Hi Peter

Nice cars indeed. Not sure why it's taking Scaley so long to reissue some of this stuff from new moulds.. I have got A Jaguar S100 almost finished too. It's made along the lines of the MGTD I did (in scratchbuilds)

It will be interesting to see how you handled the SS 100.

Just completed my 1931 Alfa Romeo Gran Turismo. It's a Pyro kit. Not as finely detailed as Airfix or George Turner's, but they made some interesting cars.

Some excellent modelling there Peter, Love the MG complete with its Brooklands fishtail exhaust. Where are the wheels and tyres coming from for the models??

Wheels are from Peter Seager-Thomas in the UK.

And the tyres are scalextric ferrari 375 F1 on the front and silicone rears from Tiny Motors in the U.S.

Another shot of Peter's wheels. I couldn't build a pre war car with any degree of enthusiasm without them. Not only do they look good, but they are technically correct in terms of number of spokes and side versus centre-lace as the application dictates. The spare tire below is see-through adding to the realism, ie; you can see the body panel of the car through the wheel when the spare is mounted.
