Thanks Jesper and you are correct Calvin, I’m keeping my eyes peeled on evilbay and second hand kit sites for the most part trying to find some of the old kits there are however a few new ones that join them.

Just also got a book ‘Ferrari 70 years’

There a few old kits that will be a challenge to find, Esci Lancia Beta for example.

Nice one Richard, just wish someone would do that Aston Martin in 1/24.

Any way my Italian garage has just had another intake plus some tools.
The black ‘sheet’ in the bag is a sheet of black flock for doing mats and carpet, they do other colours but the red and beige were out of stock, the decals are for a Ferrari 599 GTB Panamerica 20,000.
After Calvin informed me about the wheels being the wrong size on my FIAT 659 I found a set of 17” from Plamoz.

The two primers also act as micro fillers so we’ll see when I get round to using them.

Awesome mail call!

Those 17" from Plamoz are definitely much better and accurate. The alternative would have been a set from Hobby Design.

I did look for the Hobby Design set but my normal go to online automotive store was out of stock. I'll keep this other store you linked to as a back-up store as I'd not seen them before and they have a few kits that are on my wishlist.
