Dans BMW (model) is VERY lonely a the Store, will be just sitting there for 5 weeks waiting for his delicate touch...


But I MAY (genuinely) need to CHECK on the store half-way during the 5 week lockdown,


And I MAY just bring it home...


Wonder if we can COURIER it to him under the ESSENTIAL SERVICE/Transport-related clause... ;) :biggrin:

Let m know when you have it at home, I'll come fetch it on the bike. My bike should be able to outrun a police van. :thumleft:


Glad you got that BMW at last..

I was hoping to finish building the BMW under lockdown, when there is no chance for visitors witnessing me building it. :pot: :pot:

This BMW you will build in half a day so low risk that someone will catch you working on it.

Good idea Chris!
Add a syringe and some dagga - the medicinal variety of course - to the contents and it should fly  :thumleft:
Safe landing Dan!

Ek is bevrees dat as Danie die BMW klaar aanmekaar geplak het, dit 'n vier silinder inlyn, dwars gemonteer, met 'n ketting en "tuning forks" sal h!   Of erger!  Ipv gom gebruik hy spoeg sodat hy later kan vertel hoe die BMW uitmekaar geval het.   :biggrin:

Daai boksie met die BMW smokkel seker met jou kop Danie.  BMW binne in, met "MADE IN JAPAN" op die boksie.  :lol8:

I built this Katana (Tamiya) and painted it in the exact colour scheme of the Katana 750 I owned from about 1984 to about 2004.

So, got this from BIL and gave it a try to wile away the lock-down hours.

Not paid much attention to the brand of toy (first build ever) but now I'm hooked on this shit, really enjoyed it a lot and respect the insane level of R&D that must go into producing one of these kits....Really amazing!!!

Started on the next build... Kombi Camper... Pics when done...
