    Another pic of the Amon Maser. Tony says this model started out as an old Strombecker kit from the '60s which he then modified.

    Awesome models Tony. Am I allowed to show my efforts?

    A few years ago after Anne Thomson ran her Darracq up Te Onepu Hill I was inspired to convert this:

    Love the NZ tribute cars !

    I have no models anymore, but I bought these as a pair a few years back and they live in wait at a friend's place in Melbourne for some fun when passing through town. Don't even start on Jimmy's black helmet...
