I took a few months after my house move to focus on my VW Beetle restoration. I haven't done much with my collection lately, however I found myself going through a bin of bits and outfits and thinking of all the possibilities. I then sat at the table for 3 hours, mended some men, kitbashed some outfits and remembered how fulfilling, relaxing and fun it all was. I have missed you guys and love the work you have done in the last few months!

Yeah!! VW Restoration sounds fun too though mate. My first car was a Ford Prefect 100E. I did a complete bare metal rebuild on it as the floor/chassis was rotten. Great fun, though British bikes, which I restored many were way easier Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Years ago there was a guy who lived on farmlands around here that collected those
bugs like we collect Joe or Action Man... lol!
He had at least 100 of those cars sitting all around the outside of his house...

Thanks for sharing the pic of your VW car Actionjon! Very Happy
Hopefully you can successfully get her fixed up in the future!

Brings back memories Jon. Took me about two years to restore the 100e popular. Full bare metal rebuild. I had my dad's help Wink great memories of driving whilst sitting on a milk crate without any doors on it. My dad was a whizz with all things mechanical. He fitted the cotter pins on the push rods with only two screw drivers whilst upside down (side valve engine) we didn't even have the correct spring compressor hence the need for a second screwdriver Wink lol!
