about at the halfway point with the SDP40 an unremoveable auto paint finnish means results are less than desired quality but hopefully with detailing it will pull round into a more presentable model

Love the idea of this thread but sadly can't see any of the photographs. Could be slow internet this side.

Could be, the domain starts "sphoto......", but behaving just the same as Photobucket was last night. Could be our end if the copying across to the updated system is in progress. If so it will be a temporary inconvenience until we switch over to the updated version.
