my speculative advice:
Try using the 'Direct' image link instead of the 'HTML' link. Just remember to paste the link between these: [ img ] [ /img ], just without the spaces. The 'HTML' link may not be compatible with the current Kitmaker network system.

anyway, what are the rear view mirrors made from? They look great.

The hole punches are cheep sets from Power Craft and normally on offers at Lidl and Aldi through the years as part of their DIY tools.

Can't remember how much they cost but think they were less than a fiver a set They do come in very handy if the diameter is just right ! Perfect circles every time !

One of the guys wrote on another of the forums I post on
"I bought a set this week on the strength of Nigel`s photos.

ppretail on eBay was the seller. 12 punches in the set (3mm to 19mm) at 9.45 (free p&p) and they arrived within 48 hours of ordering. Havn`t used them yet but they are heavy and look to be of very good quality."

Hope that helps Mike

Hi Ko

I did use the Direct Image version previously with success but that route leaves my posts with just the codings showing instead now !!!

Don't ya just love technology ???

Hi Ko

That is the way I used to do it too !!! The mirrors are part of the KFS bits Howard sold me and are white metal !! I had to sand them to get rid of some casting defects which is no biggy as needed polished up to get the shine !!!!

I think I have figured out that on Armorama I just need to use HTML or IMG without any coding from the Armorama too !!!

Sorry not been on for a while but hopefully was not wasted as instead of doing f all I got my head into some of the outstanding details. Still not finished as I keep finding things I need to add or do !!!! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, The TARP is something I am still not 100% happy with ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, shape, colour, texture and tie downs !!!!!!!!

Will be re-doing the tarp with a couple of options hopefully to be able to swap over if I can get the logistics right !!!!

Here is what went to Perth show and some more detailing since on the hip ring tie downs, radiator header tank and pipes !!!!!

Thanks to Pete AKA Noddy, for letting Steve Bellerby and I display with his fantastic collection on his table !!!!! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, It was great to blether and get some tips for future spray painting !!!!!

Hi Nige
I get the feeling you will be working on this for a while, as your attention to detail is astounding. I enjoyed talking to you and Steve and it added some British Military interest to my table with you great builds.
Let me know how you go with the spraying and give me a shout if you need me come show you anything.
Pete
