i like it jonathan - no filler ,not in the spirit at all. did wonder though if you had posted this on the right topic . didn't you mean to put it on crashed micro's  :D

Hehe good one!

It looks worse in the picture then it is, but yes, it must have had some sort of crash!  ;D

Its going along fine now, I done most of the wheels, lacquered the outside (that touches the ground), so it doesnt chip off, finished painting the nose white, with 3 coats of white.

I'll do the ali now.

I can see it coming. The Boddingtons wheeling machine. Drink till your liver is nigh on dead and get a free wheeling machine. Then these metals and alloys are not the easiest to work with as are they very malleable after processing? Annealing etc? Most of the models I have seen avoid compound curves unless they were present in the formed donor container. Got a very nice 2CV. An interesting hobby and a test to find the limits of possibility. Not done this myself. I was seduced by plastic card and ended up making equipment selling it to War Gamers. The demand for Elephant Tanks and such was quite lucrative for a while. A whole lot easy medium than recycling tins.

Hehe tin model making is a lot more fun than plastic card models! Plastic card is hceating, you dont need to straightne it for a flat surface!
