I've chosen my build already for this but am currently half way through watching the Patagonia challenge.
'71 Mustang in green would be a good build...

The box for my Top Gear car has moved from the cupboard to the table next to the bench and I have been printing off pictures from the interweb...

Cutting it a bit tight aint ya Fred?

Think I may make it this year, however there's only room for one passenger in my new car and I reckon the models might not survive the trip.





But I still have the wife's Ruckus and I think there's a SUV on the office fleet.

Hmm may have to draw straws.  Laughing

Or maybe just take the Kluger.

Hey Dee cee, the colour looks much better in the sun, it's gold metallic base with orange mica & pearl topcoat absolutely pops on a sunny day..

Bugger!

Looks like I may have to travel alone as I'm headed to Japan that afternoon.

So, up to Ballarat in the morning, then off to the airport straight after lunch.

The model car stores in Nagoya are a given, guess I should schedule a day in Tokyo to visit the Akihabira district. Very Happy

The bad news (or good, depending on your perspective) is I have to travel to Japan the following week, so I'll be headed up on Friday evening to catch up with friends in Tokyo and Yokohama, before heading North on Monday morning.  I should also manage a few hours in the akihabira instruct sniffing out more cool stuff I dont really need in all the hoby shops.

So enjoy the day and may the best models take home the gold.

Sorry about that Freddie, but since I no longer have to juggle these things to fit into family life, they can happen at anytime and take me anywhere on earth.

I promise to purchase only cool toys, whilst shopping in Tokyo and elsewhere.

Only 15 sleeps to go.

I've finished the basic car for the Top Gear thingo and am now adding the modifications the presenter "added themselves" (yeah right, course they did it themselves - i've found pics on the site of the company who actually carried out the work).
So, just a bit of scratchbuilding and then some more weathering and it's done.
It's a lot harder this year having to build to reality rather than to my warped imagination.
