandiyag (c. 1720 – April 20, 1769) was an Ottawa leader who became famous for his role in Pontiac's Rebellion (1763–1766), an American Indian struggle against the British military occupation of the Great Lakes region following the British victory in the French and Indian War. Historians disagree about Pontiac's importance in the war that bears his name. Nineteenth-century accounts portrayed him as the mastermind and leader of the revolt, while some subsequent interpretations have depicted him as a local leader with limited overall influence.
