Read the 'How to post photos' post at the top of the page re posting photos. It's easy.

I've sorted them out for you Red Spider. Thanks for sharing them. As GreaseMonkey says, if you want to post some more, all is explained in the "sticky" thread at the top of the list of forum topics.

TR7GT,

 

I like the TR7 GT, but where did you get the idea? Crayford made a sort of TR7 Estate called the Tracer with a Dolomite Spint motor, but it was not as nice looking as that. Shame you weren't at BL in the seventies.

Firstly, thanks for sorting the photos, I did it the same way I do on another forum, but that way dosen't work here.

And second, I got the idea for the "TR7 GT" from both the Tracer and the Lynx concept, but after I built the model this picture was in Classic and Sportscar,

I'll post some more photos of my models later.

Whos is that bloke with all the Bugattis and stuff in California? Peter Mullin maybe? Well I can't afford his toys but I have down the years collected a lot of similar cars in 1/43, Bugattis, Delages, Delahayes etc, even a Panhard Dynamic, but along with loads of others, they are stashed away in boxes somewhere. Like that other thread about hoarding asked, I have been collecting junk for so long I can't even find what I am looking for sometimes, but I do have a little galss display case in the study which has a group of models that represent a career in building real race cars down the years. Chronologically starting with a couple of March Indycars from 1990, through my years at Arrows up to the TWR A18. Real anoraks out there will notice a couple of gaps in that group, but I have them as kits, not got around to building them yet, I find 1/43rd scale a lot harder than building the real thing! Then there was the three years at Stewart GP, which was great times, followed by the Ford/Jaguar takeover and subsequent slide back down the grid. I quit at the end of '02 to emigrate, so I really should try to find a Jag R3 and R4 to complete the line up. I would have gone back further but can't find any miniatures of the F3 Ralts from the late eighties.

Still, this lot is just a memento of my career.
