It’s been a short while since i last updated on Project 944 and this blog in general, so i guess it’s about time to type away on this keyboard of mine. In truth, there’s nothing too horribly exciting to mention other than a lovely bunch of stamps arriving from Germany (you can see it in […]Read more "Project 944: Getting on"
No, the project isn’t finished, quite the opposite, the car is still in pieces and another order of parts just arrived (a much smaller order thankfully). BUT, the dashboard vinyl re-wrap has just been done, collected and delivered from the upholsterer, 8cushion, back to R2D.

(You can see this car’s original guards red paint in the above pic!) After much frustration and heartache and not much joy, […]Read more "Project 944: Rebuild or bust"
The acceptance that nobody/nothing can be perfect, allowing them to come to terms with their imperfections yet not allowing these imperfections to define them and instead of hiding their flaws, they embrace them. This is pretty much the top definition of “Perfectly flawed” as found on urbandictionary.com and i think it sums up this model […]Read more "Perfectly flawed: GT Spirit’s 1/18 RWB Porsche 964"
These days, the letters GTI need not much of an introduction, having sold millions around the World and spawning a multitude of rivals, the pocket rocket from Volkswagen has now come to represent the quintessential hot hatch. It might not have been the first (We’re looking at you Autobianchi!), but it definitely was the spark that lit up the […]Read more "Keepin’ it real: Mk1 Volkswagen Golf GTI"
